Electrolysis is the only truly permanent method of hair removal. The treatment is effective on all coloured hairs and for most fitzpatrick types.
The treatment involves inserting a fine probe into individual hair follicles to deliver an electric current that irreparably damages the follicle. The current causes existing hairs to shed, and prevents the follicle from producing hair in the future.
Diathermy is a technique that involves the use of a high-frequency electrical current to produce intense heat to a specified treatment area. This intense heat is able to destroy unhealthy or unwanted tissue such as skin tags and moles or can be used to clot blood, which effectively reduces the appearance of broken capillaries.
