Apilus Electrolysis

With over 15 years experience I provide a range of hair removal services using the very latest electrolysis equipment.

Apilus is the chosen system for electrologists throughout the world. Its advanced electrolysis technology has powerful, computer controlled circuitry and gives the highest degree of precision and control when treating unwanted hair. It uses application pulses as little as one thousandth of a second, which assures virtually pain-free treatment.

I offer both facial and upper body electrolysis for clients interested in the elimination of unsightly hair. I can provide a wealth of knowledge gained from her experience to help you choose the right approach.

To discuss your needs in confidence please get in touch using the details on the contacts page.

Thread veins, skin tags, moles and warts can also be successfully reduced or removed.

To assist you, below is a brief outline of the different methods that the Apilus Cleo Blend offers to provide pain free, effective, permanent hair removal.

Please go to HAIR REMOVAL on the next page for a complete set of Q & A.

METHODS OF ELECTROLYSIS

A small, disposable metal probe is gently inserted into the hair follicle (without puncturing the skin) until it reaches the base of the hair root. A tiny electrical impulse is delivered through the probe by a sensitive electronic device, which destroys the hair root. Depending on the technique used, the electric current destroys the hair root either by heat or chemical action. The three methods of electrolysis are:

ELECTROLYSIS - (Galvanic) Our body is made up of salt and water. The combination of salt water and direct current creates sodium hydroxide. This chemical reaction destroys the hair's regenerative cells within the hair follicle.

THERMOLYSIS - (High Frequency also known as Short Wave Diathermy) This method applies a split second impulse of alternating current at the base of the hair root. This creates heat which destroys the regenerative cells. The heat is produced in low intensity within the skin tissue around the probe end.

BLEND - A combination of the above two methods, the heat from thermolysis speeds up the chemical reaction of the sodium hydroxide created from the electrolysis. The hair root is destroyed by both heat and chemical action simultaneously.

IS ELECTROLYSIS PERMANENT?

Yes. Once the hair root has been destroyed, the hair cannot grow back without nourishment. The supply has been shut off, therefore another hair cannot grow in the follicle. The word "permanent" should not be confused with "immediate" where hair removal is concerned. To permanently eliminate active hair follicles requires a series of treatments over a period of time.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS TO ACHIEVE PERMANENCY?

Electrolysis treatment programmes are tailored to meet each individual's needs. Certain factors determine the number of treatments required. Density and coarseness of the hair, the size of area to be treated, the sensitivity of the skin, curvature of hair follicles, heredity, hormonal balance, the consistency of treatments and previous methods of hair removal are all factors.

Treatments will be more frequent in the beginning and less frequent later on. With each treatment, regrowth appears finer in texture and weaker in colour. The overall results, permanent hair-free-skin, are well worth the time spent.
