It's okay to shave between treatments, but never, ever tweeze!
Ask your electrologist for aftercare advice. We can recommend the product that is right for your skin and treatment program.
Did you know?
If your electrologist can't see the hairs, they can't zap the hairs. Plucking, waxing, threading, or tweezing before your hair removal appointment reduces the number of hairs your electrologist can remove.
Did you Know?
Electrology is the only hair removal method recognized as permanent by the FDA.
Clean skin releases unwanted hair more easily. Remove your makeup before your appointment, so the hair follicles are clean and accessible.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
Drinking plenty of water helps unwanted hair slide right out.
Did you know?
The hair you see is not all the hair you have. Hair grows in cycles. That's why it takes more than one appointment to permanently clear an area.
For a more comfortable treatment, avoid caffeine for a few hours before your appointment.
Did you know?
Gently exfoliating your skin before your treatment opens up the follicles and lets the unwanted hair slide out more easily.
Talk to your electrologist about any questions or concerns. We want your experience to be as comfortable and effective as possible.

And Surrounding Areas
Professionally performed electrolysis safely and permanently eliminates unwanted hair from the breasts and nearby sensitive areas with unsurpassed results.
Yes, this is a very common area of unwanted hair for women of all ages. However, the subject is seldom discussed, as most women find it extremely difficult to talk about. Electrolysis treatments can safely and permanently remove breast hairs.
Yes, all hairs can be removed from the breasts; it is not unusual to have hair growing from the areola.
While the breasts are sensitive to touch, they are not so sensitive to the sensation of electrolysis treatments. Most women are highly motivated to have the hair on their breasts removed and accept the treatments quite well.
Tweezing does cause hairs to become coarser over time and it hides the true amount of hair you have. All the hairs must grow before they can be permanently removed, so it is impossible for the electrologist to tell you exactly how many treatments you will need. Be sure to follow the electrologist's recommended schedule of treatments. This is essential in achieving permanency as quickly as possible.
Repeated tweezing and shaving, plus the fact that clothes are worn tight over this area, can contribute to hairs being trapped beneath the skin. Ingrown hairs can successfully be eliminated; in time, this will alleviate any irritation you may have experienced.
It is generally advised that a woman should not have breast treatments during the last trimester of her pregnancy.
