Electrolysis is the only permanent method of hair removal and has been practiced since 1875. Electrolysis is recognized by the Food and Drug Administration and approved by the American Medical Association. A practicing electrologist has completed training in an accredited school and has passed the state board.
Tweezing and waxing removes the hair shaft only, leaving the papilla (portion that nourishes the hair), which is capable of producing more hair.
Shaving and depilatories remove only surface hair. All of the above methods are on going, time-consuming and expensive. With electrolysis, there is an "end to the madness".
