Understanding Regrowth and Dormant Hairs

Before commencing treatment it is important to understand the concept of regrowth and dormant hairs. When a hair is removed with its root intact (by waxing, tweezing or electrolysis) true regrowth takes anything from 6 to 13 weeks. Due to hair being dormant for up to many months at a time, it takes from 9 to 12 months for every single hair to appear above the surface of the skin. It should be noted that the hair you may tweeze from your chin today is not the same one you will tweeze from there next week.

What causes unwanted hair?

Hair growth can often be traced to hereditary factors. Sometimes stress, certain illnesses and medication can play a part. Increased hair growth is usually caused by:
1. Hormonal changes at different stages of life, or
2. Temporary methods of hair removal - particularly waxing threading, and tweezing.
3. Laser induced hair growth; laser hair removal has been known to induce hair growth in certain individuals, and the cause it not well understood though many factors may be involved.

What areas can be treated?

Upper Lip, Chin, Neck, Sides of the face, Hairline, Eyebrows, Cheeks, Nose,
Arms, Legs, Fingers, Toes, Underarms, Bikini Line, Chest Back, Nipples, Abdomen, Back, and Shoulder.

What if I have strong hair?

The galvanic system of electrolysis is usually recommended for very strong hair types and almost all body hair.Provided treatment is regular, (having a given area cleared at least every 2-3 months), the hairs will always be completely and permanently removed in 8-12 months.

The treatment unit has 16 separate tiny needle holders. Each needle is inserted into a hair follicle and left in place for a few minutes depending on the strength of the hair. During this time the galvanic current combines with the water and salt naturally present in our skins and produces an alkali solution which effectively disables the hair and it's follicle.

The advantage of this type of treatment are reduced regrowth and reduced sensation.

Is it safe?

The treatment is approved by the medical profession, (British Medical Association), and has been available for over a hundred years.
