Is electrolysis for me?

Because we must treat each follicle of the unwanted hair, electrolysis is time consuming by its nature. Electrolysis is ideal for clients who have patience and tolerance for delayed gratification, they are willing to invest the time and resource needed in order to achieve a more permanent result. Those people who need a quick fix are best served by more temporary methods such as shaving, waxing, threading, and tweezing. Having said this, one should keep in mind that waxing, threading, and tweezing will tend to distort the hair follicles and make electrolysis more difficult at a later date. These temporary methods may also lead to skin irritation, “razor bumps” or ingrown hairs, and increased hair density and thickness. Also, the temporary methods require frequent, never-ending maintenance, and in the long run are more time consuming and costly.
