Electrolysis Saved My Life

Electrolysis Saved My Life

Client was tweezing her chin every day. The “acne” on her chin had been treated with every known pharmaceutical and OTC available. Her dermatologist was at a loss. She “heard” about electroepilation (electrolysis, thermolysis, blend) and decided to give it a try. A zap here, a zap there, AND instructions to stop all tweezing. One year later the skin on her chin is smooth and “acne” free. She says I saved her life. ~ Barbara Greathouse, CPE, Licensed Electrologist
