At the Institute we utilize the best equipment available for both epilating and for sterilization/disinfection purposes.  You will be trained in thermolysis, both flash and manual, the Blend, and single needle galvanic, and phoresis using the latest technology on ALL NEW Equipment in 2016 by Apilus.  

Unlike some other programs, you won't find antiques in our school.  This list is by no means intended to be exhaustive, just illustrative.  Click here to return to the Institute's Home Page or use the links above to navigate our site.


NOTE:  If you already have an epilator, or if you will be working for someone who has a specific type, be sure to let us know that ahead of your onsite time so you can bring it with you to school.  We are able to customize your training so that you are using your target epilator ensuring you are up and running quickly after graduation.

Sterilization Equipment and techniques in use at the Institute includes Dry Heat and Steam (Autoclave) technologies.

We clean instruments such as tweezers using ultrasonic technology.  This graphic and description is typical of the models in use at the facility.

Electrology can be very labor intensive and many an electrologist has sacrificed his or her back and eyes. See how her neck is bent in the picture--even though her posture is excellent and this is a pretty easy angle and area to work on.  Talk about neck pain!  


We believe in developing good ergonomically correct work-habits from the start.  Instead of bending over old-fashioned magnifier lights, we recommend a more ergonomically correct solution, scopes, or loupes. 


Some people prefer to try cheap magnifying glasses, and they work in the short run but think of how close (generally 4 inches or less from your work area!) you have to be.  Orascopes eliminate this problem giving you 30+inches of work space. 


Some programs might show images of students using loupes while looking through an old-fashioned magnifying lamp.  They claim this increases the magnification the user would have.  Orascoptic has commented on the use of loupes such as these in addition to a magnifying light as being an indicator of someone "who doesn't know what they are doing."  As the manufacturer does not recommend combining these two tools (as it causes optical distortion and does not increase the magnification) and is in the words of a sales representative the combination is "just stupid" we do not use the combination here.
