As the only permanent solution for hair removal from the face or body approved by the Food and Drug Administration, electrolysis destroys the growth center of hair with heat or chemical energy.

The process of electrolysis involves the insertion of a sterilized, fine probe into your hair follicle in the natural opening of your skin. Then, a quick low level electrical current is used for permanent follicular disablement.

Afterwards, the remaining hair is removed. Electrolysis can typically be performed anywhere on the body, including the face, abdomen, eyebrows, legs, and even breasts. With such a high level of effectiveness and high rate of adoption around the world, there are several benefits of electrolysis.

The following information explains a few of the top benefits of this innovative and effective treatment.

1. Electrolysis Has the Best Track Record

While there are several treatments available for hair removal today, electrolysis is the only permanent solution approved by the FDA. Electrolysis boasts the strongest and most consistent track record in comparison to every other form of hair removal or hair reduction.


Although tweezing and waxing are extremely popular, these methods only remove the hair shaft. The matrix and papilla are left to continue to produce hair. Anytime you wax or tweeze your hair, you will have to continually wax and tweeze your hair.

As a matter of fact, the violent action of waxing and tweezing will typically cause your body to produce coarser, stronger, and deeper hair.


When you shave or use depilatories, it gets rid of the surface hair. At the same time, it gets rid of the finer vellus hair that gives your face a softer and more supple appearance. Worst of all, shaving causes stubborn ingrown hair

In addition, depilatories can result in chemical burns and can leave your skin irritated and red.


Bleaching actually drys your hair out and makes it more porous. In most instances, bleached hair becomes even more noticeable because of the change of color and texture.

2. Equal Opportunity Hair Removal

As previously mentioned, electrolysis is the only permanent hair removal system that is approved by the FDA.

While laser treatment targets the pigment of the hair, electrolysis actually targets the hair follicle. Because of damaging or destroying the underlying hair follicles, electrolysis is the only effective solution for all types and colors of hair and skin.

Electrolysis is effective against ingrown hairs, course, fuzzy, dark, blonde, gray, and every other type of hair you can imagine. These aspects of electrolysis make it the undisputed equal opportunity hair removal system.

3. Cost Efficiency

When you consider all of the inherent benefits of electrolysis, it’s a highly cost-effective treatment. It’s important to understand that temporary methods only provide temporary results.

As a result of using these temporary methods, you will be forced to continue to have these treatments over your lifespan. On the other hand, electrolysis is designed to last forever. When you look at it holistically along with all of the costs, the benefits of electrolysis is extremely cost effective.

4. Minimal After-Treatment Care

After your electrolysis treatment is complete, most patients only experience minimal discomfort. You may have slight inflammation or slight redness, but this will only last for a short period of time.

On occasions, you may notice pinpoint crusting in the treated area, which is your body’s normal process of healing. However, it’s important to avoid excessive exposure to the sun for a few days.

While everyone should use sunscreen on a daily basis to protect the skin from sun damage and prevent premature aging, it’s especially important to use sunscreen following electrolysis. It’s also a great idea to use aloe vera gel to sooth the skin if you experience any irritation.

5. Painless Solution

In addition to all of the other benefits, modern procedures have reduced discomfort down to a mere tingling sensation. Most people suggest this tingling sensation is much more of a shock than pain. Even so, this mild discomfort has been further reduced by technological advancements made to the equipment used in electrolysis.

In the event you do feel discomfort, numbing creams can be used throughout the various stages of treatment. These creams and topical ointments will soothe and cool off any sore areas. Additionally, these creams are designed to significantly reduce the chances of infection.

Electrolysis is a relatively natural procedure that leads to guaranteed permanent hair removal. If you are tired of aggravating hair and painful hair removal treatments, it may be time to choose the permanent solution.
