At 25, I decided to become an electrologist and have been practicing permanent hair removal now for over 3 decades in the Nepean and Blue Mountains areas and a lot has changed. In 1993 when laser started kicking in people were so enthusiastic at trying this revolutionary new treatment. Roll on 10 years and they soon started to realise that it works fine for the dark body but for people who have hormonal problems on the face and for women who have blonde and vellus hairs bought them back to electrolysis and in some cases laser made these hair worse.
Electrolysis schools mostly closed because there was not a lot of demand. For those electrologists like me who decided to stay in the business of electrolysis and educate our clients about the benefits are being rewarded now. Of course the new trainees coming through have not been trained like we did.
Becoming an expert in this field has taken a lot of time and commitment in not only understanding its application but also learning areas such anatomy and physiology of the skin, principles of electricity and treatment contra-indications.
My electrolysis work at Skin Envy and previously at Beauty Comes Naturally has helped hundreds of women, men, teens and transgendered clients overcome excessive hair and other beauty obstacles.
I also treat skin conditions, not skin types. By treating the condition you will get consistent change. If your current therapist is telling you your skin is ‘dry’, ‘oily’ or even worse still using the terminology ‘sensitive’ then it’s time to come see me. I have been a Beauty therapist for 25 years and what an amazing 25 years they have been. Sometimes I feel like the oldest skin therapist in the Blue Mountains. Not oldest as in age oldest, but oldest in experience. Being the oldest means I have had time to trial all the weird and wonderful treatments, products and machines out there on the market.]I look at the ‘whys’ so that we can get to the bottom of why your skin is behaving like it is. I like to look at the connection between your gut, your environment and your hormones with your skin function.
Lastly but most importantly I like to introduce you to ingredients that your skin recognises. If your skin recognises it, it knows what to do with it. As simple as that. No rocket science required.
By regularly checking in with industry gurus outside of Australia and up-skilling myself I am equipped with up to the minute education. I focus on the topics that give you the outcomes so you don’t have to. The best place to start in achieving your best skin is with a consultation. Put yourself first. Today.
