How Electrolysis Works

Electrolysis is the delivery of a fine probe into the hair follicle. Once in place an electrical current is delivered down the probe until sufficient destruction of the follicle has occurred and therefore hair has been released from its attachments in the follicle. At this stage the electrologist simply slides the hair from the follicle. There are two electrical currents that are referred to as electrolysis. The first current is Thermolysis which uses a build up of heat to cause destruction to the tissue in the follicle. The second is Galvanic, this current causes a chemical reaction to occur using the salt and moisture in the tissues. This reaction is highly destructive to the follicle. Both currents can be used simultaneously to create a greater amount of destruction at the one time. This modality is called the Blend. There are no permanent side effects of electrolysis only some temporary redness immediately following treatment.
