Say Goodbye to Tweezing, Waxing, and Threading
Electrolysis is a permanent hair removal solution that will remove unwanted hair and give your self-confidence a boost.
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 the only 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 fewer risks than other hair removal options and lasts longer.
Electrolysis vs. Laser
Electrolysis is effective for all hair and skin types, while laser hair removal does not effectively work on all types, especially non-pigmented hairs such as gray, red or blond. Laser also requires careful attention to those with dark skin types or a tan.
Scientists and Physicians have proven and testified to the effectiveness of Electrolysis in hundreds of medical reports and articles over the last century. However, there is no data to confirm how long laser hair reduction lasts nor its level of effectiveness.
Electrolysis is the only method of permanent hair removal recognized by both the AMA and the FDA and has been practiced for more than 120 years. Laser is considered hair reduction and is not permanent.
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.
