Electrolysis

We use electrolysis to remove very small areas of hair growth that sometimes appear on body or face as we get older, in particular on the upper lip, chin or neck. These may be individual hairs or may be small groupings of hairs that have simply appeared with age, or that may have changed in colour and therefore become more noticeable.

Electrolysis treats each hair follicle separately, delivering heat via a tiny needle to damage the bed of the follicle, so that it is unable to produce new hair. More than one treatment may be required, dependent on the growth stage of the hair or hairs being treated.

This treatment is suitable for all skin types and, by permanently removing hairs that are often causing self-consciousness or embarrassment, often restores confidence and control to the patient.
