What Is Electrolysis?

As more and more people continue to look to laser hair removal to achieve smooth skin and hairless bodies, there arises the question of finding out what the most effective process of removing hair from the body. For this reason, many wonder what Electrolysis is, and how it differs from the diode method of hair removal. If you are wondering the same, then you’re in luck, as this article by LightTouch Med Spa will delve into the different approaches, and which treatments we offer at our Mississauga clinic. So please keep reading below to find out the answers you’ve been looking for!

Individual Hair Destruction

Electrolysis is a method of hair removal in which individual hairs are treated on the face and body, destroying the hair follicle to stop further growth from happening. A fine, disposable probe is inserted into every individual hair follicle, sending heat to the base of the follicle, destroying it, where it is then removed with tweezers. Almost all areas on the body can be treated in this way, including the eyebrows, face, stomach, thighs, chest, back, and legs. Depending on the application site, sessions can last a lot longer, and can be painful, as every hair must be treated in this way. All hair types can be treated with this method, but downtime can last for up to three weeks.

Hair Eradication At The Sweep Of A Device

At LightTouch Med Spa, we offer the diode method of hair removal, using the Soprano™ laser system, as it offers the safest, most comfortable application, with effective results, all at the best price for the patient. The laser emits energy through a handheld tip that is continuously sweeping across the patient’s skin, delivering millions of short pulses of this energy into the dermis. The machine comfortably heats up and destroys large groups of hair follicles in this way, without harming the surrounding tissue. By facilitating hair removal in this way, you are ensured quick treatment times, with effective and painless results, with minimal downtime. The cutting-edge technology of this system can perform treatments on all types of hair, with results that last.
