If you’re looking for a solution that could rid you of unwanted hair forever, you may want to try electrolysis.

Internationally accredited electrolysis trainer Donna Leigh Broude from Beautique Distribution educates us about the most talked about hair removal treatment.

What is electrolysis?

Electrolysis is a permanent hair removal technique where a probe is directly inserted into the hair follicle, in order to target and disengage the follicle from producing a new hair. Owing to its powerful circuits and stable currents, the electrolysis is capable of pinpoint precision capabilities and optimal settings, designed to deliver the ultimate result. You can say goodbye to unwanted hair, whether it be facial hair or body hair.

Why choose electrolysis?

Electrolysis is the only 100% FDA approved permanent hair removal technique. It works on any colour hair and any colour skin. Electrolysis with 13.56 & 27.12 mhZ devices from Apilus are speedy and effective.

How many treatments or sessions is needed?

This depends on many factors, including whether the hair is hormonal, if it has previously been waxed or plucked and the area of the body that requires treatment. Hair grows at different rates all over the body. Hair on the head will grow for a period of up to 3 years before falling out, yet hair on our legs may only last 12 weeks.

This means it may take 12 weeks for all the hairs on the legs to show before they can be treated – we can only treat the hairs we can see. Some hairs may require several treatments. As a general rule, under normal circumstances, you can expect to be hair free in treated areas after 12-18 months, assuming that the suggested treatment programme has been followed.

Who are the best candidates for electrolysis?

Anyone, but specifically people with white, grey, ginger, blonde, fine or stubborn hormonal hair. It is also suitable for someone who wants permanently shaped eyebrows, or has tattoos and needs hair removed over the tattooed areas.
