Information on some of our treatments at Patricia Harrington Beauty Salon Boyle
Electrolysis is used to permanently remove unwanted hair. A fine needle is used to deliver an electrical current into the hair follicle to destroy the hair root. The electric current eventually destroys the hair follicle tissue, preventing the hair re-growing. The time that it takes to complete this hair removal process may vary greatly:
- depending on how strong the hair is
- how long the problem has persisted
- what area of the body is being treated
- what the cause of the hair growth is
You will feel a certain amount of discomfort during the treatment, but this varies greatly on your tolerance and pain threshold.
Eye lash tinting and brow tinting can give colour to fair hairs and more definition to the eye area.
This treatment is especially beneficial for people who are going on holiday or who swim a lot
and do not want to use waterproof mascara.
Lash tinting can last for 3 to 6 weeks, brow tinting a little less.

Waxing is a method of temporary hair removal, which removes the hairs from the root. This can last for a period of 2 to 6 weeks,
depending how often the treatment is done, the rate of hair growth and how strong the hairs are. The hairs need to be approximately a quarter
inch or half cm long for the wax to stick to the hairs for a successful treatment.
This is a physical process of hair removal and you may experience mild discomfort when the wax is removed.
This is a normal sensation in this treatment.
