Aboutskin’s opinion

Radical hair removal is one of the most reliable methods of permanent hair removal.

Those of us who have white or blonde hair on the face cannot find a solution because laser technology does not recognize these colors because it lacks the melanin that is present in black and brown hair. We usually use hair removal methods such as thread, eyebrow tweezers or wax. The result is hair growth.

At Aboutskin we apply the radical hair removal that is not as painful as before because we have modern machines with the possibility of combining both electrolysis and thermolysis methods.

Frequent asked questions

Radical hair removal is a permanent hair removal method that is done with a sterile disposable needle. Discovered in 1869 by ophthalmologist Charles Michel in an attempt to cure an eyelash hair problem.

Using a very fine needle, we penetrate parallel to the hair into the follicle where with the help of the current we cauterize its root so that the hair does not reappear.

Radical hair removal by electrolysis: based on the use of galvanic current where it chemically destroys the hair follicle. The electrolysis of (water) H2O with NaCl, forms H2, Cl and NaOH. The sodium hydroxide that is formed is very important because it is what destroys the hair follicle. Thus, with the appropriate electrolysis time, the required amount of NaOH is produced to destroy the bulb and the nipple of the hair, a fact that is determined by whether the hair can be removed without resistance.

Radical hair removal by thermolysis: Hair removal by the method of thermolysis is based on the production of high frequency current led to a needle. A high-frequency field is created around this needle, the temperature rises and the electricity is converted into heat, destroying the hair regenerative cells.
This method is suitable for fluff, blonde and white hair.

Radical hair removal with blend: this method is a combination of both of the above methods and increases the effectiveness of radical. It is therefore used in difficult and demanding cases of hair and where other hair removal methods have failed.

  • The time of application of the current

Excessive time destroys the entire hair follicle while on the contrary insufficient time does not lead to destruction of hair regenerative cells.

  • The intensity of the electric current

Excessive current can cause permanent damage to the skin. The appropriate price intensity, which also depends on the quality of the skin, is given by reference tables. The most important thing is that the application time is properly combined with the intensity of the electric current.

  • The diameter of the needle

The very fine needle helps to have a high current density and a strong high frequency field in a small volume of tissue.

  • The insertion depth of the needle

The insertion depth of the needle depends on the size of the follicles. In the small pockets we want a small depth of penetration so as not to injure the skin, while in the deep pockets more depth is required.

  • The quality of the skin

We examine the quality of the skin because we are interested in its water content, its hardness and its age. As we know the water content of the skin increases from the epidermis to the inside of the tissues. In this way the high frequency current does not affect the surface layers but the inner ones. So because young skin is more hydrated than the more mature skin the experience of the specialist for radical hair removal is the one that will make the right combination of all the above parameters.

It is a method of selective destruction of hair cells that is in the regenerative phase through a special device that conducts direct current (electrolysis), thus electrolyzing the hair follicle. In the case of thermolysis, the temperature rises and the electricity is converted into heat. This increase in temperature also causes the destruction of the hair follicles.

Unwanted hair growth is a result of heredity and hormone levels. Also, certain medications, temporary hair removal methods and diseases can stimulate hair growth. Radical hair removal can be an option when hair growth is located in an area of the body where it may not be desirable, such as on the upper lip, chin, neck and other methods. issues or a combination of the above reasons.

The radical hair removal is applied all over the body, but mainly on the face where the hair growth is hormone-dependent or consists of white and blonde hair.

The radical is a process that requires above all patience and perseverance from the person who enters into this process but also a lot of experience from the expert who does the operation. The procedure is not time consuming however the treatment of the hairs is done one by one. What we must remember is that in order to have the desired result, we must proceed immediately to the radical hair removal as soon as we see the hair coming out.

To characterize radical hair removal as a permanent and permanent hair removal method with very fast results, it must be applied at specific intervals. The time is determined by the life cycle of the hair, ie it must be done as soon as the hair appears, in the regenerative stage so that the regenerative cells are destroyed immediately.

In radical hair removal we resort to the case of blonde or white hair that due to the absence of melanin is not recognized by the laser or if our dermatologist suggests this method in a hormone-dependent area. In any case, radical hair removal is perfectly combined with laser hair removal if everything is done under the guidance and supervision of an experienced dermatologist.

With the right application you do not have to be afraid of scars or any other side effect.

We cannot know in advance how many sessions we will need because it depends on the thickness of the hair, the area and of course if it is a hormone-dependent area (eg face). In general, the fluff leaves more easily, while on the contrary, the hairs that are in hormone-dependent areas need more sessions.

After radical hair removal, both excessive heat (eg sauna) and excessive humidity (eg swimming pool) should be avoided for 72 hours. Excessive UV exposure of the treated area (eg by tanning outside or in a tanning salon) should also be avoided and sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher should be applied to areas exposed to ultraviolet light or the sun.

In addition, cosmetics or similar products containing perfumes should be avoided 72 hours after rooting.
