All areas of the body have a covering of hair with the exception of the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet. Hair grows in cycles. On the average, a hair is active anywhere from 2 to 6 years and then rests for several months before repeating its cycle.
Superfluous hair has been a secret problem to men and women since the beginning of time. If you have unwanted hair, you are not alone, for about 90% of men and women this is a problem and have had to cope. There are many reasons for the growth of superfluous hair (hereditary or glandular problem; it may appear after illnesses or operations or as result of medications...)
Tweezing, shaving, waxing and the use of depilatory cream are only temporary methods of hair removal and can actually stimulate the hair root so that it increases the strength and quantity of regrowth. Even the fine hair coarsens and darkens to become problem hair. If you have been shaving or otherwise tampering with the hair for years, electrolysis treatment can still be effective.
The creators of Apilus have designed a state-of-the-art computerized electrolysis machine that limits the level of destruction within the hair follicle, targeting only germ cells. This consequently protects the skin and prevents new hair growth. It is not possible to complete the sterilization of the hair follicle in one treatment. There will be some regrowth, therefore repeated and regular treatments are necessary.
As treatment progresses, the hair cell is gradually weakened and the hair becomes finer. When complete sterilization is achieved, the follicle closes and thus the hair cannot grow again. Hair can be safely removed from all parts of the body except the inner ear and inner nostril.
