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)
Update as at 8/4/22:
Things that remain in place in re Covid 19 to keep the office environment and all of us safe:
VENTILATION: Window open as wide as possible and for as long as possible during office hours. Door also open between clients.
Allowing at least 30 minutes between clients (except on the odd occasion when i’m running late)
RISK MITIGATION; I’ve done a “Sensible Risk Assessment” course with HSE and my risk assessment is on display and updated monthly
FACE COVERINGS: The requirement for face coverings is still in place for now but may soon be lifted. Once the rule is lifted I think the choice will be for the individual to make. I appreciate the wearing of masks but understand that not everyone finds it easy to do so. If you are wearing one you can remove it once I’m all PPE’d up. I am continuing to use masks and visors for the time being. A supply of fresh masks is available for anyone who needs one.
SANITISING: Hand sanitiser is available in the ‘waiting’ area and in the treatment room.
You will be asked to sanitise hands when you enter treatment room.
SPACE: The waiting room will not be available for now. (but toilets are)
Only one person will be allowed in the treatment room at a time. (Exceptions will be made for anyone with need of a companion)

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.

The specialist belonging to the BIAE is also obliged to undertake CPD (Continuing Professional Development) as expected in all professions.
