Q - why Should I choose electrolysis over other temporary methods like laser and waxing?

A - Unlike other hair removal methods, electrolysis eliminates unwanted hair *permanently*, if performed professionally whereas laser hair removal is considered a temporary method. Waxing, Threading and Tweezing are alike.

These temporary methods may cause an increase in hair growth activity and ingrown hairs and discoloration of skin may result. Depilatories and Shaving can cause an irritation to the skin while the hair regrows quickly.

Temporary methods must be used continuously in order to maintain the look and feel desired, requiring a lifetime of maintenance. Many can appear inexpensive but cost more due to long term use and are found to be inconvenient.

Q - How many Treatments are required?

A - The number of treatments necessary varies with each client. Treatment sessions can range from 15 minutes to more than two hours depending on the area being treated. Factors such as hair growth cycles, the quantity and structure of hair presented, previous use of temporary hair removal methods, heredity, hormone function, certain medication and stress influence the treatment program for each client.

After your first few visits to our office, our electrologist can tell you the approximate number of treatments you may require.
