The History of Hair Removal

Hair removal has been a human obsession since the days of ancient Egypt. Women used abrasives and chemical substances like our present day depilatories. Other hair removal methods have included pumice stone, quicklime, sharpened stones and seashells. But the results were always the same, the hair returned.

Then in 1875, Dr. Charles Michel, an ophthalmologist, developed a technique to remove ingrown eyelashes. Utilizing a fine wire attached to a battery, a small amount of electrical current destroyed the follicle forever. From that day to the present, electrolysis is still recognized as the only safe, effective and permanent form of hair removal.
