Electrolysis is the only medically recognized method of permanent hair removal for all types of hair. Please read our brochure to learn more about how electrolysis works.
Information about my prices can be found on the pricing page. In addition to my fair pricing, I also offer 5-hour packages to further increase affordability.
Absolutely! I have worked with many transgender patients over the years to help them successfully complete their transition. Hair removal is one of the most important parts of a successful transition and should be begun as soon as possible to allow time to complete treatments.
During electrolysis, you may notice a slight metallic taste in your mouth, during facial electrolysis. This is no cause for alarm; depending on your body chemistry, this may result as an interaction between your taste buds and the galvanic current. If you find it unpleasant, sucking on a lemon drop or mint should mask the taste.
After electrolysis, it is common to experience some redness and tenderness in the treated areas. This is normal and will fade away in a short time.
I have been performing electrolysis in the Twin Cities area for over 20 years. Between my years of experience and my continuing education, you can be assured of top-quality, successful electrolysis. I am a Certified Professional Electrologist (CPE), Licensed Cosmetologist (LC), Licensed Esthetician (LE), Board Certified, and a current member of the American Electrology Association.
I do not offer laser hair removal. I believe that focusing exclusively on electrolysis has allowed me to become an expert in the field.
Laser hair removal has not been proven to be a permanent method of hair removal — only "hair reduction" — and can furthermore only reduce hair that has a large amount of melanin.
I do have knowledge of laser hair removal, so if you have any questions on laser hair removal versus electrolysis, please feel free to call.
I use thermolysis, galvanic, and the blend method. An assessment is done during the consultation with the client as to the method that will be used to remove the hairs.
I use state-of-the-art FDA-approved Elegance epilators, designed and manufactured in the USA by Clareblend. Their digital technology provides precision and increased client comfort.
I adhere to strict sterilization standards. Every piece of equipment that the client comes in contact with has been sterilized. Sterilization will be addressed at the time of each client's consultation.
In addition, customers will be treated with all-natural aloe vera gel after each session.
Unfortunately, sessions are limited to one hour to insure the physical well-being of your skin and to protect my health.
