Unwanted hair is a common problem affecting most women to varying degrees throughout their lives and prompting the use of various temporary methods of hair reduction or hair management systems. Popular methods include IPL, laser and electrolysis.

However electrolysis is still the only proven permanent method of hair removal and many women and indeed many men, have benefited from this tried and trusted treatment. It is also a very effective way to remove the last remaining hairs after laser treatment.

Electrolysis has become gentler and more comfortable, even more effective and is an affordable, modern treatment increasingly popular today.

At The Bosham Clinic our experienced therapists use waxing or threading to temporary remove unwanted hair and Sterex electrolysis blend to remove hair permanently.


Threading is an ancient method of hair removal which originated in Arabia and South Asia. It is mainly used to shape eyebrows and remove unwanted hair from the upper lip and face. It is a very delicate method of hair removal so is suitable for sensitive skin. The procedure uses a piece of 100% cotton thread which is twisted and pulled along the area of unwanted hair. With Threading side effects are minimal. There is much less chance of irritation or rashes that may be caused by waxing.


Electrolysis is a safe, effective, progressive and permanent method of removing unwanted hair. Indeed it is the only truly permanent method of hair removal and is therefore a treatment in great demand.


A tiny fine probe (about the size of an eyelash) is inserted into the hair follicle where a tiny burst of energy is targeted at the root of the hair. This burst of energy prevents nutrients feeding the hair and the hair becomes weaker and finer. After repeated treatments the hair is no longer able to grow and complete hair free results are obtained. Each hair requires repeated treatment because each individual hair has its own growing cycle and blood supply. Electrolysis works by weakening the hair and eventually destroying it. Results take a little time, but, just like dieting, it’s not the crash diet but the healthy eating plan that works in the long run.


Electrolysis was first invented in 1875 and is proven both effective and totally safe when performed correctly. Ask to see the therapists Certificates in Epilation and any updated training certificates they may have had recently if you feel unsure in any way. Modern technology has meant electrolysis has become gentler and more comfortable, even more effective and is an affordable, modern treatment increasingly popular today.
