Electrolysis Hair Removal
The technique of permanent destruction of hair follicles with the help of an electric current is applied for over a century. This method is more expensive and takes longer than the temporary removal of hair. It is relatively painful and requires a long time. A thin needle-electrode is inserted into the hair follicle, which destroys the hair root with electric current.
There are two aspects to consider in electrolysis: the experience of a person performing the procedure and the epilation device. Since the result directly depends on the position of the needle inserted into the root of the hair, it is important that the specialist is experienced.
In electrolysis hair removal the electric current can be used by three methods. Galvanic electrolysis, thermolysis, and blend method. Unfortunately, thermolysis device is often used in our country. This technique, banned in Europe, can cause scars, burns, and skin color changes. Blend technique provides more painless and reliable applications. Procedures, when the skin absorbs chemical materials to slow down hair growth through iontophoresis, is called gel and ampoule hair removal.
These methods cannot provide permanent hair removal.
Electrolysis needles should be disposable to prevent the transmission of diseases such as hepatitis and AIDS. In order to get good results with electrolysis you will need 1 to 3 years without interruption providing that it is performed by an experienced specialist and on an efficient device.
In our clinic, electrical epilation is performed with “Sorisa DE-6000”, a highly effective and reliable hair removal device that includes seven different epilation methods.
Electrolysis (Thermolysis, Electrolysis, Blends A and B, Flash);
Gel (hot probe); and
Ampule (galvanic) methods are used in our clinic.
