Electrolysis is the process by which a stainless steel probe about the size of a hair, is inserted into the opening of the hair follicle. The following kinds of current are used:
Thermolysis or High Frequency Current produces only heat and this heat will kill the root of the hair and allow it to be easily taken out with tweezers.
Blend Current is a combination of both galvanic and thermolysis and produces a wider range of heat in the follicle and is a very effective current for distorted follicles.
Galvanic Current or Direct Current produces a chemical reaction in the hair follicle. It separates the salt and moiture in the follicle to produce a tiny amount of lye which in turn eats up the root.
Hair growth cycle
Hair goes through a cycle of growth in which electrolysis can permanently destroy hairs only when they are at the "active growth" stage. In this stage they are connected to the blood and oxygen supply that the hair needs to grow. When this is damaged, a new hair cannot grow. Hairs can be removed in other stages of growth, however, a new hair will grow until it is caught in the growing phase.
Some hair can have a curved root which makes permanent hair removal more difficult as the probe is straight and cannot curve with the follicle. Electrolysis will correct the follicle with each treatment and allow the small probe to reach the root more effectively each time. This is why it is very important to stop tweezing once electrolysis treatment commences.
