ELECTROLYSIS is permanent hair removal for everyone

LASER is hair reduction for some

Passion            Skill              Kindness            Beauty

Because, lasers work by destroying pigment, they are not effective in removing light hair in fair skin or dark hair on dark skin.  ELECTROLYSIS, works on these hairs because its mechanism of action has nothing to do with pigment: it uses an electric current passed through a needle, which is inserted down the hair follicle.

An additional potential downside with the use of laser treatments on any area that is strongly affected by androgens, a paradoxical overgrowth of thick dark hairs can occur on the sides of the face, sideburn area and neck.  This will not ever occur with ELECTROLYSIS.

ELECTROLYSIS is effective for many people for many reasons.
