Which Hair Removal Method is best for me?
Electrolysis has been around for over 100 years and is still the only treatment legally permitted to be called permanent hair removal: any other method is classed as hair reduction.
It is perfectly safe for any area of the face or body, any skin colour or type, any hair colour or type. The treatment targets each hair individually and is perfect for thick or long hairs (‘terminal hair growth’), which need this type of attention to eradicate permanently. Unlike IPL or Laser, there is no possibility of stimulating growth in the treatment area (Paradoxical Hypertrichosis) https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/20100274/
Vellus hair growth (often called ‘peach fuzz’) consists of fine downy hairs that cover the skin on both the face and body. For most of us it is barely noticeable, but some people have a larger number or longer hairs that make them feel self-conscious. This excessive growth would take a long time to eradicate with electrolysis due to the sheer number of hairs, which can be costly and frustrating.
The DMK Alkaline Wash can permanently reduce these very shallowly-rooted hairs: each treatment permanently damages a small percentage of growth every time it is performed. The reduction is evenly distributed across the treatment area, causing no skin damage and gradually thinning out the growth. Treatments are carried out as often as required (usually 4-8 weeks apart depending on the speed of regrowth) and stop once the desired result is achieved. YOU decide when sufficient reduction has been achieved – results are permanent. The treatment requires a consultation and patch test as for electrolysis.
