Myths About Electrolysis
Electrolysis Treatments are Painful
Truthfully, most people do not feel much discomfort during an electrolysis treatment. Modern electrolysis methods have reduced the level of discomfort so that most people only experience a tingling sensation. In some cases, a topical anesthetic can be used.
Hair Removal with Electric Tweezers is Permanent
The American Medical Association and the Food and Drug Administration recognize electrolysis as the only method of permanent hair removal. In fact, in some states, electric tweezers, which can be purchased by consumers, cannot claim to provide permanent hair removal.
Temporary Hair Removal Methods Are Often Better
Chemical depilatories come in liquid and cream form and are a popular method of hair removal. These products are messy and time-consuming and contain irritating chemicals. Bleaches are used to disguise dark hair but contain harsh chemicals that can cause skin discoloration.
Waxing is another popular temporary hair removal method. These treatments are often done in salons or beauty parlors. Hot wax is applied to your skin, allowed to dry over the hair and is then removed. As the wax is removed, the hair is stripped off the skin. These treatments can be costly and painful. There are some home waxing kits on the market, however, they are messy and difficult to use.
There are some electrical electrolysis devices that are made for home use by the consumer. While these devices try to imitate the professional devices, they are not the same. Many of these devices are unsafe for use by anyone who is not trained in the proper electrolysis treatment methods.
Facts About Electrolysis
Electrolysis was invented over 100 years ago. This time-tested method was often used to remove ingrown eyelash hairs. You can treat most areas of the body with electrolysis including the legs, breasts, abdomen, thighs, face, and eyebrows.
Electrolysis does not have any permanent side effects. Some people experience a slight reddening of their skin during and immediately following their treatment, however, this does not last long. Unlike bleaches or depilatories, no harsh chemicals are used, which makes electrolysis very safe.
