Electrolysis permanent hair removal in Shelburne VT

The Procedure

– A thin filament that is about the size of the treated hair is expertly inserted into the hair follicle.
– The skin is not punctured and the insertion is may be slightly felt.
– The current is applied and the hair releases and slides out of the follicle easily with a tweezer.
– Each hair is treated one at a time so that the germinating cells that cause the hair to grow are destroyed.
– It may seem like removing each hair individually would take a long time, but a skilled electrologist moves along quickly and accurately.

The Time Involved

Permanent hair removal is achieved by administrating a series of treatments in a given area. With each treatment the patient will notice that the hair is becoming finer and softer and less that hair is present. Each hair in a given area will cease to grow at different intervals. The amount and strength of the hair, previous hair removal methods, heredity, medications the patient is on, and stress are all factors that will influence how many treatments will be necessary to eliminate every hair permanently. Every hair can be eliminated permanently with electrolysis.
