Electrolysis Hair Removal in San Antonio, TX
Unwanted hair can be difficult to deal with. Waxing, tweezing and other hair removal methods are effective, but can be painful. The downside to those methods is that they are only temporary; the hair will grow back regardless of how many times the method is performed.
Electrolysis is the only permanent hair removal option. If you want to rid yourself of unsightly hair, please call (210) 529-8893 or contact Dr. Vernon Williams online.
How Electrolysis Hair Removal Works
Electrolysis eliminates hair by damaging the hair follicle. This is done using a very fine electrolysis needle. This needle carries a slight electric current, which reaches down to the follicle and destroys the hair from the root. As a result of this, the follicle is permanently damaged and hair growth in that spot stops. This makes electrolysis different than laser hair removal, which only temporarily removes hair.
There are three types of electrolysis:
- Galvanic: This is the original electrolysis method. Here, a direct current is applied to the follicle which causes a chemical reaction. This reaction damages the follicle and stops hair growth.
- Thermolysis: This newer method is also known as high-frequency electrolysis. With this treatment, alternating current is sent to the follicle, which is eliminated via heat.
- Blend: The blend method combines galvanic electrolysis and thermolysis. Direct and alternating currents are used in unison.
Each of these methods is a viable hair removal option. Only a professional electrologist can recommend which method is best for you. To discuss electrolysis with a professional, please call (210) 529-8893 or contact Dr. Vernon Williams online.
Your Electrolysis Hair Removal Appointment
The typical electrolysis appointment lasts around 30 minutes, with each appointment targeting one area of hair. The average electrolysis treatment plan consists 15 – 30 sessions. While electrolysis does cause some pain, it is mild and can be abated with a topical cream or pain reliever.
Electrolysis results are usually noticeable immediately. Electrolysis is the only permanent hair removal method approved by the FDA, and it has the proven results to match that reputation.
