Electrolysis for curly, wavy, and coarse hair

Electrolysis For Curly, Wavy or Coarse Hair

Have you been told that your hair type or skin tone is the reason you are not a candidate for hair removal treatment? You should speak to a professional electrologist, because not only is electrolysis safe and effective for all types of hair and skin tones, it's also the only treatment that removes hair permanently.

Who has curly, wavy or coarse hair?

If you have dark skin, you have a higher likelihood of having this type of facial or body hair, but it can appear with any skin tone. Straight hair can also become ingrown.

Why is curly or coarse hair a problem?

Curly hair is more prone to become ingrown or cause raised bumps on your skin. Coarse hair gets stuck underneath the skin. Attempting to manage these problems by temporary methods such as depilatories, shaving, or tweezing can just make them worse, causing scarring or discolored areas. These methods are very hard on your skin.

What does electrolysis do about it?

Electrolysis safely and permanently removes ingrown hairs and the curly, coarse hairs that tend to damage your skin without creating issues that occur with tweezing and other temporary methods of hair removal.

Since I have this type of hair, are there any special side effects I need to consider?

No. Electrolysis has proven to be a safe and effective procedure for all skin tones and types of hair. Your AEA electrologist will explain the treatment process and answer any specific questions you have. Find an AEA electrologist in your area
