The History of Electrolysis

The History Of Electrology

We have been trying to get rid of unwanted hair for a long time.

Before 1875 electrolysis did not exist. Many temporary methods of dealing with unwanted hair where employed from pumice and quicklime to elaborate potions and poultices, but the results were always disappointing to the users. The hair came back!

Then in 1875, Dr. Charles Michel, an ophthalmologist, was experimenting with ways to remove the painful ingrown eyelashes of his patients. He would insert a fine wire, which was attached to a battery, into the hair follicle and then release a small amount of current. He found that the current which flowed into the hair follicle destroyed the hair forever.

Electrolysis had been born, and the thousands of men and women plagued with unwanted hair could now be helped. What once appeared to be a hopeless situation now had a solution.

From then until the present , electrolysis had stood the test of time. It is fully accepted by medical doctors and is recognized as the only safe and effective form of permanent hair removal.
