What is Electrolysis?

A very fine sterile probe is inserted into each individual hair follicle sending a localised electrical current to the growth centre to destroy the stem cells and blood supply that allow the hair to grow, the effects are almost always permanent and any areas of the body can have hair removed in this way.

Electrolysis is an effective treatment for both Vellus and Terminal Hair.

  • Vellus: Hair is soft, fine, and short. Most women have vellus hair on their chest, back, and face. It can be darker and more noticeable in some women than others, especially those with darker complexions.

  • Terminal: Hair is coarser, darker, and longer than vellus hair


Types of Electrolysis

The first method of electrolysis was galvanism discovered by a U.S ophthalmologist in 1875 who used it to successfully, permanently remove ingrown eyelashes. The other method of electrolysis is thermolysis which was discovered in France in 1924. The two systems used in conjunction are known as the blend method to date these offer treatments still offer permanent hair removal.

The Blend Method:
A combination of both galvanic and high frequency current

Thermolysis Treatment or Short Wave Diathermy
The thermolysis treatment uses a high frequency current which destroys the hair follicle by heat. The needle itself does not produce the heat but when the high frequency current comes in contact with living cells within its high frequency field, the cells themselves vibrate at such a high frequency they produce friction which results in heat and this in turn destroys the cells themselves. This works best for light or grey hair that is very fine and usually on the face. A single probe is inserted by hand in to the follicle; each insertion lasts between 1 and 4 seconds.

Multi Needle Galvanic - for stronger hair types
Electrolysis affects only the individual hair follicle NOT the surrounding skin,
the head is directed at the growing area of the hair follicle.

Which method?

Both methods ultimately achieve the same result. It can be determined on initial consultation which method will work best for your hair and skin type.

What type of hair is best treated with electrolysis?

Unlike Lasers or Intense Pulse Light (IPL) systems that work only on darker hair types, Electrolysis works on all hair colours and hair types.
It can treat grey, white, red, blonde and brown (dark/light) hair very effectively.

How long will it take?

Each case can vary to the individual and must be assessed on consultation. As a general guide from commencement to completion it usually take s 3 months to 2 years, depending on the area being treated and the frequency of treatments.

What about hygiene?

For each client a brand new sterile probe is used and you will see the individually packed sterile probe opened in front of you.

How Many electrolysis treatments will I need?

Treatment time depends on the area being treated and the amount of hair present. Hair on chin for example may take anywhere from 5-15 minutes. Treatment may be required on a fortnightly basis to target hair at its growth phase.

What’s the hair growth recycle?

The cycle of hair can vary in different parts of the body and with every individual. The cycle can be out of its natural state if the hair has been tweezed and waxed. When hair is in the “right” cycle of growth, only then treatment with electrolysis may be the most effective in destroying the growth centre responsible for the hair growth.
If not all cells are destroyed the hair may grow back finer, softer and lighter. With continued treatments, it will eventually result in the follicle being unable to produce another hair.

Electrolysis Pricing


Price Upon Consultation

Electrolysis hair removal refers to the practice of electrically removing hair from the human body.

When hair is removed in this way, the effects are almost always permanent. It involves several steps or treatments to be completed and is done by inserting a needle-like probe into a hair follicle and passing an electrical current through it. Any areas of the body can have hair removed in this way.
