During FDA-approved electrolysis hair-removal treatments, licensed professionals administer small electrical currents designed to permanently remove hair without damaging the surrounding skin. As hair growth is a process that occurs in cycles, and electrolysis targets hair when it’s in the active-growth cycle, some patients may need additional sessions for the best results. Some people have likened the sensation to a stinging or pricking feeling.

Hair Growth: It’s Just a Phase

Hair growth patterns change across our bodies, throughout our lives, and from species to species. Check out Groupon’s guide to explore the science behind the strands.

Hair varies in thickness and length across our body, from the head’s massive jungle to the knuckles’ tiny brambles. But regardless of where it is, each strand of hair cycles through three phases: anagen, also known as the active growth phase; catagen, or transitional phase; and telogen, or resting phase. During the growth phase, a new hair shaft sprouts from a follicle as its cells rapidly divide and grow upward, forming tightly packed bundles rich with keratin protein. Next, the transition phase kicks in for about two to three weeks, during which growth stops and the outer root sheath shrinks, anchoring the hair to the follicle as it enters the final phase. At that point, the follicle lies dormant until the hair is shed and the cycle begins again.

Not all hair grows at the same rate. On the scalp, hair grows about 6 inches per year, with each strand spending about two to six years in the active phase. Meanwhile, hair on the arms, legs, eyelids, and eyebrows actively grows for a much shorter period—only about 30–45 days—and spends more time in the resting phase, which is why waxing these areas helps curb unwanted hair growth. Humans need removal methods such as waxing because we don’t shed our hair all at once like other mammals; our hair-growth cycles are random and staggered, whereas other animals’ cycles are mostly synchronized.

Customer Reviews

Attentive, experienced and kind. Highly recommended.
Serpil K. · September 21, 2016
Kelly was friendly and professional. Explained in detail the procedure and best type of methods.

Kelly was educational, informative and very professional. Great first impression and I would highly recommend her service. She worked on my chin area and upper lip area with the heat modality which was less painful than the current modality.
