We do not provide electrolysis services for the genital area.
What is Electrolysis?
Electrolysis is an FDA approved treatment for permanent hair removal, aimed to eliminate unwanted hairs from the face and body and prevent future growth.
Our expert technicians use a very fine needle to apply a small amount of electricity to individual hair follicles. Once the current is applied, hair growth cells are destroyed to eradicate future recurrence.
Clients occasionally arrive at our office seeking laser hair removal services, when in reality, electrolysis is the service they truly need. Laser hair removal is only effective on hair that has dark pigment, but electrolysis can be used on any skin or hair color.
First-time clients are always scheduled for a free consultation, allowing us to assess and determine the most effective treatment plan.

- How many electrolysis sessions you will need
- Estimated cost and length of each session

Even if you’ve experienced electrolysis before, we want to answer all your questions and ensure we clearly define a plan for permanent hair removal.
How Much Does Electrolysis Cost?
Our cost of electrolysis services is determined by the length of the session.

Does Electrolysis Hurt?
Many clients report very little to no discomfort during electrolysis, while others experience a small pinch or warming sensation. Each experience is different, but overall electrolysis should be tolerable.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of sessions required for removal varies from client to client. Different body areas, hair types, skin tones and other factors make it nearly impossible to pinpoint a number for all clients.
Should I Shave/Wax/Tweeze Before my Session?
Prior to your first electrolysis treatment, you must stop tweezing, threading or waxing for 2 weeks. Your electrologist must be able to see the hairs in order to perform treatment.
If grooming is necessary, clipping or shaving the hair with 2 days of growth will provide ample growth for a treatment.
Are there any Side Effects?
There are very minimal side effects to electrolysis hair removal. Immediately following the session, clients may experience temporary redness and sensitivity.
