Root hair removal is an aesthetic service, performed to permanently remove unwanted hair from various parts of the interested part’s body. Root hair removal via electrolysis is amongst the common, most reliable methods of hair removal. The method is permanent and effective. Its application is recommended for smaller areas, particularly upon the face, but also the body in general.
It is ideal for white or blonde hairs, which other hair removal methods are unable to completely destroy.
This method is slightly painful, as it involves the use of a needle, which is inserted into the hair follicle to destroy the hair’s regenerative cells through the application of an electric current.
One disadvantage of root hair removal is that it is a time-consuming method, and as such is mostly used when removing unwanted hair from a patient’s face. Another disadvantage is the danger of inflicting burns upon the patient if the surgeon using the root hair removal equipment handles the needle incorrectly. As such, it is vital for an aesthetic surgeon performing root hair removal via electrolysis to be both experienced and capable.
