What is Electrolysis

Electrolysis permanently eliminates the cells responsible for hair growth by inserting a small probe in the hair follicle (natural opening of the hair) and emitting an ultra-fast current. Thanks to modern technology, electrolysis treatments are very comfortable, fast and 100% effective for all types of clients.

How about Laser?

Laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) are two popular but limited methods. Indeed, they have no results on the pale hairs and are contraindicated on dark skins. Also, photoepilation is contraindicated on the eyebrows and risky in the face. Finally, customers should expect at least 20% regrowth by opting for these methods.

What are the benefits?

Electrolysis is recognized as the only 100% permanent hair removal method regardless of the color of skin and hair. Safe for face and eyebrows, electrolysis is an essential complement to photoepilation and allows to complete unfinished treatments. Electrolysis therefore meets all the needs of your customers and gets them total satisfaction.
