Electrolysis in Halifax Means Safe, Permanent Hair Removal

At Brooks Electrolysis, we are committed to providing a safe, professional and confidential service for all clients. One thing we always do is tell clients how to deal with the after-effects of electrolysis.

The effects of electrolysis are temporary. You may or may not experience redness and swelling, which is a natural reaction to electrolysis. You also may or may not experience scabbing of the treated follicle, which could last up to a week. However, post-treating the area will greatly reduce healing time.

With that said, here are the DOs and DON’Ts of electrolysis post-treatment:

  • Apply a cold compress to the treated area to soothe and reduce any redness and swelling that may occur.
  • Disinfect the treated area with alcohol or witch hazel for 1 to 5 days. We recommend twice a day for the first 2 or 3 days, then once a day for the next 2 or 3 days.
  • Apply an antibacterial cream (i.e. POLYSPORIN® cream) after you've disinfected the area to promote healing.
  • Epsom salt baths will also promote healing to the treated area (i.e. bikini line, legs, buttocks) and is also soothing and relaxing to the body.
  • Wear sunscreen and a hat if you're going to be exposed to the sun for any length of time.

  • Expose the treated area to UV rays and tanning beds for 24 to 48 hours after treatment. For the face, we recommend longer.
  • Squeeze pustules.
  • Irritate the treated area (i.e. tight clothing, skin scrubbers).
  • Touch the treated area.
