Do I need to do anything once I’ve had electrolysis?
Rather than what you do. Check out our page on aftercare for comprehensive advice on how to take care of your skin after treatment.
How long does electrolysis take?
That depends greatly on the part of the body being worked on and the density of the hair.
How Does Electrolysis Work?
The electrologist inserts a sterile disposable filament into a natural opening in the skin, called the hair follicle. An electrical impulse is applied for a millisecond to eradicate the hair's regenerative cells.
Is Electrolysis Painful?
While a painless electrolysis treatment does not exist, the mild discomfort is definitely worth it for the dramatic and long-lasting result. Clients have described the sensation as similar to that of a slight heat, tingling or sting for a fraction of a second.
During your free consultation, Trui will discuss your treatment options and provide a quick demonstration. This will determine the best procedure for minimum irritation and discomfort, with maximum results.
What is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is the only medically accepted method of permanent hair removal. The procedure was invented by a physician in 1875 and has been fully recommended by the medical profession since that time.
Important Aftercare Treatments
Once we have finished the procedure, there are some very important skin-care steps that you will have to perform to ensure the best results. Trui will be available to provide expert post-care treatment and answer any questions you may have.
What You Need to Know:
The treated follicle stays open for approximately three days after the procedure

Cleanse the treated area with alcohol
Use ice to close the follicle for 10-15 minutes to help reduce swelling
Apply anti-bacterial cream or ointment twice a day (morning and evening) for three days post treatment
Avoid direct sunlight and tanning beds (UV exposure) for three days after treatment
