Electrolysis - Hair Removal - Blend or Diathermy
Electrolysis involves the insertion of a very thin needle (about the same diameter as a hair) into the hair follicle. As the hair follicle is a natural opening in the skin the insertion of the needle is not usually felt. The root of each hair is cauterized by passing a current through the needle.
This proven method of hair removal can be safely used for both the face and the body.
The Blend process is a combination of the Diathermy and the, more modern, Galvanic treatment - it tends to be more permanent and more comfortable. We can advise at the consulation which method is more suitable for you.
The Diathermy method produces heat, using a high frequency, short wave diathermy current to cauterise the hair at its follicle. This current is channelled through the very fine needle to the desired area; the heat is discharged for 1-3 seconds.
It is usually necessary to have a course of treatment before the hair removal can be considered permanent; this is because each hair grows at a different rate. There will be a constant and gradual decrease in hair growth until a permanent result has been achieved.
The amount of treatment needed to achieve permanent hair removal will vary from person to person.
I offer a mandatory electrolysis consultation and patch test for £30.00, to discuss and arrange a course of treatment designed especially for you.
