Permanent Hair Removal
There is NO better solution for treating unwanted hair.
Electrolysis is a treatment as individual as you are, transforming your life by eliminating the need for time-consuming, temporary hair removal regimens.
Electrolysis is a state of the art hair removal method that works on ALL skin and hair types. No other hair removal method can claim such universal acceptability, with PERMANENT results.
You will find electrolysis treatments effective and comfortable when performed by a skilled professional.
Common treatment areas:
Upper/lower lip, chin/neck, eyebrows, breasts, underarm, bikini line, feet and toes.
Temporary Hair Removal
Temporary Hair Removal
Waxing is a fast and inexpensive way to temporarily remove unwanted hair, leaving skin soft and smooth for up to 4 weeks.
Natural Image Electrolysis uses two methods of waxing.
Warm wax is applied to the skin in the direction of the hair growth. A cloth strip is then pressed into the wax and pulled off in the opposite direction taking the wax and hair with it. This method of strip wax is most popular for legs, backs, eyebrows and bikini lines.
Hard wax is applied in the same fashion as strip wax, however, after application, it hardens and is removed in one whole piece taking the hair with it. Hard wax is primarily used to temporarily remove hair from smaller areas of the body, such as eyebrows or noses, where skin can be more delicate.
Temporary Hair Removal
Unlike wax, sugar is made from natural ingredients with no animal testing. It is a paste that is warmed when used. Sugar is applied with the fingertips in the opposite direction the hair grows then it is “flicked” off in the same direction the hair grows.
When the hair is pulled out in the same direction it grows there is less chance of breakage and therefore less chance of ingrown hairs.
Common treatment areas:
Underarms, bikini area, feet and toes.
Electrolysis is the only hair removal treatment recognized as permanent by the American Medical Association and approved by the FDA for permanent hair removal.
WHAT IS ELECTROLYSIS?
Electrology is the science of permanent hair removal. Using state-of-the-art technology, a minute amount of electricity is gently applied to the base of the hair follicle. This process destroys the hair growth tissue. Therefore, the regenerative ability of the hair follicle is permanently eliminated.
The term electrolysis is used to describe all methods of permanent hair removal. The electrolysis modality was the first method used to remove hair permanently in 1875. The term electrolysis branded the process of permanent hair removal.
WHAT IS THE CONSULTATION LIKE?
At your initial Electrolysis Consultation, a thorough health history will be taken to fully understand any issues that could be related to excessive hair growth. Factors such as previous use of temporary hair removal methods, heredity, hormone function, the quality and structure of hair present, medication, and stress all influence hair production and will help determine your personal treatment program.
Your free consultation includes an explanation of the hair growth cycle and how electrolysis works, and a demonstration treatment on a few hairs. A 15 minute session is reserved for you if you wish to begin your treatments immediately following your consultation.
WHAT DOES ELECTROLYSIS FEEL LIKE?
It is common to feel a warming or a slight tingling sensation as the hair is being treated. Certain areas of the body have more nerve bundles and will therefore be more sensitive. Most clients are comfortable during their session with no anesthetic. However, there are a variety of topical numbing creams available today to help reduce any discomfort you may experience during your treatment.
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE ELECTROLYSIS OVER OTHER HAIR REMOVAL METHODS?
Electrolysis is the only true permanent hair removal method and the only permanent treatment recognized by the FDA and the American Medical Association.
DO ELECTROLOGISTS FOLLOW APPROPRIATE INFECTION CONTROL PROCEDURES?
The American Electrology Association has written Standards for Infection Control following the most recent recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Association for Practitioners in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC).
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE REQUIRED?
The number of treatments necessary varies with each client. Treatment sessions can range from 15 minutes to more than an hour depending on the area being treated.
Factors such as hair growth cycles, the quantity and structure of hair presented, previous use of temporary hair removal methods, heredity, hormone function, certain medication and stress influence the treatment program for each individual. It is important to follow the recommended treatment plan to achieve optimum results.
HOW SHOULD I CHOOSE AN ELECTROLOGIST?
The American Electrology Association has established specific standards for the profession including a national board certification credential, Certified Professional Electrologist (CPE). This designation indicates that the electrologist has successfully passed comprehensive national testing. Once awarded the CPE credential, the electrologist must fulfill continuing education requirements or be retested in order to maintain the prestigious CPE status.

"I was tweezing hairs on my chin and mustache area every day for years before my friend persuaded me to go for a consultation with her electrologist.My skin was a mess from constantly picking at the ingrown hairs I had caused. It only took a few treatments before I started to see a change in the hair growth and my skin continues to look better and better."
