The Disadvantages of Electrolysis - Know What The Risks Are

April 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 188

There have been a lot of procedures for getting rid of unwanted hair, a lot of alternatives to choose from, for a number, Electrolysis is their choice.

Electrolysis is a procedure performed with the use of fine needles inserted to hair sites for the delivery of electric currents to destroy individual hair roots, making strands fall out of their places and retarding hair growth. There are two types of electric current used in the procedure. One is thermolysis, and the other is galvanic. Galvanic electrolysis involves the emission of currents out of the device through the client, and back to the device, whereas in thermolysis, currents do not flow through the body.

Before you undergo any procedure, be sure to not only focus on the good results and other stuff, but look into the bad outcomes and factors as well --- weigh the pro's and con's of what you'll undergo, and see if Electrolysis is really for you. Well, I suppose you had much of the advantages already. It's time you check out these disadvantages:

First disadvantage would be the cost of the procedure. How much will you be paying for an electrolysis session? How much will you be spending to get hair-free at last? Electrolysis, since it's a hit procedure, is a very expensive hair removal treatment. The one performing it requires much skills and precision to target the minute spots and release electrical charges in them. One hour of electrolysis session would cost you forty-five dollars (45$) --- this is just the minimum expense cause you can go higher than $45. The slower the procedure runs, the higher the bills you pay. If you get a well-experienced technician for it, then an hour session would only run for half an hour (but you get to pay a higher charge still because of his expertise). Nowadays, we have available electrolysis kits you can readily purchase in stores which allows you to perform the procedure yourself at home, at your convenience, both in time and expenses. But be very careful since it needs skill to do it or you might end up with scars.

Second disadvantage, it's painful. The superficial layers of our skin are designed to be sensitive enough to send signals to our brain and process sensations such as pain. With the numerous nerve endings scattered around the dermal layers, it couldn't be avoided that the client could experience pain during the procedure.

Third disadvantage, susceptibility to infection. Needles are involved in the procedure, therefore penetration happens. With the break in the continuity of the skin, the body is now creating a portal for microorganisms to pass through causing infection.

Fourth disadvantage would be the possibilities of scarring. Since the procedure involves the insertion of needles to the dermal layers for electric currents to be discharged, chances are it could cause a scar. Most needles used in the procedure are pointed ones. If it's pointed, then it penetrates the skin. If it gets in, it scars. It would be embarrassing if these scars would be found on your lip line or on any spot on your face --- you can't hide them forever with makeup, you know! So be sure that the needle your technician uses for your treatment is the rounded type. If it's rounded, it can't penetrate the skin, then it can't cause any scarring --- the possibility of having scars could be worse for those people having keloid states!

Whatever procedure you get involved with, talk it out with your doctor and be sure that you are well-informed before you get yourself to sign any consent.
