Galvanic Electrolysis, which is the
oldest form, is a chemical method that
utilizes a direct current to convert
normal body salt and water in the
follicle into a compound capable of
destroying the dermal papilla. The
chemical is produced only in the follicle
and does not affect any other area.
One probe or several probes working
simultaneously can be used during this
process. This heat cauterizes and destroys
the dermal papilla. One sterile probe is
used for this type of process.
Thermolysis, is a method that uses a high
frequency current to produce heat in
the area influenced by the current.
Two variations of Thermolysis are "Flash"
"Automatic." Thermolysis which uses a
split second impulse of current and
"Manual" Thermolysis which requires
several seconds at a lower intensity to
The Blend method combines both
currents together in the same probe.
Thermolysis enhances the action of the
galvanic method to produce a faster
process. Your electrologist will select the
