Uber Beauty Electrolysis - Hair Removal About Electrolysis: Electrolysis is a method of removing individual hairs from the face and body. Today's advanced electrolysis devices destroy the growth center (dermal papilla) of the hair with either chemical changes, heat energy or a combination of both. A very fine probe (thickness of the size of the hair we are removing) is inserted into the hair follicle at the surface of the skin then a mild current is passed to the hairs energy centre destroying cells, preventing its growth. The hair is then removed harmlessly with tweezers. Electrolysis is the only known ‘permanent’ hair removal treatment to remove unwanted hair and despite other technologies present on the market for hair removal electrolysis still has a very important place. It has several advantages over IPL and Laser especially for small or sensitive areas of the body and face: ≈ It is less expensive ≈ It causes permanent destruction of the hair follicle ≈ Electrolysis hair removal is a very skilled procedure and takes time; therefore, it is more suitable for smaller areas or sensitive areas with fewer hairs. ≈ It will remove white, blonde and red hairs permanently which cannot be treated by IPL/Laser ≈ Can be used to treat: eyebrows, lip, chin, hairline, nasal hair, nipple hair, underarms, ear hair, fingers, toes, distorted follicles as well as most body hair.

Hair growth are effected by; genetics, hormonal levels, drugs and medicines, illnesses and stress levels and usually cause unwanted hair on our face and bodies. When hair develops on an undesirable part of the body ie: upper lip or chin on a woman, it can completely effect our self esteem and confidence, and this is when you may want to consider electrolysis. How many treatments will I need? Since many factors influence hair growth, you will need to return for several visits. The total number of sessions needed to remove hair permanently from a particular area will vary from person to person. Most clients return once a week or every other week, as necessary. But the unwanted hair will be gone forever once the series of treatments have been completed. Each treatment lasts between 15 minutes and one hour. Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis, including the eyebrows, face, thighs, abdomen, breasts, and legs. There are no permanent side effects. Sometimes, a slight reddening of the skin occurs during or immediately after treatment, but this will only last for a short time. Electrologist’s are people who have undergone training to professionally administer the treatment. If you are considering undergoing electrolysis, it is very important that you do your research before committing to an appointment. Ask the person doing the treatments how long did it take to train; a typical NVQ L3 therapist usually takes 1 full year to specialise and to be competent in electrology, unlike some which have done a basic course over 1-2 days. The wrong decision can lead to, extra sessions and costs, unnecessary discomfort with an increase in scaring and undesirable results. * Uber Beauty use the top of the range Sterex SX-B Blend Epilator which can be used to remove hair using the following techniques: Diathermy/Thermoloysis, Blend and Galvanic and offers treatments in ‘Advanced Electrolysis’ for thread veins, warts, verruca, milia, skin tags, Spider Naevi etc. * We are also regulated and inspected by Environmental Health for our electrolysis treatments, for clinic hygiene and sterilisation practices.
