Which Areas Can Be Treated?

Treatment Areas

Click any treatment area below to learn how the area is treated and its most common appointment schedule.

Face and Neck

Chin and Neck

These are common areas for unwanted hair, especially for women. Hairs on the chin and neck are sensitive to free-floating testosterone and may become thicker due to the presence of this hormone. The chin and neck can contain coarse dark hairs, as well as light-colored “peach fuzz” of varying thickness and length. While hair on the chin and neck can be embarrassing, there’s good news: Both areas are easily treated with electrolysis!

The coarse, or terminal, hairs of the chin and neck are often stronger due to previous tweezing, waxing or shaving. These temporary hair removal procedures should be discontinued because they are incompatible with electrolysis.

For best results, initial appointments should be made weekly to keep up with the hair growth cycles and to treat the hairs when they are weakest. Over time, appointments can be spaced out for maintenance purposes until the hair no longer regrows.

Upper/Lower Lip

The areas around the lips are the most common for unwanted hair growth and, as with the chin and neck, the hair of the outer portions of the upper lip are sensitive to free-floating testosterone and may be coarse in some women.

Also as with the chin and neck, the hairs around the lips are commonly tweezed, waxed or shaved. These temporary hair removal procedures should be discontinued because they are incompatible with electrolysis.

Due to nerve endings overlapping at the mid-line of the body and the thinness of the skin around the lips, the lip area can be somewhat sensitive. Thankfully, IBC employs only the Apilus Platinum, the most comfortable epilator on the market. To further minimize any discomfort, we use only insulated probes and we employ accupressure during the treatment to cancel out any minor pain.

Initially, appointments for the lip areas are typically weekly or bi-weekly.


The eyebrows enhance the eye and “frame the windows of the soul” — so it’s important to get them right! The ideal brow begins at the inner corner of the eye, peaks over the pupil, and ends at or just past the outer edge of the eye.

Because eye tissue tends to sag or droop as we age, it is best to shape the eyebrow by removing the hairs between and below the brow and leave as much hair as possible above the brow, giving the brow height and enhancing the eyes for years to come.

The hairs of the eyebrow respond fairly quickly to proper electrolysis.  Therefore, prior to treatment, each hair (yes!) is discussed with the client to ensure proper shaping.  The client holds a mirror during the treatment process and provides constant feedback to the electrologist.

Since the skin beneath the eyebrows is thin and sensitive, some brief swelling is common.  This swelling slows down the shaping process, so several appointments are necessary to complete the brows.  Initially, appointments should be made weekly until the brows are cleared of hair, and thereafter spaced out for maintenance purposes until the hair no longer regrows.


As most men and some women age, hair can form on their ears.  As with the chin, neck and lips, the hair on the ears is sensitive to free-floating testosterone and other androgens that promote hair growth.  Shaving, clipping and tweezing are temporary remedies — but often cannot keep pace with the continued growth.  Electrolysis is the only permanent way to relieve this problem.

For best results, appointments should be weekly to keep up with the hair growth cycles and to treat the hairs when they are weakest.



Clients frequently choose to have electrolysis in the underarm area because the hairs are coarse and shaving or waxing can cause an uncomfortable rash.  During puberty, this area experiences more hair growth because the hair receptors here are sensitive to hormones called androgens that promote hair growth.

Waxing or shaving of the underarms is common, and can sometimes cause rashes and pigmentation.  These temporary treatments should be discontinued as they are incompatible with electrolysis.  As the skin starts to regenerate itself, in most cases the pigmentation developed by waxing or shaving will fade with time.

For best results, appointments should be made biweekly to keep up with the hair growth cycles so as to treat the hairs when they are weakest.


Many people, especially men, have hair on their backs that they’d like to have permanently removed.  The hairs of the back are terminal hairs and are coarser than most other hairs of the body.  Whether you have a small patch or an entire back of hair, electrolysis is the only permanent way to relieve you of this problem.

Waxing and other temporary treatments should be discontinued as they are incompatible with electrolysis.

