Is it really permanent?

Electrolysis is the only method of hair removal that is deemed permanent by the FDA. It is permanent over time. There are three main reasons why electrolysis is a process over time:

  1. Stages of hair growth—Hair is in different stages of growth at any given time and electrolysis can only be performed on visible hair.
  2. Protection of the skin—Because it is important to protect the skin, we cannot use an electrical intensity high enough to completely destroy the follicle. A little destruction of the hair root occurs with the removal of a hair in a particular follicle, and over time this hair root will be completely destroyed. At that time, this follicle will never be able to grow another hair.
  3. Hormone imbalance—If there is an imbalance, follicles that previously did not contain hair may begin to produce hair.
