At Timeless Elements Med Spa and Laser Center, we also offer electrolysis for hair removal if you are not a candidate for laser hair removal. Electrolysis is a different method of hair removal and unlike laser hair removal can be performed on unpigmented hair.
Electrolysis is the only form of permanent hair removal recognized by the American Medical Association. Electrolysis requires a series of treatments given over a period of time. The length of time varies from person to person and is dependent on many factors. The density and coarseness of the hair, as well as, the total area to be treated, are very important. How well you tolerate treatments and the consistency of the treatments affects the overall success. The cause of the unwanted hair and the temporary methods of dealing with the hair in the past are also involved in the treatment time. Many hairs will be permanently removed after the first treatment while some will require additional treatments to achieve permanency. Treatments will be more frequent in the beginning and less frequent later on. The overall results, permanent, hair-free skin, are usually well worth the time spent.
An electrolysis treatment involves inserting a sterile fine wire filament, the same size as the hair, into the hair follicle opening down to the dermal papilla. The dermal papilla is the electrolysis target. It is the part of the follicle that feeds the growing hair. While the wire filament is in place, a low-level of heat is applied that will destroy the hair root and loosen the hair in the follicle. The hair is then removed.
