Electrolysis is a permanent hair reduction method, whereby heat is delivered via a fine needle through the skin to the follicles where hair is produced.

Electrolysis destroys the blood supply surrounding the follicles, which over a period of treatments stops the production of hair.

It is a preferred method of permanent facial hair reduction to laser, as it suitable for treating all colours of hair and there are no side effects of pigmentation being produced post treatment.

We use professional, disposable needles.

More FAQs

Why have an Electrolysis procedure?

Electrolysis is an excellent method of permanent hair reduction for smaller areas such as:

  • Stubborn facial hairs
  • Fine very facial fair hairs
  • Alternative to laser for those who chose to expose their face to the sun.

Does Electrolysis hurt?

Generally this procedure does not hurt. However each individual has a varied pain threshold to the fine needle being inserted into hair follicle. Care is taken to make it as comfortable as possible.

How many Electrolysis treatments do I need?

The number of treatments required, varies on location of the body, hair density and hormonal implications.
We suggest one treatment, per week for two to four months, followed by a gradual reduction of treatments over a further three months or until the hair growth stops.

How quickly will I see the results?

The results are achieved progressively over the course of the treatments.

How long will the results last?

The results are progressive after each session.
Your practitioner will guide you through a treatment program.

What our customers say

Emporium has been my facial clinic for the past 15 years, I have tried many of their facial options. I recently had the Nlite Rejuvenation laser facial...

Amazing in reducing my open pores and wrinkles.

All the girls are lovely and the working environment is friendly.

What our customers say

I visited the clinic last week for a deep cleanse facial and milia removal. The milia was rather large and had unfortunately become irritated, inflamed and sore. Angela was fantastic and I couldn't believe how quickly she removed it. She made sure there was as little discomfort as possible, and talked me through everything she was doing. My skin felt wonderful after the facial also! 

I really appreciated Angela giving me advice prior to my appointment, and checking up on how my skin was healing after. 

Great personable service that I fully recommend.
