Electrolysis is a method of permanent hair removal. It uses a small, fine needle (probe) that is inserted into the hair follicle. An electric current is then applied to the needle, which destroys the hair growth cells, preventing future hair growth in that follicle. However, it takes several sessions for permanent results because... science. Hair follicles are intricate parts of our body that are always changing (More info comes with your consultation). This procedure can be used on any part of the body and is suitable for people of all skin and hair types. It is considered the only truly permanent hair removal method, as other methods such as laser hair removal only temporarily reduce the growth of hair.
Yaheidy Mendoza L.E. and Certified Professional Electrologist
As a licensed electrologist (2017) with certifications dating back to 2019, I have a wide range of experience working with clients of all skin and hair types. My expertise lies in working with women, particularly those with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), as well as transgender women, to remove hair that may cause dysmorphia, particularly on the face and in pre-surgery areas. Additionally, I have experience working with male clients, providing services such as removing hair from the back, ears, and beard/cheek areas. Through electrolysis, I am able to offer a permanent hair removal solution for all clients.

Most clients that qualify for smaller appointments dont have hormonal imbalances that may cause excess hair in these areas.
These are is ideal for clients That have excess hair because of a hormonal illness such as pcos, also for my transgender clients, and just high volume area clearances.
Yaheidy is professional and has a great personality! Electrolysis isn’t exactly fun, but she somehow makes it enjoyable. You always feel welcome and cared for with her and she’s always ensuring you are as comfortable as possible! 10/10 absolutely recommend!
I went to Yaheidy at a really vulnerable time (the 3 month window before bottom surgery!), and she made me feel so safe while also doing a wonderful job. I highly recommend Yaheidy to anyone looking for permanent hair removal — great person and great at what she does.
I've been going to Yaheidy for electrolysis for 2.5 years. She guessed that we'd need about 3 years, and we're ahead of that because of how fast she is. My results are exactly what I needed and wanted, and on top of it all, she does a great job with pain control!
