Electrolysis safely and permanently removes unwanted hair from the face and body. Electrolysis is effective on all skin and hair types — for both men and women.
Electrolysis is the only method of hair removal approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) for permanent hair removal. Countless physicians and medical articles confirm the success of electrolysis. No other hair removal process can claim permanent results — not even laser!
Electrolysis is Safe and Successful on all hair and skin types!
The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) statement on Electrolysis:
"Electrolysis is considered a permanent hair removal method,since it destroys the hair follicle. [Electrolysis] requires a series of appointments [to achieve permanent results]."
The FDA statement is clear - Electrolysis is permanent!
The FDA statement on Laser:
"Manufacturers may not claim that laser hair removal is either painless or permanent... several manufacturers had received FDA permission to claim 'permanent reduction'...".
The FDA statement is vague. But here is the central summation of their statement. Let's say a hair on your body grows and sheds in three months. If laser causes the hair to stay away for 6 months, that is considered "permanent hair reduction". Are you going to be happy with some hairs staying away longer? Or, do you want permanent results?
The term electrolysis is used to describe all methods of permanent hair removal. The electrolysis modality was the first method used to remove hair permanently back in 1875. The term electrolysis branded the process of permanent hair removal.

Before and After
Publicity photo of a 25-year-old film/stage actor. The body hair was sculpted, not just removed. Hairs were cleared at the lower pectorals. Hair in the center of the chest was feathered to look normal. The stomach hair was thinned and shaped into a normal centerline. Only electrolysis can produce this natural and undetectable appearance. Results were permanent. (Electrologist: Mike Bono, Santa Barbara.)
Before and After
22-year-old man wanted his chest hair thinned, but not totally removed. Only electrolysis is able to create a completely natural look by thinning and feathering. Laser cannot duplicate this natural appearance. Results were, of course, permanent.
