Women use different cosmetic hair remover methods to remove their unwanted hair like waxing, tweezing, shaving, electrolysis and laser treatment along with various other methods.
However, electrolysis and laser treatment prove to be effective and long lasting too. I am sure you all would love to learn all about electrolysis before you go in for it.
Electrolysis or electrolysis epilation is a cosmetic hair remover device carried on by experts. It involves the insertion of a fine wire disposable needle into the hair follicle and passing a current through it.
This helps to destroy the hair follicle from the root.There are 3 methods by which epilation is carried on namely - galvanizing, thermolysis and the blend method.
In the galvanizing cosmetic hair remover method a direct electric current is passed inside the hair follicle. This leads to the production of sodium hydroxide and hydrogen.
The sodium hydroxide has a corrosive effect on the hair follicle. This leads to the destruction of the hair follicle. The growth of hair is stopped at the root
Thermolysis a more advanced cosmetic hair remover method involves using alternating current, which leads to the production of heat which not only destroys the hair follicles but also the surrounding tissues.
Hence the cells that help to produce hair is destroyed. Thermolysis is much faster than galvanizing but research shows that after galvanizing the hair does tend to appear in 1/4th to 1/5th of the follicles treated.
A more advance electrolysis cosmetic hair remover method is a combination of galvanizing and thermolysis. Those who have thick and coarse unwanted hair would benefit from this method.
This method involves a blending and application of direct and low intensity and high frequency alternating current. This works best if your hair is in the anagen stage of growth. You can get best results if you shave a few days before the treatment.
You could find side-effects in this cosmetic hair remover method. You will experience pain and discomfort some time after this treatment. It is caused by heat produced for the destruction of the tissues.
There could be swelling and inflammation, pigmentation problems, scaring and other skin infections. You should also be aware and insist on proper methods of sterilizing being adhered.
Pain and discomfort could be remedied by applying flash type shorter pulses and use of topical anesthetic creams. Scarring can be avoided by the proper amount of current being applied and a proper process being followed.
To avoid infection always insist on use of sterilized needles or disposable ones. Research proves that electrolysis, the cosmetic hair remover method has its pitfalls also. It has been found that hair does appear in about 1/5th to 1/4th of the portion treated.
This depends on the experience of the professional, the type of machine and method used. Electrolysis should never be carried on those who use pacemakers.
The last I would say is that this cosmetic hair remover method is costly. So look into all the factors, think well before you entrust yourself for this unique hair removing method.
