Electrolysis
(Needle Epilation)

Electrolysis for hair removal is a safe and effective method that uses an electric current to permanently remove unwanted hair. During the procedure, a specialized device called an electrolysis machine is used to deliver a small electrical current to individual hair follicles. This current damages the follicle, hindering future hair growth.

Electrolysis is known for its precision, making it suitable for small areas and various hair types. It is a popular choice for those seeking a permanent solution to unwanted hair on the face or body. Peaches + Co is proud to offer a permanent hair removal solution for any hair color and type!

How long do Electrolysis results last? Is it going to hurt?

 

In general, electrolysis is considered a permanent hair removal method, as it targets individual hair follicles to prevent future growth. Multiple sessions are required to treat all active follicles, and occasional maintenance sessions may be needed over time.

Electrolysis can cause some sensation during the procedure. The degree of pain varies among individuals, and factors such as the treatment area, individual pain threshold, and the skill of the practitioner can influence the experience. Many people describe the sensation as a mild stinging or pricking feeling!

Electrolysis may be for you if:

  • You have thick, coarse, stubborn facial hair, especially those with PCOS or hormonal growth.
  • You aren’t a candidate for laser hair removal due to having white, blonde or red hair. Electrolysis doesn’t need hair to be a certain color. Just needs a live hair!
  • You have leftover stubborn hairs that weren’t successfully terminated with laser hair removal.

Electrolysis Pricing

 

We based pricing by the duration of minutes the session, irrespective of the treatment area. The number of minutes spent depends on your tolerance and the speed at which you wish to clear the area.

Achieving optimal results typically requires multiple sessions spaced out every 4-6 weeks to address all active follicles. Additionally, occasional maintenance sessions may be necessary over time.

Electrolysis has three modalities: Galvanic, Blend and Thermolysis. Allows our highly trained electrologist at Peaches + Co choose the best method for your hair type and desired results!
