Electrolysis is the removal of unwanted hair in primarily very small areas that are difficult to remove by other recognised methods.
In the Henley Clinic we use the galvanic method of Electrolysis. This method works by using a direct current of electricity. When the needle is inserted, the electricity travelling down the needle causes the salt and water in the skin around the probe to be chemically altered. Salt, water and electricity combine to produce a small amount of sodium hydroxide. The sodium hydroxide works to damage the cells that cause hair growth.
Prior to treatment an anaesthetic cream can be applied although there is minimal pain in this process. A wire filament is the inserted into the hair follicle, which is completely painless, once the filament is inserted into the hair follicle the skin specialist delivers a minute electric current through the filament to the hair follicle, the latter being the aspect that may cause a slight stinging sensation/pain.
Treatment sessions generally are short, around 15-30 minutes and the optimum treatment areas are small areas of whitish hair around the face.
To obtain optimal laser hair removal a course of treatments are generally required.
Note: Actual treatment results will be variable from patient to patient
“I had my first visit to the Henley Clinic about 2 years ago, I am extremely happy with my treatments of CACI and Hydradermie. I also had Ultherapy under eye treatment about 6 months ago to eliminate those unsightly under eye lines and thrilled with the results. The specialist Sarah who treated me was lovely and explained the procedure in depth and what I could expect.The therapists and reception ladies are very friendly, professional and very helpful. I wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else.” Samantha *
