"Cat is very knowledgeable about the process and I felt very comfortable with her. I would recommend her services." Diane Taylor, June 2017
Sensitivity varies according to the area being treated. Most people find it to be relatively painless! A few people experience some discomfort. There is a sensation of heat. If uncomfortable it can be addressed by topical creams and by taking a pain reliever such as Tylenol before treatment. Avoiding caffeine the day of your treatment may also alleviate some discomfort. Being well hydrated is a must as it assists the process and comfort level.
It is normal for your skin to appear red and it may be slightly swollen. This is alleviated by placing an ice pack covered with a damp towel directly to the treated area for about 15-20 seconds and then removing it for a few seconds. Repeat this process for 10-20 minutes.
If you find that your skin breaks out following treatment it may be necessary to apply an antibiotic cream. Any irritation after treatment is temporary and will usually disappear after a few days.
There are several factors which contribute to excess hair growth, such as heredity, hormones, medications, age, pregnancy and childbirth, and excessive use of temporary hair removal treatments.
Electrolysis has been around for more that 125 years and has been proven to be permanent. Although laser may seem quicker, be aware that it only REDUCES hair growth and does not work for all skin types or hair colors. Electrolysis works for EVERY type of skin and on ALL hair types. Laser can be expensive and requires several treatments to just reduce the hair growth. Over time, electrolysis is not only more effective; it is also less expensive, as it results in PERMAMENT hair removal.
Permanent hair removal using electrolysis has come a long way since its beginnings in 1875. Today's computer technology enables the electrologist to work with more speed and comfort. Epilators are much quicker, utilizing current timings of thousandths of a second over the longer current applications of the past, plus, intensity settings can now be modulated to varying proportions. The instruments and equipment used in a contemporary electrologist's office are just part of the changes that have occurred in the electrolysis industry.
