Depilation special task force


Not all types of hair can be subjected to permanent laser depilation or IPL photodepilation. Both of these methods work in the case of hair containing melanin. What then in the case of grey or very light hair which is devoid of this pigment? For that we also have a method – removing hair by electrolysis.

For this type of procedure we apply an electrosurgical unit using high frequency current. The procedure consists in introducing a thin electrode into a hair follicle which emits electric current, destroying its root.

Electrolysis can be applied on any skin colour, on small areas of the body (upper lip, beard, neck and sideburns). For the procedure the hair must be about 0.5 cm long. After the procedure, there may be slight redness or swelling, which usually disappear within a few hours. Small scabs may appear occasionally. Avoid sun exposure.

As the hair does not grow at the same rate, the effect of permanent hair removal occurs after repeated procedures at different stages of the hair growth cycle.
