About Tao Electrolysis

For over 130 years, electrolysis has been and remains the only recognised 100% permanent hair removal method. This technique permanently destroys germinative cells responsible for hair growth, thanks to the insertion of a fine probe in the hair follicle and the application of a current adjusted to the type of hair and the treated area. The creators of Apilus were convinced that by integrating modern technology, electrolysis could become a much more effective and comfortable technique. They designed a computer-assisted system that concentrates and controls the extent of the destruction in the hair follicle, targeting only the germinative cells and thus preventing new hair growth. Contact us to make an appointment or for more information.

Your therapist will use a sterile disposable probe to enter the hair follicle (this you will not feel as the follicle is a natural opening in the skin). Then the current is passed down the follicle, cutting off the blood supply that feeds the hair. The current destroys some or all of the growing cells of the hair.

Your therapist will advise you at your free consultation approximately how long the treatment will take.
