Best rated hair removal services Beverly Hills, CA with BadBetty Electrolysis: Electrolysis refers to the process of permanent hair removal using a direct current (galvanic), alternating current (thermolysis/short wave), or both. A hair-sized probe is inserted into each hair follicle, administering enough current to permanently kill the stem cells and other growth factors in each follicle. This differs from laser, which utilizes radiofrequency to emit a light that find, heats, and damages the hair follicle. An important difference here is that laser does not target individual hair follicles. Instead, the intensity of the laser is distributed throughout a given region of the body. With laser, some hairs will be permanently disabled, and others will be weakened enough to delay growth for a period of time. This is why laser is referred to as permanent hair reduction, while electrolysis is permanent hair removal. Find extra details at Bad Betty Electrolysis.
What should you do if you have low pain tolerance, or you’re receiving electrolysis treatment on a sensitive area? In addition to maintaining a healthy mind and body (adequate rest, regular exercise, a healthy balanced diet, and adequate hydration) here are a few methods of pain management commonly used: The mind is a powerful pain management tool. Anxiety and stress before treatment means that your nervous system is already on alert and prepared to feel each and every insertion! Counteract this by utilizing deep, focused breathing techniques-before and during your appointment. Close your eyes and visualize yourself inhaling and exhaling each breath, redirecting your focus from the sensation of electrolysis to your breathing.

Redness and swelling is absolutely normal post-treatment. Depending on the treatment modality and your body chemistry, the inflammation may last 1-4 days post treatment (especially after longer, more aggressive treatment sessions). Some tiny pinpoint scabbing is also normal and will certainly go away without long-term or permanent damage. It is important to keep your post-treatment area clean and undisturbed. In addition to products like witch hazel, tea tree oil, and aloe vera gel, we recommend (and sometimes distribute) Manuka Honey or medical grade honey to clients after treatment. This is an excellent antibacterial, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory gift from our dearest bee friends. The sticky texture also reminds you to KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF THE TREATED AREA!
