FAQs

How does electrolysis work?

A tiny probe is inserted into each hair follicle.  The Electrologist then releases a small amount of heat thru different settings of their machine.  The heat releases the hair and root from the follicle.

How small is the probe?

The probe range in diameter from .005” to .002”.  The Electrologist matches the probe size to the same diameter of the hair.

How often do I have to come in for treatments?

Since there must be hair for the Electrologist to work with, you will come in with the frequency that your body dictates.  Typically clients will come in at the same frequency that they wax, shave or tweeze.  Most people begin with weekly appointments. 

What are the common areas worked on?

Electrolysis is commonly chosen by women and teenage girls for their face, particularly upper lip, chin and eyebrows. Men and teenage boys choose electrolysis for the ears, beard at the tie-neck line and unibrows..

What is the difference between electrolysis and laser?

Laser works by finding the pigmentation of hair  beneath the skin.  There is an apparatus that is placed on the area you want worked on by the Laser Technician.  With Electrolysis, the Electrologist will insert a needle into the hair follicle; one by one.  The FDA recognizes laser as hair reduction . While  Electrolysis is considered permanent hair removal.

What is your cancellation policy?

Outside of emergencies and being sick, we ask that our clients kindly give us a day's notice so that we can offer your slotted time to another client who is on the wait list. Less than a day's notice may result in being charged your reserved appointment time.

Testimonials

I am thrilled with the results of eletrolysis by Lourdes.  The thought of not having to pluck, tweeze or wax again is worth it !!!  I was paying $15.00 every two-three weeks for waxing - NO MORE!!  Lourdes is extremely knowledgeble, professional and easy to talk to.  Walking into her establishment you can tell she takes pride with her work and making sure everyone feels comforatable.  I highly recommend electrolysis, especailly by Lourdes. Chrissy C. Mundelien

My daughter has been getting electrolysis since spring and at first she was afraid.  Ever since she met Lourdes and has been attending her appointments she has no fear.  Thanks to the professionalism, enthusiasm, eagerness to explain every step by step, oh and let's not forget her sense of humor helps.  My daughter has seen a big improvement of hair growth diminishing :-)  and is always looking forward to her appointments!!  Keep up the great work :-) Lorena S. Woodale

I am a client of Lourdes'. I went for the free consultation and I was hooked immediately. Lourdes takes the time to explain electrolysis and eased my mind. She also does every appointment with extreme care and puts the patient first. My electrolysis appointment with Lourdes is one appointment I never miss. I noticed great results within a month and the results just get better and better.Type your paragraph here.  Terry M. Mundelien
