Hair removal has become very popular with many men: smooth, hairless bodies can be seen as clean, more youthful and sexier!

Whether to alleviate skin problems, for health reasons, or to end the drudgery of shaving, clipping, tweezing, waxing or laser, the prospect of permanently removing unwanted hair from whichever part of the body it is desired to clear can be very attractive.

While shaving or clipping are the usual methods of hair control, they can be tiresome to carry out over large areas on a daily basis. There is also a risk of nicks or infections, particularly if the skin is rather rough. And then there is the stubble…

Waxing can prove painful, and ripping the hairs out can cause the hair follicle to distort, leading to infections of the follicle which result in spots and boils. Plus, the trauma of waxing causes a rush of blood flow to the affected area, which means the hair could come back stronger and thicker than before.

Laser is a quick option to reduce a large area of dark hair, but needs to be carried out by a highly-trained laser technician. As they will be unable to remove all the hair at the same time owing to differing hair growth cycles, repeat visits will be necessary over many years which can prove very expensive. In addition, any light, red or white hairs will require the services of an electrologist to remove as laser only operates on darker hairs.

Somerset Electrolysis is happy to work alongside laser clinics for those clients who wish to take the combined laser/electrolysis route but we do recommend clients research carefully which laser treatment will be best suited to their hair/skin type to avoid disappointment and unnecessary costs.

Regardless of skin tone, hair colour or body part, electrolysis is the only permanent hair removal method approved by both the British Medical Association (BMA) in the UK and the FDA (Food & Drugs Administration) in the US.

Electrolysis can be used on large areas such as backs, chest and abdomen. Depending on the hair density and thickness, it may take several months for the first clearing to be completed, and will then require a few more clearings before the hair is permanently removed, but with each clearing the hair will become finer and take longer to reappear. Therefore treatments usually start on a weekly or fortnightly basis then drop to monthly and longer until the hair has been eradicated, which can take up to a couple of years.

Electrolysis is very helpful where ingrowing hairs are a recurring problem, such as around the beard area, which other hair removal methods can make worse.

No type or volume of body hair is too stubborn for treatment, and no body part is too embarrassing. At Somerset Electrolysis it is our mission to help you feel confident and happy with how you are. Please see our Areas for Treatment page for more information.

Modern electrolysis is comfortable, very safe, and does not scar. Any effects from the treatment usually settles down within an hour.

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 🙂
