A well-groomed appearance is important to both your social life and your business environment.
Ongoing management of unruly facial hair and unwanted body hair can range from time-consuming to impossible. Fortunately, there is a permanent solution to problem of unwanted hair - Electrolysis.
Back hair and ear hair come to mind, but other areas are part of the "manscaping" process. Some common areas of treatment are: eyebrows, especially if a unibrow is of concern; beard sculpting, to eliminate shaving on the cheeks and neck; neckline hair, to treat skin irritations and ingrown hairs; ear hair; back hair and shoulder hair.
The length of a treatment, and the number of treatments to complete the process, will depend on the amount of hair to be removed. Defining brows or treating ears will take a lot less time than removing the heavy growth on a back. It is important to know that consistent clearings, of any area, will achieve permanence sooner than having sporadic appointments.
Treatment sessions can range from 15 minutes to more than an hour, depending on the area being treated. Based on a thorough and confidential consultation, a professional electrologist will provide you with a tailored treatment plan that will address your specific areas of concern.
Your electrologist will explain all aspects of the treatments, recommend a treatment schedule that will help you accomplish your hair removal goals, and explain how you should take care of the treated skin.
Generally speaking, you should not feel the insertion of the probe into the hair follicle, nor should you feel like the hair is being pulled out when it is removed; the hair will easily slide out of the follicle when properly treated. You skin will likely be red after treatment. The redness should dissipate within the day. Your skin should not be unduly irritated and will heal normally if a few precautions are taken, as should be discussed during your consultation. If you have any questions, your electrologist will happy to answer them to your satisfaction.
Answers to general questions about electrolysis are available on the FAQ page.
