Before & After/FAQ's


Electrolysis is recognized by the FDA  as the ONLY effective method of PERMANENT hair removal available today. Even with all the technological advances, electrolysis remains the only method that can treat all types of hair, regardless of color or strength. 

Some people erroneously believe that electrolysis in an antiquated treatment. but the truth is that this treatment has been popular for over 150 years because it does provides permanent results. Electrolysis should be the first thing people do to rid themselves of unwanted facial and body hair. No need to waste time and money on temporary methods such as waxing, tweezing, threading, and even lasers which are not permanent according to the FDA. The fact is, you'll be spending time and money on those methods for the rest of your life when electrolysis is your permanent answer. Invest in yourself , you're worth it!

Q. Do I need to remove or shave hair before treatment?

No, with electrolysis, the hair needs to be visible and above the surface of the skin, but the hairs only need to be about 1/8th of an inch long. Please do not wax or tweeze for at least two to three weeks prior to treatment. Please do not shave for at least two to thrdays before treatments. 

Q. Is electrolysis painful?

Treatment can be regulated to make sure that clients experience as little discomfort as possible. To displace the myths, most clients are pleasantly surprised at how little discomfort there truly is with electrolysis. 

Q. How often will I need to go and for how long?

 Patience and consistency are the keys to success. Depending on the amount of hair to be treated and the rate of regrowth, most clients will need a treatment at least once every week or two. Treatment is very individualized according to the clients’ needs. Treatments become spaced further apart and for less duration as the hairs respond.  

Q. What areas can be treated?

Hairline, eyebrows, cheeks, chin, ears, upper and lower lip, sideburns, throat, breasts, chests, shoulders, arms, underarms, abdomens, upper and lower back, legs, feet, *bikini line, *female clients only… sorry guys. 

Q. How is the treatment administered?

We use state of the art electrolysis equipment with a round tipped surgical stainless steel probe to apply a small amount of heat and or electric current to hair follicles using a fine round-tipped probe treating each hair individually. Once the hair is treated, it is then removed. 

Q. Can I go about my day after treatment?

Everyone has their own sensitivity but most people experience some minor redness which usually dissipates within an hour or so. Many people come in on their lunch hour then go back to work, or stop at the grocery store or are off to their children's sporting events.

My experience with Rhonda Lee at Associated Electrolysis in Yarmouth, Maine, was excellent. She is knowledgeable, takes great care with her technique, and maintains professional discretion. I have been particularly impressed with the sensitivity she has with the methods utilized in her work. She makes it as easy as possible.
