Electrolysis is the
FDA approved method for hair removal
Electrolysis is the only
proven method of PERMANENT hair removal.

Electrolysis was first developed in 1875 by an eye surgeon in an
attempt to find a method to relieve his patients from ingrown
eyelashes. He found the method (called electrolysis) not only
removed the offending hair; but, it didn't grow back. Thus was born
the science of electrolysis. A slight amount of electric current is
applied through a small probe eliminates the hair's source of
All other removal methods are temporary. Tweezing, waxing and
threading only rip the hair out and are replaced by another. Shaving
and depilatories remove the hair at the surface of the skin level;
but, the hair continues to march on out.
Laser machines are not capable of treating white, gray or light
blond hairs. They have insufficient pigment to attract laser light.
Also, red hair is in the red spectrum of light which the laser
utilizes. Therefore, laser light will not see red hairs. Laser
manufacturers are not given permission to claim "permanent" hair
removal by the Federal Government's Food & Drug Administration
(FDA). This means that although laser treatments will reduce the
number of body hairs, they will not result in permanent removal.
Electrolysis is the only answer for permanent hair removal. It is
the only removal method recognized as permanent by the American
Medical Association and the Federal Food and Drug Administration
