How many treatments?>
It is difficult to be specific as to the number of treatments it will take because each client is unique.

Your electrologist should be able to answer this question more clearly after a review of your case.
What areas should not have hair removed by an electrolgist? >
Only with a physician’s approval can the hair on moles or birthmarks be removed.
Does a frequency of treatments have a bearing on success? >
It is important for a client to participate in planned program of electrolysis. It is especially important is terms of hair that may require more than one treatment. Re-growth is very fragile when it first appears. This is the optimum time for treatment, otherwise the hair will rebuild back to its original strength negating the effectiveness of the initial treatment.
Is work noticeable while being done? >
Immediately following a treatment there is normally slight redness and swelling. It lasts for only a short time. Your electrologist will give you instructions for appropriate after care which should allow you to continue with your usual activities.
Is the cost prohibitive? >
The over-all benefits received from permanency, outweighs the cost. Regained self-assurance and individual confidence along with other psychological benefits can mean a new life for you. Continuous use of temporary methods over a period of many years will cost you more in dollars, time and embarrassment. Permanency means forever, and something which lasts forever means an investment.
