Electrolysis Hair Removal Advancements
Electrolysis is one of the most efficient ways to permanently remove any unwanted hair on the body. The electrolysis technique has been used for over 150 years. The machine technology for electrolysis has improved throughout the years and is effective for all hair colors and skin types, even on ingrown hairs anywhere on the body.
Electrolysis was the first efficient method of removing unwanted hair on the body permanently. In 1875, Dr. Charles Michel, an ophthalmologist, discovered this method when he was trying to find a way to remove a painful ingrown eyelashes for one of his patients. He attached a battery to a fine thin wire which was inserted into the ingrown hair follicle, releasing an electrical current and permanently destroying the growth cycle of that particular hair follicle. Electrolysis was then accepted throughout the medical community and recognized as a safe and effective form of permanent hair removal.
The Electrolysis method has evolved with updated technology. An Electrolysis treatment involves the insertion of a sterile probe into the hair follicle from the opening and down to the dermal papilla. The dermal papilla is the part of the hair follicle that contains the blood supply that feeds the hair follicle for hair growth. Once the dermal papilla is hit with this electrical current during its growth cycle, it destroys it as well as the regenerative cells around it. This will result in a successful electrolysis treatment on that particular hair follicle and permanently stop any hair growth in that follicle, permanently.
