A Reputable Beauty Clinic in Devon Providing Safe and Effective Hair Removal Treatments
From a simple wax treatment to using an electrolysis which is a state-of-the-art electrical system, I proficiently carry our all hair removal services. Please contact my clinic in Bideford, Devon, for details about any of the quality beauty treatments I provide.
A precise and effective solution to remove unwanted facial and body hair, Electrolysis is an electrical hair removal system that can be used on all hair types and colours and all skin types and colours. To achieve the desired result, the treatment needs to be repeatedly carried out on each individual hair. This is because the hair needs to be at the ANAGEN (alive) stage of growth to achieve optimum results for the destruction of the follicle.
Alongside your initial appointment, a full consultation needs to be carried out to assess your individual needs. For comfort, safety and hygiene, a disposable gold probe is used for each treatment. The treatment time for this is either 15 or 30 minutes.
Removing hair from the root, waxing is a semi-permanent treatment. Usually, the hair grows back after a period of 4-6 weeks, however, this can depend on the hair growth cycle. With regular waxing hair re-growth is usually softer and fine because the follicle becomes weaker, the hairs come away more easily resulting in a quicker and more comfortable treatment.
Here at the clinic, I use an aloe vera soft creme warm wax which is ideal for legs, arms, back and chest and a low-temperature creme wax for the more sensitive areas such as the face, eyebrows and bikini line.
The Three Stages of Hair Growth
For all hair removal treatments including IPL, Electrolysis or Waxing, to work effectively, it is paramount that each individual hair is caught at the ‘alive’ stage of the hair growth cycle. There are three stages of hair growth ANAGEN which is the ‘alive’ stage of growth, the hair is firmly attached to the dermal papilla (at the base of the hair follicle) providing it with the food and nourishment that it needs to grow. CATAGEN is the transition or ‘collapsing’ stage where the hair collapses away from its source of food and nourishment, and finally, the TELOGEN stage where the hair is dying and disconnected completely from the dermal papilla and will eventually fall out naturally
