Enid has over 35 years’ experience in treating clients with electrolysis and is proud of the excellent reputation she has gained by helping clients resolve their concerns regarding superfluous hair.
Electrolysis involves the insertion of a very fine disposable sterile probe into the hair follicle. The follicle is a natural opening to the skin so the skin is not pierced. Using short wave diathermy, a small amount of heat is then skilfully released into the hair follicle. The only sensation felt is a small amount of heat at the base of the hair follicle. In some cases, chemical destruction in addition to heat is used, usually to treat curly hairs with distorted hair follicles. This is called Blend electrolysis. Enid will choose which method is best for you and your hair type.
As a result, any re-growth hairs are finer, weaker and paler and eventually all hairs are destroyed. The only after-effects of the treatment are a slight redness in the area (due to the action of the heat in the skin) and this usually subsides after a couple of hours. Aftercare preparations are applied to soothe and promote skin healing.
I finally plucked up the courage to have electrolysis on my bikini line 4 years ago. I always loved swimming and going to the beach but my bikini line made me embarrassed and reluctant to go. If I shaved I struggled with horrible ingrown hairs which made me miserable. I went to see Enid and she was fantastic. She talked me through the process and how long it was likely to take. She was very professional but at the same time relaxed, friendly and open so I didn't feel embarrassed. At the beginning, I had weekly, half-hour treatments and then as the hair started to clear the frequencies of appointments was reduced. I was so pleased with the results that I have now also had the darker hairs on my upper lip treated. The treatment has been amazing and I have regained my confidence, I wished I had done it years ago. Enid is very skilled and makes you feel comfortable throughout the entire process.
I was recommended to Enid Maunder some years ago and am delighted to write this testimonial to affirm that she is extremely professional in all circumstances.
She is friendly and gentle even when performing possible painful treatments like electrolysis permanent hair removal or waxing. A really delightful lady. I have no hesitation in recommending Enid for any of her treatments.
I have always been worried about having electrolysis but finally plucked up courage to book an appointment with Enid to have several coarse hairs removed from my chin. Over several weeks, Enid removed these very professionally and with minimum discomfort. I was so happy with the result that I went on to have the hair on my upper lip removed. However having a large age spot removed from my cheek really highlighted Enid’s skills in ‘advanced procedures using electrolysis’ and I am now blemish free. Just wish I had had this work done years earlier!
