So you have recently begun a permanent hair removal treatment and you wonder whether it is wise to carry on through the summer months? Never fear! Out of all the long-term hair removal solutions, electrolysis is far and away the one best suited for long sunny days. Indeed, summer and electrolysis get on very well… as long as certain basic rules are kept in mind.
Aloe vera is renowned for its many virtues – hydrating, anti-inflammatory, healing, and many more besides. Applied directly on burns, sunburns or scratches, the gel that we extract from its leaves provides a feeling of instant freshness. No wonder it has remained so popular up and down the centuries! Given that its general usefulness is beyond doubt, we would like to explore how this marvelous plant can help in specific beauty scenarios, such as in post-aesthetic or hair removal treatment as well as in anti-aging protocols.
Manufacturers have developed over the years electrolysis devices that use various radiofrequencies to generate the heat necessary for permanent hair removal. Over the last 10 years or so, the 27.12 MHz radiofrequency has established itself as the gold standard. But why exactly?

It’s a fact, we don’t know very much about our body hair. Probably in part because its growth occurs slowly, and that it falls without us noticing, except, that is, when we take a peek at our shower drain! Such ignorance makes for a certain amount of misconceptions about hair that we should dispel, if only to help us choose what type of epilation procedure is right for us. Let us first get rid of the notion that hair grows… and “re-grows”, once cut or shaven. Hair will only resume its natural growth, and will fall eventually, before being replaced by a brand new hair.

In our last blog post we went through a brief overview of the 30-year history of APILUS, Dectro’s flagship brand. Yet there is another interesting story to tell, of what went before APILUS. So how and why did this spirit of innovation arise in the first place?
In September 1989, Dectro launched its first Apilus-branded product on the market, the Electropil. Since then, the name Apilus has become synonymous with innovation in the field of permanent hair removal. As we reach this 30-year milestone, we would like to invite you to accompany us, as we go through the highlights in the history of Apilus, the global reference in electroepilation.
