Electrolysis ... Grooming For Today's Lifestyle

A man's personal style speaks volumes in today's society. Increasingly, men like you are finding it more important than ever to look well put together at all times. Projecting the right image, especially being seen as stylish, is regarded as a sign of social aptitude and success - what today's man wants!

For many men, temporary hair removal regimens are essential to attaining a well-trimmed look. Frequently, excess hair on your back or shoulders, around the ears or between the eyebrows grows back faster than you can remove it. Or perhaps you are a competitive athlete for whom regular body hair removal is a necessary chore.

Common Questions About Electrolysis From Male Consumers

Do guys ever do this?

Absolutely! Many men are troubled by unwanted hair. 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, to treat skin irritations and ingrown hairs; ears; back and shoulders. Competitive athletes also choose electrolysis for permanent removal of unwanted body hair.

How long will it take?

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.

How long will a treatment session take?

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, we will provide you with a tailored treatment plan that will address your specific areas of concern.

How do I know that I'm getting good treatments?

We will 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 will be discussed with you during your consultation. If you have any questions, we will be happy to answer them to your satisfaction.
