Electrolysis Contraindications

When you decide to receive a treatment such as Electrolysis, you must consider the consequences and contraindications that it may have. Like many treatments, the way the body assimilates depends on several factors such as genetic conditions, physical predisposition, and the person's habits, among others. However, there are general recommendations that must be considered to get a successful result.


It is important that you do not underestimate the recommendations that treatment experts can make to you because they know the implications that can be had before, during, and after the procedure. However, the sense of self-care is never too much.
