Skin Resurfacing & Rejuvenation in NYC Using Microneedling and Chemical Peels

imagesMicroneedling works by creating miro-injuries to the skin so that in response to the micro-injuries the skin produces collagen and elastin and thus improving the skin’s appearance. Microneedling can help resurface the skin, help with scarring, even out uneven skin tone and texture, and tighten the skin. As we age, we lose approximately 1% of the amount of collagen in our skin on our face each year. This leads to thinning, aging, sagging, dull, and fragile skin.

Whereas the VI chemical peel is made with a unique blend of salicylic acid, vitamin c, phenol, retinoic acid, and TCA. Chemical peels are non-invasive treatments that work to slow or reverse the aging process. Chemical peels help restore skin that is blemished, damaged, dull or aged and give the skin a glow that can last for months

Electrolysis During Pregnancy

Pregnancy can cause hormone fluctuations, oftentimes increasing the amount of hormones in the body, resulting in unwanted hair growth. The main hormones that cause this growth are called androgens. This growth can happen in different areas on the body including the face, chest, and abdomen. Also increased blood circulation and pump-up metabolism are bringing more nutrients to your follicles, which increase growth.

electrolysis-pregnancy-300x170Many people ask if it is safe to practice electrolysis during pregnancy. There have been no reports of electrolysis causing problems in pregnant women, and the practice has been around for well over 100 years. Many electrologists require a letter from your health provider authorizing treatment during pregnancy. If you chose to have electrolysis during pregnancy, there are some important guidelines your Electrologist should know and follow.

Transgender Hair Removal

For those who are undergoing gender reassignment, electrolysis is often one of the keys towards meaningful self-expression. It can help you feel beautiful, boost confidence and feel externally aligned with your internal gender. When you feel attractive on the outside, it strengthens positive feelings on the inside.

No matter your gender, nearly everyone takes certain measures to improve appearance. Of the countless health and cosmetic procedures and activities, electrolysis is just another way to get you one step closer to feeling good about yourself and your looks.

We currently treat transgender clients and have treated transgender clients in the past. The primary areas that transgender clients seek treatment for are:

The face and body: Main areas here include the cheeks, beard area, jawline and chin. We treat ingrown hairs that are common in the beard area. We also help remove hair on the ears. A hairless face helps you look younger, silkier and more feminine.

Is Thermolysis or Blend Right for You?

When it comes to choosing an electrolysis method, there are several things to consider.  What is your past history of hair removal? What color skin do you have? What is your hair texture? We help guide you to make the best decision for you.

There are three primary types of electrolysis. Galvanic, Thermolysis and Blend. In this article, we will focus on the two most popular types – thermolysis and blend. They are all safe, permanent and effective, however the level of effectiveness depends on several factors (such as your genetics, tolerance, effort to maintain regular treatments, etc.). For both methods, it is important to maintain on a regular appointment schedule so that hairs are treated during the growth stage. Let’s dive into specifics about these two types of treatments.

The Thermolysis Method

First used in 1923, thermolysis did not gain popularity until the 1940s.  Today, it is one of the most widely practiced forms of hair removal. Thermolysis is heat-based electrolysis, also known as shortwave method. A thermolyic epilator destroys the hair follicle by injecting each follicle with high frequency radio energy. This energy produces localized heat and weakens cells and surrounding tissues to prevent future hair growth. This is a process called electrocoagulation. There are no chemicals used with this method.

Thermolysis has low to medium sensitivity depending on your tolerance level.  Individual hairs are treated in mere seconds, as there are not many steps involved in this procedure. An electrologist can move swiftly from hair to hair and can reach a lot of hair follicles.

This method is meant for people who have shallow-rooted, thin hairs, and small follicles. It is great for hairs on facial areas like upper lip, chin, cheeks, sideburns and neck. The reason why thermolysis works best on this type of hair is because it simply and quickly removes peach fuzz and thin hairs. Thick or coarse, beardlike hair is not most suitable for this method.

