Professionally performed electrolysis safely and permanently eliminates unwanted hair from the breasts and nearby sensitive areas with unsurpassed results.
Yes, this is a very common area of unwanted hair for women of all ages. However, the subject is seldom discussed, as most women find it extremely difficult to talk about. Electrolysis treatments can safely and permanently remove breast hairs.
Yes, all hairs can be removed from the breasts; it is not unusual to have hair growing from the areola.
While the breasts are sensitive to touch, they are not so sensitive to the sensation of electrolysis treatments. Most women are highly motivated to have the hair on their breasts removed and accept the treatments quite well.
Tweezing does cause hairs to become coarser over time and it hides the true amount of hair you have. All the hairs must grow before they can be permanently removed, so it is impossible for the electrologist to tell you exactly how many treatments you will need. Be sure to follow the electrologist's recommended schedule of treatments. This is essential in achieving permanency as quickly as possible.
Repeated tweezing and shaving, plus the fact that clothes are worn tight over this area, can contribute to hairs being trapped beneath the skin. Ingrown hairs can successfully be eliminated; in time, this will alleviate any irritation you may have experienced.
It is generally advised that a woman should not have breast treatments during the last trimester of her pregnancy.
Answers to general questions about electrolysis are available on the FAQ page.
It's okay to shave between treatments, but never, ever tweeze!
Did you know?
The hair you see is not all the hair you have. Hair grows in cycles. That's why it takes more than one appointment to permanently clear an area.
Before and After
Publicity photo of a 25-year-old film/stage actor. The body hair was sculpted, not just removed. Hairs were cleared at the lower pectorals. Hair in the center of the chest was feathered to look normal. The stomach hair was thinned and shaped into a normal centerline. Only electrolysis can produce this natural and undetectable appearance. Results were permanent. (Electrologist: Mike Bono, Santa Barbara.)
Before and After
This is a common eyebrow case. The woman had been tweezing and lost control of the desired shape. As the hairs grew back, the electrologist was able to reshape the eyebrows into a pleasing natural shape. Results were permanent; this woman will never have to pluck her eyebrows again - ever!

Before and After
26-year-old man with excessive beard hair on his neck. He had difficulty shaving this area which often resulted in the skin breaking out and the development of ingrown hairs. The "after" photo shows his neck clear of hair, pustules (breakouts) and ingrown hairs (bumps). Results were permanent.
