About Us


Electrolysis has, for over 100 years, been the only 100% permanent method of hair removal. It has the longest track record and is recognised by the British Medical Association and the American Medical Association.

First used in 1875 by Dr. Charles Mitchel to remove ingrown eyelashes, he discovered that once treated with Electrolysis, a hair follicle was permanently destroyed and could no longer produce hairs.

Electrolysis is suitable for all hair and skin types, and is carried out at Clinique Matrice for ladies of all ages from adolescence onwards.

Our Technology

At Clinique Matrice, we use the very latest Aphilus Platinum Pure technology from USA for 100% Permanent hair removal treatment.

After 123 years, Electrolysis still remains the only effective method of permanent hair removal, for all hair and skin types. Other methods of hair removal such as laser are applied to the skin surface and detect the hair by its pigmentation (colour). For effective hair “reduction” these methods require a strong contrast between the skin’s colour (eg light) and the hair colour (eg dark). Electrolysis targets the base of the hair follicle directly, achieving complete destruction of the cells responsible for hair growth, while protecting the skin’s surface.

Comfort and Efficient Hair Removal at Clinique MatriceApilus offers advanced state of the art computerized technology and proven effectiveness. Already used in thousands of centres throughout the world, the system has demonstrated time and again that it delivers a more gentle, comfortable and much more rapid 100% permanent result.
