Do electrologists follow appropriate infection prevention procedures?

The American Electrology has written standards for infection control following the most recent recommendations from the Center for Disease (CDC), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Association for Practitioner in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC). This studio utilizes an autoclave sterilizer for probe caps and tweezers, sterile single-use probes, and high-level disinfectant for surfaces. Current Electrolysis and Aesthetics prides itself in doing everything possible for infection prevention.

Will electrolysis hurt?

You will likely feel a momentary heat sensation or pinch. For most people, discomfort is minimal, but individual tolerances vary greatly. Keep in mind that some areas of the body are much less sensitive than others. If you find that you are sensitive during treatments, you can discuss sensation management with your electrologist. Numbing creams are available to purchase at Current Electrolysis and Aesthetics and can be applied before you arrive for your treatment.

Are all hairs eliminated in one treatment, or is regrowth to be expected?

Excessive hair growth, known as hirsutism, can range from fine vellus hairs to dark, coarse hair on the face and body. Deep, coarse hairs cannot always be eliminated with one treatment; thus breaking down the hair growth cells may require additional treatments. Based on a confidential and personal consultation, your electrologist will put together a treatment plan that will address your specific needs.

Can hairs be removed from moles?

Electrolysis can be performed on many moles where licensing regulations allow it. Your electrologist may require written approval from your doctor.
