Certainly there are many advantages to having facial hair permanently removed. Not having to mess with shaving or sticky hair removals creams all the time would be one of those advantages. Having electrolysis treatments is a safe and effective way to remove unwanted facial hair permanently. Electrolysis works by actually destroying the hair at the root so it doesnt grow back in. There are few different electrolysis methods: Galvanic, Thermolysis, and Blend. These methods vary just slightly from each other. The Blend Method of electrolysis is as its name implies, a blend of the other two methods and is considered the most effective. All three methods work basically in the same way. Very small and fine metal probes resembling tiny needles are inserted into the hair follicle. An electric current is then applied which kills the hair and damages the follicle, so the hair wont grow back.

Electrolysis is considered a safe treatment as long is the professional is qualified. The professional should always wear gloves and use pre-sterilized needles. Long term skin damage can occur if they are not properly trained.
