Unwanted hair on the face, back, underarms or anywhere else on the body can be a huge blow to your confidence. Both women and men with unwanted hair often experience embarrassment and low self-esteem. This makes it tough to get outside and live life to the fullest.

But with electrolysis hair removal treatment, you can experience a huge transformation that gives you your confidence back. In fact, electrolysis is the only method permitted to claim permanent hair removal, as recognised by the British Medical Association and the US Food and Drug Administration. It can remove any colour of hair on any skin tone, meaning you can live free of unwanted hair for good!

How does electrolysis hair removal work?

When you choose Laser and Skin Group for your electrolysis hair removal treatment, your trained electrologist starts by inserting a fine disposable needle into an individual hair follicle. A small electrical current is then sent through the needle to cut off the bloody supply that feeds it. This destroys the root of the hair, removing it and completely preventing the follicle from producing more hair in the future.

Electrolysis vs laser hair removal

When choosing a treatment for unwanted hair, it’s often a question of electrolysis vs laser hair removal. But you’ll see the best results if you use both treatments together.

Laser hair removal, which is approved for permanent hair reduction, is able to treat a much larger area. Electrolysis complements by targeting hair with little pigment, such as grey and white hairs. This allows you to remove a greater amount of hair during your treatment while keeping particularly troublesome hairs from ever coming back.

How many treatments will I need?

Each hair requires more than one treatment because each individual hair has its own growing cycle and blood supply. Electrolysis works by weakening the hair and eventually destroying it. Courses of treatment are therefore imperative. Results take a little more time.

A course of treatments is recommended as each hair requires more than one treatment because each individual hair has its own growing cycle and blood supply. Electrolysis works by weakening the hair and eventually destroying it. Courses of treatment are therefore imperative and results take a little time. A fine probe (resembling the size of an eyelash) is inserted into the hair follicle where a tiny burst of energy is targeted at the root of the hair. This prevents nutrients feeding the hair and the hair becomes weaker and finer. After a course of treatments the hair is no longer able to grow and complete hair free results are obtained. It is best to arrange a free consultation to discuss the amount of sessions needed.

What type of hair or skin does it treat?

Electrolysis can remove any colour hair on any skin tone.

Is it for me?

Unwanted hair causes enormous lack of confidence, as anyone who has suffered with it will understand, and often brings with it a sense of isolation, low self worth and poor-self esteem. Unwanted hair can be genetic or inherited or one of the symptoms for disorders such as polycystic ovary system. There are also many medications and drugs that cause or stimulate unwanted hair growth as well as hormonal changes within the body such as during puberty, pregnancy and menopause. It is often in the case that electrolysists are privileged to witness a huge transformation in their clients, from a self conscious individual at the beginning of a course of treatments, to confident and happy individual once treatment is under way and making progress. Many women and indeed many men have benefited from this tried and trusted treatment.
