How To Choose A Laser Or Electrologist Technician

You are bombarded with ads on the television, radio and internet about different hair removal businesses. Each and every one of them makes certain claims and tries to draw you in. With all of the information that we’re given it can be hard to decide who is the best person for you and who will give you the best results. Here are a few tips to help you make the right decision.


It is imperative that your electrolysis technician is licensed to work in their state. In fact, when you first enter the office, look at their license on the wall. If you don’t see it then you should ask for it. You don’t want someone to stick a probe (needle) in you who isn’t qualified.

Many states do not require laser technicians to get certified which can be a problem. In some cases people opt to skip the class and hire someone to give them a crash course in how to do the procedure. This is done in general practices as well as doctor’s offices. Don’t assume that because someone works in the medical field or a day spa that they know what they are doing. Look for the certificate to make sure that they took the class.


Reading online reviews is a great way to find out if the clients of a business are happy with their results. You can get reviews on sites like Yelp as well as on Google.

Ask Around

Who better than your friends, family and colleagues to get an honest opinion from when you’re looking for something as specific as laser and electrolysis hair removal? Let them know what you want to get done and find out who they know, how long they’ve been going and ask about results.

Get References

Don’t be shy about asking the technician for several references. In many cases they will have printouts and in some cases they may even have clients that you can speak to directly.


One of the best ways to find out if you want to get treated by someone is to set up a consultation. The time that you put into meeting with a technician can be highly beneficial for you because you can find out if they are knowledgeable in their field, if you’re comfortable with them and if you feel that they will provide you with results.

You are putting a lot of time and money into getting rid of your unwanted hairs so be sure to do your research.
