Is Electrolysis safe during the Summer?


Yes! Electrolysis is perfectly safe during the Summertime. However, you should take extra care to protect your skin. After electrolysis, the treated area is more open & slightly irritated. You should avoid the sun for at least 24 hours after treatment. It is also important to apply a good quality sunscreen immediately after the treatment session and until the complete healing of the skin. Your best bet is a broad-spectrum sunscreen that will protect you from UVA and UVB rays. Also, it is wise to choose a sunscreen that contains vitamins such as vitamin E and C. Vitamin C helps protect the skin from sunburn & Vitamin E can protect against UV-induced DNA damage. At The Sardis Electrolysis Lounge, we offer OmbraCrème by Action De Gala (http://www.dectro.com/en/ombracreme-34-2215). It is specifically formulated as a post epilation sunscreen. OmbraCrème is a high protection cream that not only relieves discomfort caused by inflammation, but it also promotes healing and hides redness as it is tinted. Also, OmbraCrème protects effectively against UVA and UVB rays as it is zinc based which prevents the appearance of age spots. Like any sunscreen of this quality, you should reapply a new coat at least every two hours. As an added benefit, OmbraCrème contains a minimum amount of chemical filters, giving the skin a very natural protection. OmbraCrème also includes emu oil, vitamin E and allantoin, which promotes the skin’s hydration and regeneration. If the area that was treated with electrolysis is exposed to the sun, brown pigment spots can form. Our skin defends against UV rays by producing pigment, which naturally deflects some of the harmful rays. After electrolysis, the skin is slightly irritated and it can over-produce pigment in those areas which can result in hyper-pigmentation. Pick up some OmbraCrème during your next appointment at The Sardis Electrolysis Lounge & protect yourself from sun spots while you continue to say goodbye to your unwanted hair, FOREVER!
