HAIR REMOVAL
Electrolysis
Electrolysis will permanently remove hair, but it takes repeated treatments and can be
expensive. The hair is removed by sending an electrical current to the hair follicle to
destroy the root, ensuring that the hair will not grow back. Most electrolysis machines
use a needle to introduce a fine wire under your skin as the electricity conductor. Each
hair is treated separately, which makes it very time-consuming. If the technician fails to
accurately target the root, the hair can grow back, which is why you may need repeated
treatments.

The major risks of using electrolysis are: electrical shock if the needle is not properly
insulated; infection; and scarring caused by improper technique. In the U. S., not every
state requires a license to be an electrologist, which seems dangerous to me. The best
way
to find a trusty professional is to use the list of licensed and certified electrologists from
the International Guild of Hair Removal Specialists at www.ighrs.org.

You also do not want to do this at home even though there are home electrolysis
machines on the market. The home machines are overpriced and generally ineffective
because they use such a low voltage that it does not destroy the hairís root..
