Procedure & Pricing

Procedure

Electrolysis is permanent, but not immediately permanent. It is not a quick fix and does take a series of treatments to achieve the permanent results you will be pleased with. The reason it is not immediate is because hair grows in cycles. Our hair, just like skin, is in a constant flux of shedding and replenishing. When you are born, you are born with a certain amount of hair germ cells and they don't all appear at the same time. Hormones and some medications can play a part in providing the right environment for those hair germ cells to hatch out and become a potential problem.

It will take anywhere from 2-4 years to be hair free, depending upon the amount of growth you start with, what area is being treated, and if you have been waxing or tweezing. That doesn't mean that it takes two years to kill one hair, by any means. It takes only a couple of treatments. As some hair sheds out, new hair is coming in. The new hair can then be treated and eliminated immediately.

Consider, if you will, weeds in your garden. You can go out after a spring rain and pull all the weeds that you see in your garden- does that mean that you won't have to go out the rest of the summer and have more weeds to pull? There are weed seeds under the ground just waiting for their opportunity to grow and of course you will be out there in a few days or weeks killing them. Your hair growth is very similar in its growth cycle. Just like it is important to catch those weeds when they are just popping through the ground, it is also very important to catch the hair when it is just coming in, and it is the most vulnerable to the treatment. Therefore, we will customize a schedule to fit your personal needs so you get the full benefit of the permanent results of hair removal using electrolysis.

Electrolysis can be performed on almost any area of the body. Any hair...Anywhere. You may be wondering what electrolysis feels like - well, it feels like a sudden warmth. There is no poking sensation, just a quick burst of heat. As we move quickly from one hair to another, feeling the quick bursts, your synapse will tire and the intensity will lessen as you adjust to it. Most people are surprised at how well they tolerate the treatment. Usually they imagine it will be worse than it actually is. Some areas may be more sensitive than others and at certain times of the month you may be more sensitive or have less tolerance (like you do with the kids or the mate). We do provide products that can help you feel more comfortable during your treatments if you feel that you need a little assistance some days. Some people feel that they are more sensitive and jumpy if they have had caffeine in coffee, tea or soda.

Pricing

We always do a free consultation and sample treatment when you first come in. You are under no obligation to have an appointment on the first day, but most people choose to keep going with the first treatment to the end of the scheduled time. We begin charging after the sample treatment is finished and you are asked if you would like to continue.

Why do we charge more for neck-and-below? This is because of the position that the electrologist has to be in while working in this area, it can be very hard on her back, neck and arms. Also, please use consideration when having work done on this area and practice good hygiene immediately prior to your appointment. Using personal sanitary wipes is a great help.

No Call/No Show/Cancellation Policy
For a no call/no show you will be charged the full cost of the time you have reserved (eg. a one hour appointment - $80.00). This is because when you reserve a set amount of time, we are there waiting to serve you. When you do not show up we miss the opportunity to put someone else in that spot—and that person may desperately be trying to get into a busy appointment schedule. After three no call/no shows you will be asked to find a new electrologist. We DO NOT charge for appointment cancelations that you call ahead and inform us about. We greatly appreciate (but do not require) a 24-hour notice so someone else can be scheduled. It is a common courtesy to call and let us know if you can't make it, or you will be late—we will do the same for you. Most electrologists will have the same policies so it is in your best interest to make sure and call.