For best results, appointments should be made in weekly increments to keep up with the hair growth cycles and to treat the hairs when they are weakest.


Often clients have electrolysis on the bikini area because they are tired of shaving or waxing which creates a rash and/or ingrown hairs.  Many women find that having hair in this area is unsightly, especially when wearing a swimsuit.

Like the back, pubic hairs are terminal hairs that are coarser and more deeply rooted.  It is important to keep on a strict schedule in order to treat the hair in its early stages when it is weakest.  For best results, appointments should be made biweekly.

Breasts and Chest

The breasts and chest are common areas for unwanted hair growth, especially around the nipple/areola area.  Women are very distressed about this growth, but surprisingly a majority of women experience it.

During your treatment, it is important to remember not to tweeze or wax this hair as it will make it thicker and stronger.

Initially it is important to keep on a regular biweekly schedule, as the hairs are weakest when they first start to grow and electrolysis is most effective at this time.


Many clients have hair on their stomachs, especially the area between the navel and bikini line.  Whether you have a small strip or a large area, electrolysis is the only permanent way to relieve you of this problem.

Initially it is important to keep on a regular weekly schedule, as the hairs are weakest when they first start to grow and electrolysis is most effective at this time.

Most women have unwanted hair on their legs — usually more on their lower legs, but often both upper and lower legs are problematic.  Shaving and waxing are often used to manage the hair but these are only temporary solutions.  Electrolysis is the only permanent way to relieve you of this unwanted hair.

Many women and some men have unwanted hair on their arms.  Since they are often visible, dark, thick and/or long, arm hair often causes embarrassment.  When the hair is removed, the arms look thinner and cleaner.

Regardless of the area, a series of treatments is required to completely and permanently clear it of hair.  In part, this is due to the fact that at any given time each hair will be in either a growth or dormant stage.  In growth stages the hair follicle contains moisture, which improves the efficacy of the electrolysis treatment.  During the few weeks that a hair is dormant, treatments are less effective.  The length of the treatment series and the duration of each appointment are highly individual and must be determined by examination of the area.

Generally, if the treatments are scheduled according to the clinic’s recommendation, and there is not a hormone imbalance, or medications or medical conditions which would promote hair growth, the treatment series typically ranges from six months to two years.

Does it hurt?

Most clients find that they are pleasantly surprised with how comfortable the treatment  is at our clinic. This is because we use the world-exclusive design of the Apilus® Platinum™  and  Apilus Xcell  that use an ultrarapid 27 MHz frequency that is twice as fast as any other epilator. Thanks to its new hair removal modes performed with this 27 MHz frequency  it is able to specifically target and coagulate the cells responsible for hair growth, thereby providing effectiveness and comfort never before seen in permanent hair removal!

The follicle is a natural opening in the skin where we smoothly slide a sterile probe besides the hair, into the follicle.  It does not pierce your skin.

In areas that are more sensitive (ie. the upper lip) we sometimes recommended the use of a topical anesthetic cream, which will be discussed with you during the your consultation. Most clients find that they manage perfectly without it.

Hair Growth Cycle

Understanding the hair growth cycle

Every hair follicle on the body is at some stage of the hair growth cycle.

Some follicles are producing hair, whilst others are in a resting stage and not producing hair. We need the follicles to be in the growth phase as this reveals its position so we are able to treat the follicle effectively.

Therefore a course of treatments is often required to clear the area of all unwanted hair…. permanently.

Hair grows in cycles of various phases:

Anagen phase

Anagen is the active growth phase of hair follicles during which the root of the hair is dividing rapidly, adding to the hair shaft.This is when the hair is visible above the skin and is still attached to the papilla.

The papilla of a follicle contains many blood vessels that supply nutrients to nourish  the growing hair.  This hair growth Anagen phase is ideal for electrolysis treatments because since it is still attached to the papilla we will cauterize  the papilla and prevent any new growth. This stage usually lasts for about 2-3 weeks and occurs for both facial and body hair.

