Electrolysis – Hair Removal Treatment

Excessive hair disorder, such as, hypertrichosis and hirsutism are a source of great embarrassment and emotional stress to the affected individuals. Cosmetic treatment, which improves the appearance, is essential to lessen the pains of these unfortunate people.

Of all the cosmetic treatment techniques available today, electrolysis is the only cosmetic treatment, which has the potential to become a permanent hair remover. It is a kind of electro-surgical depilation where the hairs are electro-chemically destroyed using electric current.

Electrolysis treatment is carried out with a very sophisticated machine (MARICA EPILUX E02), which is operated by highly skilled personnel. An electric current is applied with a very fine needle shaped electrode into each hair follicle to destroy the root.

Today, by broad consent, the term electrolysis is used to describe the general process of electro-chemical destruction of hair. Under this broad term there are three available techniques to carry out the process.
