Bluegrass Electrolysis and Laser Clinic, located at 141 Prosperous Place, FL 23 B, Lexington, KY, is owned and operated by Louise Chaffins. Before opening our clinic in 2005 at the past location we were in business for over 20 years practicing in Hazard and Jenkins, KY. Mrs. Chaffins started the clinic in the back of her trailer with one electrolysis machine in 1975, in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains (Kentucky/Virginia Border). We most recently moved into this location on Dec 1st, 2019. Thank you all for supporting us throughout the years.
We are members of the American Electrology Association, Allied Health Association and The American Society For Medical Laser & Surgery. We have attended seminars in San Francisco, New York, Las Vegas, New Jersey and North Carolina and have completed advanced training from the Monterey Bay institute of Electrology in Monterey California.
We offer our clients the choice between Electrolysis or Laser. We offer a free consultation and treatment plan to eliminate your unwanted hair.
Electrolysis is approved by the FDA as being permanent and safe, however Laser is considered a reduction because we cannot guarantee to destroy all the hairs. We destroy hairs with every treatment, but how many depends on the clients texture of hair and skin color. While performing treatments with the laser we have seen some clients get up to 90% of their hairs destroyed, while other clients may see only 50% destroyed. For those that get only 50% destroyed we can follow up with Electrolysis. After a laser treatment the hairs will begin to fall out in seven to fourteen days. The amount of hairs that fall out will depend on the texture, cycle, and melanin contained in the hair.
Laser can target up to 100 follicles per pulse, where as with Electrolysis every hair is treated with a fine metal probe that is inserted into each follicle. As you can see Laser can treat more hairs per treatment at a faster rate.
It is important during the consultation to determine which treatment plan is best for the client.
