Are you looking to remove, sculpt, or reduce chest hair? Shaving your chest or trimming with a beard trimmer or similar device can be a pain and time-sink. Not only that, but in a matter of days, you might find yourself dealing with unsightly stubble, which may necessitate re-shaving and trimming. Fortunately, it’s now possible to remove chest hair permanently with electrolysis, which is one of the safest and most effective hair removal processes. If you'd like to explore using electrolysis for chest hair removal in Midtown, NY, contact Susan Davina.
Removing Chest Hair Permanently
Electrolysis is the only FDA-approved method currently for permanent hair removal. Once the hair is removed and the cells responsible for growing hair are destroyed, it won’t grow back. This way, you can enjoy a clean chest not just for a summer or weekend vacation, but every day going forward.
In the long run, electrolysis can save you a lot of time and prevent discomfort. Shaving and trimming can be, quite literally, a pain. First, nicks and cuts are common and could lead to infections and other issues. On top of that, your skin may dry out, and if you use shaving cream, it could cause irritation and breakouts. By eliminating the need to shave or trim, electrolysis can prevent discomfort.
Let’s take a closer look at how electrolysis chest hair removal works. If you have any questions, get in touch with Susan Davina to discuss electrolysis and chest hair removal in New York, NY.
The Basics of Electrolysis and Chest Hair Removal
When you shave or use lasers to remove hair, you’re mostly removing the hair strands. The cells that grow hair strands will persist, and as a result, the hair will typically grow back. Electrolysis works by destroying the cells that grow hair. As such, the hair strands won’t grow back.
As the name implies, electrolysis uses electricity. Specifically, electrical currents are applied to the skin, destroying the cells in the hair follicles that are responsible for growing hair. Hair follicles are the tubes that grow hair, and cells within the follicles are responsible for growing hair strands.
While electricity is used, the currents are generally weak. This means the health risks are minimal, especially if the procedure is handled by skilled professional electrologists, who are the professionals who handle the permanent hair removal procedure.
Small, disposable probes are placed on the skin on your chest and then deliver the electrical current. The probes don’t need to penetrate the skin, as the electrical current will pass through. Hair goes through a growth cycle, and electrolysis is more effective at destroying the hair-growing cells at certain stages. Thus repeat procedures may be needed to get the full effect, especially when removing hair from a large area, like the chest.
