Many men seek the services of an electrologist for permanent hair removal. Areas of concern for men would include: hairlines, eyebrows, beardlines, shoulders, back, neck, chest, ears and nose. Ingrown hairs are a problem for many men, causing constant irritation and can be eliminated with treatment. Fashion often dictates how much or how little hair is “stylish.”
Women have been removing body hair to keep up with the times since civilization began. Electrologists can remove hair on the hairline, eyebrows, ear, top of the nose, cheeks, sideburn areas, upper and lower lip, chin, throat, neck, shoulders, back, chest, breasts, abdomen, arms, legs, bikini line, hands, feet, toes and fingers.
Electrolysis was invented in St. Louis, MO in 1875, by Dr. Charles Michel, an opthalmologist who was experimenting with ways to remove painful ingrown eyelashes from his patients; he had been performing the procedure since 1869. Dr Michel’s work was published in St. Louis Clinical Record, October, 1875, 2:145-148.
A fine wire, attached to a wet cell battery was inserted into the hair follicle, which produced a small amount of current and, thus, electrolysis was born; the term has become the generic word for permanent hair removal.
The number of treatments is determined by the amount of growth, whether areas have been previously tampered with (temporary methods), genetics, hormones, medications and other endocrine or medical disorders.
Success of treatment and improvement is seen when patients notice less and less hair at the same time intervals, in the same areas, so that less frequency of treatments or session time is needed. Patients who consistently come in for appointments will notice an improvement through several cycles of growth.
Although we inherit a genetic pattern of hair growth, sometimes hair follicle receptor sites can be extra sensitive to free-floating testosterone not being used by our bodies. Medical intervention with oral and/or topical medications may be necessary if ongoing hair growth continues to be problem.
We also offer facial vascular blemish removal(spider veins,”blood spots” and cherry hemangiomas), skin tag or milia removal. (click any photo below or go to services)
