Facial hair growth is an embarrassing problem for many women. It can start at any age for many different reasons. It can begin at puberty, during pregnancy or at the onset of the menopause simply because of the hormone changes in the body. It can be brought on by the use of certain medications or it may be an inherited problem.
Whatever the reason, it can cause a lot of distress.
Electrolysis is an effective, permanent method of hair removal for facial hair. It is still the only permanent solution for blonde and white hairs. It is also the best solution for removal of hair on the breasts, particularly around the nipples.
A very fine needle is inserted into the hair follicle (which is a tube-like opening). A slight sting will be felt as the hair root is cauterised and the hair is then removed with tweezers. A course of treatments will be suggested according to the strength and extent of the hair growth problem.
