Electrolysis remains the only method allowed by the Beauty Industry’s Governing Body to claim that it offers permanent hair removal. It is also defined in the BMA’s ‘Complete Family Health Encyclopaedia’ as the only means of permanent hair removal.
First invented in 1875 and initially used for in-growing eyelashes by ophthalmologist, Charles E Michel, electrolysis had progressed over a century and with ongoing improvements and modern technology it is a safe, comfortable, effective treatment and still very much in demand with clients today.
Nearly all areas of the body and all types of hair and skin can be successfully treated. Laser and IPL alongside social convention, pressure and expectations have resulted in more varied treatment areas being presented to the electrologist.
