What is electrolysis? 


Electrolysis is a method of removing hair from areas all over the body. It’s the only FDA-approved method of permanent hair removal and requires several treatments to achieve what the patient wants.


Licensed electrologists use a thin probe to target individual hair follicles, gradually destroying them over time. There are three methods an electrologist may use to accomplish this: galvanic, alternating, or a blend of the two. Once the follicle is destroyed over time, it will no longer be able to produce hairs. Thus, permanently stopping hair growth in the desired region.


Back to school


To become a professional electrologist, you would need to go back to school. New Hampshire requires 1,100 hours of schooling and practical experience. Then you will need to take the NH or MA licensing exam. NH has reciprocity with MA.


Afterward, the license will need to be renewed every two years with 10 hours of continuing education to continue practicing. You’ll learn everything you need to know about what it takes to help each client reach their desired goals.

Areas of study


There are many things to cover during an electrology training course. Here is a list of just a few of the things you’ll be studying during a typical program: 


  • Dermatology
  • Performing Electrolysis Techniques (Galvanic, Thermolysis, Blend)
  • Electricity
  • Disinfection/Sterilization methods
  • Biology
  • Endocrinology
  • Vascular system
  • Nervous system
  • Chemistry
  • Professional Ethics


While it may seem like a lot, you’ll have plenty of time to understand how each of these areas is incorporated into electrolysis. Electrolysis is the only FDA-approved form of permanent hair removal. Therefore, it makes sense that having a background in so many related fields is essential.
