Electrolysis Course Overview

(Permanent Hair Removal also known as Epilation)

Epilation is the permanent reduction of superfluous (unwanted) hair; it is a highly profitable and popular treatment. You will receive training with the use of Diathermy, Galvanic and Blend techniques; therefore you will be able to adapt your working techniques to suit the client’s needs.

The epilation client is one of the most regular attendants in the salon, therefore providing the electrologist with a steady remuneration throughout the year.

Although laser hair removal has become increasing popular over the last ten years, there is still a high demand for electrolysis, as clients with lighter hairs or reactive skins cannot be successfully treated with laser.

We offer a comprehensive training course over three days in which you will learn how to successfully epilate hair from the following areas:  upper lip, chin, eyebrows, underarm, bikini, neck, chest/breast.

Earning Potential

Most advanced Epilation systems use a combination of frequencies to produce maximum destruction, with minimum skin reaction.

Pricing usually starts at £20 for 15 minutes treatment time.
