Electrolysis is a cosmetic procedure for removing unwanted hair with the help of an electric current. Most women note that it is very effective but at the same time the most painful hair removal treatment (compared to laser or photoepilation). How does electrolysis work - a thin needle is attached to the root of each hair, after which an electric current discharge is applied to the electrode. Electricity reaches the follicle and damages it, as well as the follicles adjacent to the follicle, which are responsible for the growth of the hair (capillaries and tiny nerve endings). Thus, the viability of the hair follicle is completely lost.
