Since the 1980s, electrolysis has been recognized as one of the most convenient and reliable hair removal treatment options.
This video provides an overview on electrolysis. Unlike laser hair removal treatments that only reduce hair growth, electrolysis is the only hair removal treatment option approved by the Food and Drug Administration for permanent removal of hair. During treatment, a thin probe is inserted into each individual hair to permanently damage the hair follicle and prevent it from growing back. Find out what to expect and how to prepare for the procedure by watching this full clip.

Electrolysis is the only permanent hair removal treatment recognized by the American Medical Association and the Food and Drug Administration. Your skincare specialist can help determine whether electrolysis is right for you, but this hair removal treatment option has been shown to provide permanent results for nearly all skin types and hair colors. Continue reading for tips on preparing for your electrolysis hair removal treatment.
Track Your Hair Cycle
All hairs have different growth cycles and are not all visible on the surface of your skin at the same time. Your hair normally grows for a predetermined cycle, or active period, before it naturally sheds and replaces itself. Most hair follicles will then go into a dormant stage for an indeterminable amount of time. Electrolysis hair removal treatments are generally performed during the active stage in order to destroy the hair follicle and prevent it from replacing itself after it has been shed. Your skincare specialist or electrolysis technician can help you identify which hair growth cycle you are currently experiencing to determine when treatment should begin.
Avoid Temporary Hair Removal Methods
All individuals preparing for electrolysis should avoid temporary hair removal methods for at least one to two weeks prior to the procedure. This includes shaving, waxing, plucking, or using depilatory creams.
Electrolysis only presents very minor discomfort, if any at all, so it will be easy for you to relax before and during your treatment. Electrolysis only results in a mild sensation similar to that of traditional tweezing. Being at ease will decrease your healing time and reduce the likelihood of developing small bumps along your skin.
The best way to ensure you are fully prepared for your electrolysis hair removal procedure is to consult your skincare specialist. Call our staff members with Ayromist Electrolysis at (646) 495-9481 to set up an appointment and to learn more about your hair removal options. We also offer body wraps and eyelash extensions.
Recent advancements in cosmetic technologies have led more and more individuals to invest in electrolysis hair removal. Find how you can put an end to shaving, plucking, and waxing with this overview of electrolysis.
What is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is the only safe, FDA-approved hair removal technique currently available on the market. This treatment works by destroying the growth center of each individual hair follicle by using heat or chemical energy. Electrolysis can be performed on a number of areas of the body, including the face, legs, underarms, arms, bikini line, and breasts—this method can even be used to treat ingrown hairs. Unlike bleaches, depilatories, and other hair removal treatment methods, electrolysis is not associated with any permanent side effects.
Who is an Ideal Candidate?
While laser hair removal treatments tend to only work on individuals with light skin and dark hair, electrolysis can be performed on men and women regardless of their skin tone or hair color.
How Does Treatment Work?
After applying a topical anesthetic, your hair removal or skincare specialist will insert a very fine probe into the hair follicle, destroying the growth center before the hair is removed with electric tweezers. The treatment time will vary based on the amount of hair and size of the area being treated; however, most treatments last between 15 and 60 minutes. Your hair growth cycles, hormones, and the quantity of hair may all influence the number of treatment sessions needed.
What Results Can You Expect?
Electrolysis offers permanent results with little-to-no downtime or harsh side effects. Any discomfort is minimal and can be alleviated through the use of over-the-counter pain medications.