Catagen phase

The Catagen phase is a very short transition stage that occurs at the end of the Anagen phase.  The root of the hair shrinks towards the surface of the skin and the hair stops growing, and then falls out.

Telogen phase : This is the final stage of hair growth.  The hair is neither growing nor developing and it is no longer attached to the papilla. This stage is fairly unpredictable and can last for any amount of time ranging from a few days to a few years.


The hair’s follicle is only present and susceptible to treatment during the first and perhaps the second stage of growth. If a hair is treated during the last phase of growth the effort is wasted because there isn’ t a follicle there to treat.

Unfortunately there is no way to know what phase of growth the individual hairs are in.

This is why it’s important to return for treatments frequently. If a hair is treated unsuccessfully once and then is given too much time to grow again it will once again pass in to its final (telogen) stage where treatment is ineffective.

Preparation for the Consultation

We need to see the amount of hair.

In order to assess the area, we need to be able to see the amount of hair, so we can advise the best treatment plan. Therefore please allow your hair to grow to 2mm or longer, by the day of the Consultation.

For hair removal treatment on a mole, we require a letter from you GP or skin specialist to say that they have inspected the mole and that it is not malignant and is suitable for electrolysis treatment.

If hair removal treatment is required for a person under 18 years old, we require a letter from their parent/guardian to give permission for us to perform the treatment.


Preparing for Treatment

To maximize the effectiveness of each treatment, please do the following before each appointment.

  • Apply moisturizing cream on the area to be treated every day, twice a day, for the 7 days leading up to each appointment.  Electrolysis is most effective when the hair follicles are well hydrated, so we cannot stress this point enough!
  • Drink plenty of water every day, not just before you come to the office.  If it is very cold or hot outside, water with electrolytes is recommended.
  • Avoid caffeine on the day of and the day before your appointment.  Caffeine can stimulate nerve endings, making you more sensitive to treatment.
  • Avoid rushing prior to your appointment which can make you tense and nervous.  Arrive at the clinic early to allow yourself ample time to relax.
  • If you are very sensitive, take aspirin, or any other painkillers prior to your treatment to decrease your sensitivity.
  • If your treatment area includes the eyebrow, please remove your contact lenses before the treatment.
  • The following products are contraindicated for use with electrolysis, and their use should be discontinued prior to each appointment by the periods given: Accutane (3 months), Retin A (3 weeks).  
  • Bathe prior to your appointment as needed to ensure a hygienic treatment area.

During Your Appointment, before electrolysis begins, the skin will be cleansed with an antibacterial lotion.

Post-Treatment Care

After an electrolysis treatment, proper hygiene is essential to help your skin heal.  This begins in our clinic, where we perform cataphoresis to soothe the skin and provide antibacterial protection.

After you leave the clinic, it is best to avoid touching or aggravating the treated area for at least 24-48 hours.  Depending on your individual skin type, you may see some redness and a small amount of swelling after treatment.  Some people may also notice some small crusts over treated hair follicles.  This is normal.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call us.

To hasten the healing process, please follow these post-treatment care instructions:

  • Wash your hands thoroughly before touching the treated area.
  • Use a cotton pad to dab the treated area with Hydrogen Peroxide twice a day for two days.
  • Apply antibacterial cream twice a day for two or three days or as needed.
  • Apply sunscreen liberally to the treated area, especially if you have sensitive and/or pigmented skin.
  • Avoid any friction.
  • Avoid contact with oily, perfumed or alcohol-based products.
  • Avoid tanning, exercise, hot tubs, etc. for at least 24 hours as these activities can increase swelling.
  • Keep the treated area clean with a mild skin cleanser.
  • For electrolysis treatment on the face, try not to apply make-up for at least 24 hours.  If you must wear make-up, mineral make-up is your best option.  First apply an antibiotic ointment.

We invite you to come by for a free consultation and a sample treatment to learn more about our  clinic here in Dublin. You have nothing to lose but  unwanted hair!

A Unique technology for faster results.

