Get Rid Of Unwanted Hair Permanently
Electrolysis is the only method that has the permission of the FDA to call the treatment permanent hair removal. All other epilation methods must use “permanent reduction”.
Electrolysis was the hair removal method I chose many, many years ago in 1975 to permanently rid my upper lip of some unwanted hair.
OK, don’t be so shocked. Remember I am a woman!
I chose this method because even then I knew that it was the only proven permanent method according to the FDA
This method has been available since 1875 and nearly nothing has been changed since then, because it worked well.
The device was just modernised and made to look very snazzy and streamlined.
What does an electrolysis treatment feel like?
I was a very broke 20 year old student, and this treatment was extremely expensive even way back then. Because it was so expensive, my money ran out loooong before the 2-4 year treatment time was finished!
The treatment can definitely not be described as painful, even though the lip is one of the most sensitive areas.
I can still recall the slight warm sensation I felt during the treatment. My upper lip was always a little swollen and red for a day.
The little scabs took some time to heal and caused me some embarassment. No skin cooling, numbing cream or pain killers were used or even considered back then.
Description of electrolysis technique
I have absolutely no idea whether the galvanic, thermolysis or blend method was used on me. It is just too long ago to remember.
