Our electrolysis services are administered using the Telangitron-blend. The time needed for electrolysis treatment varies greatly from person to person. Factors such as the size of the area to be treated, the curvature of the hair follicle, the level of skin sensitivity, hormonal balance and heredity all have an effect.

Electrologist Fino Gior, author of Modern Electrology, gives these estimates:

Temporary side effects from electrolysis may include some redness and swelling, dryness and scabs. Hair can continue to grow in the underarms, pubic area and around the nipples during a woman’s reproductive years.

How long do electrolysis results last?
Electrolysis is often viewed as a permanent hair removal method. Once the hair root is destroyed, the hair will not grow back. There are exceptions however. In some cases hair does regrow in places after electrolysis treatment and clients need to return once or twice a year for a cleanup.


Post procedure:

Directly after:
  •  do not touch your treated skin area and keep the area clean.
  • Do not wash the treated area for 24-hours to reduce irritation and bacteria. Water if anything.
  • No make-up on treated area for 24 hours. Avoid perfume and alcohol based products which can dry out skin excessively.
  • Avoid sunlight for 72 hours to prevent the possible formation of brown spots. After 24 hours wear a high SPF sunscreen.
  • No swimming (especially immediately after treatment).
2-7 days after:
  • Wash your hands thoroughly before touching the treated area.
  • Keep the treated area clean with a mild skin cleanser. Make sure that it hasn’t got any harsh glycolic acids in it, as these will cause sensitivity.
  • Apply Recovery balm (available to purchase at the Beauty Barn) cream twice a day for two or three days or as needed this will soothe any of the initial redness.
  • Do not exfoliate, scrub or use peels 5-7 days following treatment.
  • Avoid contact with oily, perfumed or alcohol-based products.
  • Apply sunscreen that you know doesn’t irritate your skin.
  • Do not rub area with flannels or towels.
  • No retinols or anti-aging products for minimum of 1 week.

What To Expect

When you arrive at The Beauty Barn you are welcome to come in to the yellow barn. This area has seating, retail items for you to peruse and there may also be a non-private service happening in there as well. If the weather is nice, feel free to enjoy the courtyard behind the yellow building. Please fill out any accompanying forms that go with your service selected so you have that done ahead of time if possible.

We will have a discussion about your goals, what areas you’d like to see improvement, and then we will give you a moment to get comfortable (robe, undressed, clothes on), whatever you choose – depending on your service.

Don’t Forget Your Forms!

Keep hair long enough for the wax to grip it. When the hair is too short, the wax can’t pick it up well enough to remove it; when it’s too long, it prevents wax from adhering and causes more pain. Two to three weeks of growth, or about an eighth to a quarter of an inch, is ideal for leg, underarm and bikini hair.

Gently exfoliate your skin a day or two before waxing, but skip harsh scrubs the day of your waxing appointment. Exfoliation helps wax grab hair and not skin, but it can also leave skin more sensitive to pain, so lighter is better. Using Dermalogica’s Daily Mircofoliant is what we recommend for a light exfolation.

Moisturize well on the days leading up to your appointment. Healthy, well-moisturized skin allows the wax to release more easily. Too much moisturizer could coat the hair and interfere with the wax’s grip, so avoid moisturizing on the day of your waxing session.

Whether you prefer a Brazilian wax, extended bikini, keep skin in the bikini area scrupulously clean. Waxing can leave skin vulnerable to infection, and areas of the body that are normally warm and damp are more prone to bacterial growth.

Certain medications can sensitize skin to waxing. Retin-A creams do amazing things for fine lines, acne and uneven pigmentation, but they also leave skin susceptible to injury during waxing. Discontinue retinol-based products for two weeks before waxing. Accutane users should not do any hair removal.
