Procedure & Pricing


Procedure

Electrolysis is permanent, but not immediately permanent. It is not a quick fix and does take a series of treatments to achieve the permanent results you will be pleased with. The reason it is not immediate is because hair grows in cycles. Our hair, just like skin, is in a constant flux of shedding and replenishing. When you are born, you are born with a certain amount of hair germ cells and they don’t all appear at the same time. Hormones and some medications can play a part in providing the right environment for those hair germ cells to hatch out and become a potential problem.

It will take anywhere from 2-4 years to be hair free, depending upon the amount of growth you start with, what area is being treated, and if you have been waxing or tweezing. That doesn’t mean that it takes two years to kill one hair, by any means. It takes only a couple of treatments. As some hair sheds out, new hair is coming in. The new hair can then be treated and eliminated immediately.

Consider, if you will, weeds in your garden. You can go out after a spring rain and pull all the weeds that you see in your garden- does that mean that you won’t have to go out the rest of the summer and have more weeds to pull? There are weed seeds under the ground just waiting for their opportunity to grow and of course you will be out there in a few days or weeks killing them. Your hair growth is very similar in its growth cycle. Just like it is important to catch those weeds when they are just popping through the ground, it is also very important to catch the hair when it is just coming in, and it is the most vulnerable to the treatment. Therefore, I will customize a schedule to fit your personal needs so you get the full benefit of the permanent results of hair removal using electrolysis.

Electrolysis can be performed on almost any area of the body. Any hair…Anywhere. You may be wondering what electrolysis feels like – well, it feels like a sudden warmth. There is no poking sensation, just a quick burst of heat. As I move quickly from one hair to another, feeling the quick bursts, your synapse will tire and the intensity will lessen as you adjust to it. Most people are surprised at how well they tolerate the treatment. Usually they imagine it will be worse than it actually is. Some areas may be more sensitive than others and at certain times of the month you may be more sensitive or have less tolerance (like you do with the kids or your mate). There are products I can recommend that can help you feel more comfortable during your treatments if you feel that you need a little assistance some days. Some people feel that they are more sensitive and jumpy if they have had caffeine in coffee, tea or soda.

Pricing

We always do a free consultation and sample treatment when you first come in. You are under no obligation to have an appointment on the first day, but most people choose to keep going with the first treatment to the end of the scheduled time. We begin charging after the sample treatment is finished and you are asked if you would like to continue.

  • “Jawline down” Rate: $3.50 per minute, after a 30-minute/$105.00 minimum for bodywork.
  • “Backside”&”Between the legs” Rate: $4.50 per minute, after a 30-minute/$135.00 minimum.
  • Why do we charge more from the neck down? This is because of the position that the electrologist has to be in while working in this area, it can be very hard on her back, neck and arms. Also, please use consideration when having work done in the genital area and practice good hygiene immediately prior to your appointment. Using personal sanitary wipes is a great help and can be used just prior to your appointment and can be found in the bathroom at the office. Thank you for your consideration.

    No Call/No Show/Cancellation Policy

    I consider you and your time very valuable, therefore, when you have an appointment scheduled I will be on time to work on you so that you can get on with your day in a timely manner.

    24 hour notice for a cancellation is appreciated and a 2 hour notice is required if you need to cancel or reschedule.

    It is important to show up for your appointment and be on time so that you are not charged.

    • If you miss an appointment you will be charged for the time scheduled.

    • If you are late for your appointment you will be charged for the time scheduled

    Please don’t make me feel bad for charging you for your missed appointment and the charge that you incur. All of my clients are special to me but I do not play favorites and charge some and not others. When you miss your appointment it takes that time away from someone else so please be thoughtful and either show up or cowboy up.
