Electrology is the science of hair removal. FDA and the American Medical Association recognizes only electrolysis as a permanent method of hair removal. Alternative methods such as laser are considered temporary hair reduction. Electrolysis is effective on all hair types and colors and skin color-for men and women.
Excessive hair growth could be caused by a number of issues such as heredity, stress and medication. Also, hormonal changes during puberty, pregnancy and menopause could attribute as well.
Electrolysis is considered a permanent hair removal method, since it destroys the hair follicle. A series of appointments are required to achieve permanent results. The number of treatments necessary varies with each client depending on the area to be treated. There are factors such as hair growth cycles, the amount and structure of hair presented, previous use of temporary hair removal methods, heredity, hormone functions, stress and certain medications influence the treatment program for each individual. To achieve optimum results, it is important to follow the recommended treatment plan.
During electrolysis, a fine needle is inserted in the natural opening of the hair follicle alongside the hair shaft while a minute electricity is gently applied to destroy the hair growth. This causes the regenerative ability of the follicle to be permanently eliminated.
Electrolysis modality was the first method used to remove hair permanently back in 1875 as a medical procedure to treat patients with ingrown eyelashes in doctors offices. Nowadays it is performed as a cosmetic procedure in getting rid of unwanted hairs at licensed electrologist offices.
Remember, electrolysis doesn't just remove hair-it destroys the hair follicle that produces the hair.
