Electrolysis Solves Senior Facial Hair Issues

0 Comment

Seniors Facial Hair & Skin

Senior skin is very fragile. With the onset of age the skin tends to get thinner and the use medications such as blood thinners can cause the skin to bruise easily. Seniors also can encounter thinning of hair on the head, arms and legs but seniors facial hair can become thicker and more abundant.

To permanently eliminate annoying facial hair, electrolysis may be the best solution. Waxing can strip the skin of its outermost layer known as the stratum corneum. It may be too aggressive for some senior skin and can lead to bruising and tiny skin tears. Also, waxing and is only a temporary fix for an ongoing problem.

Electrolysis destroys hair by sending the current down to the dermal layer of the skin avoiding the fragile surface of the skin which prevents injury to this area. Also advantageous for many seniors, their skin is less of a moisture gradient than younger skin so treatment is often more comfortable.

How does electrolysis work?

Electrolysis removes excessive hair on any color or skin type. The treatment removes hair by destroying the hair root (papilla) and blood supply with electric current. The hair is then epilated from the follicle with a tweezer. The method Theresa’s Face and Body Cape Coral spa uses is heat thermolysis which is also known as high frequency. Average treatment time can run from 15 minutes to an hour. To achieve the best result, it is important to eradicate hair when it is in its active stage of growth known as the anagen phase. Adhering to the appointment schedule recommended by our electrologist is crucial to your success.

What areas can electrolysis treat?

Electrolysis can be done on most any area of the body. Treatment areas include the eyebrows, face, chin, neck, hairline, abdomen, thighs, back, bikini line, chest and legs.
