Electrolysis, otherwise known as diathermy is a course of treatments performed by a skilled and experienced practitioner to permanently remove unwanted hair. It has the longest track record of achieving the most effective results for permanent hair removal.
A tiny sterile probe is inserted into the hair follicle, where a heat is applied, destroying the hair follicle preventing future regrowth.
During the course of treatment for permanent hair removal, there will be a gradual decrease in hairs until they are permanently removed, for example 250 hairs reduce to 200, then to 150, 100, 50, 25 etc.
Yes, you must book a consultation and patch test prior to treatment if you have never been treated with us before, even if you have been treated elsewhere. This is completely free of charge and lasts around 45 minutes (if you are booking through treatwell, you will be charge £1 which is deducted from your first treatment) to avoid the charge please call or text to book
We work alongside the NHS in providing permanent hair removal to patients with NHS funding, usually who meet a certain criteria. This is usually provided to patients with PCOS and Body Dysmorphia. Please get in touch for more information and to discuss how we can help you with your NHS journey to hair removal.
Yes, Electrolysis is the only method of permanent hair removal which is FDA approved as 100% successful. Laser hair removal and IPL are known as permanent hair reduction as there is a small percentage of hairs that do not respond.
Not only is electrolysis 100% permanent, its also effective for all hair types, all hair colours, all skin types and all skin colours too.
Throughout the course of electrolysis permanent hair removal treatment, you will see and feel the difference, the hair becomes finer, softer and lighter and your skin texture feels smoother so you do not have to wait until the end to see results. The overall amount of treatments needed varies from person to person and depends on factors such as hair density, coarseness, treatment area, pain threshold and availability. All this will be discussed at your initial consultation and patch test.
Yes, electrolysis permanent hair removal is 100% effective on all hair types and skin types so if you are and unsuccessful candidate for laser due too your hair being white, red or blonde, then electrolysis is the method for you!
Laser hair removal can reduce big areas of hair quicker than electrolysis which is why it is more common, however, laser does not work on red, white or blonde hair so if you have a combination of hair colours like dark & white or dark & red, then we can design a treatment plan to combine both treatments and targeting all the hairs achieving permanent hair removal whichever hair colour you have.
Electrolysis is a commitment to a treatment plan to reach your desired goals Everyone's individual needs are different depending on their hair type, hair density, skin type, heal rate and pain threshold. , some cases may take only 8 sessions and some can take up to a year to completely clear and area of hair, in some cases more. If you have no pigmented hair and white /red hair we could do a treatment plan of mixed laser and electrolysis sessions
Immediately after treatment the skin will be red and possibly a little raised. There may be some small bumps; this is due to fluid tissue gathering in the area to aid healing. It may take up to 24 hours to subside; a cold compress can be applied to speed up healing.
Small crusts may appear at the site of each insertion, these look like small dots on the skin that are rough in texture. DO NOT PICK or RUB or EXFOLIATE the area, allow wounds to heal naturally. They may take from 2 days up to 2 weeks to fall away depending on your healing rate and skin type. Apply witch hazel gel as often as possible to protect the area. Sudacrem can be applied at night.
