Electrolysis is recognised as a safer and more effective way to remove hair

Electrolysis is the only method of permanent hair removal approved by both the BMA (British Medical Association) in the UK and the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) in the US.

Some laser treatments are permitted to advertise permanent hair reduction, but not permanent hair removal.

Electrolysis is safe for all skin types whether pale, dark or sensitive, and can be performed on any area of the body except the mucus membrane inside the nose.

It is effective on all types of hair – curly, straight, blonde through to black, grey or white and will permanently remove unwanted hair. Electrolysis can also be used to treat distorted hairs.

With up to 550 programs tailored to suit each skin type and body area, the machine can be adjusted between treating an eyebrow or underarm and a lip area or chin, and can be performed at any stage of the hair’s growth to achieve successful results.

For laser to achieve a successful result, the hair has to be in its anagene stage – but it is most unlikely all the hair will be in that stage at the same time.

Following laser treatments, clients have to avoid sunlight for long periods, particularly if they undergo repeated laser treatments on their face. After electrolysis, clients only have to avoid direct sunlight for a few hours.

Laser emits radiation which risks nerve damage, up to third degree burns or hypersensitivity, particularly if performed by an under-trained therapist. Electrolysis cannot damage skin to nerve level.

Laser treatments can be very painful – but with our Apilus® Platinum™ Pure”, electrolysis treatments can be so comfortable that some of our clients drift off to sleep.

At Somerset Electrolysis we believe there is no contest: electrolysis is unequivocally safer and more effective than laser

What They Say

Met Karyn and Rosie for the first time today. A great team, put me at ease immediately with a friendly, professional approach. The electrolysis went well with no adverse reaction and I will certainly be in contact with them again soon.


Such a lovely first appointment with Karyn and Rosie. They made me feel very welcome and comfortable. They are both very knowledgeable about electrolysis and skincare. I had a patch test done which was fine during treatment and afterwards. I look forward to my future treatments.


I have been having electrolysis for years and I couldn’t believe the difference when I went to Somerset Electrolysis, Karyn was really efficient and has virtually cleared my face, Rosie had a go at my thread veins that looked really awful and for the first time in years I go out in public without makeup. Thank you Karyn and Rosie for doing wonders for my self esteem, I can highly recommend you both.   Katie

Scared to deal with the problem?

What really genuine ladies.

I have been wanting to get my embarrassing facial hair dealt with for years but was too scared to go to a salon or anything.

Rosie and Karyn were so welcoming and understanding, I completely felt at ease and like i had finally found a solution to something that effects my life so much.

I know it will take some time to eradicate but it IS POSSIBLE!! I don’t know why I didn’t go earlier! If you are worried about embarrassing hair removal these are your girls to see!!

Very confidential and they have a treatment room in their home so no beauty salons to deal with!!!

Highly recommended 🙂
