Electrolysis is a progressively permanent form of hair removal that has been performed for over 120 years by trained doctors and electrologists. Electrolysis involves inserting a very fine needle into the hair follicle and applying a very small electrical current that permanently destroys the hair cell and follicle.
Who is electrolysis for?
Electrolysis is the only permanent hair removal treatment available for grey hair, white hair, fine blonde and fine dark hair. Electrolysis will also remove dark hair however IPL/laser is the preferred treatment as it is a faster treatment and can cover a larger area very quickly, laser hair removal treatment is also offered at Brighton Beauty + Medispa.
