- Electrolysis Hair Removal
Electrolysis Hair Removal
Many people have unwanted hair on their face, legs, arms and other parts of their body that affects how they feel about themselves, inside and out. It doesn't have to be this way.
Electrolysis is a safe, effective, gradual and permanent method of removing unwanted hair.
Electrolysis treats each hair follicle individually with a very fine, disposable, sterile heated needle to permanently destroy the follicle’s ability to reproduce, thereby eradicating hair growth on completion of the course of treatment.
It goes without saying that all clients are dealt with in strictest confidence and with compassion.
Joanne has more than 25 years of experience in hair removal and provides electrolysis services with the utmost care. Whilst Joanne offers many treatments, Electrolysis is her passion and main area of interest. She gets great satisfaction in helping people gain confidence following electrolysis treatment both visually and mentally. She feels that it is the most rewarding aspect of her work.
For those of you wondering about the benefits of electrolysis, Joanne is happy to offer a FREE CONSULTATION AND TASTER SESSION.
The consultation is offered free of charge and without obligation. It is an opportunity for you to be fully informed about all aspects of the treatment and to ask questions. Any concerns will be discussed, along with a realistic treatment plan. It will also be a chance to experience a 'taster' session.
|Introductory consultation and taster session||FREE|
|15 minute treatment||£15|
|30 minute treatment||£30|
|Pre-paid course (10 x 15 minute treatments)||£135|
Which Areas Can Be Treated With Electrolysis?
Virtually any area, apart from the inside of the nose and inner ear (the rim of the ear can be safely treated).
Common areas for woman are facial areas, (top lip, chin, neck, cheeks, eyebrows) breasts, abdomen, underarms, bikini line, legs, fingers and toes.
Common areas for men are the upper arms, around the ears, top of the nose, eyebrows, top of the back, cheeks above the line of the beard, around the edges of the beard and any areas where ingrown hairs are causing problems.
Transgender/transsexual females often require full beard removal, some chest hair removal and hands.
Does Electrolysis Hurt?
Pain is highly subjective however the general sensation is of a mild warming sensation or heat (a slight discomfort). This sensation varies according to the area being treated, previous method of hair removal, and hair & skin type along with client pain threshold.
How Many Treatments Do I Need?
The number of treatments required will vary from person to person as each client will have a different density of hair growth (e.g. there may be between 50 hairs and 500 hairs packed into a small area of skin tissue, whilst some clients will have less hair which is spaced out). This means that each treatment course will vary, and therefore no actual figure can be put on the number of treatments required, but you will quickly feel and see a difference giving you the confidence to continue with your treatment course. You will need to have regular appointments over a period of time (at least a year if not more) for most areas. Not all our hair is growing at the same time, and it can be quite a shock to find that those 3 or 4 hairs on your chin could actually be 30 or more hairs ‘taking turns’ to grow!
What Does The Skin Look Like Following The Treatment?
Generally there is some redness and a little localised swelling immediately following electrolysis. This will disappear in time depending on the skin sensitivity and skin type. Generally the next day your skin will show very little sign of treatment.
Will I Be Scarred?
If strict aftercare instructions are not followed there is a VERY small risk of temporary marking (your electrolysist will go through this with you). Provided the treatment is carried out correctly and aftercare is followed then there is little risk of scarring.
I Want To Have Electrolysis But I Can't Bear The Thought Of Letting The Hair Grow In Between Treatments
You can still remove hair between appointments by cutting or shaving (yes, even on the face). The hair does not have to be any longer than it would be when you remove it yourself.
