Preparation before Electrolysis session
- It is important to maintain cleanliness of the procedure. It is always best to have a bath before electrolysis appointment. A warm shower will help your pores to open and make the electrolysis session easier.
- Drink lot of water before electrolysis session. It helps in easy removal of the unwanted hairs if the skin is hydrated as there is more water for electrolysis. The unwanted hairs just glide out in a fully hydrated skin during electrolysis.
- Shaving /Trimming prior to electrolysis -Shaving or trimming 4 to 5 days before electrolysis greatly increases efficacy because it ensures that only growing anagen hairs are treated. This may be particularly important in some areas, such as the arms, legs, thigh, and pubic area, where as many as 80% of hairs may be in telogen phase (resting phase - the matrix cells or germinative cells and papilla are in a dormant stage). It should be emphasized to clients that shaving has no effect on hair growth
- Here at Reyuva Hair Electrolysis we give a small dose of pain-killer half hour before electrolysis session. It helps to keep the patient pain free during the procedure.
