What is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is a method of permanent hair removal where a thin filament (thin wire – also commonly referred to as a needle) is inserted into the hair follicle as far as it will go. Then an electrical current is applied to the follicle. The feeling of an electrolysis treatment has been compared to feeling like a rubber band being snapped on the skin and it will take several treatments. More>>
