How Much Does Electrolysis Cost?
When compared to the expense of a lifetime of shaving, depilatories, or laser treatments, the permanence of electrolysis makes it a wise investment in yourself. Electrolysis costs depend on a lot of factors including: how much hair needs to be removed, the size of area being treated, and where you get your services performed.
Generally, a large city is going to have higher rates than a small town. Overall, electrolysis cost compares very favorably to other hair removal methods, including laser hair removal. When considering the long-term, recurring treatments required with other methods, electrolysis is a good investment.
How many treatments are required with electrolysis?
The number of treatments necessary varies with each client. The amount of hair, the methods used to hide hair before treatment, genetics, hormones, nutrition and health of the individual will all be factors that determine how many treatments or sessions will be required. For areas that have been waxed or tweezed, treatments will be more frequent than for areas that have been shaved.
Treatment sessions can range from 15 minutes to more than an hour depending on the area being treated. To acheive optimum results, it is important to follow the recommended treatment plan.
How often should I schedule electrolysis treatments?
Electrolysis clients might schedule 5 minutes for just a couple of annoying hairs on their chin or they might schedule hour or longer appointments to treat larger areas like heavy facial growth or legs.
The frequency and length of your appointments depends on the size of the area being cleared and the progress of your treatment. In general, treatments on a particular area are longest and most frequent at the beginning. Treatment length and frequency then tapers off as fewer and fewer hairs remain to be treated.
For best results, follow the electrologist's recommendations in scheduling appointments.
