So what is electrolysis in Naperville? Let’s dig deep.

Electrolysis in Naperville 

This effective hair removal treatment permanently erases your unwanted hair. Your provider inserts a fine probe, about the size of the hair shaft but thinner than the hair, into the hair follicle.

This insertion follows the adjacent hair shaft so that the depth reaches the dermal papilla of the hair. Once there, the practitioner sends a microcurrent down the wire to destroy the hair growth cells in the base of the hair follicle.

What’s truly surprising is that electrolysis has been around for over 125 years! It still remains the only 100% effective method of permanent hair removal for all skin and hair types.

Galvanic modality

The Galvanic modality of electrolysis utilizes a chemical process to destroy the follicle. As the electricity is applied, the current produces a chemical reaction in the hair follicle. It’s that chemical reaction that eliminates the hair growth cells.

Thermolysis modality

You might also hear this called “short wave” electrolysis. Thermolysis produces heat that destroys the hair growth cells in the follicle. A higher intensity treatment typically requires fewer treatment sessions, and lower intensity treatments typically require more. .

Blend modality

Just as the name implies, this method combines galvanic electrolysis with thermolysis. The applied current heats up the chemical reaction in the follicle, destroying hair growth cells.
