Electrolysis is Permanent Hair Removal for Unwanted Hair
Group of women, all ages, all hair colours, all skin tones

Why are we, as women, so embarrassed to talk about this?

This is one of those subjects that women "research" in private on their tech. You are not alone! 

Excess hair growth can be the result of hormonal changes related to puberty, pregnancy, PCOS, menopause, Diabetes, or an underlying medical condition, genetics, ethnicity, medications and/or even supplements we take. Throughout women's lives, hormones fluctuate and can cause hair to grow in unexpected places, like the chin, upper lip, breasts, sternum, and abdomen (above the pubis).

Dealing with Facial Hair After 50, or During/After Menopause

Electrolysis permanent hair removal for menopause chin hair

For women, dealing with facial hair is never fun. When women hit the age of 50, or during (and after menopause), coarse, dark whiskers start sprouting up on chins, on the upper lip. It doesn't matter if it's 1 hair, 10 hairs or 100 hairs - if it bothers us, we want it gone. Many women resort to tweezing, threading, waxing or shaving. None of these are permanent solutions and the hair will always come back. Frequently these temporary treatments will also lead to ingrown hairs because the follicle becomes distorted.

I Have Hair On My Nipples and Breasts

Electrolysis can permanently remove nipple hair and hair on breasts

This is a very common area of unwanted hair for women of all ages. However, the subject is seldom discussed as most women find it extremely difficult to talk about. All hairs can be removed from the breasts; even from the nipple and areola. It's not unusual to have hair growing from the areola. While the breasts are sensitive to touch, they are not so sensitive to the sensation of electrolysis treatments. Most women are highly motivated to have the hair on their breasts removed and accept the treatments quite well.

I've Got Excess Hair Growth where I had Laser/IPL

Electrolysis is permanent hair removal, Laser can stimulate excess hair growth

It happens. Don't let the uninformed laser technician tell you "that's impossible" when you ask them if your new excessive hair growth could be from the laser. Unfortunately, many laser hair removal technicians don't tell you about this possible side effect, nor do they put it in print.

When you are born, you are born with all the follicles you'll ever have. The number of hair follicles on your body doesn't increase or decrease. During laser treatments, the laser stimulated the hair that you already had in those follicles to become thicker, bigger, and longer, because there wasn't enough pigment in the hair for the laser to destroy the follicle. This is known as "Paradoxal Disorder" or "Paradoxical Hypertrichosis". You can read more about it here Mayo Clinic and the Dermatologic Surgery Journal and the National Library of Medicine.

Remember, even "successful" laser hair removal doesn't remove ALL hair permanently, but only about 75%. Once the hair has been treated multiple times, it loses its pigment and laser can't treat unpigmented hair (it's why people with blonde, white, grey or red hair can't have laser treatment). This is why, in 1999, the FDA classified Laser as permanent hair reduction (as did the AMA (American Medical Association) and the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Association). Electrolysis to the rescue!

Electrolysis is the ONLY technique that has been officially recognized by the FDA as a permanent method of hair removal.

No...and yes..... During the 1st trimester, it's contraindicated, so during that time frame electrolysis can not be performed. However, after your first trimester (with the exception of breasts and belly), electrolysis is permitted.
