With a proven track record since 1875, electrolysis is the only FDA-approved hair removal method that can permanently remove unwanted hair. Not even laser can achieve permanent results.
Electroepilation (Electrolysis) is the only permanent hair removal method known to be effective on all skin and hair types, regardless of the treated area. Over the years, epilating machines have continually become more effective and comfortable. And with new technologies at our disposal, electrolysis can offer all ages and genders highly effective treatments with minimal to zero discomfort. There are even insulated probes that protect the skin surface while providing extra comfort and effectiveness.
Electrolysis is, therefore, the ideal method to rid everyone of unwanted hair for life. Although it requires commitment, electrolysis is safe and has no side effects.
Choose the Right Electrologist
Electrolysis is safe and effective when performed by an electrologist who is board certified. It is important to find an electrologist who is a CPE (a national Certified Professional Electrologist). This means that they have passed a national exam and keep up with required continuing education to maintain the CPE status. Since Texas lacks a requirement for electrologists to be CPEs, when choosing an electrologist it is important to inquire whether they have the national CPE credential. IBC is one of the few clinics in Central Texas that is staffed with a CPE.
The Apilus Platinum epilator from Dectro is currently the most effective and comfortable machine available for electrolysis treatments. In Central Texas, only IBC has the Apilus Platinum, and in Texas and the surrounding states only IBC has an electrologist that is an Académie Apilus National Trainer.
This combination of high levels of expertise and cutting edge equipment are rare and, outside of IBC, exist only on the east and west coasts and in Canada. This is why IBC has clients from all parts of the country who travel to Austin to address their unwanted hair needs.
IBC strictly adheres to the Infection Control Standards set forth by the American Electrology Association, and close attention is also given to other infection control measures, including hand washing, gloves, sterile/disposable probes and sterilization of instruments, to name a few.
