Oban Hair removal

Oban Electrolysis

Electrolysis is the only scientifically and medically approved method of permanent hair removal, developed in 1875 by an ophthalmologist. While some people opt for laser/ipl for temporary results everyone will still need electrolysis to complete their treatment. Most clients use electrolysis as a last resort they may have been waxing, tweezing, shaving or may have had poor electrolysis treatment. If you have spent more than a year trying to get rid of hair then the treatment you are using is not working. Only electrolysis by an experienced practitioner using efficient equipment good lighting and professional visual aids will get you the permanent results.

Is it Safe?- YES, electrolysis has been around for more than 100 years with no adverse side effects, if you have had electrolysis that has left marking this will have been due to a poor operator. Good electrologists are few and far between. Do your research before you go ahead.

Common areas that are treated-full face including eyebrows, ears, hairline. Most body areas bikini, breast (around nipples), underarms, stomach, back, arms, legs, toes, fingers. All consultations are free and confidential.
