About Electrolysis

electrologist new yorkElectrolysis is the practice of permanent hair removal and the only method recognized as such by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It was invented by Dr. Charles E. Michel, an ophthalmologist, to treat ingrown eyelashes.

It's a Treatment as Individual As You Are...
The electrolysis treatment regimen for each client is tailored specifically to meet his or her needs. Electrolysis is a unique process, in that it works on all skin and hair types. Each hair is treated individually allowing the Electrologist to target only the specific hairs that require removal. This means that Electrolysis is unique in yet another way; it is the only method that can selectively reduce the number of unwanted hairs in an area rather than removing all of the hairs, leading to a more natural look.

Each unwanted hair is treated by inserting a tiny probe painlessly into the follicle. A small amount of treatment energy is applied in order to permanently destroy the tissue that nourishes each hair. Once this has been achieved, a new hair cannot grow out of the treated follicle again.

Unwanted facial or body hair can be the result of a hormonal imbalance, drug/medical intervention, or an inherited trait. Regardless of the cause of the excess unwanted hair, temporary methods of hair removal such as tweezing, waxing, threading, shaving and laser can be incredibly time consuming, costly and anxiety-provoking. Some of the additional benefits of electrolysis are the increased self-confidence, a younger, softer appearance, erasing the worry of visible hair, and many people see significant improvement with problems such as oily skin or ingrown hairs.
