Permanent Hair Removal in NYC


Susan Davina has a very gentle touch, and her many permanent hair removal in NYC clients can attest to their great results and comfort level. Even if you have had laser, you know that it only reduces the hair. Electrolysis (permanent hair removal) can completely eliminate any unwanted, excess hair. So if you want to safely remove hair permanently, call me and come in for a free consultation.

Getting rid of unwanted hair especially facial hair is the number one priority of many women worldwide. Having noticeable facial hair especially on the chin or upper lip usually causes great embarrassment and can affect your self-esteem.

Both women and men are turning to permanent facial hair removal methods because they are getting tired of the daily routine involved in having a clear smooth face. The usual methods for removing facial hairs are plucking, waxing, and using depilatory creams. The advantage of these methods is that you can do them yourself. The disadvantage is that it is not permanent. Week after week the same procedure has to be done to ensure a hair free face.

The 2 most popular methods for permanent facial hair removal are electrolysis and hair laser removal. Both of these are most effective if they are done by professionals.

Electrolysis is using electrical current to destroy the hair follicle. Basically, a needle is inserted into each hair and then a current is passed through the skin into the hair follicle, damaging it. If done correctly the hair will be taken out without any resistance- meaning, you won't feel it coming out.
Electrolysis is very effective, but it is painful. You may feel a sting every time a new hair is done. The intensity of the sting will depend on your pain threshold.

Electrolysis is currently the only method that is FDA approved as permanent removal of hair. There are several disadvantages to this permanent facial hair removal method because it targets only one hair at a time. Only small areas at a time can be worked on the face. In one session only the upper lip may be worked on and even then all the hair may not get taken out.

To clear a specific area for example the upper lip will take a very long time because multiple treatments will be needed to destroy the individual hair follicle. You will have to go for treatments very often sometimes 2-3 times a week or more to clear a specific area. It is very time-consuming.

Laser Hair Removal
The laser uses light waves to target the pigment in the hair follicle. A hand-held device is placed on the area to be treated. The laser then passes through the skin and damages the melanin in the follicle.
This method of permanent facial hair removal is also very effective. Also, the pain felt is very minimal compared to electrolysis. Some of the more advanced lasers such as the Light Sheer have a cool tip so that the pain is very little if at all.

Currently, laser hair removal is FDA approved as permanent hair reduction. The number one advantage of using the laser for permanent facial hair removal is that an area of skin is treated with each laser shot. So instead of one hair being treated- up to 100 hairs can be treated in one shot.
 Hair laser removal is perfect for the larger area of the face- the cheeks, sideburns etc. The whole upper lip, for example, can be treated in 15 minutes. Treatments are also spaced initially 4 weeks apart and then 6-8 weeks apart. After the skin is hair free you may have to go for a maintenance treatment once or twice a year.
