It's okay to shave between treatments, but never, ever tweeze!
Did you know?
The hair you see is not all the hair you have. Hair grows in cycles. That's why it takes more than one appointment to permanently clear an area.
For a more comfortable treatment, avoid caffeine for a few hours before your appointment.
Ask your electrologist for aftercare advice. We can recommend the product that is right for your skin and treatment program.
Did you know?
Gently exfoliating your skin before your treatment opens up the follicles and lets the unwanted hair slide out more easily.
Did you Know?
Electrology is the only hair removal method recognized as permanent by the FDA.
Did you know?
If your electrologist can't see the hairs, they can't zap the hairs. Plucking, waxing, threading, or tweezing before your hair removal appointment reduces the number of hairs your electrologist can remove.
Clean skin releases unwanted hair more easily. Remove your makeup before your appointment, so the hair follicles are clean and accessible.
Talk to your electrologist about any questions or concerns. We want your experience to be as comfortable and effective as possible.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
Drinking plenty of water helps unwanted hair slide right out.

A well groomed appearance is important in business as well as socially. Beyond that, some men just naturally have too much body hair for their own sense of style or their partner's aesthetic taste.
If you're not someone who cheerfully puts up with a time-consuming hair maintenance routine, you've found the permanent hair removal solution for men: electrolysis.
Back hair and ear hair come to mind, but other areas are part of the "manscaping" process. Some common areas of treatment are: eyebrows, especially if a unibrow is of concern; beard sculpting, to eliminate shaving on the cheeks and neck; neckline hair, to treat skin irritations and ingrown hairs; ear hair; back hair and shoulder hair. Competitive athletes also choose electrolysis for permanent removal of unwanted body hair.
The length of a treatment, and the number of treatments to complete the process, will depend on the amount of hair to be removed. Defining brows or treating ears will take a lot less time than removing the heavy growth on a back. It is important to know that consistent clearings, of any area, will achieve permanence sooner than having sporadic appointments.
Treatment sessions can range from 15 minutes to more than an hour, depending on the area being treated. Based on a thorough and confidential consultation, a professional electrologist will provide you with a tailored treatment plan that will address your specific areas of concern.
The electrologist should explain all aspects of the treatments, recommend a treatment schedule that will help you accomplish your hair removal goals, and explain how you should take care of the treated skin.
Generally speaking, you should not feel the insertion of the probe into the hair follicle, nor should you feel like the hair is being pulled out when it is removed; the hair will easily slide out of the follicle when properly treated. You skin will likely be red after treatment. The redness should dissipate within the day. Your skin should not be unduly irritated and will heal normally if a few precautions are taken, as should be discussed during your consultation. If you have any questions, the electrologist should be happy to answer them to your satisfaction.
