Get rid of those unwanted thick, white facial hair

Electrolysis has been and still is the ONLY FDA approved form of permanent hair removal since the late 1800’s. It is tried, tested and true and the ONLY method that is able to treat grey, white, blond or red hair. Unlike laser hair removal, electrolysis does not target the pigment in hair, so it is effective on all hair colors and types.

Electrolysis is the best and the only reliable method to permanently remove unwanted white hairs.

Frequently Asked Questions

We always recommend an initial consultation when considering electrolysis. Our aesthetic therapist, Liza Rousseau, will be able to answer questions specific to your situation and help guide you to decide if this treatment is ideal for you. Your first consultation typically takes about 20mins and you are encouraged to call and book ahead as our clinic has limited spaces for new electrolysis clients.

We know that the male hormone (androgens from the adrenal cortex) is responsible for hair growth. Male and females have these hormones, it’s normal and it performs many necessary functions and works alongside other hormones. When androgens are produced in excess, we can see thick hair growth in hormonal areas, including chin, upper lip, areola, even along the umbilicus (belly button line to pubic bone). However, it is possible show up in other areas as well.

Do not pluk or shave the area. We will need to examine the treatment area and the density and pilosity of the hair. No waxing, plucking, tweezing, threading, depilatories, or laser for a few weeks, you can shave and trim hair with scissors as this will not affect the growth. It is also best to avoid peels, and strong retinols in treatment area as this increases skin sensitivity.

Your Electrolysis is performed by our trained aesthetic therapist. An 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 is performed on one individual hair at a time. It is time consuming and a labor of love, it is not intended for large areas like legs or backs. Electrolysis is perfect for faces, shaping eyebrows, uni-brow for men and women, and areas where perhaps laser has been performed but some clean-up is still required. Electrolysis treats all hair of any color and skin of any color.

The level of discomfort clients may experience depends largely on the area being treated and the client’s overall sensitivity to pain. Electrolysis treatments are described by some as feeling like a tiny shock every other second. Others report a feeling of heat or tingling across the affected area.

This will vary per individual. Based on how much hair and where it is located.
