To get rid of unwanted hair I have found that electrolysis hair removal was by far one of my best choices in life!
Since my best friend, who is an electrologist has convinced me to have Electrolysis, I have rid myself of unwanted facial hair that was driving me crazy.
Yes, my face. I was so sick of tweezing my eyebrows and always had a lot of “peach fuzz” on my face with the dreaded “female moustache”. Yes, it was there and I hated being teased about it too. I was so happy when she chose this career.
It’s simple, what I learned from her was that it can take up to three treatments for the hair follicles to stop growing. It is so exciting that it has been many years and I have never had to tweeze my eyebrows. One of her other close friends had hair everywhere and had to remove all of it. If I recall it took over a year, but she went as far as having her underarm hair removed as well. As a joke she gave my friend her razor when she had completed all the removal.
If you are not familiar with electrolysis let me explain. It is a method of hair removal in which the hair follicle is destroyed with chemical or heat energy. A fine probe is inserted into the follicle and then the hair is removed with tweezers. The most common areas to be done are the eyebrows, face, legs, breast, abdomen and thighs.
The areas I felt the most were in the meridian, meaning the center of my face under the nose. Overall, the slight zap is very light and the procedure is not uncomfortable at all. Afterwards, you may experience a slight redness, but ice is applied when you are done.
Everyone is different and each individual may experience different levels of pain and or the need for more treatments depending on heredity and hormone levels. Some people have an increase in hair growth due to medications or during menopause. By the way you’d be surprised how many men get electrolysis.
Treatment times vary as well. Much of it depends on the client’s tolerance. Again, I would say I only felt slight tingling sensations. Anesthetic creams can be used and witch hazel is a good astringent to use afterwards.
Often, many other hair removal methods do not work on darker skin. What’s great about electrolysis is that it is effective on all skin colors and types of hair. If you have ever been told that hair removal is not possible due to the color of your skin, then have a consultation with an Electrologist.
As for lighter skin, temporary hyperpigmentation (dark spots) is the darker skin equivalent of the temporary redness. The FDA and the American Medical Association recognize only electrolysis as a permanent method of removing hair. Do not let crazy gimmicks on TV let you think anything else is permanent hair removal.
If you decide to have electrolysis, be sure you check the validity of your electrologist and their license as well as patient comments. Make sure to note these simple facts according to WebMD, who states, you will need to return for several electrolysis visits. The total number of sessions needed to remove hair permanently from a particular area will vary from person to person. Most clients return once a week or every other week as needed. Each treatment lasts between 15 minutes to one hour.
For myself, it took about six sessions and for my brother, who had about five treatments, was able to rid himself of his ugly back hair. So ladies, treat your man to some Electrolysis Treatments to get rid of the unruly back hair unless you’re one of those ladies who likes her man fury. Eeeek! Chest hair, yes, back hair, no! Thoughts?
