Using an insulated medical probe, this super comfortable treatment releases a precise high frequency current directly underneath the skin, to permanently destroy the parts that feed hair growth. This is also a great for targeting ingrown hairs as electrolysis treats each strand individually, and can target specific hairs that are problematic on any part of the body. Depending on the area and the amount of hair you want to remove, you can choose from anything between a quick 15-minute to a one-hour session.
