|Electrolysis is a method of semi-permanent hair removal which involves inserting a small electrified needle into the hair follicle to destroy growth tissue. Electrolysis can be used on many parts of the body and is one among several epilation techniques suitable for people seeking permanent hair removal. Usually, accomplished in a series of sessions depending on the size of the area requiring hair removal, electrolysis is successful in permanently removing hair about 90% of the time.
Electrolysis works by destroying the cells which promote the growth of hair. There are several techniques, beginning with galvanic electrolysis, which chemically alters the salt and water around the hair follicle to produce a small amount of lye to destroy the cells.
Electrolysis is not entirely pain free, although the pain is usually minimal. In some cases, a topical anesthetic may be used. After an electrolysis session, the skin may be slightly red or irritated. Several sessions may also be required to remove stubborn hair or to cover a large area.
