HOW DOES ELECTROLYSIS WORK?
Electrolysis involve the insertion of a very fine, disposable, sterile probe into the hair follicle, which is a natural opening in the skin. A tiny amount of energy is the skilfully discharged into the hair follicle. The only sensation felt by the client is heat passing down the probe to the base of the follicle. The follicle destruction is achieved by heat (with thermolysis) or alchemical reaction (with galvanic) or both blended together ( with the blend).
The treatment can be adapted to suit each clients skin,hair and pain threshold.
During a course of treatments there will be a constant, gradual decrease in the growth of the hair until it has all been permanently removed. The number of treatments required will vary from person to person and will be discussed at the initial consultation.
Electrolysis can be used on any part of the body. No type or volume of body hair is too stubborn for treatment and no body part too embarrassing. We also treat transgender clients, removing intimate body hair prior to surgery.
Dawn is a member of the British Institute and Association of Electrolysis, who are the ONLY professional organisation to personally check the skills of all listed members through additional practical and written assessments, and require their members to undertake annual Continuous Professional Development to update skills and knowledge.
WHICH AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH ELECTROLYSIS?
Virtually any area, apart from the inside of the nose and the inner ear.
Common areas for women are facial areas, ( top lip, chin, neck,cheeks, eyebrows) breasts, abdomen, underarms, bikini line, legs, fingers, toes.
Common areas for men are the upper arms, around the ears, top of the nose, eyebrows, top of the back, cheeks above the line of the beard, around the edges of the beard and any areas where ingrown hairs are causing problems.
Transgender/transsexual females often require full beard removal, top lip, cheeks, neck some chest hair removal and pre-surgery genital hair removal for se reassignment surgery (SRS)
WILL I BE SCARRED?
If strict aftercare instructions are not followed correctly there is a VERY small risk of temporary marking. Provided the treatment is carried out correctly and aftercare is followed then there is no risk of scarring. This is why it is so important to seek out a BIAE member for your treatment.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ELECTROLYSIS AND LASER?
Electrolysis treats each hair follicle individually with a very fine, disposable, sterile probe to permanently destroy the follicle's ability to reproduce, thereby eradicating hair growth on completion of the course of treatment.
Laser tends to treat large areas of skin using a laser light-based lamp which can reduce hair growth, but not remove all of the hair permanently. It is termed hair reduction rather than hair removal. Dawn Beauty Clinic perform both electrolysis and IPL / laser as the two treatments work well in conjunction with each other. Permanent hair removal with electrolysis requires a longer course of treatment but results in complete, permanent removal of all hair treated. Laser treatment works very well on hair with colour but Electrolysis works on all colour hair including white, so the combination of the 2 treatments is perfect. Dawn Beauty Clinic are advanced specialists in transgender hair removal, and both the Electrolysis and laser treatments are perfectly suitable to achieve the hair free results you are looking for.
DOES ELECTROLYSIS HURT?
Pain is highly subjective however the general sensation is of a mild warming sensation or heat ( a slight discomfort). This sensation varies according to the area being treated, previous methods of hair removal, and hair and skin type along with the clients pain threshold.
Electrolysis treatment can be adapted to suit each individual client by adapting current intensity, timing application and probe type, along with the choice of 3 different methods of electrolysis available.
Dawn will review and adapt treatment to suit the clients' needs, and we generally use a disposable 24K gold plated probe which is gentler for the client. If the clients pain threshold is low it is acceptable to use a topical anaesthetic such as Emla, which can be prescribed by your GP and, can also be purchased from the chemist.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
The number of treatments required will vary from person to person as each client will have a different density of hair growth (eg. there may be about 50 hairs and 500 hairs packed into a small area of skin tissue, whilst some clients will have less hair which is spaced out).
This means that each treatment course will vary, and therefore no actual figure can be put on the number of treatments required, but you will quickly feel and see a difference giving you the confidence to continue with your treatment course. You will need to have regular appointments over a period of time ( at least a year if not more) for most areas.
Not all our hair is growing at the same time, and it can be quite a shock to find out that those 3 or 4 hairs on your chin could actually be 30 or more hairs 'taking turns' to grow! On top of this hair thickness, skin sensitivity, dryness and other factors affect how quickly each hair can be eliminated.
Appointment time can vary from as little as 15 minutes to as much as several hours, depending on how large an area needs to be treated.
