Electrolysis is the only FDA-approved method of permanent hair removal that can be used on all hair types and skin tones. Electrolysis works by inserting a tiny probe into the hair follicle and emitting a current to destroy the hair. There are three types of current used: thermolysis (a high frequency current), galvanic current, and blend, which is a combination of the two.
Requirements to perform electrolysis vary widely from state to state. Currently, 32 states have formal requirements in place to perform this procedure. Some states require 400 hours in training and others as much as 1,000! Other states may allow an apprenticeship program in lieu of formal training. Some states regulate electrolysis through the cosmetology board, and others regulate through the board of health. Start by contacting the cosmetology board or the board of health to determine the regulations in your area.
For information on scope of practice by state, ASCP members can go to the Advanced Esthetics State Regulation Info page.
Like all hair removal services, electrolysis requires a protocol of regularly scheduled appointments to effectively target the hair. On average, clients will return every 4–6 weeks and can expect a full treatment to take up to 18 months depending on the body area being treated, the hair type, and skin type.
Each state has varying rules and regulations. While not all states have formal requirements in place, as long as you are following the rules and regulations established by your state and also carry an esthetic or cosmetology license, you are eligible for coverage.
Although the term “laser electrolysis” is sometimes advertised, laser and electrolysis are two separate modalities. While not everyone is a candidate for procedures like laser hair removal—it is considered semi-permanent and results are based on skin color, hair color, etc.—Electrolysis is filling the void for those wishing to permanently remove hair.
If you are performing additional advanced modalities like laser hair removal, radio frequency, or microneedling (to name a few), these advanced esthetic procedures can be added to your electrolysis coverage for as little as $0.
Electrolysis devices should be professional devices that are FDA-approved for the intended use of hair removal. Home devices are marketed to the consumer but may not be as effective and leave room for scarring, infection, and regrowth.
