Hair Removal at Home: Electrolysis Pen

September 25, 2010 by Clark 

For many years, there were only a few options of hair removal for women who wanted to get rid of unsightly facial hair, or even hair at the bikini line and armpits. The most common mode for bikini line, armpits and legs is to shave those areas with a razor. The problem with this method is that it does not remove the hair down to the follicle; it only removes the top layer of the hair, often stimulating growth and thickness of hair in those areas. Shaving is not a good method for the facial area on women for this reason, even though there are some razor tools made especially for hair removal around the eyebrows and upper lip areas.

Another method of hair removal in the facial area for women is waxing, which has many different methods of doing so, such as sugar waxing or bees waxing, but all methods are painful. In addition, since the hair follicles do not produce hair growth at the same times, the hairs removed one week seemingly grow back the next week when a new wave of hair growth from other follicles grows in. Waxing is good because it pulls out the entire hair and does cause the hair growth to slow in that area over time, but it is still painful and a multi-use method, meaning it is a life-long process.

Permanent Hair Removal

The E-pen electrolysis is a new method of permanent hair removal that can be done by the consumer at home rather than having to have a professional do the treatments. Electrolysis pens permanently remove the hairs by killing the hair follicle that produces the hairs. The electrolysis pen is less painful that the professional electrolysis methods since there is not a needle used in the process and the person does not have to go back into the professional multiple times to get complete hair removal. Since hair growth from the different follicles sometimes takes eight to ten weeks to show, that is a long time to have to wait between appointments while dealing with unsightly hair growth. In addition, the electrolysis pen can be used at home in the more private regions of the body, such as the bikini line, allowing the individual to remove the hair at home rather than being exposed to another person to do the removal.

The electrolysis pen also does not leave the scarring that can sometimes occur with the traditional methods using the needle, which is more common on women who have a darker complexion. Instead of using a needle, electrolysis pens use a conductive gel that helps to evenly distribute the electricity into the hair follicles. This gel is placed on cotton, gel pads and body pads, depending on the area of the body being treated, and use water and salt solution that kills the hair root and papilla by changing to sodium hydroxide.
