Electrolysis vs. Laser

No other hair-removal solution can claim the universal acceptability and success offered by electrolysis treatments. Electrolysis hair removal safely and permanently removes all types of hair from all skin tones.

Electrolysis hair removal works by permanently destroying the growth cells of the hair follicle, preventing treated hairs from ever growing back. Treatment can be applied to most facial and body parts including eyebrows, chin, upper and lower lip, jaw line, sides of the face, breasts, underarms, abdomen, bikini line, fingers and toes, legs and back.

Most other methods focus on immediate, but temporary, hair removal – visible hair, or hair that’s inside the follicle but hasn’t yet emerged. None of them deliver permanent elimination of unwanted hair.

Why should I choose electrolysis hair removal over temporary methods like waxing?

Waxing, threading and tweezing are alike. With all of these, ingrown hairs and discoloration may result. Additionally, they may cause an increase in hair growth activity. Depilatories and shaving can cause an irritation to the skin while the hair regrows quickly. These methods can require a lifetime of maintenance. Many can appear inexpensive but cost more due to long term use and are found to be inconvenient.

What about laser hair treatments?

Laser hair treatments are a form of permanent hair reduction, not hair removal. Laser treatments rely on a highly concentrated beam of light directed at unwanted hairs,  creating heat that damages the follicle. This process is mostly effective for people with dark hair and light skin. Light hair, blond hair, red hair, white hair, gray hair, and dark skin are more challenging for laser treatment. Due to the limitations of laser treatments it is not uncommon for unwanted hair to remain, leading people to seek a permanent solution — electrolysis.

Only electrolysis hair removal has been recognized as permanent by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Does that make electrolysis the best hair removal method? Millions of people think it does.
