Under normal circumstances, skin damage is unlikely. However, some slight skin reaction can be expected during the course of the treatment. Do not worry if you experience such manifestations. If the skin reaction persists for an unusual length of time – that period differs for each individual client – consult your electrologist for an analysis.
Is electrolysis painful?
Electrolysis does cause some discomfort, which is relative to the client’s tolerance and area of operation. When a client experiences discomfort, adjustments can be made to create a tolerable treatment.
What areas should not have hair removed by an electrologist?
A physician’s approval is necessary before an electrologist can remove hair from a mole or birthmark.
Is electrolysis dangerous in any way?
The amount of electrical current used is infinitesimally small and poses no hazard. Electrolysis is mechanically safe and controlled at every stage of its application.
How many treatments?
An electrologist cannot specify how many treatments will be necessary for permanency since every client is unique. There are several factors, which contribute to the length of the treatments: the type and extent of hair growth, client tolerance, skin type and frequency of treatments. The electrologist should be able to answer this question more clearly after a review of your case history.
Does the frequency of treatments have bearing on success?
The more frequent the treatment, the better the results! Regrowth is most vulnerable when it first reappears. If the hair is not immediately treated, the hair will rebuild its strength and negate the effectiveness of the initial treatment. Therefore, it is very important for a client to participate in a planned program of electrolysis.
