- Electrolysis: a proven method of hair removal
What is electrolysis
Elektoroepilyatsiya - the removal of hair from the body surface by an electric current. Apply this method for almost 70 years, and the equipment to carry it out continuously improved. But the basic principle remains the same: to the hair root (follicle) exposure to electric shock (it is fed through a thin needle inserted into the skin), destroying the area of hair growth.
Today, widespread electrolysis methods such as thermolysis, flash, electrolysis, the method of Bland and pincer. The efficiency of electrolysis hair removal method depends on the correct dosage of the current quality of machines and needles, the method used.
Electrolysis by thermolysis
Thermolysis - the removal of hair by means of a high frequency alternating current. This current contributes to rapid heating and destruction of the hair follicle. The process of destruction of hair follicles occurs very quickly, so in this way in a single session, you can remove the hair with a large surface of the body.
The method has a drawback: if the needle is inserted inaccurately follicles are not destroyed. Improper hair growth to calculate the correct insertion of the needle can be difficult.
A variation is a flash thermolysis - effects on hair follicle high frequency alternating current, but the exposure (exposure time) is much smaller. Unfortunately, this method requires precision needle insertion.
Electrolysis by electrolysis
Electrolysis - the influence on the hair follicle is a constant electric current. In the area of the hair follicle thin needle is inserted through which a DC current. Around this needle concentrated sodium salt forming alkali is sufficient to destroy the hair follicle concentration.
This method is good that the accuracy of the needle does not really matter, because the alkaline solution can penetrate into the follicle anyway. But electrolysis takes much longer than thermolysis.
Electrolysis by applying both electrolysis and thermolysis (the method of Bland)
When exposed to the hair follicle at a time by electrolysis and thermolysis chosen a mode of action that allows for the effective removal of hair, thus reducing to a minimum the disadvantages of both methods. Thus exposure of the skin to be shorter than electrolysis and sharper than thermolysis.
Electrolysis pincer method
Pincer method - is the impact on the hair follicle high frequency alternating electrical current by means of an electrode in the form of tweezers. This elektropintset not in contact with the skin, and an electric discharge is transferred to the hair follicles of the hair, causing it to fracture. This procedure is completely painless, does not cause skin irritation, and is most often used when removing hair on the most painful areas (for example, in the armpits).
Apparatus for electrolysis
Today, the equipment is available that allows you to perform all methods of electrolysis - electrolysis, thermolysis, flash and Bland followed by treatment of the skin, slow the growth of hair. Modern equipment allows to pick up the individual parameters for each exposure to the patient (they depend on the treated area, such as hair and skin) and significantly reduce the risk of any complications.
Needles for electrolysis can be gold (hypoallergenic), made of special medical alloy and insulated (reducing skin sensitivity to the impact of pain).
