Can electrolysis destroy your skin?
Immediately after your electrolysis hair removal treatment, you may experience slight redness or sensitivity on your skin. This will usually subside within a few hours. Remember that proper hygiene is essential to help your skin heal.
How many sessions are needed for permanent epilation with electrolysis?
The results of electrolysis hair removal differ from person to person and are directly influenced by the body's hormonal activity and other health problems that affect the hair. Obviously, it depends on the area we are treating, because each follicle generally needs to be targeted at least two or three times. Body hair develops in three stages – growth (anagen stage), rest (catagen stage), shedding (telogen stage) and therefore cannot be removed in one electrolysis session but requires several sessions because only hair in the anagen phase can be treated.
How long does it take for hair to stop growing after electrolysis?
In general, a satisfactory result is obtained in 6 months to a year, if we carry out the treatment at the interval indicated by the specialist. Because there are three different growth cycles, some hair remains hidden at any given time, and it can take several months to a year to fully treat an area.
Does electrolysis make hair thinner?
Electrolysis involves inserting a fine, pre-sterilized, single-use probe into the hair follicle. The skin is not punctured or injured. If in an initial treatment, a hair is only damaged, it will grow much thinner. In the future it will be smoother and more amenable to treatment.
Does electrolysis effectively remove all types of hair?
Yes. It doesn't matter if you have dark or light hair in the chosen area, or if you have light or dark skin. Electrolysis will work regardless of hair and skin color.

Avoid plucking, waxing or shaving before your electrolysis appointment. Through interventions of this kind, root restoration is favored and the optimal results in the electrolysis procedure are considerably reduced. In order for the needle to follow the natural course of the hair follicle and remove the hair more easily, there needs to be at least 1/8’’(3mm) of hair above the skin surface.
With each electrolysis session, your hair will become noticeably smaller and finer, and it will take much longer to grow back.
How do we take care after electrolysis permanent hair removal sessions?
Aftercare begins at the clinic after the electrolysis hair removal treatment, when you will ensure that your skin is free of bacteria. But, remember that each treated follicle is now open after treatment, so it is more susceptible to bacteria. So, hygiene and care after this procedure is essential to ensure there are no post-treatment skin complications.
