Electrolysis at True Medispa in Twickenham

Electrolysis Hair Removal

Experience the revolutionary electrolysis treatment at True Medispa, your gateway to permanent hair removal.

Our meticulous approach targets each hair follicle individually, using a fine, disposable, and sterile probe.

This method permanently disrupts the follicle's ability to reproduce, ensuring the complete eradication of hair growth upon the conclusion of the treatment course.  Ideal for facial hair.

Please note:  A consultation is required for all new clients to assess unique needs and customise the treatment plan accordingly.

What To Expect From The Treatment

  • Electrolysis treats each hair follicle individually
  • A new, sterile needle is used each time, ensuring a hygienic and effective procedure
  • It destroys the hair follicle’s ability to reproduce, thereby eradicating hair growth on completion of the course of treatments
  • The number of sessions required varies based on individual hair density & growth patterns (between 50 and 500 hairs can be packed into a small area.)

Treatment - At A Glance

Treatment Time

An electrolysis treatment typically lasts between 15-60 minutes depending on which area you are getting treated. During a consultation, we will let you know how long your treatment will likely be.


5 minutes - £22

10 minutes - £32

15 minutes - £38

20 minutes - £45

30 minutes -  £54



Recovery Time

Generally there is some redness and a little localised swelling after. This will disappear in time depending on skin sensitivity and type. The next day your skin will show very little sign of treatment.


You may see some tiny reddish brown pinprick scabs the day after your electrolysis treatment. This is where the treated hairs are distorted or ingrown and it is nothing to worry about. These scabs will drop off naturally within a few days to a week depending on the individual’s healing ability.


If your hair is hard to see, it will be harder to remove so please don't bleach the hair you want removed before your appointment. Avoid applying makeup or deodorants to the areas being treated as they may block the pores. You should stop using retinoids at least 1 week before your appointment.

Duration of Results

Electrolysis is considered a permanent hair removal process. This means that the results will last ongoing after the full course of electrolysis treatments have been completed. Please be sure that you are happy for permanent hair removal before booking your electrolysis appointments.
