The human body goes through a lot of changes over time. Sometimes due to age or hormonal factors, one may start developing grey hair over the body, mainly it is undesired to have grey hair strands over the face. Laser hair removal is one of the many preferred methods for permanent hair reduction, but it does not work on gray hair. That is when medical science helped us with Electrolysis which is one of the only treatments that can work to permanently reduce the growth of grey hair.
Usually, grey hair is symbolized as elderly aged, which many people do not like to be addressed. The majority of areas of the body can be
treated with electrolysis, including the thighs, breasts, eyebrows, face, abdomen, and legs.
There are a few myths around related to Electrolysis,
A myth says that electrolysis is a process that is very painful: For many people, as they have undergone many processes do not find them painful at all. Electrolysis is not painful but some may find it uncomfortable or slightly hurtful, pain severity cannot be guaranteed as everybody has a different pain tolerance level. Clients may ask the doctor to apply anesthetic cream before undergoing the process in the area which has to be treated.
The second of many myths is that the “electric tweezer method” is permanent, some countries have banned such tweezers as they are not trusted to be safe. Well many reputed organizations across the world have believed and addressed Electrolysis to be the one available and trusted method to remove unwanted grey hair.
Some also believe Temporary methods of hair removal can be better.
Temporary methods give temporary results, creams, waxing, plucking these methods harm the skin whose effects are seen down the line.
Temporary methods have to be practiced on a daily basis or depending on the hair growth, one has to do it repetitively which means spending money on it on a regular basis.
Electrolysis is the best and the only reliable method to permanently remove white hairs. The electric current passes through the shaft of the hair and destroys the growing cells of the hair follicle so that the hair does not grow again.
Electrolysis will permanently remove the hair regardless of color.
Electrolysis hair removal for the face is often pitched against Laser Hair Removal therapy.
The main and drastic difference between the two procedures is that electrolysis offers permanent hair removal and it works efficiently on white hair whereas laser hair removal therapy only helps to reduce hair growth Laser hair removal works best on dark and pigmented hair.
The electrolysis method of treatment entails inserting a sharp and thin needle into the hair pore, one at a time. Electric current is then safely delivered through this needle to kill the root of the hair, resulting in permanent hair removal.
Hair growth is a gift to us by heredity and hormone levels. Also, some drugs, temporary methods of hair removal, and illnesses can encourage hair growth. Electrolysis may be an option when hair growth is in an area of the body where it may not be desired such as on any part of their body.
This varies from person to person, as everyone’s body is different so are the hormones and the way it reacts to the process of electrolysis. Some may need 2-3 sessions whereas some may need 6-7 sessions. It may take time but the unwanted hair growth may vanish.
Again this factor depends on the size of the area which has to be treated. In some cases, the sessions take only 15 minutes but some may go up to 1 hour. Most clients may need a session per week and some may need it on a regular basis but with a longer gap.
Yes, it is effective as electrolysis gives you a permanent result, unlike other forms of hair removal treatment. However, in some cases, you may find that the hair strand will grow back. In that case, you may take an additional session to diminish the growth of facial hair permanently.
