I totally agree with going to a school, it is a great way to save money. Just ask for a student who is close to graduating.

Have you ever noticed that when you go to an electrology school, you ask to have treatment from only the students who are near graduation, and the teacher tells you that these are the students who are close to graduating, and yet you don't see anybody sitting in the corner reading a book and no other room that could be hiding any unseen students?

James,
I do not know which schools you are talking about, but having attended school, there were times when students were in the back room studying and taking tests while others were being treated. Hours were being tracked, and students needed to have so many hours before they could progress off of arms and legs and onto facial areas.
For those near Long Beach, California... American Institute of Education is in my opinion a very good place to save money on the cost of electrolysis. What others may not realize, is that the school does also have a classroom via another entrance next door that is also utilized..
Having electrolysis by senior students however, I believe is a little more costly than just having any student perform the electrolysis.

If she has dark coarse hair, it is one of the easiest and cheapest areas to treat with a good laser machine. It would take around 6 treatments at $50-125 each, spaced 8-12 weeks apart. This area and bikini was the best thing I have done.

Well that's manageable. I was nervous that it might cost more. Thanks lagirl. Will talk about this to her later.

My wife told me she wanted to do the Gentlelase treatment she read about in this article (http://www.body-philosophy.net/Gentlelase_hair_removal)

since it's supposed to be less painful than electrolysis. It does cost more than the treatments lagirl quoted ($500 each but only 4 treatments). What kind of laser machine were you referring too? Would it be possible to find Gentlelase treatments at the same price you quoted or is it really just more expensive? Thanks again.

A tip to save time in treatment with Electrolysis:
If your electrologist giving consent and the area requires it, you can stretch your skin. Thus facilitate the work and your electrologist remove more hairs in less time.

LASER HURTS! Electrolysis can hurt for this area, but it hurts much, much less if the electrologist has invested in the newer technology available right this minute and is skilled at using the newer technology.


$500.00 for one underarm treatment is not right!!! Are you doubly sure that you heard this correctly? Please check again. Underarms should be in the range LAgirl reported.
