More Information About ElectrolysisElectrolysis - The only proven method * Conventional Electrolysis
Conventional electrolysis is a process in which a needle is inserted into the hair shaft and then an electrical current is passed through the hair follicle. Although hair itself is dry, below the surface of the skin it is immersed in a watery environment with a high mineral content. The electrical current from the needle causes a chemical reaction and turns the water and salt in the hair follicle into sodium hydroxide (NaOH), which is an extremely corrosive alkali. If you were to put just a drop of pure sodium hydroxide on your skin, it would instantly burn a hole right through. This sodium hydroxide dissolves the hair follicle and the papilla causing a complete and permanent destruction of hair growth. Even though this is a highly effective procedure, it is also has many drawbacks. First of all, the insertion of a needle into the skin over and over again can be quite painful. Treatment with a needle also requires a high degree of skill, the technician must guide the needle very accurately to reach the bottom of the hair follicle. Penetrating the skin with a needle also increases chances of infection. Perhaps most intimidating of all is the cost; electrolysis treatments are on average $60-$100 per hour and require at least one session a week for a period of several months to over a year.
DRAWBACKS: Expensive, Painful, Inconvenient, Risk of Infection.
* Battery Powered Pen-Type Electrolysis
This type of electrolysis device is typically inexpensive and is designed for personal use in the home. It is quite convenient but usually less effective than conventional electrolysis or the Vector System due to its limited battery power. It is also subject to a number of the drawbacks of conventional needle electrolysis such as pain and risk of infection.
DRAWBACKS: Not proven effective due to inadequate power, Painful, Risk of infection.
* Vector Electrolysis - A Better Way!
As it turns out, it is unnecessary to insert a needle to produce sodium hydroxide in the hair follicle. The Vector machine works by simply grasping the hair with tweezers and applying a highly conductive gel with silver chloride. Without the electrically conductive gel this process would not work, as hair cannot conduct electricity. Applying silver chloride gel to the hair above the skin allows electrical current to pass over the non-conductive portion down into the hair follicle. The Vector machine gives you incredible ease of operation and with the same results as regular needle electrolysis! Everyone knows how to use tweezers and you will be able to start using the Vector machine in just minutes! Vector is also registered with the FDA.
DRAWBACKS: Slight pain, One time moderate investment.
Conclusion: Yes, as with anything you purchase, there are some slight drawbacks with the Vector system. However, in reviewing the hair removal methods available, we feel Vector is the best choice for lasting hair removal.
Radio frequency devices work on the concept that radio frequency (RF) energy gets transmitted by the electronic tweezers down the hair shaft. RF energy is similar to the energy produced in a microwave which causes a heating effect. The heat will dehydrate and coagulate the hair bulb and the papilla. Unfortunately, hair cannot conduct current and therefore radio frequency (an alternating current) will not move or flow down the hair shaft. There will be no dehydration or coagulation of the hair shaft. There is some heating of the actual hair that is in contact with the tweezers due to friction heat caused by spinning water molecules. Heat can potentially travel down the hair shaft but none of it will actually reach the hair follicle. This is due to the fact that these devices have an FDA assigned frequency of 27.12MHz and a power output of 1.5 Watts. This wattage is so low that it takes 60 seconds of RF energy to increase the temperature of the hair follicle by 2°F. Now consider the following; it takes at least 108°F to cause any kind of damage to the hair follicle. With the normal body temperature of 98°F, you will have to hold each hair for at least 5-6 minutes, one by one, to see any kind of result whatsoever. No one would ever make that kind of a time investment.
DRAWBACKS: Time consuming, Not proven effective due to inadequate power
Laser Hair Removal
While lasers are now a very effective method of hair removal, this method is not permanent and the treatment is very expensive. Here is some additional information you might want to know about lasers:
* Lasers only work on people with very light skin
* Lasers do not work on people with gray, red, or light hair
* Lasers can't be used on sensitive skin
* Laser treatment is very painful
* Lasers can't be used on areas with moles, freckles, or scars
In comparison, treatment with the Vector machine works on any individual is far less painful, and the results are permanent.
DRAWBACKS: Painful, Doesn't work on everyone, Doesn't work on all hair areas
Other Hair Removal Methods Have you tried using all kinds of different gadgets, razors, waxes, depilatories, and magic lotions and still have unwanted hair? The truth is, none of these methods are designed for permanent hair removal and will only leave you disappointed, as well as waste your time. The only proven method of permanent hair removal is electrolysis.
DRAWBACKS: Temporary, Time consuming, Ineffective, Expense adds up quickly over time.
