If you are considering a career in electrology in Arizona, you likely have some unanswered questions. Perfect. That’s exactly what we’re here for.

Although Arizona doesn’t have a state electrolysis agency, you can find more information about this field from the website for the American Electrolysis Association.

State License Requirements

Arizona follows the trend set by many other states by not licensing electrologists. While you do not legally need a license to offer electrolysis for permanent hair removal, you do need the practice and theoretical understanding that comes from hands-on training. You may select a school that teaches the theory of electrolysis and permanent hair removal before moving on to practical experience.

Education Details

Arizona students who want to practice electrology should pay close attention to the skills and learning goals of each program they consider. Permanent hair removal, using the galvanic, thermolysis, or blended treatments takes high quality training from licensed practitioners. Courses should help you understand the science behind the techniques, as well as give you the practical experience to transition into internships or entry-level careers as quickly as possible.

Arizona electrology courses may include: •

  • Modalities of electrology •
  • Sanitation, disinfection and sterilization •
  • Interpersonal skills •
  • Ethical issues
