We all want to feel good about our appearance, but sometimes it’s difficult to be positive when we know there are areas we would change if we could. If excess hair is one of the problems you’d like to eliminate, electrolysis can help. Electrolysis is permanent! It is the only method approved by the FDA to permanently remove unwanted body hair, no matter the color or the type of skin.

There are lots of different ways to remove unwanted hair, Electrolysis is the only method approved by the FDA to permanently remove body hair. However, for best results, it requires repeated treatments for up to 18 to 24 months. Electrolysis can be done anywhere on the body and is safe and effective for all skin types.

Epilation by Pricella works with state-of-the-art technology and always uses disposable probes to provide comfortable treatment.

How does Electrolysis Work?

A professional electrologist inserts a very fine needle (usually thinner than the hair being treated) into the natural opening of the hair follicle alongside the hair shaft. A tiny amount of electrical current is then applied to destroy the hair growth cells.

Electrolysis Methods

Three methods are used in Electrology: Galvanic, Thermolysis, and Blend. All three methods have their own merits, and one method is not better than another. The success depends on the skill of the electrologist, the type of hair being removed, the condition of the skin, and the pain threshold of the client.

Galvanic Method

This method is named after Luigi Galvani and uses a person’s body as an electrolytic cell. Galvanic electrolysis was first reported in medical literature in 1875 by ophthalmologist Charles Michel as a method for removing ingrown eyelashes. Galvanic was the first form of electrolysis and is not often performed currently. It has fallen out of favor because it takes a significantly longer time to work.

Thermolysis Method

Another method is known as thermolysis, also called radio frequency (RF), shortwave, or diathermy. Thermolysis was developed in the 1920s and first reported in medical literature by Henri Bordier. Thermolysis works by heating the hair matrix cells to about 48 to 50 °C (118 to 122 °F), causing electrocoagulation. It is the most commonly used method because is very fast and effective.

Blend Method

The galvanic method and thermolysis are often combined in the blend method, developed by Arthur Hinkel in 1948, which uses a combination of heat and current to speed up the galvanic chemical reaction to destroy the hair follicle. This method is slightly slower than thermolysis, but is very effective and often used to treat difficult areas.

Electrolysis Prices

Electrolysis pricing is based on time instead of body areas. It is hard to give a price quote over the phone, since I need to see how much hair you have.
