Electrolysis Hair Removal

Electrolysis hair removal, as a means of permanently removing unwanted hair,- was first introduced by Dr. Charles Michael in 1857. In 1916, this treatment acquired prominence among the various methods of enhancing the beauty. In this process, the roots of the hair are weakened by subjecting them to electric currents and a repeated treatment stops their growth. There are two methods in electrolysis to burn the hair. One is 'Galvanic multiple needle method' and the other is 'short­
wave method'. The short wave method is much in fashion. It takes very little time to remove the hair. But it must be remembered that electrolysis hair removal should be done by an experienced beautician only. In order to make the area insensitive or dead 'zylokin' is rubbed as an anaesthesia and then the slanted needle is pricked till the root of the hair. The thickness of the hair decides the depth of the needle to be pricked. Then the roots of the hair are burnt by using electric currents. Electrolysis should not be used to remove hair from eyelashes, inner side of nose and ear and from the pimples. Do not go for electrolysis hair removal if you are being treated by a doctor for hormones deficiency or you are suffering from diabetes.

Getting rid of unwanted hair permanently - Electrolysis: Yes. Electrolysis hair removal is considered a safe and a cosmetically acceptable method of removing unwanted hair permanently. It is a useful way of getting rid of facial hair, but for hairy legs and arms it might prove too expensive and too time consuming. Though X­rays, in sufficient dose, can also cause permanent removal of hair, their use for this purpose should be condemned because they have several dangerous side-effects.

Electrolysis hair removal may be affected by direct current of low voltage or by alternating current of higher voltage. Though the term 'electrolysis' has actually been loosely used to describe several methods of laser epilation, scientifically speaking, it should be applied only to the method of destruction of the hair root by direct current. Electrolysis hair removal by alternate current should be termed diathermy epilation.

In diathermy epilation, the tissue resists the passage of high frequency oscillations and the heat which is thus produced, destroys the hair follicle. Electrolysis hair removal is the less commonly used method today. In this method, the direct current (galvanic current) causes chemical decomposition and death of the hair root.

How is laser epilation done?

In both methods, a needle electrode is introduced into the hair pore until resistance is encountered ­ this happens when the bottom of the follicle is reached. The current is then passed. If the papilla is destroyed, the hair can be pulled out easily with the finger nails or with forceps. If the hair does not come out easily, one or more additional short current applications are made and the hair is then removed.

New innovations have made laser epilation relatively easy. A unique hand-held galvanic epilator for electrolysis - Perma Tweez, is now available for self-epilation. Sophisticated automatically timed diathermy epilators are useful when extensive areas have to be epilated. Some of the newer laser epilators even use sound and light waves.

Is Laser Epilation Really safe?

Both electrolysis and diathermy epilation, when performed by skilled and experienced, qualified -operators, are perfectly safe methods for removing unwanted hair. Home electrolysis devices are now available - but because it is so easy for the process to go wrong in unqualified hands, it is sincerely advised that you should seek professional help for laser epilation.

Does Laser Epilation hurt?

That depends on the individual's pain threshold but usually the pain is bearable. In very sensitive women, pain can be greatly reduced by using a local anaesthetic to deaden the area. Using short bursts of current, also makes epilation almost painless.

Removal of hair by electrolysis is safer and less likely to cause scarring. Ideally, the highest concentration of current should be located at the point where destruction is desired; if the current flows excessively, a cone of destruction occurs and this results in scarring. A bulbous tipped insulated probe has been developed to eliminate the leakage of current along the length of the needle. Short bursts of current tend to limit the damage. To lessen chances of tissue damage, contiguous hairs must never be removed. Despite all precautions, certain individuals would eventually develop scars; these people should absolutely avoid electrolysis. Scarring is generally in the form of small pits though sometimes hypertrophic scars appear­these are common in women who have a natural tendency to scar.

A practical problem with laser epilation is the time taken for hair removal. The number of hairs which can be removed at one sitting depends on the site of epilation, the type of hair growth and the experience of the operator. Diathermy epilation is faster than electrolysis and normally 75-100 hairs can be removed in a sitting of 15-20 minutes. So trained personnel prefer to use diathermy epilation.

Another problem with laser epilation is the re growth of hair; following diathermy epilation, even in the best of hands, 20-30% of hairs which have been removed, grow back. In electrolysis, though the percentage of hair regrowth is much less, the hair which regrows is thicker than after diathermy. So, on the whole, the patient is happier with diathermy epilation than with electrolysis, because immediate results are more impressive. A newer innovation, with a bulbous probe, is termed thermolysis. This has a regrowth of only 5% and the scarring is much less and has truly been found very effective in treatment of hirsutism.

After treatment, the skin should be kept dry and an antiseptic cream used. In between sessions, it is better to avoid plucking or waxing the hair, so that when you go for electrolysis, the hairs to be removed are visible.
