Are there any side effects to electrolysis?

There are no long term side effects of electrolysis. Immediately after an electrolysis treatment the skin may be slightly tender, but this will normally subside within a few hours. Use of aloe and witch hazel often help to cool and comfort the skin after treatment.

It is important after an electrolysis session to avoid direct sunlight and to clean the treatment area well to avoid infection. As long as proper consideration is taken after undergoing electrolysis, no long term or serious side effects should occur.
