Hair Removal

Electrolysis

Electrolysis is a procedure in which individual hairs are removed from the face or body. Today’s medical electrolysis devices destroy the growth center of the hair with chemical or heat energy. A very fine probe is inserted into the hair follicle at the surface of the skin. The hair is then removed harmlessly with forceps.

What causes unwanted hair growth?
Hair growth is the result of heredity and hormonal levels. Also, some drugs, temporary methods of hair removal, and some illnesses can stimulate hair growth. Usually, hair growth is desirable. But when the hair is the wrong part of your body-a woman’s upper lip or chin, the hands or arms-you may be considering electrolysis.

How many treatments will I need?
Since many factors influence hair growth, you will need to return for several visits. The total number of sessions needed to remove hair permanently from a particular area will vary from person to person. Most clients return once a week or every other week, as necessary. But the unwanted hair will be gone forever once the series of treatments have been completed. Each treatment lasts between 15 minutes and one hour.

Myths about electrolysis
Electrolysis is painful. The truth is, electrolysis usually does not cause much discomfort. Modern electrolysis methods have reduced the discomfort to a mere tingling. A topical anesthetic may be used in some cases.

Facts about electrolysis

  1. Electrolysis is a time-tested method that was invented more than 100 years ago to remove irritating, in-grown eyelash hairs. Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis, including the eyebrows, face, thighs, abdomen, breasts, and legs.
  2. There are no permanent side effects. Sometimes, a slight reddening of the skin occurs during or immediately after treatment, but this will only last for a short time. Electrolysis is very safe and, unlike depilatories or bleaches, no harsh chemicals are used.

The truth is, the Food and Drug Administration and the American Medical Association recognize only electrolysis as a permanent method of removing hair.

Brazilian Wax

At Skin Care by Klara Day Spa, a very popular service is the Brazilian Wax, performed by Klara an Aesthetician and the owner of the spa. She was born and raised in Athens Greece and has 22years of experience in European methods. Using the French Cirepil Wax, known to the world as one of the finest depilatory waxes ever made, it adheres directly to the hair rather than the skin, so it is less irritating to the skin. Cirepil stands out because of the unique characteristics like soothing Jojoba oil which makes this product friendly and comfortable. If you have very sensitive skin you can purchase from our Spa the NO-SCREAM cream a topical anesthetic to numb the area at least 35-to 45 minutes before waxing.The procedure is not new-it was introduced to New York in 1987 by seven Brazilian-born sisters. $60.00 and up
