Treatment used for the permanent reduction of hair growth in areas such as upper lip, chin, neck and sides of face. Electrolysis is an alternative to laser hair removal for areas where hair growth is minimal but perhaps coarse and noticeable. See if this treatment is suitable for you.

Electrolysis Hair Removal

Electrolysis is a safe, effective, progressively permanent method of removing unwanted hair. It is safe for all skin types and works on all hair colours.

How does Electrolysis work?

A tiny probe (about the size of an eyelash) is inserted into the hair follicle where a short burst of energy is targeted at the root of the hair. This burst of energy prevents nutrients feeding the follicle and the new hair growth becomes weaker and finer.


After a course of treatments the follicle is no longer able to produce new hairs. Each hair follicle requires a number of treatments because each follicle has its own growing cycle. Electrolysis works by weakening the hair follicle and eventually destroying its ability to produce hairs.

Facial thread vein removal with electrolysis

Facial veins are broken capillaries and are commonly referred to as thread veins or spider veins.

They are nothing to worry about, but they can age the appearance of the skin and make it look ruddy and unhealthy.

Some of the common causes of facial thread veins are:

  • Too much sun or wind exposure
  • Pregnancy
  • Rosacea
  • Trauma to the skin
  • Excessive alcohol

They are easy to treat with electrosurgery, which works by gently cauterising the vessel, causing it to dry up and magically disappear.
