1. What is Electrology? Electrology is the science of permanent hair removal. It is achieved by gently inserting a fine sterile probe into the hair follicle, an opening in the skin that is already there. At this time a small measured amount of electrical energy is discharged via the probe into the follicle to destroy the source of growth. When this is competently and skillfully accomplished, the regenerative ability of the hair follicle is permanently eliminated.
