Electrolysis for Hair Removal

Electrolysis is fast becoming the most popular alternative to Laser Hair Removal. Electrolysis is a permanent solution for that unwanted hair, and is a suitable treatment for both men and women. This is the ideal alternative to clients that aren’t suitable for laser.


5 reasons to consider Electrolysis:

  • The treatment is accurate and effective – Electrolysis treats the hair directly to prevent more hairs from growing
  • It’s permanent - Electrolysis permanently eliminates the hair so no more waxing or plucking!
  • Great for smaller areas – anything from chin, eyebrows, naval etc.  
  • Brilliant for those with finer hair – whilst electrolysis is suitable for all hair types, it tends to work best on fine, untreated hair
  • Laser hair removal isn’t suitable – Electrolysis is a great solution to those who aren’t suitable for laser treatment

electrolysis treatment



Electrolysis is a course of treatment for permanent hair removal. It is a method of removing individual hairs from the face and body. It’s most commonly used to remove small areas of unwanted hair that can’t be removed by other methods but this treatment can also be used on larger areas too. Today’s medical devices destroy the hair with chemical or heat energy.


How does Electrolysis work?

Electrolysis works by passing a small amount of energy into each hair follicle using a very fine, flexible probe. This disables the follicle and allows the hair to fall out. As the hair grows back between treatments, it becomes weaker and finer. The aim is to disable the follicle permanently over time to stop regrowth.

How many Electrolysis treatments will I need?

The total number of sessions needed to remove hair permanently will vary from person to person. This will depend on how big the area being treated is and the density of your hair. Most clients return once a week or every other as needed. Each treatment can last from between 15 minutes to one hour depending on each individual. Repeat treatment will always be required to ensure the hair loss is permanent.

Is Electrolysis for Hair Removal painful?

Everyone is different – however you won’t feel the insertion of the probe as it is going through an open hair follicle. Once it is inserted, your practitioner will then begin the current which will give a slight tingling/stinging sensation but nothing unbearable. 

Who is Electrolysis suitable for?

Electrolysis is suitable for both men and women. It can treat all skin types and hair colour, however it does work best on people with fine hair that hasn’t been previously waxed. This will all be assessed during your consultation.

What method of Electrolysis do you use?

We use Thermolysis which is a newer method than Galvanic electrolysis which offers a quicker and alternative solution to hair removal. It is performed in a very similar way to Galvanic electrolysis, however instead of an electric current the probe delivers radio energy at a high frequency. The current is transmitted and due to its high frequency, vibrates the hair follicle and irritates the water molecules surrounding. Therefore heat is produced and this thickens the fluid destroying the target cell tissue.
