More Information About Electrolysis

Can women begin or have electrolysis treatments during pregnancy?

Unwanted hair can be caused by hormonal changes brought on by pregnancy. Electrolysis can be performed on any normal skin. This includes pregnant women. We suggest that you seek the advice of your physician before beginning treatment.

 

Can hairs be removed from moles?

Electrolysis can be performed on most moles where licensing regulations allow it. Your electrologist may require written approval from your physician.

 

Does shaving make more hair grow?

No, it does not – it is a myth that has been around for a very long time. Your hair cycles stay the same and actually, when we begin electrolysis with a shaved area, your hairs die faster than if you had previously done anything else such as waxing, threading, laser, or tweezing.

Areas of your face and body that have been shaved results in less time required for the electrolysis treatment. If you shave before and during the electrolysis process, the hairs will die faster.

If you have certain hair types on your face such as vellus, light or dark coarse hairs, we recommended that.

What types of skin are prone to ingrown hair?
Electrolysis treatment remains one of the most effective ways to eliminate irritating ingrown hair. To achieve optimal results, you should:

• Tend your skin right before electrolysis session
• Loofah the area twice during the week before the electrolysis session
• Use a facial or body scrub 2-3 times during the week before the electrolysis session.

 

Does electrolysis really work on ingrown hair?

Ingrown hair sometimes goes away without treatment, however, ingrown hair has the potential to be a serious health hazard. If not properly treated or removed, ingrown hair can become infected and may require medical care. Without proper attention, ingrown hair can lead to scarring or “razor bumps.”

Recurring incidents of ingrown hair is often called folliculitis. This condition occurs when new hair fails repeatedly to grow straight out of your follicles and instead grows curly or crooked just under the skin before it emerges. Though ingrown hair could affect anyone, people with coarse or curly hair are more apt to suffer from ingrown hair or folliculitis.

Though it has since been used to treat all unwanted hair, electrolysis was originally developed to remove ingrown hair and is a very effective solution. In fact, electrolysis is is the only hair removal technique approved by both the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the American Medical Association (AMA).

Electrolysis for ingrown hair is completely safe and effective for all hair and skin types. During the treatments, electrolysis restricts the follicle from growing another unwanted hair. Electrolysis should not be confused with laser hair removal, which is not a permanent removal treatment for ingrown hair.

Alison wants you to experience the freedom that comes from permanently removing ingrown hair to help you maintain good health and help you feel more confident about your appearance.
