I would like to gather in this thread all known techniques (and not so well known) developed through history of Electrology.
Some were called by an acronym, others however have not even had this category (as far I know).
If you know of any new technique or have more information about which are mentioned or will be mentioned, please, feel free to share your knowledges.
- S.I.M.P.L.E technique (Sequential Inverted Micro-Pulsed Led Energy), developed by Suzanne Anderer, CPE and owner of Illinois School of Electrology.
This technique is used with a very fast timing setting, measured in thousands of a second combined with a very high intensity setting. The micro-pulse setting is initiated as the insertion is made so that the entire length of the follicle, from the bulge to the hair papilla, is treated sequentially.
- P.E.R.T technique (Post-Epilation Reentry Technique) or Double Dipping.
This technique gives the electrologist a big advantage when working in deep anagen hairs, because it gives the practitioner a chance to adjust any insertion error.
The steps are as follows:
a) Insert the probe into the follicle.
b) Current is applied.
c) Probe is removed.
d) Remove the hair.
e) Probe is re-inserted into the empty follicle.
f) A second dose of current is applied.
g) The probe is removed from the follicle.
P.E.R.T should be used if:
An easy release cannot be accomplished without over-treatment, or if the original insertion is slightly off target. In both cases the needle is re-inserted easily into the naked, vulnerable, follicle which now has no hair blocking the destructive current.
