Electrolysis Hair Removal: What To Know Before Your First Appointment

Electrolysis hair removal is the only FDA-approved permanent hair removal method. The procedure is safe and can provide you with long-lasting results. Cirine Hair Removal & Skin Care offers high-quality electrolysis services for optimal client satisfaction. Here’s what to know if you’re looking to schedule your first electrolysis session. 

Find a Qualified Professional 

Qualified electrologists possess the knowledge and skills to evaluate a client’s skin and hair type, determine the correct technique and equipment needed, and perform the procedure correctly and safely. This minimizes skin damage or infection risks and the likelihood of hair regrowth.

Our electrologists are licensed and have years of experience performing electrolysis. We have the Certified Professional Electrologist credential and are members of the American Electrology Association and Electrology Association of Illinois. 

The Length of Your Session Will Depend on Several Factors

Your electrolysis session could take anywhere between a few minutes to a few hours, depending on how much hair needs to be removed. The session will likely be short if you want to remove hair on your chin or upper lip since they typically have less hair.

Electrologists can remove soft hair more quickly than coarse hair.  Soft hair has a smaller shaft diameter, making it easier to target. 

Cirine Hair Removal & Skin Care electrolysis sessions commonly range from 15 minutes to one hour. After assessing your target area and hair type, our electrologists will recommend the most suitable session length. 

Follow Your Electrologist’s Instructions 

Professional electrologists provide preparation instructions for clients to enhance the procedure’s efficacy and achieve optimal results. Following the guidelines can minimize the treatment’s potential side effects, like irritation, while maximizing the benefits.

We encourage clients to avoid tweezing, waxing, or shaving before their first appointment. These hair removal methods can bend hair follicles before your appointment, making it harder to eliminate them permanently. Our electrolysis professionals can provide more preparation instructions during your consultation after assessing your target area and identifying factors that could hinder the procedure’s effectiveness.

You’ll Need Multiple Sessions for Long-Lasting Results 

While electrolysis eliminates unwanted hair permanently, multiple sessions are necessary before achieving desired results. Hair growth occurs in cycles, and not all hair follicles are in the same growth phase. Multiple sessions allow electrologists to target hair follicles that were previously in dormant stages to make sure all hair strands are removed. 

Cirine Hair Removal & Skin Care offers three electrolysis services with different timeframes. The Traditional Electrolysis service takes approximately 18+ months to remove all hair follicles, and we recommend this treatment for people with sparse hair. The Comfort+ Electrolysis service can take six to twelve+ months as it’s more intense than the Traditional option.

The final option, Large Volume Electrolysis, can take ten to twelve months, on average. It’s ideal for people with dense hair as it’s the most intensive option.
