One of the Original Electrolysis centre in North Vancouver.
Electrolysis is a method of removing individual hairs from the face & body. Today's medical electrolysis devices destroy the growth center of the hair with chemical or heat energy. After a very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle, the hair is removed with tweezers.
Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis, including the eyebrows, face, abdomen, thighs, breasts, and legs. There are generally no permanent side effects, but sometimes a temporary, slight reddening of the skin may occur.
Electrolysis With Sequentium VMC
Electrolysis with Sequentium Vmc hair removal is removal of hair follicles by applying heat using electric currents. This is the only permanent hair removal method recognized and practiced by the medical & beauty community by licensed electrologists.
Dramatically different from all electrolysis treatments; the sequentium vmc system uses variable modulated currents to ensure quick, effective and comfortable hair removal, permanently.
Electrolysis is used on all different areas from face to body and is charged by the minute. We use sterile, disposable needles only once, ensuring your complete safety.
Is Electrolysis Painful?
Electrolysis current used in the process is transmitted at a fixed intensity, resulting in an unpleasant sensation. Sequentium VMC is an innovative machine that patented sequential modulation system by silhouette-tone. During the insertion of the probe the machine modulates the intensity and duration of the current, achieving next to painless electrolysis.
What Causes Unwanted Hair Growth?
How Many Electrolysis Treatments Will I Need?
Hair growth is the result of heredity and hormone levels. Also, some drugs, temporary methods of hair removal, and illnesses can stimulate hair growth. Electrolysis may be an option when hair growth is in an area of the body where it may not be desired such as on a woman's upper lip, chin, or bikini line.
Many factors influence hair growth, so you will need to return for several electrolysis visits. The total number of sessions needed to remove hair permanently from a particular area will vary from person to person. Most clients return once a week or every other week as needed. But the unwanted hair will be gone forever once the series of treatments is complete. Each treatment lasts between 15 minutes and one hour.
Myths About Electrolysis
Myth: Electrolysis is painful
In most cases, electrolysis actually does not cause much discomfort. Modern electrolysis methods have reduced the discomfort to a mere tingling. A topical anesthetic cream may be used in some cases.
Myth: The laser hair removal method is permanent
The FDA and the Canadian Medical Association recognize only electrolysis as a permanent method of removing gray and white hair. Since Electrolysis works with Radio Frequency, it doesn't work on the pigment of the hair so unlike laser hair removal it is a great method for treating gray, white and hairs with no or not much pigment.
Myth: Temporary methods of hair removal can be better
Chemical depilatories (liquids or creams) are often used to remove body hair. These products contain irritating chemicals and can be time-consuming and messy. Likewise, bleaches contain harsh chemicals and do little to disguise dark hair. They may also discolor skin. Waxing is another temporary method of hair removal and is usually done in salons. A hot wax is applied to the skin and removed once it has dried over the hair. The hair is stripped off when the wax is removed. Waxing can be painful and costly. Home waxing kits are available, but they can be messy and difficult to use. There are electrolysis devices available for home use, but they are often unsafe for use by anyone who is not trained in electrolysis.
