Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow: Get rid of unwanted hair COMFORTABLY with electrolysis and laser
Hair is such a problem. You can have a bad hair day, need to shave, lack hair where you want it, and have hair where you wish you didn’t. If you have too little hair, we can do hair grafts, painstakingly, one at a time, to naturally recreate your hairline. But, if you want to get rid of hair, what do you do?
The first consideration is laser. Laser works well if you have dark hair on light skin. The laser light and energy is attracted to the dark hairs and stops many of the treated hairs from growing. Each time you get laser fewer hairs will remain (so we think of this as permanent hair reduction). It works great, is fast, and is pretty comfortable. However, it won’t work well on light hairs. If you are very blonde, or dealing with grey or light hairs, you need to think of electrolysis.
With electrolysis, a very fine wire is passed along the hair to its root and energy is used to zap it away, resulting in permanent elimination of that hair. It has to be done one hair at a time, and it can be uncomfortable especially on the face or in the groin area. As a result, many people can only handle electrolysis for 15 minutes at a time. It’s effective but slow going at that rate.
Fortunately, we have a solution. We are one of the very few places that uses anesthesia for electrolysis. A combination of local anesthesia, and, sometimes, oral sedation creates a very comfortable experience. You can listen to music, play on your phone, or read a book as the hairs are cleared during a 4 hour session. Hair removal is efficient, effective, and quick this way.
Hair is no match for our technology. We’ll get you smooth and comfortable!
