Electrolysis for Curly, Wavy, or Coarse Hair
Effective, permanent hair removal for all types of hair
Curly and coarse hairs are more prone to become ingrown or cause raised bumps on your skin. Attempting to manage these problems by temporary methods such as depilatories, shaving, or tweezing can just make them worse, causing scarring or discolored areas.
These types of hair are often associated with darker skin tones, resulting in fewer options for safe and effective hair removal. Fortunately, electrolysis - the only permanent hair-removal method - works on all skin tones and all types of hair, including curly, coarse, and ingrown hairs.
