This Electrolysis program will prepare students to be able to work alongside doctors in the growing industry of permanent hair removal. The demand in this field has been steadily increasing since it was developed in 1875. While there are more advanced forms of hair removal, Electrolysis is still a very important method because it does not only treat all hair types with permanent results, but it is also the prerequisite to obtaining a Laser Hair Removal license. Students receive the necessary training to remove hair from the face and body using specialized equipment and techniques.
