About Epilation
Epilation is used in beauty salons in order to remove superfluous or unwanted hair by passing an electric current through the hair root.

About Our Epilation Course
Our Epilation course covers the knowledge about two most needed forms of epilation – the Blend Method and the Short Wave Diathermy Metod. The Blend method of electrolysis uses both a high frequency and direct current. This method is often reported to be the most comfortable and the most effective. Short Wave Diathermy is a method of electrolysis using a high frequency current. The benefits of this method are: quickness and suitable for almost all skin types. During the course you will also learn about the professional conduct and business awareness.
