Old technology, great result
There’s comfort in the tried and true. Even though we use the latest digital equipment from Carlton UK, electrolysis technology has been around since 1875 when Dr. Charles Michel, an ophthalmologist, invented the system to remove painful ingrown eyelashes. Electrolysis is a well proven permanent hair removal system.
Our electrolysis technicians are certified specialists within the already specialised Waxnlaser clinic teams. They’re all a little bit unusual because they seem to love the thrill of sliding out a hair and look forward to the next “good” session. Go figure? But you’re in good hands.
There’s quite a bit more information about electrolysis in the FAQ section below:

Electrolysis is also effective for hair that laser can’t treat such as light coloured hair or the remaining hair after completing a series of laser treatments. Treating the larger areas or quantities of hair in these cases requires longer electrolysis sessions over a longer period of time.
Electrolysis works best in smaller areas or where there’s a skin colour border, e.g. on the lip line or around nipples.
We are mostly treating the face – lip, chin, sides and eyebrows and stray hairs on the tummy line or “snail trail”. Larger areas such as bikini or under arms are better treated with the laser.
Your medical history will be taken to check you are medically suitable. (Bring along a list of any medication you are taking).
The treatment area and type of hair growing in the area will be checked (often by plucking out a hair to examine its follicle root). So it’s best if you stop shaving a day or so before and don’t wax or pluck for a while (sorry).
