Aftercare & Side Effects of Electrolysis

What are the side effects of Electrolysis?

In general, there are very few side effects of electrolysis. Following your treatment there may be some redness in the area for a few days and some areas will heal with a scab. But generally once healing has taken place there will be almost nothing to see.

What aftercare is necessary?

You will be advised of the specific aftercare at the time of your treatment. But usually the area needs to be kept clean and dry for approximately 7 days:

  • No moisturisers or body lotions in the area;
  • No swimming in public swimming pools;
  • No sun exposure for approximately 7 days.

You will need to take extra care with sun exposure for a few months after treatment. It would be advised to use a good factor 50 SPF on the treated area.
