During electrolysis, a tiny probe, the same size as the hair, is gently inserted into the hair follicle, down the papilla (the part that nourishes the hair). A very low electrical current destroys the papilla, ending further hair growth.
WHEN WAS ELECTROLYSIS FIRST USED FOR HAIR REMOVAL?
ELECTROLYSIS was first used by Dr. Charles Michel, an ophthalmologist in 1875 to remove ingrown eyelashes utilizing galvanic current.
IS ELECTROLYSIS PAINFUL?
Until now the electrical current used in the process was transmitted at a fixed intensity, resulting in an unpleasant sensation. Apilus is equipped with a unique "tolerance test" which allows the unit to be adjusted and adapted to your level of sensitivity to the current, achieving next-to-painless electrolysis.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
The number of treatments depends on several factors:
The area being treated
How much hair is involved
Adherence to the schedule of appointments (to be determined)
Tolerance for the procedure
YOU WILL FIND THE EXPERIENCE OF ELECTROLYSIS TREATMENTS EFFECTIVE AND COMFORTABLE.
