What is electrolysis?
Electrolysis is the oldest method of hair removal and was in use long before lasers. It is the perfect method to choose for hair with no pigmentation, red, blond or really fine (peach fuzz). Plus, Electrolysis is a wonderful treatment for small areas of your body like eyebrows, or upper lip.
At Allura we combine Laser hair removal and electrolysis to achieve maximum results. The laser is used in small and large areas first eliminating most of the hair, then if need we will use electrolysis to remove the fine strays of hairs that lack color or texture to be absorbed by the laser.
How does electrolysis works?
A very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle. The target is the derma papilla (the root). A low level of electrical current is applied to destroy the follicle. Then the hair is removed.
What does electrolysis feels like?
