Description

Electrolysis is safe and effective when performed by an electrologist who is board certified. It is important to find an electrologist who is a CPE (a National Certified Professional Electrologist). This means that they have passed a national exam and keep up with required continuing education to maintain the CPE status. Since Texas lacks a requirement for electrologists to be CPEs, when choosing an electrologist it is important to inquire whether they have the national CPE credential. IBC is one of the few clinics in Central Texas that is staffed with a CPE. The Apilus Platinum epilator from Dectro is currently the most effective and comfortable machine available for electrolysis treatments. In Central Texas, only IBC has the Apilus X-Cell, and in Texas and the surrounding states only IBC has an electrologist that is an Académie Apilus National Trainer. This combination of high levels of expertise and cutting edge equipment are rare and, outside of IBC, exist only on the east and west coasts and in Canada. This is why IBC has clients from all parts of the country who travel to Austin to address their unwanted hair needs. IBC strictly adheres to the Infection Control Standards set forth by the American Electrology Association, and close attention is also given to other infection control measures, including hand washing, gloves, sterile/disposable probes and sterilization of instruments, to name a few.

Special Instructions

To maximize the effectiveness of each treatment, please do the following before each appointment. - Apply moisturizing cream on the area to be treated every day, twice a day, for the 7 days leading up to each appointment. Electrolysis is most effective when the hair follicles are well hydrated, so we cannot stress this point enough! - Drink plenty of water every day, not just before you come to the office. If it is very cold or hot outside, water with electrolytes is recommended. - Avoid caffeine on the day of and the day before your appointment. Caffeine can stimulate nerve endings, making you more sensitive to treatment. - Avoid rushing prior to your appointment which can make you tense and nervous. Arrive at the office early to allow yourself ample time to relax. - If you are very sensitive, take aspirin, Advil, Aleve, etc., prior to your treatment to decrease your sensitivity. - If your treatment area includes the eyebrow, please remove your contact lenses before the treatment. - The following products are contraindicated for use with electrolysis, and their use should be discontinued prior to each appointment by the periods given: Accutane (3 months), Retin A (3 weeks). - Bathe prior to your appointment as needed to ensure a hygienic treatment area. - During Your Appointment, before electrolysis begins, the skin will be cleansed with an antibacterial lotion.
