Yes, electrolysis safely and permanently removes all types of hair from all skin tones. Electrolysis permanently destroys the growth cells of the hair follicle, preventing treated hairs from ever growing back through a series of treatments.
With the Desloges Method, when a normal treatment area is treated every 6 to 8 weeks, the hair should be eliminated within one year. Some hairs will be permanently gone each treatment, never to return. Some will come back finer and need a follow up treatment(s).
There is a myth that electrolysis is very painful. But for most people, today's methods don't cause a lot of pain, but it can hurt. If you find it too uncomfortable, we recommend using a topical anesthetic and Ibuprofen. At Jade, we also offer local anesthetic freezing, similar to your dentist, if interested please ask for more details.
The most common side effects for face work, if any, after an electrolysis session are tenderness, redness and some swelling. Scabs can also be a side effect for body treatments on areas like underarms and bikini-line. These side effects are all normal and temporary. If done improperly, electrolysis can cause infection and permanent scarring. Any questions or concerns you may have, can be addressed and assessed during your free consultation.
truSculpt 3D is the newest advancement in circumferential reduction and non-surgical body sculpting that offers up to 24 percent fat thickness reduction, as measured by ultrasound, in a single treatment. It is RF (radio frequency) technology that delivers deep heating energy to adipose tissue for body sculpting.
The provider will determine whether you are a candidate for truSculpt 3D during the consultation. Typically, appropriate patients have a BMI less than 30.
Yes, this treatment can be done on all skin types.
Treatment time depends on the areas treated. To treat an abdomen and both flanks (4 areas) will take about one hour.
Patients typically see results after one treatment. Some patients may elect to have a second treatment for final tweaks or for treatments on alternate areas.
The treatment is performed using a technique that requires the operator to lightly glide the handpiece over the area being treated. The temperature will slowly heat up and is very comfortable. Most patients comment that the procedure feels like a hot stone massage.
Yes, this is a noninvasive procedure and you can return to all normal activities immediately after the treatment.
There is no downtime or side effect after this treatment. The treatment area may feel tender following the treatment but this will resolve within a few days.
After the treatment, your body’s immune system will start to break down and flush out the fat cells that were treated leading to circumferential reduction. Everyone’s body does so at a different rate however, on average, people will see results around 6-8 weeks after the treatment and continuing improvement up to 3 months. Any questions or concerns you may have, can be addressed and assessed during your free consultation.
The Secret RF treatment is ideal for improving aging skin, photodamage, fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck, scars, acnes scars, skin quality and striae. The treatment is safe and effective, and suitable for all skin types and clients seeking skin revitalization.
During the treatment, you will feel a slight heating and some pressure on the treatment area. For most clients, the treatment is tolerable but your practitioner will work with you to maximize your comfort level. Prior to the procedure, your provider will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area to increase comfort during the treatment.
Clients typically need 2-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, to achieve optimal results. Most clients report seeing improvement after the first treatment however results are optimized 3 months after the last treatment.
Results vary based on the individual. To maintain results, maintenance treatments are recommended every 12-18 months.
After the treatment, you will be asked to refrain from putting anything on the treatment for 4 hours. We then recommend soothe cream and refraining from wearing make up for several hours. Any minor redness or swelling resulting from treatment will subside within 12-24 hours. After the treatment, you can expect to return to normal activities.
All skin types can be treated. Moles must be assessed by your physician to ensure they're safe for removal. We recommend a consultation with a Jade practitioner before booking an appointment.
Most lesions only require one treatment to completely remove it. You may have several areas on your body that require electrocautery treatments or multiple lesions to treat.
There will be some discomfort during the procedure, however numbing agents are used prior to beginning to help ease the level of pain you'll experience. The procedure for each lesion takes very little time before it's done, and that unwanted spot is gone before you know it! We recommend taking Tylenol twenty minutes before the removal to keep as calm and non-reactive as possible.
For smaller lesions, the initial healing time for the scab to naturally come off on its own should take only a 2-3 days post procedure, since the scabs are very shallow on the surface of the skin and are already formed/closed off the moment you are treated. Larger ones can take anywhere from 2-10 days, depending on the size and type of lesion to be removed. One of the biggest benefits to electrocautery procedures is that the skin is immediately closed off when you are treated and a scab forms, leaving no open or exposed areas which keeps the risk of infection minimal and speeds up healing time. After the scab initially falls off, there will be a red mark remaining that will gradually fade away anywhere from 2-8 weeks post-treatment as your skin regenerates, depending on your skin type. Typically, the more pigmented your skin is, the longer it will take for the red markings to fade out completely. Any questions or concerns you may have, can be addressed and assessed during your free consultation.
