Who can get Galvanic Electrolysis?

Galvanic electrolysis is a hair removal method that is suitable for individuals of all sexes, ages, skin types and hair colours. This is because it directly targets the hair follicle, rather than the pigment in the hair, making it effective for everyone. Find out more information on our treatments page.

Electrolysis Next Steps

Here are a few of the most common questions answered on how you can get started on your journey to becoming hair-free for life. Do you have more questions? Give us a call today.

Getting started is simple! Simply follow these 3 easy steps:

  1. Book your appointment: – Call 9221 8594 (CBD), 9719 1391 (Drummoyne) or use the ‘request a booking’ link at the top of the page.
  2. Attend your consultation with our expert clinician and learn:
    • How our galvanic multi-probe method works;
    • How many hours of treatment you will need;
    • Length of the treatment period;
    • Length of each session;
    • Length of time between treatments;
    • Whether you will receive treatment with 16 or 32 probes;
  3. Get started with your first treatment: You’re prepped, ready and excited, so get on your way to your new, hair-free life!

DO

Drink plenty of water. Well-hydrated skin can:

  • Make the treatment more comfortable;
  • Improve the conduction of the electrical currents used in treatment.

DON’T

  • Consume foods and drinks that will dehydrate your skin including chocolate, caffeine and alcohol for 24-hrs before treatment;
  • Use retinoids for at least 1-week prior to treatment;
  • Shave for 3 – 5 days prior to treatment;
  • Bleach your unwanted hair for at least a week before treatment;
  • Sunbathe for at least 48 hrs before treatment.
DO
  • Cool your skin using an ice pack. Some people experience slight swelling and/or redness after electrolysis treatment, and this is normal. It is best to first use an ice pack for up to 20 minutes, and then apply Melfol Calm Balm to the treated area to soothe the skin.
  • Tip: You can store Melfol Calm Balm in your fridge so that it provides an extra cooling effect on the skin. Apply it liberally to your skin in the evening and allow it to dry, and then rinse it off the next morning. Continue using Melfol Calm Balm in between your electrolysis treatments until your skin has completely healed.
DON’T
  • Avoid rubbing, scratching and over-touching the treated area during the first 24 hours post-treatment;
  • Never pick scabs: Removing a scab prematurely can cause scars and increase the risk of infection;
  • Avoid excessive sweating immediately after treatment, such as during workouts or visiting a sauna, since this can trigger a build-up of bacteria and infection.
If you must remove your hair between appointments, then it is best to shave or clip it.

The length of electrolysis treatment sessions depends on hair growth density and the size of the area to be treated. Typically, an electrolysis treatment session can last from 15 minutes to one hour.

The level of discomfort you feel will depend on the area being treated and your individual level of sensitivity and pain threshold. Our expert electrologists are trained to minimise discomfort felt during treatment. Get in touch with any questions!

At Permanence, treatments are charged at an hourly rate, with the hair density and area of concern being determining factors in the overall cost. At your free initial consultation, our expert staff will assess your areas of concern and provide information regarding treatment cost. Typically, longer treatments are more cost-effective and we also offer generous treatment packages.

What’s more, we will create an individual Permanence Treatment Plan tailored to your unique requirements. We also offer flexible scheduling and will make sure to follow a treatment schedule that suits your needs. You can be confident that from day one, you will know the estimated cost and length of treatment to achieve your goal. Click here to book your free consultation.

Should’ve started years ago I wish I’d started this process years ago. I was always too embarrassed about excess hair. Well that is what they do and see all the time. Juliet makes you feel totally at ease and now I’m seeing results I eagerly await my next appointment. Worth the cost and slight discomfort to see an embarrassing issue disappear.

Client Stories

Sally was diagnosed with PCOS in her teens, which resulted in course dark hair growth on her face and neck. Having tried many methods that failed, in her 20s she started to secretly shave her face every day. Upon discovering Permanence, she started her treatment plan and saw results immediately. Today, Sally enjoys her newfound freedom and confidence, and describes the emotional impact of not having unwanted hair anymore as “priceless”.

Sally's Story

The hair on my face is not something I consider a problem anymore, and the emotional impact of that is priceless.

I am so thankful for the skill, kindness, and support of Noreen and all the clinicians at Permanence City.
