Electrolysis is the process of removing hair from the face or body. This is done by inserting a needle into the base of each individual hair follicle, sending an electrical current through the needle to prevent regrowth and then using a tweezer to pluck each individual hair from the selected area.
Electrolysis hair removal is the only method that is approved by the FDA for permanent hair removal. At Susan Davina Electrolysis and Skincare in NYC, each person that comes in for electrolysis sits down with an electrolysist to review all medical history before the process begins.
The process for electrolysis hair removal may take anywhere from 15 minutes to one hour, depending on the area of the body that is undergoing hair removal. More than one session is required for electrolysis because complete hair removal is necessary to tackle during the growth cycle of the follicles. The electrolysists at Susan Davina will set up a series of scheduled treatments to finish the process.

Electrolysis NYC has some of the most successful outcomes of hair removal. Of course there are other options, like laser hair removal and removing the hair yourself, but neither is as effective as electrolysis. Both of these options are also temporary solutions, while electrolysis hair removal is permanent and safe.
