Top Patient Questions


Who Can Benefit from Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is safe and effective for everyone, regardless of gender, age, race, or skin color.
Is Electrolysis Hair Removal Really Permanent?
Yes! Unwanted hair can be removed permanently using tried and true electrolysis methods that have improved the lives of countless people! Once electrolysis eliminates regenerative cells, there is no possible way for hair to return and reproduce.
I'm a man. Will Electrolysis work for me?
Yes, we have many male patients! Thanks to electrolysis, men can permanently remove unibrows and painful ingrown face and neck hairs. Many men also elect to remove excessive back, finger, toe, and chest hair. Hair removal is nothing to be ashamed of; whether you're a man or a woman, looking great and feeling good about yourself is one of the most important things in life. Don't let hair hurt your self esteem, get treatment today and feel confident that you'll always look your best.
I already shave off my unwanted hair. How will Electrolysis help me?
Shaving is a temporary solution that can irritate your skin. The shaft (hair cut off when shaved) is a dead, cornified structure - an appendage of the follicle. Only the follicle is alive. To arrest hair growth, the follicle itself must be destroyed. Shaving and cutting the dead hair structure will not have any effect on the follicle itself. Electrolysis is a permanent solution, the hair you remove will NEVER trouble you again!
Is Electrolysis Treatment Cost Effective?
You tell us. Think about how much time you spend shaving and/or tweezing. Think about how much money you've spent getting wax treatments on a regular basis. Think about how much discomfort and insecurity you've suffered in your battle against unwanted hair?
