Frequently Asked Questions

9. Are there any contraindications?

There are certain conditions which indicate you should not have electrolysis or you should carefully consider it. During the consultation I will ask you to disclose information regarding the following:

  • Bleeding disorders
  • Epilepsy
  • Diabetes
  • Pregnancy
  • High blood pressure
  • Hormonal imbalance/endocrine disorder
  • Skin conditions e.g Rosacea, ezcema, dermatitis,psoriasis
  • Cancer or history of it
  • Viral infections e.g. Herpes Simplex or Warts in the area
  • Compromised Immune System ie. Lupus
  • Metal plates & pins
  • Pace maker/ cardiac problems

If I am unsure I always ask for a Doctor’s note before treatment can start.

I also don’t treat certain areas such as: mucus membranes e.g. inner ear, inner nostril,eyelashes, hairs in moles, unless I have a Dr.s note.
