Electrolysis Hair Removal at Nios

Electrolysis permanently destroys hairs by gently delivering a small amount of heat to the base of the hair follicle through a very fine, flexible probe. Electrolysis is the only proven and safe way to permanently remove hair - there is no other hair removal system that can claim to be as effective!

Laser practitioners often compare their treatment to electrolysis. But the FDA no longer allows laser hair removal to advertise its services as permanent removal, only as permanent reduction. And laser hasn't been evaluated for long-term safety. But don't take our word for it. The FDA website on laser facts is one place where you can start your research.

Nios is redefining the practice of permanent hair removal and electrolysis by establishing the highest safety procedures and training its electrologists more than any other electrology practice.

Electrolysis vs. Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal practitioners often compare their treatment to electrolysis. But the FDA no longer allows laser hair removal to advertise its services as permanent removal, only as permanent reduction. And laser hasn't been evaluated for long-term safety. But don't take our word for it. The FDA website on laser facts is one place where you can start your research.

Why does electrolysis work better than laser?

Laser destroys hair follicles using heat, but the heat must reach the base of the hair follicle, which lies beneath the skin. Yet the heat produced by laser hits the whole surface of your skin (which is the reason you have increased chances of side effects such as burning). When the heat reaching the follicle is sufficient, it can delay the growth of or destroy the follicle. But not enough heat always reaches the follicle, which is why the F.D.A. only allows laser to market as hair reduction, not laser hair removal.

Best Value Deal: 10% discount will apply to packages of 10 or more treatments.

The amount of time required for electrolysis varies greatly from person to person. For example, two people may want to remove underarm hair, but the first might get treated for 15 minutes because he or she only has a couple hairs while the second may need 30 minutes. We will be able to give you a better estimate of the treatment length and number of treatments when you come in for a free consultation (in other words, as much as we'd like, we cannot give you an estimate over the phone or email since we need to see how much hair you have!).

Please help us keep the consultations free! We require a credit card number at time of reservation to hold your consultation, though the consultation is complimentary and we do not charge your card. We charge $72 for consultations who cancel with less than 24-hour notice or do not show up.

Permanent Eyebrow Shaping

"Stop tweezing, shaving, waxing, threading, and spending money to get your eyebrows in shape!

Well-groomed eyebrows have an enormous effect on the way you look -- balancing the shape of your face, and shaving (no pun intended) years off your age.

Since electrolysis is extremely precise, it is essentially the only way to permanently shape perfect eyebrows (in other words, laser hair removal just won't do).

Every person's bone structure is different -- that is why we tailor your eyebrow shapes to enhance the shape of your own features.

For men, we remove unibrows and make eyebrows look clean-shaven, but not too defined.

Ingrown Hair, Razor Bumps, & Pseudofolliculitis Barbae

How to get rid of Ingrown Hair, Razor Bumps, Shaving bumps, Pseudofolliculitis Barbae, & Folliculitis

Ingrown hair is caused when hair gets trapped inside the follicle or re-grows into the skin. This often occurs in shaved areas since the hair edge is sharper and can more easily penetrate the skin. Common affected areas include the bikini (bikini bumps), legs, and underarm (for women) and the neck and face (beard) in men.

Pseudofolliculitis barbae - commonly called razor bumps or shave or shaving bumps - is one possible result of ingrown hair. This condition often involves inflammation of the hair follicle that causes firm reddish or dark bumps on the skin and is much more common in people with curly hair (which is why razor bumps are frequent in men and women with black skin). Repeated shaving of these bumps may lead to irritation and pustules similar to acne and may lead to permanent scarring or keloid formation.
