Understanding Electrolysis Hair Removal

Electrolysis was discovered in 1875 and today is still the only proven method of permanant hair removal.

Electrology is the only process of destroying the hair follicle with an electrical current, for the purpose of permanent removal of hair, safely and economically. It is accomplished by the destruction of the dermal papilla and the surrounding germinative cells in the lower two thirds of the hair follicle.

The electrologist inserts a very fine probe alongside the hair in the hair follicle. A very slight amount of electrical current is then applied through this probe which destroys the hair root, permanently ending further hair growth. The skin is not punctured or harmed in any way.

According to the leading study performed by Paul Kechijion, MD., Dermatology Consultants, tests of all hair removal methods were performed and only electrolysis was deemed permanent.

The equipment and techniques were tested, studied and researched over a 44 year period. The experience and knowledge of expert Electrologists, corroborated by qualified Dermatologists, Pathologists and Electrical Engineers confirmed that  neither laser, topical or other techniques could be called permanent because they have proven to be temporary.

The hair removal processes tested and researched were: Depilatory lotions, Waxes, Tweezing, Shaving, Photoepilation, Electrified Tweezers and Electrolysis hair removal.

In the 1980s the first laser device was introduced into the permanent hair removal profession. It was an argon laser that never caught hold because it never proved to be effective, it was very costly and the equipment was very large.

A laser device may contain a gas or mineral such as carbon or ruby crystal and when stimulated with the proper electric current the atoms will focus a cohesive light beam that will react with anything black.

The beam will vaporize the black hair, but will not have any effect on blond, gray or vellus hair. The theory is that if there is enough of the pigment melanin in the follicle itself there would be permanent follicle destruction. Unfortunately there is not enough melanin in the hair follicle to cause substantial amounts of permanent tissue destruction. Dark, tan, and black skins must avoid laser treatment due to severe burning and long lasting hyperpigmentation effects to the skin.
