What is electrolysis?
Invented by Dr. Charles E. Michel in 1875 electrolysis is the only treatment for permanent hair removal approved by the FDA. Electrolysis uses a small amount of electricity induced into the hair follicle by a fine probe. The electricity has a reaction to the salt water in your living tissue forming sodium hydroxide which decomposes the root of the hair effecting permanent hair removal. In the 1900s short wave electrolysis for permanent hair removal was invented. This is a flash of heat that electro coagulates the root of the hair.
Today, many modern electrologists use a combination of these 2 modalities: Direct current (galvanism) and short wave (heat / thermolosis) are blended together to kill the hair 2 ways simultaneously. This method is called the blend, and I use both in my practice. I feel the blend method works up to 10 times better on torturous distorted coarse hairs.
