Permanent Hair Removal

Used around the world for more than 100 years. Electrolysis is a clinically proven and effective form of hair removal. It can be used with all skin types and hair colours and is more effective, over time, eventually removing all hair follicles. It is universally and medically approved, documented and accepted by the FDA as a permanent hair removal method.

How does Electrolysis Hair Removal Work?

Electrolysis involves the insertion of a very fine, disposable probe (the same diameter as the hair) inserted into the hair follicle, which is a natural opening in the skin. Once the probe reaches the depth of the anagen or active hair phase, a current is released to destroy the source of nourishment that feeds the hair. Then the treated hair is gently removed from its follicle with the help of sterilized forceps. The follicle destruction is achieved by heat (with thermolysis) or a chemical reaction (with galvanic) or both together (with the blend).

At Esthetic Centre Medi Spa, using a Zeiss microscope is crucial to our practise. Microscopic electrolysis allows the technician to see all the fine hairs and offers precision that only happens when using a microscope.

Major causes of Unwanted Hair:
