A key component to electrolysis treatment is a reliable pair of tweezers or forceps. Once the mild electrical pulse has been applied to the hair, it must then be lifted out from the follicle with a pair of tweezers. Choosing a sturdy pair of tweezers can make hair removal notably more efficient for both the client and the electrologist. A properly sharpened pair of tweezers can grant you the precision to remove even the shortest of hairs with reduced pain.
Numbing and Healing Creams
The multiple electric shocks that a client can feel during the procedure (although mild) can sometimes be painful, especially if a client has delicate and sensitive skin. As a result, many professional electrologists have begun incorporating the use of special medicated topical creams during treatment to improve the quality of treatment and reduce client discomfort.
Hilltop Skin Care is proud to carry an effective line of products from Zensa to aid with pain and healing. Using a lidocaine topical numbing cream on a patient’s skin prior to an electrolysis procedure can help reduce pain and makes the entire process much easier on the client’s skin. A topical healing cream made from grapefruit extract and calendula seeds can also be used post-procedure to encourage healing and reduce irritation.
