To begin, a specific body region is selected for electrolysis. During each further treatment, the previously treated area will be redone, as hair can only be permamently removed/destroyed during the so-called growth phase. This is why treatment of an area must be repeated to achieve permament hair free results..
How many sessions are necessary, as well as the duration, is varies greatly, but you should come in the first few months at regular intervals (approximately every 1 to 2 weeks) for
epilation. With less and less hair, the sessions become shorter and rarer. It can take up to 2 years to complete the hair-free area, for example when treating male beard growth.
Limits of electrolysis
It is not advisable to epilate under the following conditions:
During the treatment:
Every person has an individual perception of pain, which depends on many factors such as how you feel on the day, tolerance levels or the region chosen. Some feel almost nothing. If you have a low pain tolerance , local anesthetic is an option.
It can cause slight swelling or redness, but this will quickly fade away.
The techniques of electrolysis and IPL are as different as the results.
During electrolysis the needle is inserted to the root of the hair via the hair canal, only once in position does the current pulse occur. The hair root is destroyed and no hair
can form again.
The electrolysis removes the hair from the root.
In the IPL process, light is used at the superficial level. IPL targets the melanin, the the hair’s colour. For this reason IPL, but also lasers, generally do not work with gray, red or extremely light hair that contains little or no melanin. The different wavelengths penetrate at different depths into the skin. Damage to nearby hair roots can be achieved. Since the hair root itself is not completely destroyed, the hair inevitably will grow back again; sometimes at some delay due to damage from the light pulse.
In the best case, a hair reduction over several years with laser and the like . is possible.
In the worst case, there is no improvement at all.
Only if all of the hair follicle’s growth cells are totally destroyed will the hair not regrow. It is scientifically proven that so far this is only possible via electrolysis.
Each treatment starts with a consultation and a free trial at your appointment.
That’s why there are no prices listed here, as they may lead to false expectations...
Results are more important than the hourly rate.
How many hours of treatment are necessary to achieve the result desired?
How many hours are required depends on:
Hair texture, body region, any previous treatment, health condition, sensitivity to pain and my own skill in terms of quality and time per hair.
If you want to know what it costs to get a skin region hair-free, then please arrange a free trial appointment for an assessment.
In some medicial cases, such as hirsutism, hypertrichosis or gender transition, health insurers may offer cost reinbursement as electrolysis is the sole hair removal treatment option covered. Please contact me for further information.
