Electrolysis & High Frequency (Skin Tag, Facial Vessels & Milia Removal)
Electrolysis has been around since the 1800′s and is the only proven method of permanent hair removal. Electrolysis works through the use of small amounts of electrical current being released into the hair follicle and destroying the growing cells nourishing the hair. The hair is released and removed during the treatment. Electrolysis requires a series of consistently planned treatments with the number of sessions depending on a number of factors including the area being treated and the use of temporary methods in the past. All areas and skin types can be treated by electrolysis and is most frequently used to treat eyebrows, upper lip and chin. Skön Laser Clinic uses the latest computerized technology along with surgical microscopes for detailed skin analysis. Electrolysis is used in combination with laser hair removal for those clients lacking the dark pigmentation required for laser including blonde and white hair.
Sterile, disposable stainless steel filaments are used and a new filament will be opened during each treatment. Electrolysis is proven safe during pregnancy.
High frequency can be used for small facial vessels, skin tag as well as milia removal. Price varies based on time.
