Is Electrolysis Safe?
At All Things Beautiful we follow the American Electrology Association (AEA) standards for infection control which ensure electrolysis is performed under the highest standards of cleanliness and safety and supersede Wisconsin State Standards.
Unlike other practices we utilize only sealed pre-sterilized probes for all treatments, we NEVER re-process and reuse probes! We always utilize fresh, latex-free medical grade disposable gloves for each treatment.
Is all Electrolysis the same?
There are three types, or modalities, of electrolysis used today - galvanic (current produces a chemical reaction), thermolysis (short-wave which produces heat) and blend (a modality that blends the two). They all result in effective permanent hair removal!
Does electrolysis have any side effects on the skin?
Immediately following treatment, there may be a slight redness and/or swelling which usually disappears within a few a minutes to a few hours.
Though not desirable on face work, small white dots or tiny red dots may appear. On body work a pinpoint film or crust may develop. Ideally by the next day no one should be able to tell you have had treatment.
It is important to remember that scabs are a part of the normal healing process in some people. If this does occur, the client is advised to not pick them off.
Be sure and tell your Electrologist about any skin reactions so they can work with you to minimize their occurrence.
What Does Electrolysis Feel Like?
Every client reacts differently to treatment. Some clients feel nothing more than a warm sensation while others may feel the procedure is somewhat uncomfortable. Very rarely is electrolysis intolerable.
Your electrologist will adjust the amount of current as much as possible to accommodate each individual. A topical anesthesia can be applied if desired.
Topical anesthesia is available over the counter (check with your physician).
How Many Treatments are Necessary?
Electrolysis requires a series of treatments given over a period of time. The length of time varies from person to person and is dependent on many factors.
The density and coarseness of the hair, as well as the total area to be treated, are very important.
How well you tolerate treatments and the consistency of the treatments affect the overall success.
Many hairs will be permanently removed after the first treatment while some will require additional treatment to achieve permanency.Treatments will be more frequent in the beginning and less frequent later on. Most clients return once a week or every other week as needed. But the unwanted hair will be gone forever once the series of treatments is complete. Each treatment lasts between 15 minutes and one hour. The overall results are permanent. Hair-free skin is well worth the time spent.
Can Hair Be Removed from Anywhere on the Body?
Hair can be removed from almost any part of the body.
Some common areas include the hairline, eyebrows, top of the nose, cheeks, side-burn area, upper and lower lip, chin, throat, neck, shoulders, back, chest, breasts, abdomen, arms, legs, bikini line, hands, feet, toes, fingers, and ears.
Hair on the eyelashes, inside the nose and the ear canal are only treated under the supervision of a physician.
Are there any Circumstances when Electrolysis is Not Safe?
I cannot work on clients that have pacemakers or defibrillators.
I cannot work on the lower body of diabetics due to poor circulation.
Can Pregnant Women have Electrolysis?
It is perfectly safe to treat pregnant women, but the breasts and abdomen are avoided after the sixth month of pregnancy. We suggest that you seek the advice of your physician before beginning treatment.
What is the science behind electrolysis?
A small electric current is transmitted by a fine, sterile probe(needle) directly into the natural opening of the hair follicle, destroying the dermal papilla, the matrix and an area called "the bulge", all of which cause hair to grow and regenerate.
