Electrolysis permanently destroys germ cells responsible for hair growth by way of insertion of a fine probe in the hair follicle and the application of a current adjusted to each hair type and treatment area.  

Thanks to modern technology, Apilus electrolysis devices have revolutionized permanent hair removal treatments. The creators of Apilus have designed a state-of-the-art computerized electrolysis machine that limits the level of destruction within the hair follicle, targeting only germ cells. This consequently protects the skin and prevents new hair growth.

Apilus offers advanced technology with proven effectiveness in the field of permanent hair removal. Apilus electrolysis systems have demonstrated time and time again that they deliver more effective and more comfortable treatments with rapid permanent results.

Owing to its powerful circuits and stable currents, Apilus offers pinpoint precision capabilities and optimal settings that deliver the results you seek. You can finally say goodbye to unwanted hair, whether it be facial hair or body hair.

Apilus is the gentle way to 100% permanent hair removal!
