Wondering about our electrolysis vancouver prices

Electrolysis

How it works:  A thin filament is inserted into the hair follicle as far as it will go. Then an electrical current is applied to the follicle. Once the hair has been treated it is gently lifted out. You should hardly even feel the hair being removed from the follicle.

Best for: Because Electrolysis takes time, it’s best for small areas like the upper lip or chin. Various pricing options are available based on time.

How long it lasts: You’ll likely need treatments every 1-2 weeks until the hair is mostly gone (around 13-15 sessions).

Laser Hair Removal

How it works: Laser Hair Removal rapidly heats up the papilla and root sheath to destroy the follicle. It doesn’t damage other structures in the skin like the nerve endings and blood vessels. The advantage of the laser is that the laser beam can treat several follicles at the same time.

Best for: Laser Hair Removal works anywhere on the body. We have pricing options for small areas like your face to large areas like your legs or back.

How long it lasts: It may take between 6-12 treatments to see results. You may need to go back every 6-12 months for a touch-up.
