Your embarrassment about unwanted hair will be a thing of the past. You'll wonder why you ever let excess hair detract from your looks and self-confidence--and why you ever waited so long to have treatments that would remove unwanted hair forever. After your series of treatments is complete, you'll be more attractive because you'll feel more attractive.Electrolysis is the only method that permanently removes unwanted hair.

How does electrolysis remove hairA complete description is lengthy and highly technical, but basically the electrologist directs a tiny, split-second impulse into the hair root, causing destruction of the lower follicle.
From what areas can electrolysis be used to remove hairEvery part of the body except inside the nose and inside the ears.
Is Electrolysis really permanentYes. Foremost medical authorities agree that electrolysis is the only positive and permanent way to remove hair. By all means, ask your doctor about it.
Can a man have electrolysis doneYes. Men have problem hair growth areas also. Most common are nose, ears, neck, chest, and back. Men frequently suffer from ingrown hairs in bearded areas from shaving. Electrolysis will provide relief from this problem.
What causes the growth of extra hairUsually it can be traced to heredity or a glandular disturbance. Some types of illnesses, opoerations, and medication may also be factors. But most hair that women want removed is not abnormal growth.
Can't I just use depilatories to get rid of hairYes, but this is only a temporary method. As with razors and tweezers, hair grows back within a few days. So you're not helping yourself a bit. Depilatories also have an unpleasant odor, take time to use, and are a continous expense. Tweezing can do more damage than good, as it distorts the hair follicle, making the hair courser and usually more difficult to treat.
What if hair seems to return while I am being treatedYour own previous attempts to remove hair will be one reason for this, as hair usually takes one to fourteen weeks to regrow. In other words, some growth will be hair that has not yet appearted when you started treatment. But electrolysis will remove it. Permanently.
What can I do about heavy growth of hair between treatmentsYou can safely cut hairs in or near the area being treated. But leave enough hair for us to treat and remove. Do not tweeze, use dipilatories, bleach or shave.
What about healingHealing after electrolysis is generally rapid. You may have a temporary redness, but it will quickly disappear after treatment.
Is electrolysis expensiveAs compared with many other beauty treatments, the cost is moderate. It's a small price to pay for a lifetime of freedom from unsightly, unwanted hair. Don't you think you owe it to yourself to look into electrolysis now
