STEREX quality and training continues to make it the world leader in electrolysis.

What are common side effects?
Most patients experience redness on the treated area for up to 48 hours. Skin crusting maybe be visible for up to 14 days. It is important that you do not pick any crusting that forms as do so can lead to pigment changes or scarring. Leave the crusting to fall away naturally.