The Blend Method

The blend method was developed by Arther Hinkel in 1948. Also known as dual action method, blend “blends” the galvanic and thermolysis methods into one. By combining the lye produced through galvanic method along with the heat from thermolysis, hair follicles are destroyed much more effectively and efficiently.  First, when lye is heated, it has a stronger effect on the hair follicle. Next, the tissue becomes more porous allows the heated lye to disperse more.  The hot lye solution spreads into all areas of the hair shaft. This helps to prevent cells both shallow and deep from building new hairs.

Blend is sometimes painful and it does take longer to treat each hair follicle. This process is slightly more complex and has several techniques involved. Sophisticated equipment with computerized blend epilators are best suited for work on extensive hair removal, which we have at Limoges Electrolysis NYC.

 

It is best to use this method if you have deep, coarse hair follicles, similar to a male’s beard. It is also great for people who experience ingrown hairs regularly. People with curly or wavy hair types see much success with this method, too. This treatment is ideal for transgender clients and African Americans. The reason why blend works best for these people is because it is very strong, precise and targets the entire hair shaft.

It is common for people to transition from blend to thermolysis once their hair becomes finer and is growing in more slowly.

Electrolysis Permanent Hair Removal in a Clean Environment

When it comes to cosmetic procedures, stringent sterilization practices are important. Though there are no set regulations for sterilization techniques for electrolysis offices in the state of New York, at Top Electrolysis NYC, we prioritize clean tools and a clean environment. We abide by industry standards for sterilization procedures. There are several procedures we take to ensure the utmost safe environment.

Working in electrolysis means that we use tools on a lot of different bodies and on a lot of different body parts. From face to feet, we treat just about everything.  For each client, we use a new facial mask, a new pair of and we cover the table with new paper.  Additionally, we cleanse the client’s treatment area with an alcoholic cleanser before beginning electrolysis, which helps to remove dirt, oil and potentially harmful bacteria.

We also use a medical grade autoclave to sterilize tweezers and caps after each use. This mini-oven is FDA approved for medical sterilization. It works by dry heating all stainless steel tools in strong temperatures. This helps prevent any cross contamination of germs, which could cause a rash or fungus. Click here to learn more about the dry heat sterilizer, S500.

Additionally, the ballet probes we use are individually wrapped. This is because they are for single use only. We may open a second probe if a client is having various body parts worked on, such as bikini line and chin. Some electrolysis offices do not change probes in between clients. This is something you should avoid because the probes are being inserted into the follicle near the blood supply, and has the potential to cause health issues.

Throughout the day and at the end of the day, we ensure the floors and equipment materials are kept tidy. We dispose of single use instruments in a medical waste container after each session. We are strict about maintaining a hygienic environment.

Whenever you have any procedure done, be aware of your surroundings. Check for an autoclave, latex gloves, individually wrapped probes, paper towels and a lined wastebasket. Prioritize your health and safety and be sure to talk to your electrologist if you have any concerns.

At Limoges Electrolysis we put your safety first. We invest in quality products and sterilization tools to provide you with a clean, professional and comfortable environment.

Hydrate for Happy Skin

What does your skin feel like? Is it dry? Oily? Smooth? Scaly? Taking care of your skin can be hugely beneficial to the success of your electrolysis treatments and your quality of life in general. In particular, keeping your skin hydrated is key. When your body gets enough water, your skin is happier! In this article, we will discuss the wonderful affect that hydrating your body has on your skin, as well as techniques to keep it hydrated.

When your skin has enough moisture, the hair follicles slide out more easily. Sometimes clients come in for electrolysis treatments while they are dehydrated and it makes a noticeable difference in the quality of their treatment. If they have not consumed enough water, their hair follicles might break during tweezing or be harder to pull out. When clients are fully hydrated, it makes for better tweezing of the hair follicles and smoother skin overall.

There are various techniques to hydrating your skin. Drinking plenty of water is an easy and fast way to keep hydrated. Aim to consume two to three liters a day. Water benefits not only your skin, but helps your organs function better as well. Be sure to drink water the day before and the day of your appointment. Refraining from caffeine the day of treatment is also advantageous to the skin.

