Frequently Asked Questions


Q. Why should I choose electrolysis over other hair removal methods?

A. Electrolysis is the only permanent hair removal method, and it is recognized as such by the FDA.


Q.  How many treatments are needed?

A.  The number of treatments varies with each client. Factors such as hair growth, cycles, heredity, hormone function, previous use of temporary hair removal methods, certain medications, and stress influence the treatment program for each individual.


Q. Are all hairs eliminated with one treatment?

A. Deep, coarse hair cannot permanently be eliminated in one treatment, so treating the hair growth cells and roots will require additional treatments.


Q.  What does electrolysis feel like?

A.  The treatments can sting, but individual tolerances vary greatly. Even a sensitive person should be able to tolerate the treatments. The sting is quick and is then over.


Q.  Can hairs be removed from moles?

A. Electrolysis can be performed in most moles, but with written permission from a physician/ dermatologist after the area has been examined by the practitioner.


Q. Can electrolysis be done on breasts?

A. Yes. This is a common area of unwanted hair for women of all ages. 90% of women have breast hair. However, the subject is seldom discussed. Electrolysis can remove it permanently, even from around the areola (the area around the nipple)

Professionally performed electrolysis safely and permanently eliminates unwanted hair from the breasts and other sensitive areas with unsurpassed results.


Q. Does it hurt there?

A. Most women are highly motivated to have the hair on their breasts removed and accept the treatments quite well.


Q. What about darker skin?

A. Dark skin can be challenging for some hair removal methods but not for electrolysis.


Q. Will electrolysis cause dark spots on my skin?

A. Temporary hyperpigmentation (dark spots) is the darker skin equivalent of the temporary redness sometimes experienced by those of lighter skin. If you have been tweezing the hair, the irritation can cause dark spots. The dark spots are a sign that the skin is doing its job and healing the irritated area; they will fade over time. Do not use bleaching cream on these areas, as this can cause light spots (hypopigmentation) when the skin returns to normal.
