Unwanted hair can appear in many undesirable places, one of them being the face. At Garden Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics in Midtown West, Manhattan, and New Hyde Park in Long Island, our licensed esthetician specializes in electrolysis hair removal. Electrolysis is a permanent hair removal solution that targets each individual hair follicle without the risk of burning the outside facial area with a laser. Electrolysis can be highly beneficial for women who suffer from PCOS hair growth on the face or for anyone who has unwanted facial hair.
Electrolysis is an FDA-approved process of individually removing hairs and is safe for all skin types and body areas. Our Apilus senior 3G device destroys hair growth at the root of the source with heat energy. Our licensed esthetician uses a very fine probe, inserting it into the hair follicle, destroying the follicle root, and removing the hair with tweezers. There are many factors that need to be considered at the initial consultation to determine how many sessions you will need and by the end of the consultation you will have your own individualized treatment plan.
Electrolysis is not known to be painful but can be uncomfortable for some people. Immediately after treatment you may experience slight redness or tenderness but it should disappear within the next couple of hours. There is very little risk of complication or serious skin irritation when electrolysis is performed by a licensed esthetician. Our esthetician will have you leaving feeling relaxed and confident in your own skin.
