Have you been told that your hair type or skin tone is the reason you are not a candidate for hair removal treatment? You should speak to a professional electrologist, because not only is electrolysis safe and effective for all types of hair and skin tones, it's also the only treatment that removes hair permanently.
If you have dark skin, you have a higher likelihood of having this type of facial or body hair, but it can appear with any skin tone. Straight hair can also become ingrown.
Curly hair is more prone to become ingrown or cause raised bumps on your skin. Coarse hair gets stuck underneath the skin. Attempting to manage these problems by temporary methods such as depilatories, shaving, or tweezing can just make them worse, causing scarring or discolored areas. These methods are very hard on your skin.
Electrolysis safely and permanently removes ingrown hairs and the curly, coarse hairs that tend to damage your skin without creating issues that occur with tweezing and other temporary methods of hair removal.
No. Electrolysis has proven to be a safe and effective procedure for all skin tones and types of hair. Your AEA electrologist will explain the treatment process and answer any specific questions you have. Find an AEA electrologist in your area

Did you know?
The hair you see is not all the hair you have. Hair grows in cycles. That's why it takes more than one appointment to permanently clear an area.
Did you know?
Gently exfoliating your skin before your treatment opens up the follicles and lets the unwanted hair slide out more easily.
It's okay to shave between treatments, but never, ever tweeze!
Did you know?
If your electrologist can't see the hairs, they can't zap the hairs. Plucking, waxing, threading, or tweezing before your hair removal appointment reduces the number of hairs your electrologist can remove.
Clean skin releases unwanted hair more easily. Remove your makeup before your appointment, so the hair follicles are clean and accessible.
Ask your electrologist for aftercare advice. We can recommend the product that is right for your skin and treatment program.

Electrology is the only hair removal method recognized as permanent by the FDA.
For a more comfortable treatment, avoid caffeine for a few hours before your appointment.
