In light of our temporary closure during COVID-19, we wanted to share the following tips for managing hair growth between appointments. Although missing electrolysis treatments is not ideal, there are some things you can do (and avoid) until treatments resume:
Avoid fully removing unwanted hairs
Continue to avoid tweezing. plucking, and waxing (once we reopen, we want to able to zap those hairs!) Methods to reduce visibility of unwanted hairs between electrolysis sessions
If you need to reduce the visibility of hair growth, you can clip, cut, or shave. You may also bleach if you know already that that works well for you (but if you haven’t tried this method we recommend sticking to clipping or shaving, as lightening products are difficult to use properly and can cause skin irritation).
Most importantly, once we reopen it’s best to get treatment back on track as soon as possible. If you’re already a Nios client, we’ll let you know when we reopen. If you’re not a client yet, just send us an e-mail (email@example.com) or give us a ring (212-863-9058) and we’ll let you know once we’re back in action :).
