What is Electrolysis?

Electrolysis is the only method of 100% permanent hair removal, introduced since 1875. A small filament with minimal electric current is delivered into the hair follicle to destroy each hair root and remove the hair.

It has now become a practical and affordable option for individuals seeking a permanent solution to unwanted hair.

How safe is it?

Electrolysis has a 125 years history of safety. Only a very small current is required and it works at a single follicle. At our Toronto Laser Clinic we use disposable filaments and sterilized forceps. Electrolysis is completely safe when performed by a highly trained and experienced electrologist.

How long will it take?

Because hair cycles are staggered and varied, it can take anywhere from 24 to 30 months to find and treat all unwanted hair. Treatment at our Toronto Laser Clinic will be more frequent in the beginning and less frequent over time. Other factors that affect length of time to permanently remove hair are your pain tolerance to the electric current and the skill of the electrologist.
