Electrolysis is the FDA-approved treatment for permanently removing unwanted hair. Thousands of women suffering from PCOS have turned to this treatment when it comes to hair removal for the face. Because electrolysis offers permanent results, there’s no need to worry about getting maintenance treatments once you’ve completed your treatment plan. Furthermore, this treatment works well on all skin types and colors.

To perform this treatment, we insert a hair-sized probe into your hair follicle. The probe generates a minimal amount of electricity, which destroys your hair follicle. We will then use a pair of tweezers to glide individual hairs out of the follicle once treated.

What Are Your Options for Ingrown Hair Removal?

Do you have ingrown hairs that grow sideways or curl back? Men and women with curly and coarse hair often get ingrown hairs. These problem hairs can irritate the skin and produce raised bumps. Painful sores can also be caused by ingrown hair. If you want to get relief from ingrown hairs and eliminate this problem, you can get our innovative treatments for ingrown hair removal.

Pulling hairs from the root of the follicle IE (tweezing and waxing) makes the skin thicker and the hairs weaker that cannot break through the skin which is another cause of ingrown hairs.


By applying small electrical currents into the hair follicle, we can get rid of your problematic ingrown hairs and restore the healthy state of your skin. This treatment won’t irritate your skin, unlike manual hair removal methods such as waxing and shaving. And regardless of your skin and hair type, you can get this treatment to achieve visible results.

Laser Hair Removal

Another highly effective treatment for ingrown hair removal is laser therapy. Without the use of needles, this treatment can address the root cause of ingrown hairs. It uses targeted laser energy to destroy hair follicles that produce ingrown hair. Once the hair follicle is damaged, your ingrown hair won’t grow back the same way.
