My name is Elise Bright, California State Licensed Electrologist, and I want to inform you about electrolysis. I believe that if you decide to choose electrolysis as your hair removal method, you should be well informed so that you may acquire the best possible results.
What is electrolysis?
Electrolysis is the destruction of the hair follicle by galvanic current, high frequency current, or the two available together known as the blend.
High Frequency current (Short wave or thermolysis) - It is a fast acting current that destroys the hair root by a heating action.
Galvanic current - Destroys the hair root by a chemical action.
The Blend - Destroys the hair root by the combination of the thermolysis and galvanic current.
How is electrolysis performed?
A trained electrologist will insert a probe the same diameter as the hair into the follicle. You should not feel the insertion at all because the electrologist is simply sliding the probe alongside the hair down the hair follicle. Once the probe is inserted to the root, the electrologist will then deliver energy to the root to damage it and hair germ cells that are in the hair follicle.
Available by appointment only.
