At the beginning I though that France was the only country in the world where I could not work because the law forbid non-physician to practice electrolysis hair removal.

However I learned from clients and colleagues that this is the same situation in Belorus (a dictatorial country near to Russia) and Algery (in the north of Africa). Maybe the last one received the French law as an heritage since Algery was colonized by French in the 19th century. However I don’t know why it is happening in Belorus... they also think that only doctors can provide electrolysis.

In these 3 countries, people suffer from the lack of good electrologists. That’s a shame.

Last year a young girl from Algery contacted me for electrolysis: she couldn’t find any professionals there and she couldn’t travel to get the treatment done. Sad situation.

Hopefully here in Spain, we can learn electrolysis during 2 years course of “superior beautician technician”) and practice it. It is a very interesting course (we learn a lot of things such as lymphatic drainage, the human body and phisiology, sterilization, electrical currents in the aesthetic field, laser hair removal, beauty treatments...) however the electrolysis course is not very good.

So it is not perfect situation since there is still a lot of mistakes about electrolysis in school but at least here we can legally practice and work.
