1. What is electrology?

Electrology is the science of permanent hair removal The treatment involves placing a sterile needle/probe into the hair follicle and transmitting a small amount of electrical energy into the follicle. The current destroys the hair's regenerative cells and the treated hair is then removed

2. Is electrology safe?

YES The amount of current generated is infinitely small Physicians often recommend electrology to patients concerned about superfluous hair

3. Is electrology the only method of permanent hair removal?

Yes. There are temporary routines such as shaving, waxing, depilatories, bleach, and tweezing. Keep in mind, however, since these methods ARE only temporary, they require frequent, time-consuming maintenance.

4. Is the treatment painful?

Certain areas of the body are more sensitive to treat than others; therefore, the sensations associated with this treatment can vary. The insertion of the needle can not be felt, but the current offers some minor discomfort.

5. Are the needles sterilized by the electrologist?

The AEA, in association with the Center for Disease Control, has developed national standards for sterilization of electrology instruments. As an additional safeguard, only disposable probes are used at Cassiel's.

6. What are the after-affects?

Electrology treatment may result in a slight reddening or minor swelling of the skin. These effects are temporary and depend on the length of treatment time, as well as the patient's skin type. The final result - beautiful, permanent hair-free skin.

7. How long does it take to achieve permanent results?

A continuing series of treatments over a period of time is necessary to achieve success. The rapidity with which one achieves permanent results varies with each individual depending on the area to be treated, skin and hair texture, density of the hair, and hormonal changes to the body.

8. What about electronic tweezers and non-needle devices?

These devices DO NOT remove hair permanently. According to the FDA, "...We have not seen any scientifically valid data which establishes differences between energized and plain tweezers..."

9. What causes abnormal hair growth?

Excess hair growth is often due to normal biological changes, such as puberty, pregnancy or menopause. Excess hair may be inherited, caused by certain medications (such as birth control pills) and stress.

10. Can hair be removed from anywhere on the body?

The most common areas are the hairline, eyebrows, upper lip, cheeks, chin, neck, shoulders, arms, underarms, breasts, panty line, buttocks and legs. On men it is the top ear, nose, back and beard.
11. Does electrology scar the skin?

No. Actually the texture of the skin will be left smoother upon completion of treatment.
12. Can hairs be removed from moles?

Only upon written approval by the clients dermatologist or physician. Consult electrologist.

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

Some regrowth, plus undergrowth will be experienced over a period of time. Deep course hairs cannot always be immediately eliminated, especially if they were previously waxed or tweezed. Breaking down the hair germ cells in a series of treatments may only partially destroy hair matrix. The treatment should be repeated until cells have been destroyed.

14. What is the normal growth cycle of hair?

Hair on various parts of the body have different growth cycles. After a hair grows and naturally sheds itself, it could be up to six months before regenerating.

15. What if I stop treatment before my scheduled program of appointments is complete?

Follow-up treatments are as important as the initial one, especially for hairs that require more than one treatment. The cauterization process to remove superfluous hair can fail if not followed to completion, and hairs will build back to their original strength after a period of months. If treatment is to be resumed at a later date, then the process will have to start from the beginning again.

16. What are the optimum results and benefits of electrology?

Men and women employ electrology not only as a solution to the problem of abnormal hair, but as a convenience that frees them forever from maintaining a hair-free look on the face and body. Improving their physical appearance and self-image is psychologically uplifting for clients, and they feel more attractive and socially accepted.
