Electrolysis for Teens and Adolescents
A Lifetime of Exciting Adventures Patiently Await You!
Puberty is one of the most significant rites of passage in a person’s life. It marks the transition from childhood to young adulthood and along with it come intense hormonal changes. What does that mean? Well, you may grow extra hair in places where it shouldn’t. For girls, you may grow upper lip hair that makes you feel like you have a moustache. For boys, you may grow thick eyebrows that make you feel like you have only one and not two eyebrows. Don’t be embarrassed! This hair may be unwanted, but it is completely normal. If you are a young person reading this, talk to your parents or a trusted adult who cares about your well-being. If you’re a parent or guardian, finding a Certified Electrologist to assess your child's unwanted hair problem can present them with a permanent solution rather than a lifetime of using temporary methods of hair removal such as tweezing, shaving, threading, depilatory creams, waxing, bleaching or abrasives like pumice stones or harsh scrubbers. Children under the age of 16 must provide signed consent from a parent or guardian.
