Electrolysis

Electrolysis makes permanent hair removal a reality for anybody who would like to enjoy hair free skin without hassle. This is a great option for difficult hairs or hairs that lack pigment.

Electrolysis is a permanent hair removal procedure where a small probe is inserted into the hair follicle, and a small amount of electrical current is delivered, which destroys it and stops hair from growing back. Electrolysis is excellent for removing blonde, gray, or red hairs that cannot be treated with laser.

How Does Electrolysis Work?
A disposable, sterile probe is inserted into the hair follicle. A minimal amount of electrical current is delivered through the probe to the hair root. The current destroys the follicle either through the production of heat or a chemical reaction.

Our office provides all three modalities of electrolysis. Galvanic: The hair is destroyed by a chemical reaction. Thermolysis: The hair is destroyed by a heat production. Blend: The hair is destroyed by a combination of heat and a chemical reaction.

Is Electrolysis Permanent?
Yes, electrolysis has been recognized as a permanent hair removal method for over a century. Results are permanent for all hair and skin types or colors.

What Areas Can Be Treated?
Electrolysis can be performed everywhere on the body except the eyelashes and inner ear. Electrolysis works well on small areas and stray hairs. Electrolysis is a great alternative to laser hair removal for white, gray or blonde hairs that lack melanin.

Electrolysis performed by a well-trained Electrologist is safe. At Uptown Medical Aesthetics your safety is very important to us. We use disposable sterile probes and gloves on all clients.

Is Electrolysis Painful?
Most clients describe electrolysis as a warm or tingling sensation. If you find the treatment uncomfortable, we will adjust the machine to accommodate your particular tolerance.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The density and texture of your hair as well as medications taken, medical history, and other factors can influence how many treatments you will need. Most individuals take an average of 1 year to 2 years to achieve complete clearance of an area.

What Does An Electrology Procedure Involve?

  • You fill out a brief medical history, that a Certified Professional Electrologist evaluates.

  • After your consultation we perform a test spot or full treatment.

  • A sterile probe is inserted into the hair follicle, minimal current is delivered to the hair root through the probe. The hair is tweezed out.

  • Most people experience minimal discomfort during the treatment. Adjustments can be made to increase your comfort. You also have the option of purchasing a topical numbing cream to assist with any additional discomfort.

  • All treatments are performed by a Certified Professional Electrologist.

  • We use sterile disposable probes, latex gloves, and follow Universal Precautions.

How to Prepare for an Electrology Procedure

  • The hair needs to be long enough to see and grab with a tweezer. Two days' growth is usually adequate.

  • Avoid deep tanning, which includes sun tanning beds, 2 days prior to electrolysis treatment.

  • Discontinue using hair bleaching cream 1 week prior to electrolysis treatment.

  • It is best to refrain from tweezing, waxing, or depilatories for 1 week prior to electrolysis treatment. Try using an electric trimmer or cuticle scissors to trim down unruly hairs in between treatments.

Post-Treatment Guidelines

General Care:
It is normal following the treatment for the area to be red and swollen. These symptoms usually disappear in 2 to 24 hours.

Avoid any irritation to the skin. Do not pick or scratch the treated area. This will interfere with the natural healing process.

More Specifically:

  • Keep the area clean using soap and water.

  • Apply ice to the treated area to reduce any swelling.

  • Do not touch the treated area. Scabs are not common but if they do appear, tell your Electrologist at the following appointment.

  • Do not remove any scabs. Antibiotic cream can be applied to shorten the healing process.

  • Do not use any abrasive scrubbing products including loofahs on the treated area.

  • Do not use tanning beds and avoid sun tanning on the treated area for at least 48 hours following the treatment.

  • Use only make-up purchased within 90 days, as this will reduce complications
