Short Wave Diathermy

Thermolysis is also known as short-wave radio frequency diathermy, radio wave, or short wave.It was developed in the 1940’s when AC/DC current became much more common. This current is required because it is the electricity that kills the hairs. This is a process of hair removal that began in the middle of the twentieth century. It works by inserting a probe into the follicle, like you also do in electrolysis. Once the probe has been inserted into the hair follicle, the water molecules that are present in the hair begin to move around and produce heat. This is how the base of the hair is destroyed so that no hair can re-grow there in the future. For this reason, some people have actually chosen to combine this method with electrolysis. This is known as the blend method. The blend method is a lot quicker and it is also much more….

Electrolysis Hair Removal

Electrolysis is the only known method of permanent hair removal. This procedure can be very intimidating though, since a needle has to be repeatedly inserted into each hair follicle. Another reason why a lot of people find this procedure intimidating is because of its cost. A treatment averages between $60 and $100 per hour. You will require at least 1 session per week for a period of several months to more than a year. (Considering the growth of hair and area in question). This procedure works by inserting a needle into the hair shaft and then sending an electrical current to the hair follicle. While the hair itself is dry, the surface that is located directly beneath the skin is wet and contains a lot of minerals. This wet, mineral rich area is where the electrical current is sent. When it reaches this area a chemical reaction occurs and the….

Electric Spring Rotator

An electric spring rotator is a device in that has a tight vibrating spring which is held next to the skin to catch multiple hairs at once and pull them out. This spring was in the shape of a bow with the coils were on the one side of the spring. These springs would then hold tightly onto the hair while the coils were spread apart. The motor would then cause the springs to rotate and flex. When you moved this machine across the skin, your hair would be caught up in the springs and get pulled out. The way in which this is done is actually quite similar to waxing. This procedure was actually first released by Epilady in 1986. Since then other companies have began selling this hair removal system. Two others are the Remington Lady Remington and the Smooth and Silky models. They use rotating discs instead….

Waxing

One way in which you can temporarily remove hair from your body is by waxing it. This is done by spreading a wax thinly over the skin and then using a cloth strip that is pressed on the top of the wax to rip the hair off in one swift movement. In this way both dead skin and the hair is removed from the root. After which you should then apply a soothing skin healing cream so that the red bumps will disappear quickly. You will not have any new hair regrow in this area for between 3 to 8 weeks at which time soft, fine new hair will grow back. You can then continue waxing the area until eventually new hair will never regrow there. The areas of your body that can be waxed include your eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms/underarms, back, abdomen and feet. Of course, there….
