Electrolysis is a safe and effective hair removal method, but certain medical conditions may affect treatment.

  • Patients with a history of heart disease, epilepsy, or seizures will need written permission from their GP or consultant before undergoing electrolysis. Pacemakers and similar implants will also need written permission, as electrolysis may interfere with the frequency.
  • Diabetes may increase the risk of infection and slow healing of the treated area.
  • Patients with a compromised immune system may also experience slower healing times and an increased risk of infection.
  • Skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema: electrolysis should be avoided in the affected areas during the active stage. 
  • Some medications can affect skin healing: please bring details of any prescribed medication to your consultation.
  • Cancer: clients will need evidence of their all-clear and written permission from their oncologist to proceed with treatment.
