Myths About Electrolysis

"Myths About Electrolysis Hair Removal

Myth: Electrolysis can only treat small areas.
Electrolysis is suitable for both large and small areas. No hair growth is too extensive or too strong for electrolysis to be successful – anything from a few fine hairs in any area to a full beard or full legs can be treated successfully.

Myth: Electrolysis is very painful.
Pain tolerance is subjective. Our state-of-the-art machine means that no one needs to suffer during treatment. Some clients feel a mild stinging sensation ( similar to the tingling sensation you may get from a mosquito bite). This can be combatted with topical local anesthetic).

Myth: Electrolysis is very expensive compared to other hair removal methods.
Electrolysis entails a series of treatments due to the hair growth cycle but is very affordable. Money is saved because a person does not require a lifetime of maintenance as with temporary methods. Cost varies from person to person depending on the thickness of the hair and the size of the area being treated. An appointment with an electrologist will help determine how many sessions are needed and the cost involved.

Myth: It does not work and is not permanent.
Electrolysis treatment has been around for over 125 years (which explains why it has had the time to be perfected). Electrolysis is 100 percent FDA-approved and is the ONLY permanent hair removal.

Myth: Home electrolysis gadgets are just as effective
NO chance of success BUT re-growth, scarring, and infection, with no chance of permanently removing unwanted hair.

Myth: Electrolysis leaves scars
There is NO scarring risk or permanent marking if an experienced and qualified practitioner performs the treatment correctly. "
