Electrolysis Hair Removal
Permanent hair removal has been possible for many years. This has been achieved
by electrolysis. This process is practical for small body areas but to clear hair
from large areas really is impractical for most people. Removal of facial hair
by electrolysis for most male growth pattern and density is an under taking that
can not be done lightly. The treatment will need to be repeated many times before
there is no significant re-growth and in my experience it is never really successful,
unless combined with hormone treatment. Prices vary widely. It can cost as much
as £10,000 to completely remove the average males facial hair. There are a number
of alternative methods most frequently offered as painless tweezering systems.
I know trannies that have spent considerable money to find that these treatments
are ineffective at killing the hair root. My recommendation is to ask for proof
of good qualifications plus previous clients that you can talk to from the practitioner.
Who have finished their treatment and have not had significant regrowth after
at least six months.
Poole Provides Us with A Brief History of Electrolysis
Dr. Charles E.Michel a St-Louis ophtbalmolomst used electrolysis (galvanic current)
to remove an ingrown eyelashes. He had been performing electrolysis since 1869
The use of electrolysis became popular in the nineteenth century.
Paul N Kree, of New York, developed the multiple needle technique. Electrolysis
spread from the medical profession to electrologists.
Dr. Henri Border, of France, developed the thermolysis method, using alternative
current. This method is also called short-wave, Diathermy or high-frequency.
Dr. A Rostenberg introduce thermolysis into North America medical journals.
Thermolysis became widespread with the use of simplified vacuum tube epilator.
1945 Arthur Hinkel and Henri
St-Pierre applied for the patent of the BLEND epilator using the galvanic and
short-wave current. The patent was received in 1943.
Electrolysis equipment became more reliable and offered more performances with
the development of transistorised technology.
With his book 'Electrolysis, Thermolysis and the Blend' Mr.Hinkel formalised the
concept of: intensity X duration = UL (treatment energy) which is fundamental
to a better understanding of electrolysis.
The modem computerised epilator increases the precision, versatility and reliability
of hair removal equipment.
Advanced computerised epilator accommodates software for client files and treatment
