Electrolysis is the only permanent hair removal method approved by the FDA and the American Medical Association.
Medical electrolysis devices destroy hair growth with a shortwave radio frequency after a thin probe is placed in the hair follicle. Unlike laser, electrolysis is the only hair removal method classified by the American Food and Drug Administration as permanent, since it destroys the hair follicle. It requires a series of appointments over a period of time. Also unlike laser, electrolysis works on all hair and skin colors. When properly performed, electrolysis will leave follicles incapable of regrowing hair.
