How much discomfort is there with electrolysis?

Depending on the area of the skin being treated and the settings used, the discomfort level will vary. Discomfort is also a subjective thing and will vary depending on the patient’s own pain threshold. Electrolysis can feels like a sting that is quickly over and most people tolerate it well.

Patients can request pain relief if necessary. We can offer a variety of options from topical anaesthetic to prescription medication.
