Electrolysis vs Waxing – What you should know.

If you are considering different treatment options for hair removal, it is important that you understand the main differences between waxing and electrolysis, so you can be sure you are choosing the procedure that’s right for you.

One of the key differences between the two hair removal methods is that waxing is not a permanent solution, you have to continue with it as the hair will keep growing back. On the other hand, Electrolysis is an extremely effective hair removal method because it seals off the blood supply of hair follicles, eliminating their food source for growth. This means that the hair will not grow back, providing you with a long lasting hair removal solution.

Another common complaint with waxing is that it is notorious for causing ingrown hairs and the resulting disruption of the skin. With waxing, the hairs are removed in the opposite direction of their natural growth. This results in the twisting of the hair follicle and ingrown hairs. On the other hand, Electrolysis can actually eliminate pesky ingrown hairs and leave the skin looking healthier, without any skin irritation that is commonly seen with temporary hair removal fixes.

Often people believe that waxing weakens the hair but this is a myth. What actually happens is that the hair goes into shock and appears less. Once waxing is stopped, the hair comes back with a vengeance. This typically takes about six months, but the hairs will appear thicker than before. This is due to the increase of blood flow to the waxed area in response to the trauma. The body's reaction is to make the hair deeper and stronger than it was previously.

With electrolysis, we are sealing off the hair follicles blood supply, thus eliminating future hair growth and leaving you with healthy, smooth skin. Electrolysis allows you to ditch waxing and shaving for good!  With electrolysis, you can be assured that you will receive hair removal results that are permanent, allowing you to feel confident and beautiful in your skin.
