Time Frames You Can Expect – How Long Does Electrolysis Treatment Take?

Electrolysis is an extremely effective hair removal technique that works by sealing off the blood supply to hair follicles, eliminating its food source for growth. Electrolysis prevents opportunities for treated areas to re-grow and is accomplished over a series of treatments.

A common question we receive at Jade Electrolysis is “how long do treatments take?” With the Desloges Method, if the treatment area on an average person with average hair is treated every 6 to 8 weeks, the hair should be eliminated within one year. The reason we say “average person” is because the better your body is at healing, the more treatments you will need. When electrolysis is performed, it is destroying the hair follicle. The faster your body heals, the quicker the hair follicle recovers and the more treatments you will require to rid the hair completely. The reason we say “average hair” is that finer hairs have a longer growth cycle. For example, a fine hair on the upper lip will take approximately 12 to 14 weeks to regrow, if it is going to come back. Larger, thicker hairs, such as bikini line hairs, only take 6 to 8 weeks to return.

Also, the frequency of your treatments is of paramount importance. If you are getting face-work done, it is most effective to have a full treatment every 2-3 weeks. If you are getting bodywork done, a full treatment every 6-8 weeks is best. This will increase effectiveness and decrease the total number of treatments required, also minimizing both pain and trauma to the skin.

Treatment can be completed for any individual, regardless of hair or skin colour. 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.
