Electrolysis for curly, wavy, and coarse hair

Electrolysis For Curly, Wavy or Coarse Hair

Have you been told that your hair type or skin tone is the reason you are not a candidate for hair removal treatment? You should speak to a professional electrologist, because not only is electrolysis safe and effective for all types of hair and skin tones, it's also the only treatment that removes hair permanently.

Who has curly, wavy or coarse hair?

If you have dark skin, you have a higher likelihood of having this type of facial or body hair, but it can appear with any skin tone. Straight hair can also become ingrown.

Why is curly or coarse hair a problem?

Curly hair is more prone to become ingrown or cause raised bumps on your skin. Coarse hair gets stuck underneath the skin. Attempting to manage these problems by temporary methods such as depilatories, shaving, or tweezing can just make them worse, causing scarring or discolored areas. These methods are very hard on your skin.

What does electrolysis do about it?

Electrolysis safely and permanently removes ingrown hairs and the curly, coarse hairs that tend to damage your skin without creating issues that occur with tweezing and other temporary methods of hair removal.

Since I have this type of hair, are there any special side effects I need to consider?

No. Electrolysis has proven to be a safe and effective procedure for all skin tones and types of hair. Your AEA electrologist will explain the treatment process and answer any specific questions you have. Find an AEA electrologist in your area

Electrolysis Tip

HydrateHydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
Drinking plenty of water helps unwanted hair slide right out.

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.


Did you Know?

Electrology is the only hair removal method recognized as permanent by the FDA.

Did you know?

Gently exfoliating your skin before your treatment opens up the follicles and lets the unwanted hair slide out more easily.

Electrolysis Tip

Talk to your electrologist about any questions or concerns. We want your experience to be as comfortable and effective as possible.

Did you know?

If your electrologist can't see the hairs, they can't treat the hairs. Tweezing, waxing, or threading before or between your hair removal appointments will only reduce the number of hairs your electrologist can remove (treat).

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.

Electrolysis Tip

It's okay to shave between treatments, but never, ever tweeze!

Never tweeze between treatments.

Before and After

22-year-old man wanted his chest hair thinned, but not totally removed. Only electrolysis is able to create a completely natural look by thinning and feathering. Laser cannot duplicate this natural appearance. Results were, of course, permanent.


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.)
