electrolysis

/elec·trol·y·sis/ (e″lek-trol´ĭ-sis) destruction by passage of a galvanic current, as in disintegration of a chemical compound in solution or removal of excessive hair from the body.

electrolysis

[il′ektrol′isis]
Etymology: Gk, elektron + lysis, loosening
a process in which electric energy causes a chemical change in a conducting medium, usually a solution or a molten substance, or the decomposition of a substance such as hair follicles. electrolytic, adj.

e·lec·trol·y·sis

(ĕ-lek-trol'i-sis)
1. Decomposition of a salt or other chemical compound by means of an electric current.
2. Destruction of certain hair follicles by means of galvanic electricity.
[electro- + G. lysis, dissolution]

electrolysis

The decomposition of a solution by the passage of an electric current to separate charged particles (ions). Water can be separated into the gases hydrogen and oxygen by this means. The term is used for electrical destruction of unwanted hair follicles, but the main destructive effect is one of heating.

electrolysis

local destruction of body tissues by topical galvanic electricity

electrolysis (i·lek·trˑ·l·sis),

n means by which electrical energy is conducted through electrodes into a substance (molten or in solution), thus causing a chemical change in the substance.

electrolysis

destruction by passage of a galvanic current, as in disintegration of a chemical compound in solution or destruction of hairs such as cilia from eyelids in distichiasis or trichiasis.
