Questions? Call Brenda!
- Do you waste time tweezing?
- Are you embarrassed by unwanted facial or body hair?
- Do you get ingrown hairs when you wax or shave?
If so, then electrolysis may be for you!
Believe it or not, excessive hair is a problem that affects many women and men - you are not alone. Women have been tweezing, shaving, waxing and chemically treating unwanted facial and body hair for years only to be forced to repeat the process each time the hair reappears.
The only procedure known to permanently remove hair is electrolysis.
Over a period of time, hairs become smaller and lighter until they are permanently removed.
Many hair removal methods provide temporary relief for the problem of
unwanted hair but, in some cases, they can even compound the problem. Waxing
and tweezing strengthen the hair root, resulting in darker and thicker
regrowth and frequently cause ingrown hairs.
What about laser hair removal?
The biggest problem with laser is that it works best
on very white skin and very dark hairs. Laser has to see the color of the hair as a contrast to
the color of the skin so it does not "see" blonde or white hairs at all. And if your skin is
olive or darker, the laser also has difficulty seeing the hairs. There have been several
different laser machines and techniques in the last few years "reporting" permanent hair removal,
but so far, many are just temporary. They retard hair growth of dark hairs on light skin for
several months but treatments need to be done every 2-3 months for quite some time before seeing
good results. It is still very expensive and there are frequent changes in the laser field. One
day they will invent a machine that works on all colors of skin and hair, but, at the current
time, it is too expensive and not nearly permanent enough. There is also a far greater risk of
injury with laser treatments than with electrolysis.
What areas are commonly treated by electrolysis?
Women commonly receive treatment to the eyebrows, upper lip,
chin, underarms, breasts, abdomen, bikini line and feet. Men frequently have electrolysis
performed to contour their beard, neckline, back or shoulders and also for thinning their
How does electrolysis work? What should I
I will insert a small probe into the
hair follicle, alongside the hair; it does not puncture the skin at
all, it merely sits beside the hair itself. A very slight amount of
heat and electrical current is then applied through the probe which
damages the hair root and the hair slides out. The hairs need to be
removed in their active growing stage...this is why it is very important for you to be consistent
in your treatments so I can treat your hairs at the right
time in their growth cycle for the best results. What you will feel
will be a heat or a tingling sensation and some areas (inner thighs
and upper lip) are more sensitive and tender than others. I provide
topical anesthetic on top of the skin to make you feel more comfortable.
Refraining from caffeine and sugar prior to your treatment will also
make you more comfortable.
What causes excessive hair growth?
If you have a bothersome, even embarrassing hair problem, you are
not alone. It affects as many as 90% of all men and women today. Heredity is the key culprit,
certain cultures just have more hair than others. Certain drugs, like birth control pills,
blood pressure pills, steroids and hormonal therapy can change your delicate glandular balance
and cause increased hair growth. Normal hormonal changes during puberty, pregnancy and menopause
may also be a contributing factor. Stress is also a factor. Any situation that sets off the
adrenal glands can trigger a hormonal reaction that can cause fine, soft body hair to grow into
coarse, more noticeable dark hair. THE IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER IS THIS:
NO MATTER WHAT THE CAUSE, UNWANTED HAIR CAN BE PERMANENTLY REMOVED.
Am I in any danger of contracting a
disease or infection?
ABSOLUTELY NOT.... If you go to a professional who has very
strict standards of treatment. First of all, the work area should be very sanitary, clean, and
a place that you feel comfortable. But, most important, all equipment should be sterilized,
sanitized and maintained as required by the State Licensing Board. I use the same technique of
sterilization that hospitals and doctors use, assuring you that all bacteria are destroyed on
all instruments used, thus ensuring your safety.
