We use only the finest and most advanced electrolysis technology.
As technology has advanced, so has the effectiveness and safety of treatments.Precision Hair Removal and Skin Care has invested in the most advanced technology and electrology equipment. This includes the Apilus Platinum and Apilus xCell, to ensure that your treatment is as comfortable, safe and effective as possible.
Apilus Platinum, the best and most gentle way to 100% permanent hair removal.
Thanks to modern technology, the Apilus Platinum devices have revolutionized electrolysis treatments, making it possible to achieve better permanent hair removal results and more comfortable therapy. The creators of Apilus have designed a state-of-the-art computerized system that limits the level of destruction within the hair follicle, targeting only germ cells. Consequently, this protects the skin and actually prevents new hair growth.
Already in use in thousands of Apilus Centers throughout the world, including Precision Hair Removal and Skin Care, Apilus offers advanced technology with proven effectiveness. These systems have demonstrated time and time again that Apilus delivers more effective and more comfortable treatments, as well as much more rapid and more 100% permanent results that any other technique.
The world-exclusive design of the Apilus Platinum uses an ultra-rapid 27 MHz frequency that is twice as fast as any other epilator. Thanks to multiple, wide-ranging modes (PicoFlash, Synchro, PicoBlend, and EvoluBlend), it is able to specifically target and coagulate the cells responsible for hair growth, thereby providing effective and comfort never seen before in permanent hair removal.
Because of its powerful circuits and combination of radio frequency action and galvanic currents, the Apilus Platinum offers professional electrologists pinpoint precision capabilities and optimal settings that deliver the results you seek. You can finally say goodbye to unwanted hair, in any and all areas of face and body.
How electrolysis works
A small electric current is transmitted by a fine, sterile probe (or needle) directly into the natural opening of the hair follicle, destroying the dermal papilla, the matrix, and an area called “the bulge”, all of which cause hair to grow and regenerate.
The stages of hair growth
Anagen is the active phase of the hair. The cells in the root of the hair are dividing rapidly. A new hair is formed and pushes the club hair (a hair that has stopped growing or is no longer in the anagen phase) up the follicle and eventually out.
During the anagen phase the hair grows about 1 cm every 28 days. Scalp hair stays in this active phase of growth for two to six years. Some people have difficulty growing their hair beyond a certain length because they have a short active phase of growth. On the other hand, people with very long hair have a long active phase of growth. The hair on the arms, legs, eyelashes, and eyebrows have a very short active growth phase of about 30 to 45 days, explaining why they are so much shorter than scalp hair.
The catagen phase is a transitional stage and about 3% of all hairs are in this phase at any time. This phase lasts for about two to three weeks. Growth stops and the outer root sheath shrinks and attaches to the root of the hair. This is the formation of what is known as a club hair.
Telogen is the resting phase and usually accounts for 6% to 8% of all hairs. This phase lasts for about 100 days for hairs on the scalp and longer for hairs on the eyebrow, eyelash, arm, and leg. During this phase, the hair follicle is completely at rest and the club hair is completely formed.
Electrolysis is most effective during the Anagen phase of hair growth.
Hairs need to be visible – in order for the electrologist to be able to successfully treat each individual hair, the hair needs to be visible. The electrologist needs to insert a thin, needle-like probe into the hair follicle before applying the electrical current.
Salt water based solution needs to be present in the follicle – Electrolysis works by applying an electrical current into the salt/water based solution that is found at the hair follicle. The reaction that follows is what disables the hair follicle from being able to grow hair in the future.
When both the above factors are present, electrolysis can be performed. Typically the anagen phase is the only phase where this occurs.
