Is Electrolysis Painful?
Like many minor procedures in medicine, electrolysis does have a short healing phase. During this time there may be some transient redness and/or swelling, tiny bruises, and occasional pinpoint scabbing. Since electrolysis does cause try "wounds" under the skin, it does break the skin barrier to bacteria and increases your chance of infection, which could cause scarring. It is important to follow after care instructions to prevent any infection. Other side effects may occur in persons with special health conditions. Your Electrologist will take a health history to enable your treatments to be safe with minimal side effects.
