Diathermy epilation is the permanent removal of unwanted hair using a short-wave diathermy current. This current creates heat, which is delivered to the hair at the root. The heat dries up all the moisture, living cells and blood supply at the root of the hair, thus destroying it.

Each hair grows in a structure known as a hair follicle. The root of the hair sits at the base of this follicle. To target the heat created by the treatment at the root of the hair, a minute probe or needle is inserted into the follicle. Once it is in place, the current is activated for 1 or 2 seconds.
