Galvanic – Electrolysis

Galvanic electrolysis uses galvanic direct current to destroy the hair growing cells of the Hair Follicle

The process uses a disposable fine wire needle which is inserted into the hair follicle and applying an electrical current to the follicle root.

Electrolysis is a permanent form of hair removal but it has several drawbacks:

It is is a slow process
This method requires repeated treatments
Shaving approximately 3 days before an electrolysis treatment ensures that the hairs that are visible are in the anagen phase
