What is Electrolysis?

There was a time when electrolysis was a little-known hair removal treatment. For models and actresses, it was an insider’s beauty secret. But those days are long gone. Today, people of all ages and in all walks of life are enjoying permanently smooth, hair-free skin, a benefit that only electrolysis can offer. And the results are more than skin-deep. This refreshing new look works wonders for their confidence and self esteem.

Electrolysis is not just for women. Men make up a fast-growing segment of the clientele. More and more men are opting for electrolysis on the back, face and other body areas to achieve a well-groomed, tailored appearance. Many athletes are also using electrolysis to streamline their bodies for maximum performance. Teens are taking advantage of electrolysis too, for hair removal needs as they enter young adulthood.

Removal of unwanted hair is nothing new. Throughout history, people have gone to drastic lengths to get rid of excess body hair. As early as 4000 BC, women in ancient Egypt made hair removal creams from beeswax, arsenic, and quicklime. Over the years, people devised various other potions for removing hair. But the results were always the same, the hair grew back.

It wasn’t until 1875 that electrolysis was invented. Dr. Charles Michel, a St. Louis ophthalmologist, devised this system to remove his patients painful ingrown eyelashes. Dr. Michel’s method is still used today, though with significant technological improvements. It effectively destroys the hair growth cells, preventing further growth. Electrolysis proved to be a breakthrough discovery.  It now boasts the best and longest track record for permanent hair removal.  In fact, medical experts agree that electrolysis is the ONLY safe, effectivce method for removing hair permanently.

The marketplace is flooded with temporary hair removal methods, such as  shaving, depilatories, waxing and threading. But they have the same disadvantage as ancient methods, in that the hair grows back. Many of these methods can actually increase hair growth.

For permanent hair removal, electrolysis is the only solution. It works almost anywhere on the body, face, legs, underarms, breasts, abdomen, back and bikini line. And it’s effective on light or dark hair, as well as all skin tones.

What can you expect if you decide to take advantage of this life-enhancing beauty treatment?
