How does this electrolysis work

Electrolysis is different to Laser Hair Removal in that a probe is directly inserted into the hair follicle, in order to target and disengage the follicle from producing a new hair. Unlike laser technology, electrolysis is able to treat even blonde, white and grey hair. Owing to its powerful circuits and stable currents, the electrolysis is capable of pinpoint precision capabilities and optimal settings, designed to deliver the ultimate result. You can finally say goodbye to unwanted hair, whether it be facial hair or body hair. This technology is efficient, very comfortable and safe for everyone!

The treatment is performed so rapidly that the sensation is barely perceptible. Just a few thousandths of a second suffice to eliminate the hair!

Frequently asked Questions

What does it feel like? Does it hurt?

The Laser Beautique uses the Apilus system which clients find much more comfortable than other electrolysis technology or epilators on the market. Each follicle is treated using a faster and more sophisticated treatment technique and  flash thermolysis technology, which can be felt through a short, sharp yet virtually pain-free sensation. Some areas will be more sensitive than others. The treatment of each follicle is much faster with thermolysis than galvanic electrolysis and this is what makes it virtually painless. The treatment is so fast that the body doesn’t have time to register any pain. Many clients even fall asleep during long treatments.

How is electrolysis different from laser or IPL?

The Laser Beautique offers Laser Hair removal as opposed to an IPL. Intense pulsed light, (IPL), requires substantially more sessions and is not pain free, or safe to use on all skin types.

The Laser Beautique makes use of a the world’s gold standard diode laser which offers an efficient, pain free treatment, suitable for all skin types, and is ideal for covering large areas.However, blonde and grey hair cannot be successfully treated with Laser- because pigment acts as a target for the Laser’s energy, without pigment, the Laser will not yield the best result.

For these stubborn and light hairs – Electrolysis is the ideal option. The procedure uses a probe to deliver energy directly to each individual follicle and hair, thereby not relying on pigment within the hair. This allows for electrolysis to successfully treat all types of hair, including blonde or grey hairs.

At the Laser Beautique, a combination of both Laser and electrolysis applications are recommended, to deliver the best, permanent hair removal result.

Start your permanent hair removal program with Laser Hair Removal, and enjoy the benefits of electrolysis to remove the odd grey or stubborn hair, to achieve the ultimate result. Or, if you are someone with only light hair, embark on a cutting edge Apilus electrolysis program at The Laser Beautique to finally be hair free, with the world’s latest Electrolysis option.

Which areas can be treated?

All areas of the body can be treated using electrolysis. The hair must be visible to be able to treat and remove it. Medical clearance from your GP is required to treat hairs that grow from moles. One can treat facial areas such are monobrow, upper lip, chin, sideburns, ears and nose. One can even have their eyebrows permanently shaped.

Other popular areas are fingers, toes, underarms and bikini/mankini. We recommend that if ones hair is dark, they should laser, especially larger areas such as legs, arms, backs and chest. Then after a course of laser treatments, if there are any stray hairs or non-pigmented hairs left, one can have a few electrolysis sessions to nip those in the bud.

Clients who suffer from unwanted non-pigmented hair or blonde, ginger, grey or white hair would need to have electrolysis treatments from the start as laser. Laser treatments are only effective if the hair is dark.

How many treatments will I need?

This depends on many factors; for example whether the hair is hormonal, if it has previously been waxed or plucked, and the area of the body that requires treatment. Hair grows at different rates all over the body. Hair on the head will grow for a period of up to 3 years before falling out yet hair on our legs may only last 12 weeks. This means it may take 12 weeks for all the hairs on the legs to show before they can be treated – we can only treat the hairs we can see. Some hairs may require several treatments.
As a general rule, under normal circumstances, you can expect to be hair free in treated areas after 12-18 months assuming that the suggested treatment program has been followed.

What if I am pregnant?

It is not recommended for pregnant women to receive electrolysis treatments during the first 3 months of pregnancy. This is to keep stress to a minimum during this higher-risk period.
Thermolysis is completely safe for pregnant women as the treatment is delivered through heat not electrical current.
