You are not alone. Due to genetics, hormonal imbalances, or topical influences, 90% of all men and women suffer from hirsutism or superfluous hair.
What Can Be Done About It?
Electrolysis is the only method of hair removal approved by the F.D.A. & A.M.A. that can legally be called “Permanent Hair Removal.” No other methods are permanent.
You control your diet, exercise, hairstyle and clothing for the image you wisth to convey. Unwanted hair can detract from the image you work to achieve, making you feel less confident. Let electrolysis work wonders for your self-confidence.
Electrolysis was discovered in 1875 by Dr. Charles Michel. With a history of more than 120 years, it has been proven a safe and permanent method of hair removal. Millions of men and women have taken advantage of and benefited from Dr. Michel’s discovery techniques.
Hair growth results primarily from three distinct influences on the body:
1. Genetics. We inherit tendencies for hair growth patterns from our ancestors.
2. Systemic. Hormone levels change dramatically during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause. Tumors, glandular disorders, medications, and stress can stimulate abnormal hair growth.
3. Topical. Stimulation from casts, clothing or shoes may stimulate hair growth in that area.
Tweezing and waxing fall into the topical category of hair growth. When a hair is pulled out, the root is not killed. Blood rushes to the area (skin turns red) to heal and repair the damage and thus “fertilizes” a stronger, thicker, darker hair to grow. Waxing pulls out even the fine vellus hair, and makes the problem worse as hair grows back.
Shaving, clipping, or depilatories remove hair at skin level. They do not make more hair grow.
These are all only temporary methods, and must be repeated continuously. You will be saving time and money spent in a lifetime with electrolysis-permanent hair removal.
Electrolysis is achieved by the insertion of a fine probe into the hair follicle which is a natural opening. There is no piercing of the skin. Proper insertions are not felt. A tiny amount of electrical current is then applied to destroy the hair growing cells. An electrologist is trained to use machine settings, modalities, and client’s tolerance levels to provide safe, permanent hair removal. Sensitive electronic machines called epilators deliver the current to the probe causing heat, chemical decomposition or both to destroy the hair root.
Electrolysis, like many minor procedures in medicine, does have a short healing period. There may be some transient redness or swelling and, occasionally, some pinpoint scabbing. Your electrologist will advise you regarding what can be expected during healing.
