Alternatives To Electrolysis In Melbourne

A common misconception exists that certain beauty treatments involve a great degree of pain. Sometimes the name of a treatment alone is enough to put a person off. However, we live in a time of technological innovation, and this affords any person that wants to enhance the way their skin and body looks many different ways to achieve it that are simple, effective and affordable.

Alternatives To Electrolysis Hair Removal in Melbourne

Electrolysis hair removal is delivered at some clinics in Melbourne, however is quickly becoming superseded by newer technology. We are different from the brand salons and franchises in the sense that we are an independent clinic that seeks to achieve better, more personalised treatments for its clientele. Those who put a premium on having a healthy, attractive, flawless appearance know that when they book an appointment with our highly trained and experienced therapists, they will achieve their skin goals.

We like to keep abreast of all innovations in our industry and regularly undergo learning and training to determine whether there are better ways to help you get the beautiful skin that you want. Whether you need a skin issue eliminated or hair removed or appropriate protection to help prevent damage, rest assured that we are the best-placed professionals to help you out. 

Why So Many People Are Moving Away From Electrolysis for Hair Removal

A combination of many time consuming treatments and painful skin reactions means we are finding the demand for electrolysis shifting to newer technology. And when combined, the net effect, over several sessions, is that the hair is destroyed and little to no hair will regrow in that spot. The sensation is much less painful than electrolysis and you won’t have to worry about cutting yourself with shavers or irritating the skin or deal with ingrown hairs and regrowth. It’s the new, simple, effective way to achieve quick hair reduction.

Anyone that looks for electrolysis in Melbourne will most likely have tried out other forms of hair removal without success. Waxing, threading, shaving and plucking are short-term solutions that requires continued efforts to keep hairs away. Laser hair removal is another semi-permanent option that in certain hair types can worsen the hair growth. But when these modalities with Alkaline are combined, the results are far more pleasing than electrolysis.

Electrolysis is a more expensive option and it is worth considering the cost in the long term compared to the alternatives.

Why Electrolysis had to retire.

For more than 10 years we had been performing Electrolysis on many hundreds of clients, but the writing was on the wall. Electrolysis was being superseded by new technology, treatments that were quicker and less painful, yet we still found clients needed Electrolysis on their stubborn white hairs. The only problem was that clients were needing years worth of weekly, yes weekly appointments to clear stubborn areas of hair growth, like the chin and upper lip. We started searching for options that would allow our clients to be hair free without the ongoing hassle. After 2 years of research, we started to trial combinations of our many varied hair removal devices on our Electrolysis clients and quickly found that with a combined approach, at least 50% to 80% of the stubborn hairs were being reduced with our other modalities, which were quicker, cheaper and less painful. Slowly but surely our Electrolysis clients converted to a combination of Alkaline, Q-Switched Laser and IPL, this unique combination not only immediately slows and temporarily removes all the hairs from the area, but after only 10-15 treatments reduces 50% of the hairs.



One consult, a million possibilities - your hair removal journey starts here. Your therapist will customise a hair removal program to ensure rapid, safe and permanent results are achieved. Most programs include our unique mixed-modality approach to ensure we effectively target every hair, from fine to thick and white, red, blonde, black and every colour in between. We may perform a test patch and provide you with your skin preparation product routine to ensure your skin's readiness and guarantee your best results.
