Who Is a Good Candidate for Electrolysis Hair Removal?
Generally, most patients who have unwanted hair are good candidates for electrolysis hair removal. The best candidates are those in good physical and mental health. There are no limits on hair color or thickness—electrolysis works on any hair color or type. Basically, if you have unwanted hair, then it can be removed. However, electrolysis takes time and patience for full results.
Electrolysis may not be an appropriate treatment for all patients, including those who meet the following conditions:
- Have active skin infections
- Are prone to keloid scarring
- Are on anticoagulant medications
- Have undergone facial plastic surgery or resurfacing treatments in the last 6 months
