Michael,

I love your story about Daniel Eastman (D.E.)! Sometimes I wish I could go back in time! It seems like things were more fun!

Thanks again for your additional input to my situation. Hopefully I can calm the client or at least get her to understand that electrolysis takes time!

There certainly was more variety in everything. More ideas, more different applications, and many more manufacturers of machines.

Kree, Hoffman, Sudonna, Proteus, Gentronics, Hinkel, Fischer, and small manufacturers such as Westrex, Mogilner, Juniper & Norris (and others) made epilators back in the day. All are gone.

Regulations destroyed American industry.

The regulations got more-and-more extreme, and eventually not worth it! Such regulations can be somewhat averted by manufacturing outside the US. However, strict requirements must be met upon entry.

Add to that the pressure of laser and the loss of market and we have the reality of today.

Eventually, medical spas might see the future of electrolysis (one way or another) and start adapting. When that happens, we might see new industries emerge? Right now the "market" is too small for a dedicated "start-up." The companies that DID survive diversified into other devices (such as beauty equipment).

Extreme State regulations have also greatly limited new electrologists coming into the field. For example, in California we had an apprentice program that required a full year of apprenticeship (already too long). NOW, the State requires TWO full years of full-time office (apprentice) instruction to qualify for a license. (Going to a school, you can qualify in 3-months.)

Money interests are always behind so-called "safety" regulations.
