PERMANENCE! Temporary methods such as tweezing, waxing, shaving, bleaching, and threading require time and maintenance. Some methods even contribute to an increase in hair growth.
Tweezing causes stronger hair growth. By pulling out the hair from the root, stronger hair growth is encouraged because of the stimulation to the capillaries found at the base of each follicle. Also, this can create distorted hair follicles, causing ingrown hairs.
Waxing is the same as tweezing, with mass hair removal as the result. Not only do you remove the unwanted hairs, you also remove the fine vellus hairs found in the area. Not only does this method encourage stronger hair growth (see tweezing), it will eventually increase hair growth of the fine vellus hairs that were also pulled out with the wax. After a while, you will notice more coarse hair growth in the area as the fine vellus hairs become stronger, terminal hairs. This method also may cause ingrown hairs, like tweezing.
Shaving cuts off the fine pointed tip of the hair, leaving a short nub which doesn't feel very nice. This method does not increase hair growth, although it will eventually increase growth of the fine vellus hairs. It just shortens the hair in the area.
Bleaching changes the color of the hair to make it less noticeable. This method works well for a while, however repeated use of bleach removes the natural elasticity in hair and can actually make it stand out and be even more noticeable. Bleach can also be a problem for individuals with sensitive skin.
Threading is a method of removing hair by using strings. This method pulls out the hair, and has similar side effects of waxing.
Laser Treatment is by far the most expensive, with repeat treatments needed perhaps indefinitely. For a variety of information about lasers and research findings, visit www.electrology.com.

Electrology is the science of permanent hair removal. Using state-of-the-art technology, a minute amount of heat is GENTLY applied to the base of the hair follicle. This process destroys the hair growth tissue. Therefore, the regenerative ability of the hair follicle is permanently eliminated.
We understand that you may have several questions about electrolysis and the process of permanently removing your hair. Take a moment and let us tell you about it.
Electrolysis is the only PERMANENT method to remove unwanted hair. Other medical devices have been granted the right to claim "Permanent Reduction." This would mean that if 20 percent of the hair did not grow back, then it has been permanently reduced. The FDA has not granted any other technology the right to say "PERMANENT." Electrolysis is also the only method that the American Medical Association recognizes as permanent.
The American Electrology Association has written Standards for Infection Control following the most recent recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Association for Practitioners in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC).
The number of treatments necessary varies with each client. Treatment sessions can range from 5 minutes to more than an hour depending on the area being treated.
Factors such as hair growth cycles, the quantity and structure of hair presented, previous use of temporary hair removal methods, heredity, hormone function, certain medication and stress influence the treatment program for each individual. Electrolysis is effective on all skin and hair types. No other hair removal solution can claim such universal acceptability and success. It is important to follow the recommended treatment plan to achieve optimum results.
