Needle epilation or electroepilation is a procedure for permanent hair removal. It works with high-frequency current pulses that permanently destroy the hair roots and is particularly suitable for treating small and sensitive areas.
After the electroepilation, small crusts and skin irritations may occur. The best way to prevent skin irritation is by moisturising the skin sufficiently in the days before the treatment.
Since the skin must be protected from direct sunlight after needle epilation, winter is the ideal season for the treatment. In the warm months, a sunscreen with a high sun protection factor must be used.
Needle epilation can only destroy those hair roots that are currently in the growth phase. Therefore, on average between 4 and 6 sessions are necessary.
The needle or electroepilation is a method for permanent hair removal. This is because the hair roots are destroyed during the treatment. As a result, no more hair grows back.
Compared to other hair removal methods, needle epilation can also remove light and greying hair, as well as tanned skin and darker skin types. Therefore, this method is particularly effective for removing annoying hairs.
In needle epilation, a probe is guided precisely along the hair shaft to the hair root. There it emits an electrical impulse that scleroses the hair root and thus destroys it.
