Electrolysis is the only method of hair removal which is allowed, by law, to be described as permanent.
(UK – Advertising Standards Authority and US – FDA)
Resuming ‘normal’ service.
Barring any last minute changes to freedoms in Scotland or locally, all electrolysis work will be recommencing on Tuesday the 8th September. That will include the HRZ (high risk zone or breathing zone).
The breathing zone however, must be accessed from the side i.e. not directly facing each other HRZ to HRZ.
Some experimentation will need to be carried out I think, to better understand which areas are accessible under this rule and which are not. Bear with me whilst I see clients with various needs and try to decide which are possible by moving around the table to approach from different angles, and which are not.
I know already that eyebrows are ok and body areas are too. The right side of faces and necks will be ok but not sure about the left. It will be awkward and different and clients may have to keep a face mask on themselves, and let me move it as required.
September is already full but with some flexibility and I am now able to take bookings for October.
Fewer clients will be booked in per day as I get used to new PPE and carry out the cleaning required between sessions. From October I will be closed on Tuesdays as well as Sunday/Monday to allow 72 hours ‘lie’ time for any virus missed in cleaning to die naturally. This does mean you will probably have to wait longer for a suitable appointment and I am sorry for that.
When you attend you will be asked to sign a ‘disclaimer’ confirming that you have not travelled to a Covid high-risk country/area in the last 2 weeks, that you do not have any of the publicised symptoms of Covid (e.g.fever, headache, new cough, loss of taste or smell, flu like aches and pains), that no members of your household, support bubble or contacts have had these either and that you have not been asked to self isolate by a public health team member.
You should wear a mask when you come inside the building but you may not need to wear it during a treatment to your face/neck. (I will be using masks and/or visors as well as aprons that are single-use only)
Hand sanitiser is available at both main doors and in the ‘waiting’ area and in the treatment room.
The waiting room will not be available. (but toilets are)
You will be asked to sanitise hands when you enter treatment room. You will be asked to sign a Covid disclaimer each time you attend.
Only one person will be allowed in the treatment room at a time.
I am looking forward to hearing everybody’s news and tales from this weird and also pretty great (at times) Spring/Summer. But! we have to minimise talking during treatments to reduce respiratory spray.
I have updated my Facebook page as well but if you need to contact me please do so in the usual way.
Thank you for reading,
Prices are being reviewed!! Sorry!

Choosing an Electrolysist can be difficult.
Whilst it is essential to look for a practitioner with the best credentials, it is also a good idea to check consumer hair removal web sites and forums to get some insider tips.
You could try:
Hairtell is an international forum for consumers and professionals to share information about hair removal in all its forms (electrolysis, laser, waxing, shaving, patented devices etc) It contains a wealth of knowledge.
Hairshoot Community Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/433337213406384/
The latter is a Facebook Community group by Cherry Tree and international colleagues & may be of help initially as we have many specialist electrolysists poised and ready to help with any queries posted. Our specialists (500+) are based all across the UK, Ireland, Europe, South America, the US, New Zealand, Canada and Australia.
Membership of the B.I.A.E. (British Institute and Association of Electrolysis) www.electrolysis.co.uk provides reassurance that you have found an Electrolysist who is a specialist, and who has successfully taken further practical and written exams to gain a Diploma in Remedial Electrolysis (D.R.E.) and membership of the Institute.
The specialist belonging to the BIAE is also obliged to undertake CPD (Continuing Professional Development) as expected in all professions.
June Adams at CherryTree is both a BIAE (Electrolysis.co.uk) member and examiner and a practicing Dermatology Nurse. (NMC -Nursing and Midwifery Council http://www.nmc.org – No. 81I2217E) – even more assurance that you are in professional hands.
