We achieve permanent hair removal expertly and affordably through electrolysis, a safe method of hair removal that leaves your skin smooth and intact. Electrolysis has been a proven method of hair removal since the late 1800’s. It is the only method that the FDA has approved for PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL when done by a technically skilled electrologist. Electrolysis is the process of removing hair permanently by destroying the hair growing cells at the papilla with an electric current from a highly sophisticated machine known as an epilator. Access to the papilla is made by inserting a very fine filament into the hair follicle. Applying the electric current cauterizes the papilla, thus rendering it impossible to grow more hair. Our technicians are CPE’s belong to both the AEA and the NYEA.

The NYEA, New York State Electrology Association, is New York State’s most powerful permanent hair removal resource for both consumers and electrolgists.
Laser is a quick and efficient method of PERMANENT HAIR REDUCTION.
The process treats hair follicles simultaneously and is ideal for large areas such as legs, backs, and bikini lines.
The laser produces a beam of light that seeks out the pigment in the hair follicle, creating enough heat to significantly impede the follicles ability to grow. Working best on the dark haired, light skinned candidate, laser is not effective on blonde, gray, or white hair. The cost for laser treatment is from $75.00 - $500.00 per body area. On average it will take 6 – 8 visits to achieve desired results.
Clients may choose to purchase a topical anesthetic cream. Ice is provided for cooling. (Dr. Numb Topical Cream $35.00)
Unlike wax, sugar is made from natural ingredients with no animal testing. It is a paste that is warmed when used. Sugar is applied with the fingertips in the opposite direction the hair grows then it is “flicked” off in the same direction the hair grows. When the hair is pulled out in the same direction it grows there is less chance of breakage and therefore less chance of ingrown hairs.
Sugaring is an acquired skill that is not easily mastered. It is the method of choice at Hair Goes Inc. for most of our clients who come to have a Brazilian wax. It is a fast and easy way to temporarily remove unwanted hair, a soothing cream is applied afterwards and like wax, the sugaring will give you smooth silky skin for approximately 4 weeks.
