I come from an Italian background and unfortunately I have a lot of facial hair that I would like to get rid of. I pay $60 for an hour session and I'm so happy with my results! It can be pretty painful but you get used to it after a few treatments. I feel so much more feminine now and it was... READ MORE

The reason I'm sharing this review is because the plethora of people recommending this style over laser removal for permanent results. I had real electrolysis done with a needle. It was plenty painful and the hair fell out without resistance which indicated it worked. If your technician needs to... READ MORE

I'll start off by saying that I detest shaving my underarms. For this reason I've sought to permanently remove my under arm hair through electrolysis. I found a deal on Groupon and went today to New Image Electrolysis in Harrison for a free consultation and the electrologist, Maria Rodrigues,... READ MORE

Dr. Rahimi is a top notch dermatologist. I went to see him for a couple fibrous papules/ fibroangiomas on my nose which have been plaguing me for 20 years - they look like pimples that will not go away. I have seen many dermatologists regarding this and many were not willing to help me and did... READ MORE

I have PCOS, so I've had hair on my upper lip pretty much all my life. I used to be able to bleach it using Sally Hansen's products, but the hair eventually grew so thick and long that it was still highly visible even after bleaching. I ended up going to an electrolysis; she charges... READ MORE

When I was 22 I had horrible horrible ingrowns covering my entire bikini line, and i got the whole area, electrolysized. I got sooooo lucky that after trying 2 other electrolysists, (1 too expensive and not so great imo, and 1 clueless)...i found a guy who saved my bikini line. I could swear... READ MORE

Wow...looking back on all my reviews, you would think I am a very unfortunate looking individual, haha...well, my mom took me and my sister to get Electrolysis when we were 24 (six years ago now) due to inheriting her upper lip hair (thanks, mom!). We got a dentist to numb us, so it was... READ MORE

She's the one who told me that the other place was turning down the electrical charge to make me feel better/ and not hurt as much... No pain no GAIN! Turn it up... and get rid of the hairs! Chin Hair.. mostly gone.. and neck hair (the one I used to dig at... GONE)... Bikini area.. happy days!... READ MORE

I went for my first electrolysis treatment at this place and for the first time i didnt breakout nor did i have scabs. I also didnt feel any pulling during the treatment. The technician explained the process and that they use unique needles that are covered by silicone. This may be the reason i... READ MORE

With my electrologist who is very experienced - the hair removal is forever unlike laser which you have to keep gettig re-done as it only reduces hair growth. my understanding is that the FDA only acknowledges electrolysis as the ONLY permanent method of hair removal & i'd have to agree....

I had been to see an amazing woman in Great Neck Long Island who practiced the most ancient form of electrolysis which is galvanic but I wish she was still practicing bc I would go back to her! She cleared the areas she worked on and now I need to get it done again but seem not to react well to... READ MORE

I had a one hour electrolysis treatment of my bikini area this weekend. I'd bought a coupon from google offers so I thought I'd give it a try. The electrologist was very experienced with 30 yrs of experience doing electrolysis. I don't know what method she used. She essentially... READ MORE

I'm not going to lie - it is not pleasant - but it does work. For my 800 I got 6 sessions which covered my lower legs, bikini line and underarms READ MORE

I had my eyebrows treated 3 times in the course of a month. I only wanted the hairs in the unibrow area and a few stragglers close to the eye and way above the brow to be removed as I knew I would never want them and they would never be part of the brow. I drew a thick outline around all the... READ MORE

I've had my mustache(female), underarms, and bikini line treated so far. Mustache took 4-5 15 minute treatments and has been gone for 2 years. Underarms took 2 sessions at 15 minutes each (mind you I had very little underarm hair. And I am still working on my bikini line, about 1 inch on... READ MORE

I had electrolysis on my chin over a period of a year and a half, every two weeks. The hair was fairly coarse with both dark and light hairs interspersed throughout the chin area. After each treatment the area would be quite irritated with bumps on each follicle wherever she treated. Some big... READ MORE

I had a few gray chin hairs that grew over an inch long if I didn't pluck them. Since there weren't many it wasn't a big deal to pull them. Problem was that my eyesight isn't as sharp as it used to be so the hairs could get pretty long before I would see them or think about them... READ MORE
