Back to Basics

Written by Nicki Arthur on August 28th, 2014.      0 comments

 
The Blend method of electrolysis was invented by Arthur Hinkel and Henri Saint-Pierre in 1938 and has long been the stand alone and preferred method of electrical epilation available today for hair removal and the treatment of vascular lesions.
It has a long and consistent history of reliability and effectiveness.

For hair removal, hair colour, being either grey or blond does not affect the outcome if the treatment is performed with knowledge and skill.

The increase in Intense Pulsed Light treatment (for pigmented hair) has impacted on the number of clinics offering electrology treatment. However, where do clients turn for treatment of light coloured hair growth that IPL treatments will not target? IPL and Electrolysis work synergistically together and therefore offer the client the best outcome for permanent hair reduction.

So why, when we know how effective this modality is, is there a decline in qualified practitioners entering the industry and offering this treatment? Across New Zealand and Australia there is a shortage of therapists emerging from training with electrology skills.

Could  it be that training  institutions are giving student therapists the choice whether they train and sit examinations? Electrolysis should be a stable in the student's repertoire the same as a facial or a manicure would be. The fact that electrolysis is a learnt skill and one that needs persistent  practice and critiquing may be a barrier for some students, therefore they opt out by not completing it during their training. This is an alarming statement but reflects the feedback from employers in our industry when they are unable to find staff with an electrolysis qualification.

How can we address this shortage and encourage students to pursue an electrolysis qualification?
  • Inform them of the relevance of this modality and the increase in job prospects.
  • Up-skill lecturers in the Progressive Two-Handed Blend technique so our students are taught the  latest techniques giving quantifiable results.
  • Establish a forum through social media to contact ,consult  and support the practicing electrologist in her work
