Welcome to Gravesend Electrolysis & Laser Clinic. Excessive hair can be a real source of embarrassment, luckily we now have treatments that can permanently stop this cycle, whether you are male or female laser or electrolysis will provide you with great results at affordable prices.   

I am a qualified electrologist) and laser therapist (training undertaken with Chromogenex), who has gained close to ten years of experience within the beauty industry. I love my job and find client satisfaction very rewarding. Knowledge is key in this industry, hence why I regularly attend seminars to ensure my techniques are constantly up to date.    

There are many reasons for excessive hair growth such as polycystic ovaries, hormonal imbalance, ethnicity, medication and the list goes on. The good news is there is a solution which will give you lifelong results. During your initial consultation I will give you information on the treatment that you will require and also a patch test

Electrolysis Hair Removal 
Electrolysis hair removal has been around for over a 100 years and is the most effective way of removing hair permanently. Contrary to popular belief this method is not slow, in fact up to 500 hairs can be removed within an hour! In addition, all hair types can be treated and electrolysis can also be used on any skin type, making it number one for permanent hair removal.  

A fine probe is inserted alongside the hair follicle and a current is applied to the root, this damages further hair growth and progressively stops hair coming back for good. Most clients describe the treatment as comfortable though if you’re sensitive numbing cream can be applied for comfort.There are 3 methods of electrolysis which are thermolysis, galvanic and blend. Blend is generally the most popular choice and the most effective.
 
Laser  Hair Removal
Laser hair removal works by emitting a controlled heat source via a beam (or beams) of light, which is selectively absorbed by the melanin (pigment). This then damages the root disabling its activity and long term results. 
 
Generally laser treatments are very quick and large areas can take as little as 30 minutes. Between 4 and 8 treatments are required as hair growth stages play a key role in follicle destruction. However, this is dependent on the individual some may require less others more.   

The treatment is gentle and non evasive-clients often describe the sensation between slight warmth or tingling and ice packs are used before during and after treatments for added comfort.
