As of 2015, the average cost of electrolysis is $35 to $52 for half an hour. The cost depends on the size of the area being treated, how much hair is removed and the city where the treatment is performed. Electrolysis is less expensive than other hair removal treatments.
Electrolysis is a way of removing individual hairs from the face or body permanently. The device used for electrolysis is called an epilator, which uses a short-wave radio frequency to destroy the growth center of the hair. Electrolysis is effective for all skin types, hair types, hair colors, skin colors and body areas. It is the only Food and Drug Administration-approved method for permanent hair removal.
