Does electrolysis work well? Do you get a cyst at the zapped follicle?

In brief: Electrolysis

Electrolysis is painful, costly and slow to work, but is an effective means of hair removal.
You should not get cysts at the site of the hair removal. A more modern approach is laser hair removal which hurts less but is still quite expensive.
