Clean skin releases unwanted hair more easily. Remove your makeup before your appointment, so the hair follicles are clean and accessible.
Did you know?
Gently exfoliating your skin before your treatment opens up the follicles and lets the unwanted hair slide out more easily.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
Drinking plenty of water helps unwanted hair slide right out.
Ask your electrologist for aftercare advice. We can recommend the product that is right for your skin and treatment program.
It's okay to shave between treatments, but never, ever tweeze!
Did you Know?
Electrology is the only hair removal method recognized as permanent by the FDA.
For a more comfortable treatment, avoid caffeine for a few hours before your appointment.
Did you know?
If your electrologist can't see the hairs, they can't zap the hairs. Plucking, waxing, threading, or tweezing before your hair removal appointment reduces the number of hairs your electrologist can remove.
Did you know?
The hair you see is not all the hair you have. Hair grows in cycles. That's why it takes more than one appointment to permanently clear an area.
Talk to your electrologist about any questions or concerns. We want your experience to be as comfortable and effective as possible.

I think one of the nicest things I ever did for my mom was bringing her to Sheila for a de-fuzzing. I didn't bother explaining where we were going as she might not have understood and her first response would have been "No." She was just a bit too old to try something other than tweezing, after doing it for so many years. But she loved it and wanted to return every time she came for a visit in the big city. -- M. G.
I was tired of being a slave to my tweezers. Never leaving home without them. The hardest part about Electrolysis was making the first appointment, but after my first session I considered myself lucky to find a much better alternative to tweezing. Now I wear V neck sweaters without worrying about chest hairs and 2 piece bathing suits without worry about tummy hair. It will change your life.
When I see women touching their chins in search of chin whiskers, I want to tell them "Try electrolysis. It will change your life." A session with Sheila makes me feel more attractive than a facial or buying make-up. I wish everyone who needs it knew about it. -- L.R.
