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.
Electrolysis Hair Removal in Melbourne
Electrolysis hair removal is delivered in Melbourne here at The Aesthetic Lounge. 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 Opt for Electrolysis for Hair Removal
While the name ‘electrolysis’ might inspire thoughts of pain, the reality is that when performed correctly, it is a relatively straightforward treatment during which a very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle and a tiny current is introduced for few seconds.
The net effect, over several sessions, is that the hair is destroyed and no hair will regrow in that spot. The sensation is more prickly than painful. You won’t have to worry about cutting yourself with shavers or irritating the skin or deal with ingrown hairs and regrowth. It’s a simple, effective way to achieve 100% permanent hair removal.
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 with electrolysis, the difference is that you won’t have to continue your treatments into the future. Once you have completed the sessions required for your hair, you can depend on the results lasting.
Given that electrolysis is a very precise hair removal treatment, it is not as limited as other hair removal options and can, therefore, be used on all parts of the body and all hair colours including red, grey and white. As such, regardless of where you want to eliminate hair growth, this treatment can target individual hair follicles and bring about the results that you have in mind.
While on paper it might seem that electrolysis is a more expensive option, it is worth considering the cost in the long term compared to the alternatives. Your treatment plan is a one-off that will not need to be repeated, whereas shaving, waxing or laser will require continued investment for as long as you wish to achieve the same effect.

What Is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis can be performed on any body area and on any kind of hair. It is the only true form of permanent hair removal, more so than laser. Our electrolysis unit utilises a method known as thermolysis, which emits a high frequency energy. This energy heats up the surrounding tissue to destroy the hair bulb. Most of the heat is delivered deep into the hair follicle, protecting the upper layers of your skin. Once the bulb has been sufficiently heated the hair detaches and comes away, permanently destroying the hair over a course of treatments.

- Do I Need A Hair Removal Consultation Before My First Treatment?
Yes, absolutely. Everyone’s unwanted hair and skin is unique to only them, because of this we always consult with you before starting treatments to ensure we can give you the safest treatments and quickest results.
- How Much Does Electrolysis Hair Removal Cost?
As our prices displayed on our website and through our online booking system are a guide only, upon consultation you will be provided with an accurate price for each hair removal session.
- How Do I Prepare My Skin To Achieve The Best Results For Permanent Hair Removal?
We understand that other clinics may treat your hair, when your skin is simply not ready, but we aren’t just another skin clinic.
Preparation and consistency are the keys to achieving long lasting, rapid results. For optimum hair reduction we recommended a series of treatments in conjunction with a specific skincare routine.
During your Electrolysis program your therapist may recommend and introduce a combination of Laser, IPL and /or Alkaline hair removal treatments to gain maximum hair reduction quickly. Download your Skin Preparation Guide here.
- What Is Cryo-jet Cooling And How Will It Help My Skin?
An industry first, during our electrolysis treatments we utilise cryo-jet cooling, a cold air machine that blows -30 degree air to cool the surface layers of the skin to reduce skin reactions and down time such as; redness, welts and breakouts. This also allows for a more comfortable treatment.
- What Is High Frequency And How Will It Help My Skin?
High Frequency is a comfortable, quick and effective add-on treatment for anyone that suffers with any form of skin reaction after electrolysis. High frequency will dramatically reduce or even completely stop reactions such as, larger breakouts to white heads, red lumps or delayed healing.
A low alternating electrical current is used and ozone gas is produced for an antibacterial and healing effect. You may feel tingling, warmth or have a mild metallic taste during the treatment.
High Frequency is not suitable for clients with epilepsy, pacemakers, high blood pressure or during pregnancy.
- How Will Electrolysis Feel?
If you have found Electrolysis too painful in the past, then you can rejoice, as our cold air machine lessens the sensation and side effects associated with Electrolysis. You will feel a momentary and localised heating sensation which will last from 4 to 20 seconds, depending on the individual hair. Discomfort is minimal for most people, but individual tolerances vary greatly. Keep in mind that some areas of the face and body are less sensitive than others.
- Do I Need Topical Numbing Cream For Pain Relief?
Most clients find the cro-jet cold air sufficient for pain relief, however depending on your tolerance levels and treatment area (upper lips tend to be more sensitive) you can purchase and apply yourself a topical numbing cream 45 minutes before your treatment.
- How Many Electrolysis Treatments Will I Need?
Ideally if every single hair was present at each treatment and all hairs were in the growing stage of its cycle then only one treatment would be needed. However this is not possible, so it takes around 6 treatments on each individual hair to permanently remove it. Furthermore, for many different reasons, as it is not possible to treat every single hair in each treatment, permanency begins at 8 to 12 treatments to clear any given area.
Extra treatments may be needed for hairs with: strong hormonal tendencies, clients with low pain thresholds, male hair growth, and if the hairs were waxed or plucked before your first treatment.
Generally clients begin to notice permanency after 6 months and treatments wind up around 12 to 18 months later.
- How Often Can I have Electrolysis?
Once your skin has been prepared with your prescribed skincare, Electrolysis can be performed bi-weekly to weekly where needed or extended out to monthly or longer between treatments. Initially clients come in more frequently for the first 3-6 months, then intervals are stretched out as the hairs begin to reduce and do not return.
- Can I have Electrolysis?
Most clients, except pregnant clients, can have Electrolysis as we use Thermolysis. However, darker skin types must be on a specific pigment inhibiting serum to reduce any possible pigmentation side effects from the treatment. Clients with a pacemaker will need a doctor’s certificate to ensure their safety.
- What Will My Skin Look Like Immediately After Electrolysis?
A slight localised reddening and swelling of the skin may occur during or shortly after the treatment, lasting 30 minutes to 48 hours. Rarely some clients can experience dryness or whitehead pimples on the treated follicle, if this occurs, High Frequency is highly recommended.
