Electrolysis is the only procedure that  directly targets the root and cuts off the blood flow and oxygen supply to the hair inside the follicle. This treatment successfully eliminates the  treated hairs from re-growing and leaves the area completely defined, very smooth and hair-free. 

 

 

No

Laser does not destroy the hair follicle. It only delays hair growth therefore, does not result in permanently removing the hair. Not effective on light coloured hairs  such as blond, grey or red hair. May stimulate new hair to grow if there is not enough coarse dense hair.

No 

Waxing will affect every hair in the area being treated that is 1/4 inch in length  or  longer. Even though it may seem  that   hairs may appear to grow in sparser and finer, over time, continuous  waxing of    the finer hairs, may actually   stimulate  follicles and encourage new and coarser hairs to  grow

No

Shaving will affect every hair in the area being treated Shaved hairs grow back with a very stubbly and blunt  edge. Although it may appear that the hair returns coarser, it does not.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No

Depilatory creams affect every  single  hair follicle in the area being treated. Furthermore, they are also known to    encouraging every hair to grow within the treatment area.
