Yes, one of the common misconceptions about electrolysis is that you have to let the hair grow in-between sessions. In actual fact, you can treat the hair as you would do usually, even shaving if on the legs or face. The hair doesn’t have to be any longer than 1-2 mm for electrolysis to be effective. It is even contra-productive because it makes insertions more difficult. It is important you stop shaving 3 days prior to your electrolysis session.
We should emphasize that in contrast to popular believe shaving of the hair will not thicken it, coarsen it or make it grow more rapidly.
