Chantilly Electrolysis Permanent Hair Removal for Teens

As teens are coming into their own, physical changes such as unsightly hair can negatively impact body image and self-esteem. For teenage girls, it could be the growth of superfluous hair on the side of the face or upper lip. For teenage boys, it may be the emergence of thick, bulky eyebrows. Some teenagers feel too embarrassed to speak about their hair concerns, while others go to a parent for advice.

If you're a teen or the parent of a teen, rest assured that there is a permanent solution for removing excess hair safely, comfortably and conveniently: electrolysis.

What is the youngest age for hair removal treatments?

The earliest age for treatment depends upon the motivation of the young person. We want to make sure that it is the young person, and not a parent, who is deciding that it is time for electrolysis treatments. Girls as young as 12 seek treatments to remove hair on their upper lip. Teens and even pre-teens of all genders receive treatments to define or separate eyebrows.

Can young people tolerate the treatments?

Yes, new techniques, equipment and topical anesthetics help reduce the sensation of electrology treatments. A tolerance for the treatments will also come with maturity. If the young person decides not to have treatments, the electrologist will discuss options to hide the hair until he or she is less sensitive.

If the young person is too sensitive, what other options are there?

Cutting, clipping, or shaving are the best ways to hide the hair (it will not result in coarsening or increased density). Bleach will hide scattered hairs, to a degree. Depilatories remove the hair with chemicals, although they can cause irritation, possibly resulting in skin pigmentation problems.

What areas do teens have treated?

Teen and pre-teen girls often get treatments on their upper lip, chin and sides of face. Young people will also have their eyebrows defined or separated, as well as having hairline, neckline and body areas treated.

Why do young girls grow hair on their upper lip?

Genetics, hormones, and medications can cause hair growth at any age.
