People who’ve been waxing for some time, have found their skin to be more desensitized. Therefore, they may handle the electrolysis treatments much better.

Cataphoresis is an electrical treatment that is applied after electrolysis. It reduces the redness, cools down and disinfects your skin. In about 30 to 45 minutes after your treatment, you will see your skin return back to nearly normal. This post treatment is especially suitable for people with hypersensitive skin types.
The Cataphoresis process is not a required treatment and is often not offered by other electrologists. However, we always perform cataphoresis because we deeply care about the healing process that your skin needs after the electrolysis treatment.
Benefits of cataphoresis:
-reduction of inflammation, irritation, redness and edema
-acid produced at the electrode is germicidal
-tightens dilated pores
-restores the pH level following Blend Electrolysis by neutralizing the alkali

Is it OK to have an electrolysis done while I’m having my period?
It is OK to have an appointment during that time. However, it’s best to have the treatment done when you’re not having your period because you’re more sensitive. We have treated many women who haven’t had any issues but there are some who are easily irritated and don’t take electrolysis too well at that time. If you are more sensitive, then please make sure your appointment is not at the same time as your period.

Three modalities of electrolysis are:
Electolysis is the original method of hair removal when it was invented. Patient holds the electrode in the hand, current is applied and lye production us stimulated. Hairs are removed as a result. For electrolysis direct current is used, it takes more time and is more painful to compare to thermolysis.
Thermolysis is the faster version of electrolysis and does exactly the same with less time and pain. For thermolysis alternate current is used.
Blend = electrolysis + thermoysis. This method is also more time consuming and painful because electrolysis is ivolved.
