What is Electrolysis?
Electrology is the practice of permanent hair removal. It uses electrolysis, which is a scientific process employed to destroy hair roots. The electrolysis hair removal process goes as follows. First, a thin probe is inserted into a hair follicle all the way down to the root. Second, a minute amount of electricity is applied to the root through the probe destroying the hair growth tissue. Third, the dead hair is pulled out from the hair follicle using a tweezer. And finally... drumroll... voila! You are left with a hair follicle that is forever incapable of regrowing hair! If you would like to learn more, please visit the resourceful AEA site here.
Why go through all the pain of everyday hair removal treatments, when you can have permanent hair removal with electrolysis? Electrolysis is the only scientifically proven method of permanent hair removal. Electrolysis can be performed on almost any part of the body for any skin or hair type. Electrolysis gives you a little sensation but most people don't find it painful; most of Yuki's clients are relaxed throughout the procedure. Some of her clients even fall asleep during the procedure. So if you're tired of everyday hair removal treatments such as shaving, cutting, waxing, or tweezing, it is time for us to do something once and for all! Come see Yuki and she will work out a plan that works for you.
“Now I'm totally blissfully bump free and looking great. The results have been amazing.”

Why is Yuki so Special?
The modalities Yuki uses are Thermolysis and Blend. Yuki selects the modality best suited for your hair and skin type, and her machines' settings are highly adjustable so she can optimize the setting to meet your individual needs. Needless to say, she only uses high quality, disposable, sterilized probes freshly opened for you every time.
Yuki takes pride in her two-handed technique which enables her to take out hairs at a more rapid pace than could be done with a one-handed technique. The two-handed technique utilizes both hands; probe holder in one hand and tweezer in the other; where one-handed technique alternates holding the probe and tweezer in the same hand. It shouldn't be hard to imagine the efficiency difference between the two methods. Furthermore, Yuki varies her hands depending on the treatment area; probe in her right hand and tweezer in her left, or probe in her left and tweezer in her right. This helps to reduce stress on you because this allows her to place her hands at more comfortable places on your body no matter which direction your hair follicles are facing, especially while working on hard to reach places.
The benefit of this technique is sort of like that of switch hitters in baseball, who can hit either righty or lefty depending on the throwing arm of a pitcher. This speedy two-handed technique makes financial sense for you as well. Because electrolysis services typically have set price by session lengths, this fast, more efficient two-handed technique means you get more hairs removed for your money.

I absolutely love Yuki. She is so sweet, professional, caring, easy to talk to and does a great job. Most electrologists' are slow, using only one hand to remove the hair but Yuki uses a two hand technique so the results are amazing! I've gone to different electrologists before and in the same amount of time, Yuki probably removes more than double the amount of hair. She is so effective in what she does and I will always go to Yuki for my electrolysis needs. She makes you feel comfortable and is so sincere that she eases any nervousness you may have. I highly recommend Yuki to everyone - you definitely won't regret it!

I worked with Yuki on removing my facial hair for 5 years once a week and there is not a better electrolysis place you will find in New York. Yuki's expertise and professionalism make me feel safe and secure, an important thing when needles are going into your face. If you're looking for quality, this is it. Not only is she the top expert at hair removal, she is sweet, sincere and fun to talk to during the session. Her office staff is just amazing and very nice and accomodating. If you've been burned by bad electrolysis experiences in the past, as I have, please consider Yuki and her team, and let them make your hair-free fantasy a reality.

I feel when I am in Yuki's hands, that she is curing me of unwanted facial hair. I can feel that she is accurate in the placement of the needle and uses just the right amount of current to kill the follicle. She is young and has excellent vision. Yuki also has a gentle touch and a very pleasant manner. I recommend her highly."

From my very first appointment with Yuki Arai, I knew I had found the right person to rid me of my unwanted facial hairs. She is a true professional, personable, and customer focused. She understand women's needs for hair removal and how to correct the problem areas. I started with the upper lip, chin and side burns and the results are phenomenal. I am very pleased and now my appointments are not as frequent as it was in the beginning because Electroloysis performed by Yuki has given me the results I have been seeking for some time now. You will be absolutely be happy if you try it. I promise you.
