About Electrolysis Treatment

Electrolysis is a hair removal solution that uses an electric current that creates heat energy to permanently destroy hair follicles. It’s a long-standing, proven method of eliminating unwanted hair, and the only treatment option for white, blond, grey, and red hair. Our expert electrologist inserts a fine, sterilized probe into the follicle opening before releasing a gentle pulse of electrical energy.

This pulse effectively destroys the growth cells and prevents hair from growing back after it is eliminated. This treatment is safe, effective, and permanent, an ideal alternative to laser hair removal when laser treatment isn’t an option.

When you visit SKINS Derma Care, our expert clinicians will consult with you to recommend a course of electrolysis treatments to help you achieve your goals. We’ll also recommend aftercare procedures, complementary treatments, and ensure your comfort throughout so you can focus on looking and feeling your best.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is treatment safe?

Yes. For over 125 years, electrolysis has been a safe and popular hair removal treatment.

Why Electrolysis and not Laser Hair Removal?

Electrolysis is safe for use on all areas of the body, while laser treatments have greater limitations. Electrolysis is also the only US Food and Drug Administration-approved method of permanent hair removal. Electrolysis is also effective at removing all hair colours on all skin types, while laser treatments are only effective at treating hair with pigment—white, blond, grey, and red hair doesn’t respond well to laser treatment.

Is treatment comfortable?

The most uncomfortable part of treatment is the placement of the probe. It may cause minor discomfort, depending on the treatment location. Once it’s in place, the current and heat energy register for most patients as a simple warm sensation. Depending on your level of pain tolerance, this can either be slightly uncomfortable or present no issue at all. Topical anesthetics can help ease any discomfort.

How long will treatment last?

Because each hair must be treated individually, it depends on the thickness and consistency of the hair in the treatment area. Achieving optimal results may take multiple treatments, depending on your body type and hair growth.

Will electrolysis remove blonde, grey, or red hair?

Yes! In fact, it’s much more reliable than many laser treatments at removing all hair types and colours.

Where can I have treatment performed?

The abdomen, legs, breasts, face, and eyebrows are all ideal treatment areas. Because this treatment is non-invasive, there are typically no side effects, though some patients report mild tenderness or redness in treatment areas.
