Electrolysis

Permanent removal of hair using Sterex Disposable Needles and Blend method.

The following length of treatment times are available to suite your needs:

What is the Blend method?

The Blend method of electrolysis uses both a high frequency and direct current. Both currents travel down to the base of the follicle via a very fine sterile disposable probe (similar size to a small eyelash). The insertion does not penetrate the skin as the follicle is an opening in the skin which houses the hair. The small probe is introduced alongside the hair and stops at the bottom of the follicle. The current is released for 5 seconds like a short burst of energy. This method is often reported to be the most comfortable and the most effective.

How does electrolysis compare to Laser or IPL hair removal?

Electrolysis remains the only method allowed by the Beauty Industry’s Governing Bodies to claim that it offers ‘permanent’ hair removal. It is also defined in the BMA’s ‘Complete Family Health Encyclopaedia’ as the only means of permanent removal. First invented in 1875 and initially used for in growing eyelashes by ophthalmologist Charles E Michel, it has progressed a long way in over a century with ongoing improvements and modern technology it is a safe, comfortable, effective treatment still very much in demand with clients today.

Nearly all areas of the body and types of hair can be successfully treated. Laser and IPL alongside social convention, pressure and expectations have resulted in more varied treatment areas being presented to the electrologist. Laser/IPL with their capability of treating large areas has resulted in electrolysis now being utilised to complete these treatments where laser/IPL is unable to finish the job. In fact electrolysis, laser and IPL work hand in hand for the benefit of the client. Often white hairs remain after laser or IPL and electrologists can successfully remove these where laser and IPL can not. Any laser or IPL operator who is trained as an electrologist has an advantage as her underpinning knowledge regarding the skin and hair is second to none. She also has the advantage of being able to use each method, for the benefit of the client, either individually or combined

Are there any side effects of treatment?

Electrolysis is performed by a skilled electrologist at Serenity and is perfectly safe. On a first appointment it is important to  complete a full consultation checking all medical history for any reason why a treatment can not be performed.

Following a treatment the electrologist will go through the aftercare advice and apply a soothing aftercare gel. It’s important for the client to follow the advice to prevent any unwanted reaction.

Is electrolysis safe?

Electrolysis was first invented in 1875 and is proven both effective and totally safe. Advancing technology has meant electrolysis has become more gentle and comfortable, even more effective and remains an affordable, modern treatment increasingly popular today. Equally effective as a stand alone treatment, or as part of a programme of support for hair management systems such as IPL or laser, electrolysis will work for you.

Why is it necessary to commit to a course of treatments?

Each hair requires more than one treatment because each individual hair has its own growing cycle and blood supply. Electrolysis works by weakening the hair and eventually destroying it. Courses of treatment are therefore imperative. Results take a little more time, similar to dieting it’s not the crash diet but the healthy eating plan that works in the long run.
