Electrolysis - Glenys Steed Beauty Therapy

Keywords: Electrolysis

Electrolysis is a time-tested method that was invented over 100 years ago to remove irritating, in-grown eyelash hairs. Most areas of the body can be treated with electrolysis, including eyebrows, face, thighs, abdomen, breasts and legs.

Sometimes a slight reddening of the skin occurs during or immediately after treatment, but this will only last a short time.

The Blend Method

The blend is a combination of shortwave diathermy and galvanic electrolysis. It utilises the best of each current.

The function of the diathermy current is to produce thermal heat to warm the lye that is produced within the follicle by galvanic current.

Therefore the destructive force of the blend is heated lye (sodium hydoxide).

The effect of heating the lye speeds up the chemical reaction taking place in the follicle making it a more destructive and efficient way of rendering the follicle inactive and weakening it's ability to reproduce hairgrowth.

Regrowth with this method is minimal.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) - Glenys Steed Beauty Therapy

It is becoming widely recognised for its ability to improve skin conditions such as fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, broken blood vessels, uneven skin tone and much more. The size of an IPL optical window is much larger than the laser equivalent and therefore covers a much larger area per flash. The beauty of IPL treatments is they can be performed safely on the face, neck, chest, or any other part of the body.

Sonophoresis - Glenys Steed Beauty Therapy

The technology of using sound or “sonic” waves as a form of treatment has been around for a number of years, however this has been largely in the area of therapeutic treatment of deeper tissues by Physiotherapists using ultrasound. This “permeabilisation” of the skin allows a far higher absorption of the active ingredients the therapist is attempting to infuse.
