At ND Beauty Skin Clinic we offer electrolysis permanent and safe hair removal procedures for all skin types and all hair types using Advanced Electrolysis methods. Electrolysis is the only method approved by the FDA for permanent hair removal. Electrolysis has over 125 years of clinically proven safety and effectiveness.
disadvantages of electrolysis: can be expensive, cant be uncomfortable , an example on top lip and time consuming . Electrolysis removes the hair one by one. Because all of the hair isn’t on the same stage at any given time, some hairs have to be removed more than once.
At ND Beauty Skin Clinic , we use the top of the range Sterex SX-B Blend Epilator, which can be used to remove hair using the following techniques Shortwave Diathermy/ Thermoloysis, Blend and Galvanic
The blend epilation technique, is the blend of both the diathermy and galvanic currents. This technique is most effective technique and it is less uncomfortable than diathermy alone, although it takes slightly longer. Additionally, the blend is able to more successfully treat curved and distorted follicles also, suit to use for any Fitzpatrick’s skin types 1-6 , Azian, Indian African skin
The Diathermy /thermolysis method destroys the hair follicle by heat or electrocoagulation. Thermolysis SWD is ideally suited for thin, shallowly rooted hairs as upper lip . However, its usefulness greatly degrades with the larger, course and deeply rooted hairs that generally comprise the typical male beard.
Galvanic Electrolysis—The galvanic direct current method was the first method for removing hair through chemical decomposition. The application of direct electrical current to a solution of salt water(which our body is composed of) produces a reaction that causes the salt and the water to break into their constituent parts. This process is called electrolysis. These parts quickly rearrange themselves to form an entirely new substance. The new substances that are formed are sodium hydroxide or lye (NaOH), hydrogen gas (H2), and chlorine gas (Cl2). It is the sodium hydroxide (NaOH), or lye, which is the source of follicle destruction in the galvanic method. The galvanic method is basically a chemical process. The lye causes a chemical decomposition of the hair growing cells to occur. This process is very slow and requires about two minutes to generate enough lye to spread through the follicle of a course, deeply rooted hair. Galvanic epilation is rarely used nowadays .
