Treat your unwanted hair
Your Electrolysis in Naperville
What Electrolysis Treats
- Terminal facial hair
- Black, gray, white, red, and blonde hair
- Finer accelerated vellus hair
Most commonly, Electolysis treats facial areas. We won’t treat body areas unless the hairs lack pigment.
15-60 minutes, depending on the amount of hair growth.
0-1 days, though the treated area will have erythema and edema associated with the dispersion of heat in the follicular tissue.
Frequency of Maintenance
Patients may need multiple treatments to eradicate new/untreated growth cycles every few weeks. Treatment is only permanent when the follicles have been effectively destroyed during a session.
At the time of your consultation, the electrologist will determine the best treatment plan and tailor it to your needs to help you achieve results.
It is best to arrive for this appointment unshaven, and without having epilated your hair at all so we can assess the amount of growth.
Electrolysis is an age old method of removing hair permanently. A fine probe or needle is used to directly apply a small amount of electric current to the hair follicle from the inside, leading to a complete destruction of the cells responsible for hair growth while protecting the skin surface.
Please do not wax, tweeze, pluck, thread or perform any kind of epilation prior to your scheduled electrolysis session. All of these methods will stimulate vellus hair to become terminal as well as multiply the existing growth.
During your electrolysis in Naperville, the electrologist will first clean and disinfect the skin using either an alcohol pad or witch-hazel and will then use a very fine probe/needle to create an insertion into the individual hair follicle to introduce a very small amount of a high frequency current to destroy the follicle.
The heat created from the vibration and friction of the electron flow is responsible for the destruction of the hair growth cells and other parts of the hair inside the dermis.
To get the best results and avoid the risk of infection and breakouts, please keep hands clean and away from the treated area. Continue home care with a post-epilator balm recommended by our clinic, or with alcohol free with hazel.
Ice-packs may be applied to the treated area to calm down any inflammation that may be linger after the procedure.

Exceptionally Efficient Hair Removal.
We have paired the two best technologies for the most effective permanent hair removal results.
Electrolysis near Naperville is the only method FDA approved to be 100% permanent. Electrolysis in Naperville yields permanent hair removal and clients may expect to see results immediately following just a couple of treatments, and permanence will vary based on how frequently the treatment is repeated as well as the amount of hair.
Our difference? Latest 3 advanced electrolysis modalities.
Advanced research has introduced newer techniques and modalities in electrolysis.
We use an Apilus Platinum & Apilus Excel Pur devices that use an ultra rapid 27 MHz frequency to permanently destroy all hair types. With optimized energy concentration in the follicle, the growth cells coagulate quicker for a more comfortable and effective treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does electrolysis hurt?
Electrolysis in Naperville is mildly uncomfortable, depending on the tolerance of every individual. Clients report feeling a sharp sting during the process of insertion and pulsing of the current.
How long of a session should I book when making an appointment online?
The amount of time needed for a particular treatment is dependent on how much hair growth is presently on the surface of the skin. It is best to schedule a consultation first so the electrologist may determine how lengthy your sessions need to be.
What is the difference between electrolysis & laser, which one is truly permanent?
Where laser uses a monochromatic beam of light to directly target a specific pigment within the dermis, electrolysis is blind to pigment as each hair follicle is manually targeted using a fine probe (inserted parallel to the hair shaft). Both treatments will yield permanent results when performed correctly. Laser may not be ideal for fine, light, non-pigmented hair, but electrolysis will work on all types of hair.
What is the best method to treat unwanted facial hair?
When treating facial hair it is so important to understand how laser may interact with fine, vellus, non-pigmented or pigmented hair. Understanding laser physics can help you understand when it is better to choose electrolysis over laser treatments. Finer hair, even if dense and darkly pigmented, will not provide an adequate surface area for the laser beam to focus on. Since the spread of thermal coagulation is relative to the size of the hair, finer hair may not respond well to a laser treatment.
Electrolysis treatments in Naperville pair really well with laser hair removal to give permanent and lasting results.
At the time of your consultation, we shall assess your hair growth and concerns to determine the best treatment plan for you.
