The basics of electrolysis hair removal

Electric hair removal is an increasingly popular method of permanently eliminating unwanted hair. You’ll learn exactly what electrolysis is and how it compares to laser treatment.

What is electrolysis?

Electrolysis is a hair removal technique that uses an electric current to destroy hair follicles. At Epilium & Skin, we use a fine needle to penetrate each hair follicle and deliver an electrical impulse.

This pulse destroys the cells responsible for hair growth. Electrolysis is the only hair removal method recognized by the FDA as permanent. It is effective on all skin and hair types, whether light or dark.

The number of sessions required varies according to the area treated and hair density. You may need several sessions spaced a few weeks apart to achieve optimal results. With electrolysis, each hair is treated individually, guaranteeing high precision and efficiency.

Differences between Electric and Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal and electrolysis are two distinct methods of hair removal, each with its own advantages. Laser hair removal uses beams of light to target the melanin pigments in the hair, which is faster for larger areas.

Laser Hair Removal

  • Fast : Suitable for large areas such as legs or back.
  • Selective : more effective on darker hairs and lighter skins.


  • Precise : Ideal for small areas such as the face.
  • Universal : Works on all hair and skin types.

At Epilium & Skin, we take a personalized approach to your specific needs. The choice between laser and electrolysis depends on factors such as hair color, skin type and the areas to be treated.

Procedure for Electric Hair Removal

Electrolysis is a permanent hair removal solution that uses a needle to eradicate the hair follicle bulb. This procedure requires prior consultation, meticulous preparation and appropriate post-session care.

Consultation and Assessment

Before starting any electric hair removal session, a thorough consultation is essential. At this stage, we assess your skin type and hair density, as well as the areas to be treated.

A diagnosis is made by one of our lazer doctors to determine the anagen phase of your hair, i.e. the active growth phase when hair removal is most effective. Personalized recommendations are then provided to optimize results and minimize discomfort.

How a session unfolds

During a typical session, a fine needle is inserted into the hair follicle, down to the hair root. An electrical impulse is then delivered to destroy the bulb. You may feel a slight pain, comparable to a pinprick.

Session duration varies according to the area to be treated and hair density. We often apply a soothing cream after the procedure to reduce any redness and irritation.

After the Session: Care and Recovery

Post-session, it is crucial to take care of your skin to promote optimal recovery and prevent any irritation. We recommend using soothing cream and avoiding direct exposure to the sun for a few days.

Your skin may experience some redness or swelling, which are normal signs after electrolysis. Respect a rest interval between sessions to allow the skin to regenerate and avoid any weakening of the hair follicle.

Electrolysis hair removal prices and factors influencing prices

Electrolysis hair removal, a permanent hair removal method, varies in price according to several specific criteria.

Understanding rates

Electric hair removal rates are based mainly on the duration of the sessions. Here’s a clear idea of our prices:

5 minutes 30€
15 minutes 50€
30 minutes 90€
45 minutes 130€
1h 160€
thereafter, for each additional quarter-hour 30€

These prices reflect the cost of the technology used and the expertise of the practitioner. Short sessions (15 to 30 minutes) are often reserved for small areas of the face or for finishing off after laser treatment.

For larger areas, such as the body, the duration can range from 45 minutes to 1h30, depending on your specific needs and the density of the hair to be treated.

Factors Affecting Cost

Several factors influence the final price of an electrolysis hair removal session:

  • Area treated: Facial areas such as the chin, cheeks or upper lip often require less time, around 15 to 30 minutes per session. For larger body areas, the session can last up to 1h30.
  • Hair density: The higher the hair density, the greater the number of sessions required, thus increasing the total cost.
  • Treatment tolerance: The duration of a session may also depend on your tolerance to the technique. Some patients require more frequent breaks, lengthening treatment times.
  • Phase of the hair cycle: Each session targets hair in the growth phase, requiring several appointments to cover the entire hair cycle.
  • Social security coverage: As a general rule, electrolysis hair removal is not reimbursed by social security, except under certain specific medical conditions.

Taking these different factors into account will enable you to more accurately predict the overall cost of your electrolysis hair removal treatment.

Considerations and contraindications

Electrolysis hair removal is an effective, long-lasting method. However, there are certain contraindications and restrictions that must be taken into account to guarantee the safety and efficacy of the treatment.

Safety and contraindications

When it comes to electrolysis hair removal, our priority at Epilium & Skin Paris is your safety. Certain medical conditions make electrolysis inadvisable. For example, people suffering from heart disease or wearing metal implants should avoid this treatment.

Pregnant women should not undergo electrolysis, as the effects of electrical impulses on the fetus have not been sufficiently studied. In addition, people undergoing radiotherapy or chemotherapy are also contraindicated, as their skin is more sensitive and likely to react negatively.

Criteria and restrictions

Épilium & Skin carefully evaluates each patient file before starting an electrolysis treatment. We consider several criteria to determine suitability for treatment. For example, wearing an IUD is not necessarily a contraindication, but it is crucial to inform your practitioner.

People with severe skin allergies or infections are also advised not to opt for electrolysis. By taking these restrictions into account, we are able to offer a safe, personalized service to each and every one of our patients.

Results and Interview

Electrolysis hair removal offers long-lasting results, while requiring specific maintenance to ensure smooth, regrowth-free skin.

Efficiency and expected results

With electrolysis hair removal, you can expect permanent results. Each session specifically targets the hair follicle, gradually reducing hair density. For certain areas, particularly hormone-dependent zones, several sessions spaced out will be necessary.

The frequency of sessions depends on hair density and the area being treated. We generally observe a noticeable reduction in regrowth after just a few sessions. However, in rare cases, paradoxical regrowth may occur, necessitating adjustment of treatment.

Regrowth management and maintenance

After the initial sessions, regular maintenance is essential to maintain the results achieved. You may need to schedule maintenance sessions to target remaining hair and prevent unwanted regrowth.

Maintenance sessions are generally less frequent and shorter. Excessive stimulation should be avoided to minimize the risk of excessive regrowth. We recommend sessions adapted to your skin type and hair density to optimize results.

You’ll also need to follow our post-treatment recommendations, such as avoiding sun exposure and using skin-soothing products. This will ensure the best possible healing and redness-free skin.

I had my first electrolysis session on my chin today and I can’t tell you how satisfied I am with it. I’d recommend this institute, a very pleasant person who even made you forget this slightly unpleasant moment (yes, it’s tingling all the same). I can’t wait to go back and see the first results 🤞

I’ve been a patient at this center for 10 years, and the kindness, support and follow-up provided by the professionals are to be commended! I highly recommend the laser (follow-up and test beforehand), and it turns out that I have nothing to say about my underarms, legs and bikini line, which I’m continuing to treat electrically. I highly recommend it!
