A Proven Method for Permanently Smooth Skin
How does it work? Electrolysis has been the traditional method of permanent hair removal for over a century. A small, sterile, disposable probe is inserted into each individual hair follicle where a mild electrical current permanently destroys the base of the hair root. Further hair growth is permanently ended, while the skin is not punctured or harmed in any way.
Will my treatments be painful? The sensation of the current is about the equivalent to plucking hair with a tweezers. (We use a special cream to numb the area being treated.) Most clients experience very little discomfort throughout the short procedure. As dormant hair surfaces, subsequent procedures are necessary.
How long does it take? Electrolysis is more time consuming than laser treatment since follicles are disabled one at a time, but may be more economical for eye-brows or sparse haired areas. Your Electrolysis treatment schedule will be tailored according to factors such as how extensive the hair growth, sensitivity of the area, temporary removal methods and their affect on hair growth, how much growth is still dormant beneath the skin, and how consistently you follow the treatment plan. In some cases laser treatments are advantages. Most patients find a weekly session of 15-30 minutes ideal. The closer you adhere to your treatment schedule, the more effective your program will be in freeing you of unwanted hair for the rest of your life.
How much will it cost? This depends on the area to be treated, but you'll find our fees comparable to other health and beauty care services. When you consider the cost of Electrolysis and Laser treatment, consider a lifetime's worth of razors, creams, waxing and the time spent pursuing temporary, less smooth results. Smooth, hair-free skin is an investment that yields increased confidence and convenience.

"I have a hormone imbalance that has left me with male-like facial and body hair since my late teens. I am so grateful to Rebeka and her staff -- my hair is gone and so is my embarrassment. I go out, I wear whatever I want, and I feel wonderful inside and out!"
--Sandy, Mt. Vernon
"The one thing we can't statistically measure in a clinical study is the boost in self-esteem that is consistently experienced using either method of hair removal. Excessive unwanted hair can be an emotionally-charged nightmare, or simply and unwanted hassle -- either way, it's safe and easy to be rid of."
