Electrology is the practice of electrical epilation to permanently remove human hair. The actual process of removing the hair is referred to as electrolysis the practitioner slides a solid hair-thin metal probe into each hair follicle. Proper insertion does not puncture the skin. Electricity is delivered to the follicle through the probe, which causes localized damage to the areas that generate hairs, either through the formation of caustic lye (galvanic method), overheating (thermolysis method), or both (blend method).

About our treatment

A complimentary consultation is available to discuss that area is treated, any health concerns and your treatment schedule. Prior to your treatment the skin is inspected and cleansed, and a disposable needle size is selected. After the treatment some redness may occur and could last a few days. With the new technology, treatments are much more tolerable and comfortable. Soothing after creams are applied and numbing cream is also available for your convenience. We are inspected by the health board regularly and use the highest grade disinfectants available.
