In the process of electrolysis, the roots of the hair are exposed to a current, after which the hair weakens, and when the procedure is repeated, they cease to grow. It must be remembered that hair removal with electrolysis should be performed only by a qualified beautician. To make the procedure painless, an anesthetic is rubbed into the hair removal zone, and then the hair root is pierced with a needle. How deeply the needle is pierced depends on the thickness of the hair. After this, the roots of the hair are burned with electric current.
Hair removal with electrolysis is usually permanent but can cause some pain, and the effect is not immediately achieved. The result depends on many factors: the size of the area to be treated, the curvature of the hair follicles, the level of skin sensitivity and hormonal balance. The pain threshold is individual. Some feel only minor pain, while others may feel excessive pain, which is not tolerated. Hair removal by electrolysis is not a one-shot treatment. The patient may need to repeat this procedure several times a year. If we talk about home devices for electrolysis, it is always necessary to resort to the help of a qualified practitioner to avoid possible serious consequences. The time required will depend on how thick or thin the hair you want to remove.
