Our electrical epilation course (Short-wave Diathermy & Blend Method) is designed to train and qualify the student as an electrologist and enable them to safely and effectively provide electrical epilation for clients. 

The basis of effective electrical epilation lies in a complete knowledge by the therapist of the anatomical structures and systems in the area of treatment, together with the understanding of the methods and application of electrical epilation techniques.  This is designed to meet the needs of clients, whilst working in a safe and secure manner.  It also leads to further qualifications in advanced epilation and/or onto Level 4 Laser & Light Therapy.

The current, which is delivered at the root of the hair, provides heat that dries out the moisture, the living cells, and the blood supply, thus destroying it and preventing the hair from growing back.
