During your hair removal consultation our Cosmetic Dermal Therapists will assess your unwanted hair concerns to determine how many treatments you will need to gain up to a 100% permanent reduction of hair with electrolysis.

Frequently Asked Questions
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
