What happens when you book a free consultation?
I will get back to you to arrange a day and time for you to come to my clinic. Everyone is different so the purpose of a free consultation is to assess your electrolysis needs – I cannot do this over the phone and without meeting you.
When I meet you I will assess your skin type, hair growth and the size of the area you want to work on. I will then be able to provide more accurate answers to your questions. After your free consultation you are under no obligation to continue with treatment.
How much will electrolysis cost?
Each case is different, it depends on the hair growth, the area is being treated and how large that area is. I will be able to give you a clearer indication during your consultation. Please review our pricelist for an indication of treatment costs.

How does laser treatment differ to electrolysis?
Lasers work from the outside, detecting the hair pigment (MELANIN). This means there needs to be a strong contrast between the skin (white) and the hair (dark) to effectively reduce the amount of hair a person has. In contrast, electrolysis permanently eliminates the cells responsible for hair growth. It attacks the hair follicle from the inside leading to the direct destruction of the cells responsible for hair growth, while protecting the skin’s surface.
What areas can be treated?
Face: upper lip, chin, sides of face, neck, hair lines, eyebrows.
Body: arms, legs, underarms, fingers, toes, bikini line, chest, nipples, back, shoulders, stomach.
What causes unwanted hair?
There are a number of factors that can cause unwanted or excess hair. These include hereditary conditions, medication for certain illnesses, hormonal changes and stress. Also, temporary methods of hair removal (waxing and tweezing) can cause an increase in hair growth.
Can a pregnant woman receive electrolysis treatments?
A pregnant woman should generally not undergo electrolysis treatments during the first three months of pregnancy. Why? In order to keep sources of stress to a minimum during this higher-risk period. After the first trimester, she can undergo hair removal treatments using high-frequency current only. We do ask for medical clearance, to make sure her pregnancy is going well and no complications are expected.
