Electrolysis is the technique and science of permanent hair removal. A small amount of electricity or a solution of sodium hydroxide is introduced to the base of the hair follicle (hair papilla) in order to destroy the root of the hair.
Galvanic was the first form of electrolysis and is not often performed currently. It uses direct current to cause a chemical reaction within the body in order to destroy the hair follicle.
Galvanic has fallen out of favor because it takes a significantly longer time to work.
Thermolysis applies alternating current to the probe at the base of the hair in order to create heat and destroy the hair follicle.
This is the most commonly used method because it is very fast and effective.
Blend uses a combination of current (Galvanic) and heat (Thermolysis) to speed up the galvanic chemical reaction to destroy the hair follicle.
This method is slightly slower than thermolysis, but is very effective and often used to treat difficult areas.
A very fine probe is inserted into the natural opening in the skin (hair follicle) along the hair shaft without piercing the skin.
Once the probe is inserted, sodium hydroxide or electricity are delivered to the hair papilla in order to cut off blood supply to the hair follicle and permanently stop hair growth.
