Whenever a patient visits an office, in order to undergo electrolysis treatment, that patient can expect to feel the repeated touch of a probe, a probe that a trained professional must insert under the skin. The idea of experiencing that repeated touch has pushed a number of patients to investigate certain claims. They have investigated the claims and promises that have been linked to one touch electrolysis.
Now the makers of home electrolysis kits have made note of the growing interest in so called “one touch” hair removal devices. They realize that not every patient can afford to pay $45.00 for a single 30 minute session, in light of the need for repeated sessions. They encourage the public to believe that it is possible to enjoy permanent hair removal by applying a single touch to the designated piece of equipment in a kit.
At the same time, the makers of the in home kits have taken advantage of one important feature found in electrolysis treatments. Those kit makers have focused on the association between hair removal and the use of electricity. Those kit makers have introduced electrical tweezers. They have claimed that use of simple, electrically powered tweezers produces the same results as electrolysis.
Home hair removal, however, does not carry with it a guarantee of permanent removal. Moreover, the patient that has decided to take out hairs at home, using a pair of electrical tweezers has introduced new difficulties into the achievement of permanent hair removal. That tweezing can cause hair follicles to become bent or misshapen. As a result, insertion under the skin of a thin electrolysis needle does not always place that needle next to a hair root.
Furthermore, even the most sophisticated home electrolysis system can fail to produce the desired results, if placed in a pair or unskilled hands. In order to avoid the danger of side effects, electrolysis needs to be done properly. If a patient fails to read and follow the instructions that should come with an at home kit, then that patient could note a discoloration of the skin in the treated region. That patient could see red, blotched skin in the spot where he or she had hoped to see nothing more than hair free skin.
So, bearing in mind the danger of possible side effects, one might ask, “What is the best home electrolysis method?” Is it a kit that includes a particular chemical, one that the kit user should apply to the skin? Is it a technique that allows for creation at home of some powerful heat energy, energy with the ability to destroy growing hairs?
The truth is that neither of the suggested methods can deliver the results that are comparable to the results enjoyed by someone who has visited the office of a trained electrolysis practitioner. Suppose though that a home bound patient wants to say “goodbye forever” to unsightly hairs. How can he or she attain to that desired end? Such a patient should set aside time for reading about an alternative form of one touch electrolysis.
