What Is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is a hair removal technique that uses an electric current to destroy hair follicles. An electrolysis procedures starts with a small needle being inserted into an individual hair follicle. The needle delivers heat energy to terminate the follicle. The individual hair is then removed (plucked out) using tweezers.
Since the follicle is destroyed hair is not able to regrow. However, the process of electrolysis is relatively slow the treatment focuses on individual follicles which may require several treatment sessions to be fully destroyed.
