Electrolysis is the only FDA approved method of permanent hair removal that involves applying a small amount of electricity to the growth cells of individual hairs directly inside of the hair follicles using a very fine probe. This process is very safe, and has been used for over 100 years to achieve permanent hair removal on all skin and hair colours.

If you are not a candidate for laser hair removal, or if you are not achieving the results that you are looking for with laser or other temporary hair removal methods, electrolysis may be an ideal solution for you. *EFFECTIVE FOR ALL HAIR COLOURS INCLUDING GREY, BLONDE AND RED HAIR.*
Because of the nature of hair growth cycles, multiple treatments will likely be required before all of the treated hairs are permanently removed. When you book your FREE consultation, we will discuss the process in depth based on an examination of your skin and hair, and the size of the treatment area.
- WHAT IS ELECTROLYSIS?
To eliminate hair growth permanently, a minute amount of electricity is gently applied inside the hair follicle. The process destroys the growth cells, inhibiting any future hair growth . This is achieved by inserting a very fine probe in the hair follicle, which is a natural opening of the skin. Unlike laser, which only targets the hairs pigment, electrolysis targets the hair follicle and the growth cells within it. Electrolysis is safe and effective for ALL types and colours of skin and hair, including grey, blond, dark, fuzzy, course and ingrown.
- IS ELECTROLYSIS SAFE?
Yes. For over 125 years, Electrolysis has proven to be safe and effective and there has never been a reported case of a disease transmission from Electrolysis. At RusticGlo, we use single disposable filaments/probes, one time use probe for every appointment and all instruments are fully sterilized before each treatment. Cleanliness and safety are of utmost importance to us. Our clinic is Alberta Health Service Approved, City Licensed and Insured.
- DOES ELECTROLYSIS HURT?
Each individual’s pain tolerance level varies. It is a minor discomfort to some while others are able to sleep during treatment. If you are however particularly sensitive or worried about pain, some clients have taken an ibuprofen or another pain reliever 30 minutes to 1 hour before their treatment time to ease any discomforts, and others have applied a topical anesthetic beforehand which we can recommend for you during your free consultation.
- HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO BE HAIR FREE?
Electrolysis is NOT an overnight process, but it is a permanent one. The length of time that it will take, will vary greatly from person to person, depending on the amount of hair, growth pattern and previous removal methods.
- WHAT MACHINE DO YOU USE?
Our clinic uses the Silhouette-Tone ST 250 and ThermoClear machines.
