Qualifying in Electrolysis hair removal at the Sterex International Academy was a wonderful opportunity to not only specialise in new skills but also learn more about Electrolysis’s long-established proven record of success.
I was fascinated to discover that the Sterex Electrolysis treatment for permanent hair removal has been around for almost 140 years! In fact, it was first used in 1875 for the treatment of ingrowing eyelashes by Dr Charles E Michel in the USA.
If we take a quick jump forward to 1982, Sterex changed the way permanent hair removal was carried out worldwide, by inventing the single use sterile disposable probe. This is a tiny, very thin rod which the Electrolysis machine uses. The single-use nature of it ensures those who have Electrolysis treatment throughout the world are protected.
I feel so happy and proud to have qualified now in Electrolysis hair removal, to have trained at the renowned Sterex International Academy makes me feel so lucky as it is such a professional and trusted International brand.
Why choose Electrolysis?
Why would you choose Electrolysis over laser hair removal? Laser hair removal works by targeting the melanin present in the hair follicle, so if the hair does not have pigment or is in an area that cannot be targeted by the laser, the good news is we can treat any hairs using the Electrolysis method!
Your first steps to hair free skin
Your first step would be to book in for your consultation and patch test, where we would carry out a detailed medical history to ensure your safety and suitability for the treatment.
If you are suitable for treatment, I would recommend that you stay really hydrated with lots of water – a hydrated follicle is much easier to treat! I would also advise that you refrain from plucking hairs, waxing or threading, instead you can cut the hairs closely to the skin (being very careful) as this will not increase the growth (whereas waxing and plucking can make the hair growth stronger). We do need the hairs to present in the follicle, just like laser hair removal.
After care tips
After your treatment, make sure you don’t scratch or touch the area, and avoid perfumed products or soap. I would also recommend that you avoid swimming, hot baths/ showers and sunbathing, and don’t apply any make up to the area for 24-48 hours.
Ensure you’re in safe hands
Always be careful of dangerous copycat machines. As mentioned earlier, Sterex Electrolysis has been around for a very long time and has a long-proven track record for success that you can trust!
