Electrolysis Hair Removal Treatment for Burnaby
Many men and women in Burnaby struggle with unwanted hair that grows back faster than they can manage to deal with it, and time-consuming hair removal methods like shaving, waxing and tweezing are not realistic options. For these clients, we always recommend a more permanent method of hair removal. At Piel Mia Skincare Studio, we are Burnaby’s trusted source for electrolysis treatments. Electrolysis is a process where tiny needles are placed alongside the hair follicle and send a small wave of electrical current that permanently alters the structure of the hair follicle so that it no longer produces hair.
Electrolysis is a safe and medically tested process with no harmful side effects. The results are very effective and though the process can produce a small amount of discomfort, it does not last long and you will be left with permanently removed hair! No more struggling with time-consuming razors and harmful hair removal creams that just won’t work. Investing in a permanent hair removal treatment really pays off!
Our Burnaby team of professional estheticians are licensed workers in their field with a lot of experience working with many different hair removal techniques. They are skilled at identifying the best type of treatment for each customer. No two customers are the same, and that is why we always perform a thorough consultation where we can identify your skin type, hair density and your sensitivity level to best create a treatment plan for you. Our salons are always strictly cleaned and sanitized to ensure the safest, most relaxing salon experience for our clients.

Some Helpful Aftercare Tips:
To ensure the you get the most out of your electrolysis treatment, consider trying some of these helpful aftercare techniques at home:
- Apply a soothing toner: Witch hazel, for example, does not contain any alcohol or harsh irritants. This will naturally cleanse and soothe the area without irritating it.
- Avoid exercise: After an electrolysis treatment, your hair follicles can be susceptible to infection since they are technically “open” for up to 24 hours. It is best to avoid any sweating since sweat can cause bacteria to get stuck in hair follicles.
- Take a relaxing bath: A soothing oatmeal bath with naturally calm and moisturize the skin while cleansing it.
- Avoid any harsh exfoliants: Do not use abrasive skin products for 24 hours as these can irritate the skin.
