Hair removal is an essential part of an effective beauty and skincare regimen, and there has always been a high demand for hair removal products and hair removal methods that really work. Whether for removal of hair from the legs, bikini area, underarms or facial hair, women have long needed hair removal products and methods. Now, with men’s growing interest in grooming, the market for genuinely effective hair removal is continually growing and the easy, permanent hair removal that electrolysis offers will always be in demand. Even in a recession, image is still important and many people would rather compromise on other expenses than personal grooming.
Electrolysis has been used for over a century, and electrology is the only method of permanent hair removal that is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA states that an electrology machine is "a device intended to remove the hair by destroying the dermal papilla of a hair". Since no other method of hair removal consistently destroys the papilla from which a hair grows, only electrologists can claim that their method of hair removal is permanent. Today, electrology has become a well-known and 'gold standard' form of permanent hair removal. Electrology is here to stay, and is not just the latest fad.
Electrology involves the application of low-level electrical current and/or radio frequency to a hair follicle through a sterile needle or probe. Although it sounds uncomfortable, with today’s Apilus microprocessor driven equipment, it is virtually painless. There are three main forms of electrology. The first, electrolysis, applies direct current to the hair follicle through the electrologists’ hand piece and probe creating sodium hydroxide as the direct current reacts with the H2O in the cells of the skin. Sodium hydroxide also known as caustic lye, chemically destroys a follicle. The second modality is called thermolysis and it utilizes radio frequency delivered along an alternating current through the hand piece and probe. When used together, you have the third modality called the Blend. All Apilus epilators are capable of delivering all modalities utilizing either 13.5 Mhz or the newest Apilus 27 Mhz frequency. Electrologists may use any one technique or a combination of techniques in their work with their clients, depending upon what is required in any given area of the body.
Today, most US states regulate the practice of electrology through an examination and licensing system. This is welcome news to graduates of the best electrology programs, such as the ones at AIE, as it protects the reputation of electrologists. Not just anyone can set up as an electrologist, so numbers will always be controlled and clients know that as a licensed electrologist, you know what you are doing.
As a state-licensed electrologist, you can look forward to a long and rewarding career. Permanent hair removal is often a dream come true for most electrolysis clients, massively increasing their self-confidence and self-esteem. By performing this effective, permanent method of hair removal, you'll change your clients lives for the better. As well as bringing genuine happiness to your clients, you'll also be rewarded with flexible and well-compensated work. Electrology has a good reputation as a safe, effective way of permanently removing unwanted hair, so it is not difficult to market your electrology skills and quickly get clients.
Permanent hair removal through electrology is not only sought after for personal grooming, electrology can also make a dramatic difference in the treatment of hirsutism, or excessive hairiness, caused by hormonal disorders such as Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Permanent hair removal by electrology can make a huge difference in the lives of women affected by this condition.
