How Electrolysis Works
An electrolysis treatment involves the inserting of a sterile probe, same size as the hair, into the hair follicle opening down to the DERMAL PAPILLA. The dermal papilla is the part of the follicle that contains blood vessels and nerves and feeds the growing hair. If the papilla and the regenerative cell surrounding it are destroyed, it will not be able to produce another hair. When the probe is in place, a low level electrical current is applied that will destroy the papilla and the surrounding cells and loosen the hair in the follicle. The hair is then removed.
Electrolysis involves a series of treatments over time. The length of the time depends on the amount of hair, its coarseness, the cause of excess hair and many other factors, but once the dermal papilla has been eliminated, the hair is dead and will not regrow.
Electrolysis is still the only permanent choice. DLK Day Spa uses the shortwave method and disposable needles.