We use the latest Technology Epilator, “Apilus xCell” and Apilus Platinum. These machines combine artificial intelligence and they can input the treated area, the thickness of the hair on each client so we can give much more effective treatment and obtain much faster results!

Ultrarapid Frequency
The world-exclusive design of the Apilus xCell  an ultrarapid 27.12 MHz and Platinum Pure 27 MHz frequency to permanently and rapidly destroy all types of hair. Thus since they work twice as fast as any other epilator, and are  able to coagulate in a very concentrated fashion the cells responsible for hair growth, thereby providing incomparable effectiveness and comfort.

Unrivalled Comfort
Thanks to its ultrarapid 27.12 MHz frequency, the PicoFlash mode of the Apilus xCell offers comfort the likes of which have yet to be seen in permanent hair removal.

100% Effective Treatment
To this day, electrolysis remains the only 100% effective permanent hair removal method for all hair and skin types. Other hair removal methods currently available on the market, such as laser, work from outside, detecting the hair pigment (melanin). Thus, they require a strong contrast between the skin and the hair in order to reduce porosity. Electrolysis, on the other hand, attacks the hair follicle from the inside, leading to the direct destruction of the cells responsible for hair growth, while protecting the skin’s surface. Therefore, whether your hair is blond, black, white or red, and your skin black, swarthy or olive, the Apilus Platinum and Apilus  Xcell will always deliver 100% effective result.

Electrolysis For Teens

It’s not easy being a teenager!  Hormones are kicking in and bodies are changing rapidly, and unfortunately many teens find themselves embarrassed or humiliated by unwanted hair.  Many teens turn to temporary hair removal methods like shaving, waxing and plucking.  However, these methods are short-lived and may even cause hair to grow back darker and thicker.  They can even lead to painful ingrown hairs – ouch!  Electrolysis is a permanent hair removal solution that is safe for all ages.

Some parents may have concerns about their child undergoing permanent hair removal at a young age.  Our suggestion to any concerned parent is to talk about hair removal options with your teen and discuss which areas of the body they are most embarrassed about.  The ideal time to have this conversation is before they have used any temporary hair removal techniques.  Once you understand your teen’s concerns, schedule an appointment with us to discuss treatment options.

We offer a free consultation and 15 minute electrolysis session for any new teenage client.  This is a perfect opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns with a professional electrologist.  This also gives your teen the opportunity to see how electrolysis feels and confirm whether he or she is willing to commit to regular sessions.  It is essential that he or she is motivated and willing to commit to a regular schedule to achieve the best results.

It is important for teenagers to feel good about themselves.  Imagine the time and energy a teen could save over the course of their life if they were able to permanently remove their unwanted hair so early!

Electrolysis For Transgender People

We have extensive experience working with transgender clients and understand the need for comfortable and effective hair removal treatments.  We can treat hair on any part of the body and we will work with you to create a treatment plan that fits perfectly with your own particular needs and schedule.

Most transgender clients choose to begin their treatment on their face. Electrolysis is the ideal hair removal method for facial hair because it is effective on all hair and skin types, and it is the only hair removal method that is truly permanent.

At Advanced Electrolysis Clinic our state of the art machines allow us to treat more hair per session, decreasing the amount of time needed to complete your hair removal goals. Also, to ensure the best possible result, we use only insulated probes when treating stubborn hair in the facial area to protect your skin and provide the most comfortable experience possible.

For those clients who intend to undergo gender confirmation surgery(GCS), treating the genital area prior to surgery can be a critical step towards completing their medical transition.

We are familiar with the surgical procedures that transgender clients under-go as part of their transition process and can provide guidance on the areas that should be treated prior to your surgery.

While some GCS surgeons use techniques that do not required patients to permanently remove hair in the genital region prior to surgery, it should be noted that it is not possible to remove hairs in this area after the surgery has been completed.

If you identify as transgender and are looking for a tried and trusted permanent hair removal solution then we welcome and encourage you to contact us today so that we can help you to reach your hair removal goals.
