Electrolysis for Breasts & Sensitive Areas
Safe, comfortable, permanent hair removal
The breast area is a very common area of unwanted hair. However, the subject is seldom discussed, as most people find it extremely difficult to talk about. Professionally-performed electrolysis safely and permanently eliminates unwanted hair from the breast and nipple area with unsurpassed results.
The breast area is especially prone to ingrown hairs. Repeated tweezing , shaving, and the tendency to wear tight-fitting bras and other clothing over this area, can contribute to hairs being trapped beneath the skin. Electrolysis can successfully eliminate ingrown hairs, alleviating irritation and potential for infection.
Note: It is generally advised not to have electrolysis treatments on the breasts during the last trimester of a pregnancy.
Common Questions Regarding Electrolysis for Sensitive Areas
Do people ever have electrolysis treatments on their breasts?
Yes, this is a very common area of unwanted hair for all ages. However, the subject is seldom discussed, as most people find it extremely difficult to talk about. Electrolysis treatments can safely and permanently remove breast hairs.
Can hairs around the nipple be removed?
Yes, all hairs can be removed from the breasts; it is not unusual to have hair growing from the areola.
Does it hurt there?
While the breasts are sensitive to touch, they are not so sensitive to the sensation of electrolysis treatments. Most people are highly motivated to have the hair on their breasts removed and accept the treatments quite well.
I've been tweezing those hairs for a long time. How many treatments will it take?
Tweezing does cause hairs to become coarser over time and it hides the true amount of hair you have. All the hairs must grow before they can be permanently removed, so it is impossible for the electrologist to tell you exactly how many treatments you will need. Be sure to follow the electrologist's recommended schedule of treatments. This is essential in achieving permanency as quickly as possible.
I've got a lot of ingrown hairs on my breasts. Will that be a problem?
Repeated tweezing and shaving, plus the fact that clothes are worn tight over this area, can contribute to hairs being trapped beneath the skin. Ingrown hairs can successfully be eliminated; in time, this will alleviate any irritation you may have experienced.
If I'm pregnant, can I have electrolysis treatments on my breasts?
It is generally advised to avoid breast treatments during the last trimester of pregnancy.
