The number of sessions of electrolysis depends on several factors including the condition of the hair, hormonal dysfunction or medical conditions. From our experience, to see the results it may take more than 10 sessions, and treatments may need to go on for several months.
Electrolysis is suitable for the face and body and is also effective on grey and light coloured hair.
Electrolysis is effective during the growth phase of the hair, therefore it is recommended to avoid any waxing or tweezing in the area treated. Cutting or shaving the hair is recommended instead.
While undergoing electrolysis treatment, all waxing, tweezing and threading must be avoided in the area. The hair should be trimmed or shaved in between sessions. Before your electrolysis treatment, it is important for the hair to have at least 3 to 4 days growth, for the hair to be effectively removed.
To reduce the pain during electrolysis, EMLA numbing cream can be applied to the area before the treatment. EMLA numbing cream is available at pharmacies. Read the instruction provided with the cream carefully before use.
After care for Electrolysis
Apply soothing cream or Aloe Vera gel to calm the skin if you are experiencing any redness.
