Electric epilation is an effective method of ‘permanently’ removing disruptive hair growth. Electric epilation is usually applied to white, grey, blonde and reddish hairs, which cannot be treated with laser hair removal.
In electrical epilation, hair is destroyed or weakened by applying a controlled current to the hair follicle. This will eventually make all the hairs disappear.
The skin is cleansed and prepared for the treatment
The skin therapist slips a tiny needle into the hair follicle and then puts it under power
The heat generated in the hair follicle damages and destroys the hair. The Huidzorg West skin therapist can then remove the hair directly from the skin
The skin is cared for after the treatment with a cooling aloe vera gel or nourishing day cream and SPF
Frequently Asked Questions
Multiple treatments are required.
Unfortunately, a hair is not permanently removed after one treatment. This has several causes, such as the hair’s growth cycle and the body’s ability to repair itself.
The treatment period varies from a few months to a few years, this also depends on the hairy surface.
The duration of electrical epilation differs per area: the larger the area, the longer the skin therapist will work. On average, the skin therapist works for 30 minutes.
The treatment is sensitive but not perceived as painful. It looks like pinholes that disappear immediately after the treatment.
The skin may turn red due to the administered current. This colour often disappears within a few hours.
Four weeks before treatment, no more hardening, epilation or other forms of hair removal may be used. However, the hair may be cut or shaved between treatments. The hair must be long enough during the treatment that it can be picked up with tweezers.
Electric epilation is suitable for grey, white, blonde and red hairs. These colour hairs contain few pigments and are therefore not suitable for the laser. In addition, very thin hairs cannot be treated with the laser and are then more suitable for electric epilation.
With electrical epilation, unwanted hair growth can be removed effectively and safely.
The purpose of the treatment is hair reduction. After a series of treatments, unwanted hair will be permanently removed.
However, new hairs can develop under the influence of hormones. New hair can always grow, for example during hormonal changes such as menopause and through the use of certain medication. Maintenance treatments can then be important, removing the newly formed hairs once or twice a year.
Electrical epilation is reimbursed from the supplementary insurance. Depending on your health insurance, you may be reimbursed for this. Check the policy conditions to see if the treatment is (partly) reimbursed.
