The Gentle Way To Permanent Hair Removal

For over 130 years, electrolysis has been and remains the only recognised 100% permanent hair removal method. This technique permanently destroys germinative cells responsible for hair growth, thanks to the insertion of a fine probe in the hair follicle and the application of a current adjusted to the type of hair and the treated area. The creators of Apilus® were convinced that by integrating modern technology, electrolysis could become a much more effective and comfortable technique. They designed a computer-assisted system that concentrates and controls the extent of the destruction in the hair follicle, targeting only the germinative cells and thus preventing new hair growth. This signaled the onset of a new era in the field of electrolysis.

Apilus offers advanced technology with proven effectiveness in the field of hair removal and have demonstrated time and again that Apilus delivers more effective and more comfortable treatments as well as much more rapid permanent results than any other hair removal technique.

Thanks to its powerful circuits entirely controlled by computer, Apilus offers professional electrologists pinpoint precision and perfect settings to guarantee the results you seek. You can finally say goodbye to unwanted hair, whether on the face, or any other part of the body.

Apilus is also equipped with a unique 'tolerance test', which allows the unit to be adjusted and adapted to your level of sensitivity to the current. Apilus high-precision circuitry uses application pulses as short as one hundredth, or even one thousandth of a second, which assures incomparable comfort.

Some electrolysis systems are simply better than others. In the same fashion, Apilus Centres stand out for their professionalism and their desire to offer their clients the best there is in permanent hair removal. In these electrolsis and aesthetics salons, the staff has received in-depth training on Apilus technology. You can therefore undergo treatments in full confidence, knowing you are in the hands of a certified technician using ultramodern technology and equipment as well as sterilized disposable probes.

An Apilus electrologist is someone who believes quality and security are key elements of her practice and who puts your well-being and satisfaction first. Don't hesitate to ask for detailed explanations during your first consultation and throughout your treatment.


Treatment Preparation

Not much preparation is required prior to treatment, but the most important thing to consider is the length of the hair in the area to be treated. Ideally there will be 2-4mm of hair visible. A little more than this will be ok, but please remember that if the hair is too long and dense it will start to make the visibility of individual hairs more difficult, and this could hamper progress. Similarly a little less visible growth will be workable, however if it is too short it may be difficult to grip easily with tweezers and also more difficult to precisely determine the direction of growth, and this again could hamper efficient treatment. Obviously when treating more visible areas, particularly of the face, too much visible growth will be undesirable, but please consider the latter point regarding hair that is too short.

Waxing and Tweezing
As soon as you decide you wish to undergo treatment with electrolysis you must stop waxing or tweezing the hairs in this region. This is because only hairs that are visible can be treated, and hairs that are waxed or tweezed my take several weeks to re-grow, which will only prolong treatment. Apart from this, as mentioned elsewhere, waxing and tweezing can have the unfortunate consequence of causing curved follicles which can result in treatment taking slightly longer.

Shaving and Cutting With Scissors
As neither of these methods of hair removal are detrimental to hair growth or treatment you can continue with either of these methods, or start following termination of waxing or tweezing.

There are no problems associated with bleaching hair as regards electrolysis, although it would be better to avoid bleaching for 48 hrs before treatment to avoid any possibility of over-sensitising the area, but please note the page on aftercare.

3 or 4 Days Prior to Treatment
You need to consider the rate of hair-growth in the area. It is important to remember that ideally there will be about 2-4mm of hair growth in the area to be treated so it would be worth considering if a final shave or cut of the hair would be appropriate at this stage. As a general rule, if it is a body area to be treated, now would be the time to shave for the last time prior to treatment, however if it is a facial area to be treated you may wish to leave the final cut/shave until 48 hours prior to treatment.


Day Of Appointment -

If you wish to wear make-up in the area to be treated on the day of treatment then that will be fine. However, please remember that make-up will be removed from the area whilst cleansing immediately prior to treatment, so it may be better to avoid wearing it in the first place, or at least minimise it.

Pain Relief
Most clients find they require no pain relief at all, however if you are anxious about the discomfort, then you can take ibuprofen or paracetamol an hour before your appointment. Whilst this won't make much difference, it will help with relaxation, and take some of the anxiety away.

If further help is required, EMLA is available on prescription from your GP, or alternatively can be purchased over the counter from your local pharmacy, although you may need to speak to the pharmacist directly. This is a topical local anaesthetic cream containing Lidocaine and Prilocaine, and it needs to be generously applied to the treatment area an hour before your appointment, and covered with an occlusive dressing. The dressings are again available from you pharmacist, or alternatively many people cover the cream with cling film and then secure that with microporous tape. You will need to then remove the dressing and cream on arrival for your appointment.


Electrolysis Aftercare

Huge importance is placed in every client's welfare, which begins with the carefully chosen Mundo Professional range of Medical grade infection control products, effective against fungi, viruses, spores and bacteria including MRSA, E-Coli, TB, Salmonella, HIV/HBV and C-Dif. During treatment surgical gloves are worn, and high quality gold or insulated Ballet probes. The treatment is followed by Cataphoresis. This is an electrical treatment which is soothing and disinfecting and particularly suitable for reactive and hypersensitive skins after an electroepilation treatment. The effects of Cataphoresis are:

• reduction of inflammation, irritation, redness and oedema
• acid produced at the electrode is germicidal
• tightens dilated pores
• restores the pH level following Blend Electrolysis by neutralizing the alkali

Cataphoresis is followed by the application of an antiseptic such as Witch Hazel gel or Tea Tree lotion.

All this is designed to provide you with the most comfortable treatment possible, protect you from infection and promote the swift healing of your skin following electrolysis.

A good programme of hygienic home-care will avoid spots or minor infections occurring following electrolysis. It is important for you to remember to take extra care of the treated area to give the skin every opportunity to heal and return to normal, especially within the first 48 hours. Within the first 24 hours of electrolysis, the treated area should be distubed as little as possible, although further applications of the recommended antiseptic may be re-applied. In any case, within the first 48 hours of electrolysis, it is very important that further applications of the recommended antiseptic are made at least twice daily, morning and night, preferably using a cotton wool pad, and you should always wash your hands thoroughly before and after touching the treated area.

Use of Make-Up
The use of make-up post epilation is not recommended as it is likely that bacteria is carried in the make-up and will cause infection. However it is important to be practical, and it is understood that clients may see it as a necessity to wear make-up. Therefore a tinted aftercare lotion is available for the purpose. It is important to remember that any make-up used must be removed thoroughly but gently and carefully, taking care to not remove any crusts that may have formed as part of the natural healing process, using an un-perfumed cleanser suitable for sensitive skins. This should be followed by a further application of antiseptic lotion or gel.

If you normally use, or wish to use a bleach to lighten hair in the area in between treatments, then you must not use it for at least 48 hours following electrolysis.

Regrowth and Untreated Hair
Once a course of electrolysis has commenced, should you wish or need to remove hair from the treatment area in between appointments, the hair may be cut with scissors or razor, but must not be tweezed or waxed, and neither should a cream depilatory be used in the area. However, please remember that you will need to leave enough hair visible to be able to grip comfortably with a pair of tweezers, usually 1-2 mm of growth is sufficient, for your appointments. It is possible to work with less, however it may impair progress.

General Skincare
Rich creams and moisturisers should be avoided for the first 48 hours after electrolysis. After this time, gently massaging the area will assist healing. Any rashes or minor infections in the area should be treated in the same way as previously described. Cortisone/steroid creams should not be used. It is also advised to avoid exposure to the harmful rays of direct sunlight, and where possible, a good sunscreen should be used.
