Electrolysis is considered to be the only method for permanent hair removal. It works by the principle of removing every hair individually. The advantage of electrolysis is that can be used on any hair and skin color and deliver results. Moreover, it can be used on almost any area of body.
It works by the principle of destroying the hair at its growth center, the follicle. The hair follicle is treated with chemicals and heat energy to destroy and prevent future growth. Probe is inserted into the hair follicle and then hair is removed with tweezers.
