How is electrolysis an effective treatment for permanent hair removal?

Electrolysis is a painless treatment and helps you with completely permanent results. This method introduces a small amount of sodium hydroxide solution to the base of the hair follicles or the target area. A fine probe is inserted into the skin without making any incisions or piercing the skin. Once the fine probe enters your skin and goes through the hair follicle, it cuts off the blood supply and leads to a permanent stoppage of hair growth. During the process, an electrolysis filament is inserted into the opening of hair follicles. On the other hand, the computer-controlled current is applied. This further allows the electrologist to slide out the hair, provide electricity to the follicle and remove it permanently without any resistance.

What are the three significant types of electrolysis for hair removal and how do they work?

Electrolysis is an effective treatment for permanent hair removal with lots of benefits and a few disadvantages. Many methods are available under the electrolysis hair removal technique, but all these are used as per the patient's choice. There are three methods available, and these are:


This method utilizes direct electricity and moves in one direction to remove hair follicles.

Short Wave Diathery (SWD)

This technique is also called “Thermolysis”, “High Frequency (HF)” and “Radio Frequency (RF)”. The current used in this technique allows the oscillator to move backwards and forward in between the poles at 3 to 30 million cycles per second.


It is the combination of both SWD and galvanic current. In this case, the patient seeks to benefit from both method's effectiveness- the galvanic's efficacy and the warmth of SWD.
