The benefits of electrolysis for adults has been well documented, but not so much when it comes to teenagers. As teens start puberty and develop excessive body hair, it can be an uncomfortable, confusing and difficult time in their lives, often resulting in a drop in self-confidence. Besides the mental aspect of dealing with these changes, there are many social pressures and stress that coincide with a transforming body and hormonal changes. These can include family pressures in the home to teasing at school from other students.  To remedy the appearance of unwanted facial and body hair permanent hair removal is an option to consider.  

As teens are coming into their own, physical changes occur such as hair growth on the side of the face, chin or above the lip for girls, or overgrown eyebrows and facial hair for boys. The degree of hair growth, texture and color fluctuates from person to person, which can cause many teenagers to feel embarrassed to speak about it with friends or even their parents.  Excessive hair on the face or body can diminish self-confidence. Electrolysis is a safe and FDA approved method to eliminate this problem.

Choosing An Electrologist

When searching for an electrologist, it is important to select the right licensed permanent hair removal professional, someone who will take the time to talk about and understand a teens esthetic concerns. At Theresa’s Face and Body, we’re compassionate to the delicate needs of teenagers, and will explain the process during a consultation. Prior to the consult, we will have the client fill out an intake form. If the client is under 18, the parent must give permission for the teen to receive treatment and must be present during the electrolysis session. Also, during the consultation, we’ll discuss how permanent hair removal is performed and what the client may feel during a treatment. Post-treatment healing such as slight tenderness and redness will also be discussed. At Theresa’s Face and Body the electrologist will also take into account the changes in the teens skin such as excessive oiliness and acne, explain the importance of avoiding electrolysis where there is active lesions and advise the client not to pluck the hair.  

Putting Them At Ease

Lastly, to put the teen at ease, there will be complete aftercare instruction including what to avoid after treatment, and ointments that can be applied to the skin to reduce redness and inflammation.
