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 is the only true form of permanent hair removal, more so than laser hair removal. Our electrolysis unit utilises a method known as thermolysis, RF, shortwave or diathermy, which emits high frequency (HF) energy. The electrolysis probe, itself, does not get hot. This HF energy is used to heat surrounding tissue to produce electrocoagulation (heating the target hair bulb to about 48 degrees). Most of the high frequency energy leaves at the tip of the probe, protecting your skin. Once the bulb has been sufficiently heated the hair detaches and comes straight out.
Who is suitable for Electrolysis?
Most clients can have Electrolysis, including pregnant clients, as we use Thermolysis. However, darker skin types are advised to be on a specific skin lightening cream to reduce any possible pigmentation side effects from the treatment. Clients with a pacemaker will need a doctor's certificate to ensure your safety.
How many treatments will I need?
Ideally if every single hair was present at each treatment and each hair was 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 an individual hair to permanently remove it.
Furthermore, for many different reasons, it is not possible to treat every single hair each treatment, therefore it takes around 8 to 12 sessions in total to clear an area and possibly a few extra sessions if the hairs were waxed or plucked at the beginning of your first session.
What does Electrolysis feel like?
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.
Topical anesthetic is available, if needed at an additional cost, however the use of cold packs or cryo cooling is usually sufficient.
How will I look immediately after my treatment?
Unlike laser hair removal, immediately post treatment you will be hair free, as the individual treated hair is removed from the follicle. A slight localised reddening and/or swelling of the skin may occur during or shortly after the treatment, lasting 30 minutes to 48 hours. Rarely some clients can experience slight dryness or even little white heads on the treated follicle for a short time.
Electrolysis works by inserting a single-use, sterilised probe into the hair follicle to destroy the growth centre of the hair root. A slight reddening or swelling of the skin may occur during or after the treatment, but this will only last for a short time.
