About the Electrolysis Hair Remover
Using micro-current technology, the Electrolysis Hair Remover destroys the hair root and papilla to prevent future hair growth. The micro-current changes the pH in the hair follicle to alkaline which then starts to attack the hair root and papilla cells (the cells responsible for hair growth). This action continues for some time after the treatment is complete and the hair has been removed. It is not always possible to kill all of the papilla cells in a single treatment and in these situations the hair may regrow. However, if it does regrow, it is generally much finer and lighter than previously.
Successive treatments will kill the papilla cells giving a permanent result. You may use your normal epilation methods in between treatments. The destruction of the hair root cells continues for some time after the treatment has finished. It makes no difference whether you remove the hair immediately or not. If there is a particularly stubborn hair, an additional treatment or longer treatment time may be required. As with all hair removal treatments, it is recommended that the area you have treated is washed with cool water and a mild antiseptic cream applied.

Electrolysis Hair Remover Unit
85ml Conductive Gel
Step 1: Wash area to be treated with warm water and mild soap. This will remove any excess oil from the skin.
Step 2: Check the speed control is on minimum and turn the unit on with the On/Off button. The On/Off light will illuminate.
Step 3: Turn the Control Dial to suit the type of hair being treated. The treatment time varies between five and thirty seconds depending on the setting
Step 4: Apply a small amount of conductive gel to the hairs which are to be treated OR put a blob of gel on the skin, into which you can dip the tweezers before taking hold of the individual hair.
Step 5: Take hold of the hair at the point where it meets the skin. Only apply a gentle pressure on the tweezers, do NOT press the button fully (see step 7). You must use a bare finger on the tweezer button. Do not wear a glove.
Step 6: The amber treatment light will start flashing, indicating the treatment is in progress. If the amber light does not come on, check the tweezers are plugged in and that you are making a good contact with the hair at the point where it meets the skin.
Step 7: When the treatment is complete you will hear a short bleep and the green ‘treatment complete indicator’ will illuminate. The hair can now be removed by increasing the pressure on the tweezer button to pluck the hair out of the hair follicle. (The unit will then automatically reset itself to start again).
Step 8: If contact with the hair is broken during treatment the amber treatment light will go out and the unit will bleep three times. If the contact is not re-established within three seconds the treatment timer will assume you have moved onto a fresh hair and will restart the treatment programme.
