Electrolysis Hair Removal: Permanent Solution You Need

It’s time to escape the waxing and threading sessions that never end. At CoLaz, we have many alternatives for hair removal, such as laser and electrolysis hair removal, which are just what you need!

What Is Electrolysis Hair Removal?

Electrolysis is another method to remove unwanted hair from the face and body. Electrolysis has been around since 1875 and was invented by Doctor Charles Michel. Electrolysis is the only FDA-approved 100% permanent method of hair removal.

Electrolysis uses a fine needle inserted into the hair follicle. The current passes through the needle into the individual hair follicle, which produces either a chemical reaction or heat in the tissue, depending on the type of current used.

What Method Of Electrolysis Does Colaz Use?

There are three main currents:


Thermolysis current

At Colaz, we only use the top Apilus computerised electrolysis technology that delivers the best results, virtually painless, comfortable treatments, and less tissue damage. The most common method used is thermolysis with a combination of a blend.

How Many Treatments Are Required?

How Many Treatments Are Required?

When starting electrolysis, you need several treatments as electrolysis treats each hair follicle individually and only destroys hair permanently in the anagen phase. This is when the hair is actively growing in the root and is attached to the dermal papilla, which supplies the hair with oxygen and blood.

Hairs in the catagen and telogen phase are hairs that have detached themselves from the dermal papilla, and the shedding phase begins. Treating hairs in this phase is less effective but can still be treated by electrolysis, but our main aim with electrolysis is to treat in the anagen phase.


It is because of this hair growth cycle you require a series of treatments. For example, if you are doing a small area such as the chin and have minimal hairs, then all the hairs can usually be treated and removed in the first session, but you will be advised to return in 1-2 weeks once your hair starts to grow and come through. This is very important as if you leave it too long between sessions, and we are unlikely to catch the hair growth in the anagen phase.

Once the hairs are treated successfully in the anagen phase, you will receive permanent destruction of the follicle.

During the first three months, clients need regular treatment, and as the hairs subside, the duration increase – all of this will be explained to you during your consultation in more detail

Does Electrolysis Have Any Side Effects?

Does Electrolysis Have Any Side Effects?

Electrolysis is a safe and effective hair removal technique that can significantly benefit those who undergo treatments. Some of the side effects are:

  • Redness on treated areas, which may last for 24-72 hours or up to 10 days
  • There may be bumps or swelling at the site where the needle was inserted during treatment (this usually subsides within 24-72 hours)
  • You may have tiny scabs form, but this must be left alone to avoid scarring

Of course, electrolysis isn’t without risks, so if you notice any abnormal reactions after your session, don’t hesitate to consult with our clinicians for professional advice.

Genetics also plays a significant role in a person’s predisposition to excess hair growth. For many, constantly shaving or waxing is more of a necessary medical side effect than a beauty regime.

Electrolysis hair removal can be the miracle cure for those who feel they have run out of options. Let CoLaz provide an expert look at this effective hair removal method.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    A typical reaction from electrolysis will consist of reddening the treated skin, light swelling of the tissues, small pinprick scabs can appear, or itching may also occur. These effects are temporary and will typically subside within 24-72 hours – bruising can also occur with minor bleeding at the site.

    Electrolysis is a commitment, and depending on the area, you will require repeat treatments every 1-2 weeks to treat the hair follicles. We usually state that as soon as you see your hairs coming through, they are long enough for us to remove with tweezers, and you should reattend for your treatment. Results typically will be seen around the 3rd month of treatment.

    Clients getting larger areas may need 2-3 a week to clear the area – but this will be explained in your consultation.

    As explained above, it all depends on what stage your hair growth is in. Electrolysis is 100% permanent hair removal and successful treats anagen hair growth.

    Laser hair removal reduces hair growth and is excellent for darker hair growth; however, it can not treat blond, fine, fluffy or grey hairs. The treatment is quick and effective, requiring a monthly visit.

    Electrolysis is the only FDA approved method for 100% permanent removal of hair. It treats all hair types and skin types. You require regular visits for treatments, and if treating more extensive areas, you are required to return 3 times a week.

    Yes. Most of our clients have laser hair removal first and then return 7-10 days later to treat grey/ white hairs. This is an excellent combination and delivers a great result

    If you buy 30 minutes or more, you can spread the session out as you like. For example, if you purchase a 300-minute course equivalent to 5 hours, you can use 15-30 mins or as much as you need each time you come in for treatment. All we do is minus what you have used of the total minutes.

    Please note minimum per session will be 5 minutes to use.

    We recommend against tweezing or any form of epilation that removes the hairs between electrolysis appointments. We aim to destroy the hair follicle, and if you epilate your hairs between treatments, it defeats the object.

    The short answer is no; Electrolysis does not cause ingrown hairs.

    The sensation of the process can vary from person to person, and the pain will depend on your threshold for pain.

    There are no published studies that support these claims. At best, electrolysis may slightly enlarge your pores, but this is only temporary.

    It does not change hair thickness; it just removes hairs from a particular area visible to those around you.

    Yes, electrolysis not only removes hair permanently at the anagen phase but also reduces the thickness of your hair. Even if your hairs are in the catagen phase or telogen phase, they can be still treated. The great news is electrolysis doesn’t involve any chemicals that can damage your skin or hair.

    Some people will not undergo electrolysis treatment, including pacemakers, hormonal disorders, or autoimmune diseases such as Lupus. Your electrolysis specialist should determine this during your initial consultation and recommend the best course of action according to the situation.

    We advise that you wait until at least six months after birth before starting electrolysis treatments if you’re pregnant.

    The bumps from electrolysis last for a few days, but some people have reported that they can last up to two weeks. The person may be experiencing an allergic reaction of sorts, in which case we advised them to come back to the clinic and speak with the clinician

    If not, it’s likely safe to wait out and let them go away on their own. The best way to do this is by applying ice packs as directed above.

    The skin will be in the healing process for about a week, but it’s possible that someone could need as little as one day before they can resume normal activities.

    Electrolysis hair removal is 100% safe. The electrolysis process removes the entire follicle from your skin by sending a mild current through each hair to kill it and prevent any future growth. Once all hairs have been destroyed, they will be permanently removed from your skin.
