Indeed, that is likely the reaction most of us have when we mistakenly glance at the magnifying side of a two-sided mirror. Hairs on the upper lip. Chin fuzz. That uni-brow growing in again.
Didn’t you just wax – or worse, shave or pluck those unsightly hairs out with a tweezer – just last week?
How is it that they are becoming obvious again so soon, seemingly sprouting out of nowhere?
And where do we even begin with discussing arms, legs, underarms, bikini lines?
Yes, the desire – even for many men these days (oh, those lower backs!) – to be hairless in all the “right places” has spawned myriad products and procedures.
In fact, according to some statistics, women in the U.S. who shave unwanted hair will spend upwards of $10,000 on products during their lifetime. And those who wax? These American women will spend over $23,000 in a lifetime on waxing procedures and products.
And those stats don’t include money spent on other hair removal products like depilatories or risky procedures like laser hair removal.
Only One Permanent Solution
While there may be many ways to remove hair, there is only one sure way to remove it permanently without risk and without a lifetime of spending. It is electrolysis.
Electrolysis will permanently remove unwanted hair because the procedure targets the hair follicle itself. It destroys the dermal papilla (the part of the follicle that contains blood and nerves) ensuring that hair will not grow back. Additionally, electrolysis is the only method approved by the FDA for permanent hair removal.
Whatever your reasons for wanting permanent hair removal – hormone issues, ridding yourself of continual maintenance, self-confidence, lifestyle – at Changes Spa & Aesthetics we will walk you through the solution for permanent hair removal by electrolysis.
Other methods of hair removal are not permanent, and some have risks or side effects. Creams can have a high PH level; dryness, itching, rash and sensitivity are common, especially on mature skin. Not only that, but these products are unregulated for the most part.
As for laser hair removal, this procedure can cause severe burns, blistering and scarring, according to reports. Unsanitary waxing can trigger ingrowths, which happen because “bacteria can enter the follicle, or by new growth getting caught under the skin,” experts explain.
Electrolysis, as I like to say, is an “equal opportunity hair remover” because it is effective for all ages – including teens – all hair types, genders, skin types, and all areas of the body, including the most sensitive.
At Changes Spa & Aesthetics, we use state-of-the-art equipment and our aestheticians are experts in their field.
After we make you comfortable, a small electric current is transmitted by a fine probe directly into the natural opening of the follicle. This destroys the dermal papilla, the matrix, and an area called “the bulge,” making sure that hair can no longer regenerate.
Immediately following treatment there may be some temporary tenderness or redness. The level of tenderness will depend on each individual.
We use only the best equipment and products to ensure that your electrolysis experience is comfortable for you. Our electrologists will make sure that you understand the post-treatment instructions before you leave and will follow-up to make sure you don’t have any further questions or concerns after the procedure.
We, at Changes Spa & Aesthetics, pride ourselves on our expertise and care for all our clients.
