Body hair once offered a utilitarian purpose. We have found more appealing ways to handle those functions. Now, body hair is often unsightly or gets snagged in our clothing. Uncontrollable factors ranging from genetics to hormones can determine how hairy we become. Medications can also lead to adverse hair growth. Susan Davina has trained to help those in the NYC area look their best with body hair removal services.
Electrolysis Body Hair Removal
Electrolysis works by inserting a thin needle into the hole of a hair follicle. This needle directs a focused electrical current into the base of the follicle, damaging the root. With sufficient damage, hair growth will be prevented.
A topical numbing agent is used to keep discomfort to a minimum.
Is Electrolysis Permanent at Body Hair Removal?
It could be, yes. However, most permanent body hair removal will require there to be multiple sessions. This will depend on the size of the area treated and the type of hair being removed.
How Long Are Body Hair Removal Sessions?
Depending on the size of the treatment area, sessions generally last between 15 and 60 minutes.
Why Do People Get Body Hair Removal?
The most common reason is to eliminate the need for shaving, waxing, and/or bleaching all of the hair that we grow.
People who are prone to ingrown hair often elect to get permanent body hair removal to prevent ingrown hair from ever happening again. Those who are prone to skin sensitivity from shaving receive similar relief.
Where Can Electrolysis be Performed on the Body?
Any hair that is unwanted can be removed. The areas that are usually requested include:
Fingers and toes
Back and shoulders
What Should I Avoid During Electrolysis?
It will be important to take good care of your skin during electrolysis. This means minimizing sun exposure, especially before and after appointments. Do not wax the hair in the area intended to be treated. Avoid applying makeup to any area treated for 24 hours.
