Each treatment is 15 minutes
This is the most successful permanent method of hair removal, great for small areas such as your chin/individual hairs.
Electrolysis hair removal involves the insertion of a very fine probe (the same diameter as the hair) into the hair follicle. The insertion of this probe is not felt as the hair follicle is a natural opening in the skin – the probe is passed into the follicle and therefore does not pierce the skin. Heat is then passed through the probe to destroy the blood circulation of the hair at the root. The hair is then removed.
Most hairs will need more than one treatment, but there will be a constant, gradual decrease in the growth of the hair until it has all been permanently removed.
The amount of treatment required to achieve permanent removal of all the hair differs with each person, so we offer a consultation free of charge and without obligation to have any treatment – just a chance to have electrolysis explained in detail.

What causes unwanted hair?
Hair growth is often traced to hereditary factors, and sometimes stress and certain illnesses can stimulate growth. Also temporary methods of hair removal (especially waxing and tweezing), certain drugs and medications or just the normal hormonal changes at different stages of life can increase growth. Sometimes simply a sensitivity to normal levels of hormones can stimulate a hair growth
What areas can hair be removed from?
Any area with the exception of very sensitive areas such as the eyelids. Don’t be embarrassed about, for example, hair around the nipples, on the abdomen or bikini line – these are very common areas to have hair removed from by electrolysis.
Will it hurt?
Electrolysis is generally not too painful although there may be some slight discomfort and a feeling of warmth in the area for a short time after treatment. It is best described as – a tiny nip or sting.
Is it safe?
The treatment is approved by the medical profession and you should confirm:- (a) That your electrolysist uses sterile disposable probes, which is recommended by the Public Health Laboratory Service. You should have a brand new probe for each treatment. (b) That your electrolysist is fully qualified.
How long does the hair have to be?
Not long at all! The hair may be cut or shaved a few days before treatment however NO plucking AT ALL.
How much does it cost?
This varies greatly with the individual – some people may need only a short treatment every 6 – 8 weeks, while others may need to attend on a weekly basis initially. Prices range from $43 for a 15 minute appointment. An average lip and chin area would require about half an hour to clear the hair which would cost $60. At the time of consultation the electrolysist will give you a more accurate assessment as to the period of time and cost involved. Remember, having a consultation puts you under no pressure to go ahead with treatment.
