What is electrolysis?
Electrolysis hair removal is truly permanent hair removal. During electrolysis, we insert a tiny probe into each hair follicle (using magnifying glasses to see really up close), zap it very briefly, and then pull out the destroyed hair. While this may sound tedious, we can remove a surprising amount of hairs in even one session!
Your hair grows in cycles, meaning only about a third of your hair on any area is visible at any point in time. This means that we have to treat each area we work on many times to totally get rid of the hair, but you’ll be that much more hair free every time! You’ll stop seeing visible hair well before we’ve removed every single hair, so you’ll see the results very quickly.
Once you are hair free on a certain area, you are truly hair free!
There are three main ways to perform electrolysis hair removal: thermolysis (heat), galvanic (chemically destroying the hair root), and blend (a mix of thermolysis and galvanic). We use thermolysis, as we don’t want to leave chemicals under the skin. In our experience, thermolysis can remove more hairs in a session and heals very fast too!
We are especially excited to offer trans friendly electrolysis near me. We offer trans friendly electrolysis for both the face and for bottom surgery prep. Clients of all genders are, and always will be, welcome. Nothing makes us happier than helping people to be themselves, and feel comfortable and beautiful in their own skin! Aesthetics can be a wonderful part of your transition, and that is the case no matter where you are at in your gender journey. Many of us are also members of the LGBT community ourselves!
