Education Details

Before you can work with clients and start removing their hair, you have to have a solid understanding of how hair grows and how it affects skin. In the theoretical part of your training, you may study hair growth cycles and find out how electrolysis interrupts that cycle. Practical experience is crucial, so get ready to spend plenty of time watching your instructor perform electrolysis and getting some practice yourself. As you progress through your education, you should learn how to use electrolysis effectively on different parts of the body. By the time you graduate, you should feel ready to independently perform electrolysis on patients.
