What are the 3 types of electrolysis?
There are three modalities of electrolysis treatment: galvanic, short wave diathermy and blend. They all have comparative benefits and disadvantages and should be used in accordance with individual clients’ needs and situations. All three modalities require moisture for effective treatment.
Does diathermy remove hair permanently?
Not many people realise that Diathermy or Electrolysis (as it’s traditionally known) is actually the only hair removal system to be granted the title ‘permanent’ by the FDA. That’s because the follicle itself is completely removed and can’t regenerate.
What is thermolysis hair removal?
Thermolysis is heat-based electrolysis, also known as shortwave method. A thermolyic epilator destroys the hair follicle by injecting each follicle with high frequency radio energy. This energy produces localized heat and weakens cells and surrounding tissues to prevent future hair growth.
What is galvanic epilation?
Galvanic epilation is the permanent removal of unwanted hair using a Galvanic current. This current produces a chemical, which is a result of water, salts and a low current mixing at root of the hair.
Is diathermy the same as electrolysis?
Diathermy, also known as the thermolysis method or advanced electrolysis, this works by using an Alternating Current (AC) of electricity. The electricity causes the water molecules in the skin around the needle to vibrate, which creates heat. If enough heat is produced, it can damage the cells that it is targeting.
Which method of electrolysis is best?
Conclusion. In conclusion, of the three methods of electrolysis, it would appear that thermolysis is the quickest, with immediate results, but also the most limited i.e. suitable only for fine, vellus hair. The blend method offers improved results on thermolysis, although taking slightly longer.
How does shortwave diathermy work?
“Shortwave diathermy uses high-frequency electromagnetic energy to generate heat. It may be applied in pulsed or continuous energy waves. It has been used to treat pain from kidney stones, and pelvic inflammatory disease. It’s commonly used for conditions that cause pain and muscle spasms.”
Is Blend or thermolysis better?
Blend electrolysis hair removal kills the follicle by a chemical reaction. Blend electrolysis is more effective than thermolysis on curly hairs. This because the caustic lye is fluid and can glide into the curve.
What are epilation treatments?
What is epilation? Epilation is the term used to describe removal of body hair, including the hair root, by means of mechanical device, tweezer, or wax. It is the most effective method for temporarily removing hair.
What is diathermy in beauty?
Diathermy is a safe and effective cosmetic treatment used to treat skin problems such as skin tags, spider veins, dilated and broken capillaries, red spots, and milia, sebaceous hyperplasia. Diathermy gives blemish free, smooth skin, instantaneously. It is a bloodless procedure and does not require any stitches.
What is short wave diathermy?
Shortwave diathermy uses high-frequency electromagnetic energy to generate heat. It may be applied in pulsed or continuous energy waves. It has been used to treat pain from kidney stones, and pelvic inflammatory disease. It’s commonly used for conditions that cause pain and muscle spasms such as: sprains.
