What is electrolysis and how does it work?

Electrolysis is the process of permanently removing hair by treating it with either a high frequency electrical pulse, a low voltage electrical current, or both. It is the only FDA approved method of permanent hair removal.

Your state licensed Electrologist inserts a sterile thin metal probe, similar in size to the hair being treated, into the follicle of the hair to be eliminated. They then transmit a high frequency pulse via the probe into the base of the follicle. This pulse destroys the root tissue surrounding the root of the hair, and the hair is then effortlessly removed.
