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.

What we use on the day
On the day of the course we will use a Sterex Blend machine.
A Sterex Blend Epilation machine is a type of device used for electrolysis, a method of hair removal that involves the use of a small electrical current to destroy the hair follicle. The Sterex Blend machine is a specific type of electrolysis device that uses a blend of direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) to remove hair.
The direct current is used to create a chemical reaction that destroys the hair follicle, while the alternating current is used to create heat and coagulate the tissue. This dual action makes the Sterex Blend machine more efficient at removing hair than other types of electrolysis machines.
The Sterex Blend Epilation machine typically uses a small needle that is inserted into the hair follicle. A small electrical current is then passed through the needle to destroy the follicle. The process can be uncomfortable, and some people may experience mild pain or discomfort during the procedure.
The Sterex Blend Epilation machine is commonly used to remove hair from small areas, such as the face or underarms, as well as for shaping eyebrows. It is considered a safe and effective method of hair removal, and results in permanent hair removal over time. However, it is important to seek treatment from a qualified practitioner who has been trained in the use of the Sterex Blend machine, in order to ensure that the procedure is performed safely and effectively.
