Frequently Asked Questions

Commonly asked questions about CPC and Electrolysis

Using modern technology, skilled Electrologists will permanently remove unwanted hair from the face or body. This process utilizes a very fine sterile probe that is inserted into the hair follicle and a small amount of high frequency energy is applied. This procedure destroys the hair growth cells in the follicle tissue, so it can no longer produce hair, making it the Permanent Solution. This, however, is not a one shot deal but takes several treatments.

Some medications (drug side effects)


Some temporary hair removal methods

The average treatment ranges from 20 minutes to one hour or more. The length of each appointment depends upon the amount of hair that needs to be removed. Due to factors including hair growth cycles, heredity, medical conditions, hormones, medications and previous use of temporary hair removal methods, the number of treatments required to permanently remove hair varies with each client.

This is a common concern, so for that reason, you may book an Assessment. This allows you to experience what treatments feel like, see how your skin will react, and learn about the growth cycles of the hair and its destruction. Thus allowing you to make an informed decision.

There are a variety of temporary hair removal methods to choose from, but they all require frequent, almost constant, maintenance and some will actually cause additional excess hair growth. You also may be contributing to additional skin irritations as well.
