Electrical Treatments

 

Electrolysis is the only permanent method of hair removal available. It involves the insertion of a probe or filament into the hair follicle down to the dermal papilla and emits a burst of treatment energy enough to destroy the hair follicle. The hair is then removed with tweezers.
