People seeking hair removal have more options than ever before, including laser therapy and electrolysis. However, you might be deciding which one is better for you? At Affordable Permanent Electrolysis, we recommend electrolysis for most patients because the results are permanent, plus there are fewer side effects and risks. In particular, we specialize in thermolysis permanent hair removal in New York, NY.
It’s easy for people that are new to hair removal to get confused by all the different terminology. The first step is to understand the difference between laser therapy and electrolysis techniques like thermolysis. Laser therapy uses mild radiation to stunt hair growth, which is why regular maintenance is needed to maintain results. Electrolysis uses shortwave radio frequencies to damage follicles that inhibit new hair growth. Unlike laser hair removal, electrolysis is backed by the FDA to remove hair with multiple treatments permanently. Contact me at (212) 633-1503 to learn more.
Why Thermolysis Is a Wise Choice
Thermolysis hair removal is perhaps the most popular form of electrolysis – for good reason. It is considerably faster than galvanic electrolysis, taking only a fraction of a second for each hair. Galvanic treatments usually take 20 seconds per hair. With thermolysis, your technician can treat your entire underarm or chin in under an hour.
It works using a high-frequency current that bounced millions of atoms back and forth every second. The rapid motion of these atoms generates friction and heat that coagulate the follicle, so no new hairs are able to grow. Most people need follow-up sessions every week or bi-weekly to achieve optimal results. But once the hair is gone, no maintenance is required.
