Electrolysis is the only method of hair removal which is allowed, by law, to be described as permanent.

Update as at 23/11/2023
Things that remain in place in re Covid 19 to keep the office environment and all of us safe:
VENTILATION: Window/door open as wide as possible and for as long as possible during office hours.
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”
FACE COVERINGS: there is no requirement for face coverings but many people still use them. I have a fresh supply available for anyone to use and if you would prefer me to wear one during treatments I am happy to do so. I can also use a visor.
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.
