There is a lot of confusion about hair and hair removal products. Everyone seems to claim that they have the ultimate permanent solution to hair removal. There are numerous products on the market with sensational claims about their products. For all who want to know the truth: ELECTROLYSIS IS THE ONLY METHOD FOR PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL.
All the other methods do remove hair, but the hair removal is not permanent
Electrolysis involves the insertion of a fine needle into the hair follicle and generating a small amount of electrical energy into the hair follicle. The electrical current generates heat which leads to the destruction of the hair follicle permanently.
The amount of energy is minute and does not damage the surrounding skin. No matter what is claimed on the internet, electrolysis is not fun and a little painful. Some areas of the body are more sensitive than other. The insertion of the needle is not painful but the sensation generated by the small electrical current is uncomfortable.
Over the next few days, the hair loosens up and may either fall out or may be removed with a tweezer. Each hair must be treated individually and is a time consuming process.
Electrolysis can remove hair from all parts of the body including:
- upper lip
- upper arms
- arm pits
- bikini line
- chest & back
- arms and legs
Electrolysis is a permanent method to remove hair but repeated treatments are required. In addition, the number of individuals offering this type of treatment is small. Further it is essential to get someone who is skilled at this procedure.
Results are not immediately obvious and depend on the body part, density and texture of hair.
Electrolysis is not cheap. The average price may vary from $ 50-100 per hour depending where you live and whom you go to. The procedure does take time and so the cost does accumulate. For removal of hair from the chin it may take 30 minutes but the armpit or groin can take hours- so before you strip down for hair removal, get an idea about the cost.
On second thoughts, shaving may not be bad after all.