Getting regular facials is also great for the skin. Facials help cleanse the skin of chemicals from pollution, grease, dirt and other impurities. According to Livestrong, “Facial treatments help to improve and restore circulation to facial skin layers, increasing the flow of oxygen-enriched blood to skin cells. This rush of blood to the skin gives your skin a healthy glow and plumps skin cells with vital nutrients and water, which reduce the appearance of wrinkled and dry skin.” Steam from facials helps open the pores and supply the skin with much needed moisture.

Exfoliation prior to electrolysis is very important because it removes debris (such as dead skin or makeup) near the hair follicle and helps release any embedded hairs. You can use a facial scrub, such as sea salt scrub, or just a plain warm washcloth. Whatever your method, always be gentle when exfoliating any part of the body, especially the face and other sensitive areas. Be sure not to rub the skin too hard or it can create redness, a rash or irritation.

Avoid super hot showers and showering too often. Hot water might feel good in the moment, but it will remove the natural oils and healthy bacteria from your skin, not to mention, completely drying it out! Showering too often can irritate the skin and create an environment more susceptible to infection.

Finally, make sure to hydrate your skin is through heat and steam. This could mean engaging in hot yoga workout, or spending time relaxing in a steam room or sauna. “Skin cells need water to live, so steam can be very beneficial for keeping surface layers feeling moist and looking healthy,” celebrity aesthetician Renée Rouleau explained. Make sure exposure to extreme heat is only done in moderation. According to dermatologist, Dr Engelman “Just 15 minutes in the steam room…stimulates circulation, increases perspiration, and eliminates toxins.” Lather up with lotion after spending time in steam to lock the moisture in.

To recap:

  • Drink two to three liters of water a day
  • Turn down the temperature in the shower
  • Shower every two to three days
  • Exfoliate
  • Use a humidifier

Is Electrolysis Permanent?

Is Electrolysis Permanent?

Are you looking for a way to get rid of unwanted hair and hoping to find a permanent solution? One of the options to take into consideration is electrolysis. For many men and women, electrolysis is the best option for getting rid of hair. It is a process that is best done by a licensed and experienced technician as at home systems are not effective or safe. Electrolysis can be a highly effective way of getting rid of hair that you no longer want or need.

Is Electrolysis Better Than Laser?

Electrolysis versus laser hair removal

In many aspects it can be better than laser depending upon the unwanted hair situation. What many people do not realize is that laser hair removal is a reduction of hair presence – not necessarily removal! The FDA states that laser hair removal is “Permanent Hair Reduction.” This means laser will not fully remove every last hair and over the course of time it might come back to a certain extent. Electrolysis, on the other hand, offers a permanent solution that removes all unwanted hair and keeps it gone for good.

How does Electrolysis Work?

Electrolysis is a process of removing hair that can be used on the face or the rest of the body. This versatility makes it a better option over many other methods. This process is conducted using a medical electrolysis device. These devices, called epilators, have the job of killing the blood supply of the hair which causes the hair to grow. It does this through a short wave radio frequency. The insertion of the probe is minimal and does not impact your overall health, but it does stop hair from growing back in the area after a number of treatments.

In the process of electrolysis, the technician will apply the epilator to the skin to address all the follicles. The device will insert a very small and thin probe into the hair follicle. It does this at the very surface of the skin. When it does, the short wave radio frequency destroys the follicle’s ability to produce hair. In return, the hair is then removed harmlessly with tweezers. The process is fast.

Will It Work for You?

Many people who have unwanted hair growth struggle with other hair removal procedures either because they do not work permanently or because they are ineffective on their type of hair and skin. Waxing, threading, shaving, and other temporary ways to remove hair require many appointments over a course of a lifetime. Most of the time, electrolysis is a solution when other methods are not. What’s more this procedure can also be rather effective on people who do not qualify for laser hair removal or those who do not want to use laser hair removal.

If you are ready to have hair-free skin, electrolysis can be a solution for you.
