Procedure

We use a blend of short wave diathermy.  This causes the water molecules around the follicle to vibrate resulting in the production of heat, stopping the blood supply to the root, which weakens and eventually destroys the hair.  The galvanic method causes a chemical reaction in the salt and water in the follicle.  This reaction creates a chemical called sodium hydroxide which stops the nourishment to the cells that cause hair growth.  At the Chilston Clinic we employ a combination of both because we feel it creates the most effective efficient and comfortable method.

Electrolysis treatments do not hurt, they sting for a very short time and then it’s over.  Everyone has their own tolerance level but if you find it too uncomfortable, we can apply some numbing cream.
