Electrolysis is a tried and tested method of hair removal and hair reduction that has been giving clients results for years. At Tessa Stevens we use the Rita Roberts methods of Electrolyisis. Hair in unwanted areas of the face or body can be upsetting causing low self-esteem, and continual unsuccessful attempts at hair removal can even cause damage to the surrounding skin and in some cases stimulate more hair growth. Electrolysis uses a diathermy (heat) current to create destruction in the hair follicle to treat the hairs. Hygiene and your safety is of the up-most importance to us – so you can be assured our team are all registered with a certified insurer and we use new Ballet brand needles for all treatments. We dispose of our needles safely complying with all local council requirements. Please contact us with any questions you may have or view our consultation & treatment prices below
We use the Rita Roberts method for our electrolysis treatments. You must have a private consultation and patch test on your first visit, so we can decide on the best course of treatment for you

Electrolysis hair removal is a treatment which permanently removes hair. It uses short wave diathermy to destroy the root and the hair in the hair follicle over a period of time.
Once you have had a consultation and your therapist has said you are suitable for treatment then you can start. Some medications, health problems and pregnancy may need your docters approval before starting.
Electrolysis is a permanent method of hair removal, but the programme must be followed as advised as per the unique hair growth cycle.
Laser hair removal is not suitable for grey or white hair or for some people that have an all year round tan, therefore electrolysis is a better option.
Any area of the face and body.
It feels like a short burst of heat, some areas are very comfortable and other areas may feel more sensitive.
We can assure you that you will have a private consultation with an experienced therapist who will be able to look after you and answer all your questions and give you the reassurance and confidence you need to make the right choices.
