My name is Elise Bright, California State Licensed Electrolgist and I would like to inform you about electrolysis. I believe if you choose to make electroylsis your hair removal method you should be well informed so you may acquire the best results. If you are not educated on electrolysis you may be unaware of the time and commitment that is required to achieve permanent results.
What is electrolysis?
Electrolysis is the destruction of the hair follicle by using galvanic current, high frequency current (short wave or thermolysis) or the two available together known as the blend.
Galavanic current is the destruction of the hair follicle by a chemical action. The galvanic current combined with moisture in the hair follicle produces lye, which a caustic substance that will damage the hair follicle.
High frequency current is a fast acting current that destroys the hair root by a heating action.
The blend is the two current combined, the galvanic current first produces the lye in the hair follicle and then the high frequency current heats up the lye to damage the hair root.
How is electrolysis performed?
A trained electrologist will insert a tiny probe, which is the same diameter as the hair, into the hair follicle. You should not feel the insertion because the electrologist is simply sliding the probe alongside the hair into the follicle. Once the probe is inserted to the root, the electrologist will then deliver energy to the root to damage it and to damage hair germ cells in the follicle.
