Does it hurt?
Most clients find that they are pleasantly surprised with how comfortable our electrolysis method is at our clinic. This is because instead of using a single needle with a "short sharp shock" effect, we use sixteen (or 32) at a vastly lower current being much more gentle. They are all on their own computerised timers that turn off at the exact amount of time that is required, whilst safely rendering the follicle unable to produce hair, for the rest of your life.
The follicle is a natural opening in the skin where we smoothly slide a sterile probes besides the hair, into the follicle. It does not pierce your skin.
In areas that are more sensitive (ie. the upper lip) we sometimes recommended the use of a topical anesthetic creme, which will be discussed with you during the your consultation. Most clients find that they manage perfectly without it.
