Electrolysis is a field that offers great growth potential, with an increase in demand within transgender treatment and the growing desire to permanantly remove unwanted hair for both women and men.

Electrolysis is the most reliable option available today that has been proven to remove transsexual facial hair permanently. Laser hair removal can be an acceptable or even preferable alternative in some cases, but laser is usually not enough by itself to remove all transsexual facial hair permanently. 

As many beauty schools do not offer the electrolysis diploma as part of a full beauty therapy qualification this will elevate this highly specialist skill to an exclusive level. The electrolysis graduate will be much sought for employment in the beauty world.

On this electrolysis course you will be trained in the short-wave diathermy method of hair removal from all areas of the body and face. This qualification requires you to perform practical assessments on a variety of clients.
