How it works
Electric hair removal is a very suitable method for permanently removing unwanted hair growth on small surfaces. Contrary to laser and IPL methods, this form of hair removal is effective for all hair colours. We treat the hair with a small needle (as thin as the hair itself) through which an electrical current is sent.
The treatment is very time consuming, since we can only treat one hair at a time. Because of this, larger sufaces are easier treated by the Laser Method.
The heat caused by the electrical current used in this type of hair removal, damages the cell protein of the hair papilla and the hair follicle to such an extent as to render cell division impossible. Cells mainly consist of protein and, thus, once these are broken down the cell is effectively dead. Please do not hesitate to contact us for information.
When to choose electrolysis
Electrolysis is a perfect choice when treating small areas. For large areas electrolyis is not the best option, since we can only treat one hair at a time.
Treating facial hair
Electrolysis is great for removing unwanted facial hair. Thin and light hairs can also be treated using electrolysis, this is nog possible with the Laser Method.
For all hair colors
All hair colors can be treated using Electrolysis. It’s for light, blonde, grey or white hairs on the face and body.
Prior to treatment, we would like to invite you for an intake appointment which includes a test. We will discuss your wishes, answer your questions, inform you on what to expect and will prepare a treatment plan. We will also discuss your answers to the medical questionnaire. The test will show us how your skin responds to treatment, which can, among other things, be useful information for scheduling your appointment. Read more about the intake appointment.
Generally, your total treatment trajectory will take approximately one year – one and a half year. There will be about 1 to 3 weeks of time in between appointments when first starting the trajectory.
There are various methods of treatment, read more about these methods here.

In certain specific situations (medical conditions, when a person takes certain types of medications, etc) we will not perform treatment. There are also situations in which we prefer to wait or need approval of a health care professional. Here is a list of all the contraindications.
