At Plastic Surgery Group of Memphis, the electrolysis procedure can change your life in a major way!

What is Electrolysis?

Since its conception in 1875, electrolysis has been recognized as a form of permanent hair removal and has changed countless lives. The procedure involves inserting a needle with an electric current into the hair follicle.

The electric current from the needle makes contact with the hair papilla, cutting off the blood flow and stopping any growth. This treatment carries few risks and leads to long-lasting results.

Electrolysis vs. Laser

Both electrolysis and laser hair removal can effectively remove hair from anywhere on the body; however, electrolysis is effective for all hair and skin tones especially non-pigmented hairs such as gray, red or blond. It is also a great treatment option for those with dark skin types or a tan, and has the ability to target smaller or sensitive areas of unwanted hair, such as finer areas around the face, like the eyebrows.

Depending on you skin tone, treatment area and hair removal goals, electrolysis might be a better option for you. Receive a consultation today to determine which treatment would meet your needs for unwanted hair!

Causes of Unwanted & Excess Body Hair

There are various causes of unwanted hair, most of which are completely normal. Puberty, menopause and pregnancy are normal systemic changes that may affect hair growth. Heredity predispositions, such as race or ethnic background, may also determine the distribution and amount of hair. Some medications, stress, or malfunctions of the endocrine system may also contribute to the growth of unwanted hair.

Women often have hair removed from their hairlines, foreheads, brows, cheeks, lips, chins, throat, arms, underarms, fingers, chest, breasts, abdomen, thighs, legs and toes. Men may have hair removed from their foreheads, nape lines, brows, nose, cheeks, ears, chest, back and hands.
