Electrolysis and pregnancy

2013-06-18

A pregnant woman should generally not undergo electrolysis treatments during the first three months of pregnancy. Why? In order to keep sources of stress to a minimum during this higher-risk period.

After the first trimester, she can undergo hair removal treatments using high-frequency current only. No treatments using galvanic current or Blend currents are allowed, so you can also forget cataphoresis. Galvanic current is not recommended as it has the ability to travel through the human body and could therefore affect the foetus. In order to make sure that the pregnancy is going well and that no complications are expected, an electrologist may ask for medical clearance before proceeding with electrolysis hair removal of a pregnant patient with high-frequency current.
