Electrolysis (Apilus) hair removal

Electrolysis is a safe, effective and permanent method of hair removal. It is perfect for anyone who struggles with unwanted hair, whether it is caused by PCOS, hormonal imbalances, age, genetics, or other factors. At Naomi Waite Aesthetics, we utilize the Apilus xCell pro machine, which is the gold standard for electrolysis technology.

This amazing machine uses a high-frequency current that is targeted at the hair follicle. The current destroys the hair bulb, which is the source of growth for the hair. This means that once a hair has been treated, it will not grow back again.

The Apilus xCell pro is incredibly precise, meaning that it can target even the finest and thinnest hairs. This makes it ideal for treating sensitive areas, such as the face, underarms, and bikini area. The machine is also incredibly fast, so treatments can be completed in a timely manner.

One of the most impressive features of the Apilus xCell pro is its ability to be customized to each client’s individual needs. The machine can be set to different frequencies, and each hair can be treated according to its thickness, depth, and other factors. This customisation makes the treatment more effective and efficient.

At Naomi Waite Aesthetics, we are proud to utilize this advanced technology. Our professionals are trained to use the Apilus xCell pro to its fullest potential, ensuring that each client gets the best possible results. If you are interested in electrolysis, we encourage you to book a consultation with us to learn more about the treatment and how it can work for you.
