Have you been told that your hair type or skin tone is the reason you are not a candidate for hair removal treatment?
Electrolysis is not only safe and effective for all types of hair and skin tones, it's also the only treatment that removes hair permanently.
Electrolysis is safe and effective permanent hair removal for all hair types and skin tones
There is good news for individuals with red, blonde, grey or even white hair, who have been told that other methods of hair removal will not work on them. Electrolysis is their only option when it comes to permanent hair removal.
But those with lighter hair colors are not the only ones that can undergo electrolysis; in fact, electrolysis can be performed on nearly anyone and is permanent!
Electrolysis for curly, wavy, and coarse hair
If you have dark skin, you have a higher likelihood of having this type of facial or body hair, but it can appear with any skin tone. Straight hair can also become ingrown.
Why is curly or coarse hair a problem?
Curly hair is more prone to become ingrown or cause raised bumps on your skin. Coarse hair gets stuck underneath the skin. Attempting to manage these problems by temporary methods such as depilatories, shaving, or tweezing can just make them worse, causing scarring or discolored areas. These methods are very hard on your skin.
What does electrolysis do about it?
Electrolysis safely and permanently removes ingrown hairs and the curly, coarse hairs that tend to damage your skin without creating issues that occur with tweezing and other temporary methods of hair removal.
Since I have this type of hair, are there any special side effects I need to consider?
No. Electrolysis has proven to be a safe and effective procedure for all skin tones and types of hair. Your electrologist will explain the treatment process and answer any specific questions you have.
