Beware of Fake Arizona Electrolysis & Electrology Schools

Beware of Fake Electrolysis and Electrology Diplomas in Arizona


Without one doubt the state Licensed & Registered is your best and only choice to achieve safe permanent hair removal The uneducated unlicensed electrologist cannot compare to the educated state licensed electrologist who spent years of education, study to make the effort to become a state licensed and registered electrologist. In addition, Kimberly Williams, R.E,, Dean was a Guest Lecturer at Harvard Medican School from 1983-1987.

Without one doubt desktop publishing, fake diplomas and rhyming certification titles such as certified professional electrologist are meant to confuse the consumer because it sounds professional. On the other hand the certified professional electrologist certificate title is a cruel hoax meant to confuse clients that they are professionals electrologist. In states with bare minimum requisite coursework with no practical training and examinations are a sham at best. No doubt about it certified professional electrologist, the certified clinical electrologist and the certified medical electrologist titles lack medical theoretical education and practical training. These Desktop Diplomas are strictly for quacks and are obtained through a bogus semi-quasi professional organization that does not require the electrologist to be state licensed and registered to become a member. Their sole purpose is to as appear as a professional electrologist to food the consumer to call them. It is amazing that these people with no education purchase a white lab jacket, white shoes and bogus certificates and they actually believe they are a certified professional electrologist. However a real electrologist will say, Massachusetts state licensed & Registered Electrologist and you can confirm that with my state board.

State is licensing and registration is absolutely the best. If your electrologist has met all the licensing criteria in your state or a state with no licensing, you can be assured that you’ll be treated with the utmost care and professionalism. Certification is like a cheap paint job on a Mercedes however the Mercedes is already gorgeous and why you want a cheap paint job to make it really stand out?


If you are an Arizona resident with an unwanted facial hair problem you are concerned about quality electrolysis for safe permanent hair removal. This article will help you learn how to rate an electrologist. However regarding the lack of a professional education with by an uneducated non-licensed electrologist leave allot to be desired. It is most important that all consumers learn how to evaluate an electrologist to understand the safety of electrolysis and the dangers of hair removal practiced by non-licensed personnel. For the record all competent state licensed and registered electrologists possess a requisite basic fundamental education, which is the cornerstone foundation for her to provide you with a safe comfortable treatment to achieve your goal permanent hair removal. The Electrolysis-Electrology profession in Arizona has always been besieged by exaggerated claims of hair removal methods by uneducated non-licensed electrologists plus other assorted individuals posing and claiming to be self-taught do it yourself Electrologists. Nevertheless our non-licensed certified professional electrologists deceptively advertise amongst us. These unlicensed, poorly trained amateurs never attended a state board approved electrolysis school in any form or manner. On the other hand every consumer has the right to know their Electrologist’s credentials and professional abilities before the start of a treatment. Last but not least always ask them if they are professionally educated state licensed and a registered electrologist.

Boston Electrolysis® is strictly electrolysis and when you walk in my door you do not have to parade by curious chatty hairdressers, receptionist, manicurists, skin care personnel, laser operator’s, Botox injections, high pressured laser closers and make up sales girls.

Below is the Boston Electrolysis Five Star Electrolysis-Electrology rating system, for which I have received negative comments, coupled with harassment and threats fake non-licensed amateurs claiming to be a Certified Professional Electrologist, Certified Clinical Electrologist, and Certified Medical Electrologist. One individual claims to be the only graduate of the Arizona School of Electrolysis and the Arizona School of Electrology which are fabricated schools that never existed. This properly licensed and registered electrologist is fed up with all the hoaxes perpetrated upon our profession by unqualified, uneducated, non-licensed electrologists. For the record I am the only licensed and registered electrologist in Arizona that provides every patient with a written guarantee of excellence.


Kimberly Williams, R.E., Dean Written Guarantee of Excellence

Arizona’s first and only electrologist who guarantees in writing that after one treatment, if you can locate a better electrologist, brings me the receipt and I will refund half your first treatment fee up to a half-four. In addition to that, even on difficult cases, I can work at one-third to one-fourth the time of the average electrologist – licensed or unlicensed. I also guarantee that you will have the most comfortable treatment with no scabbing, scarring or pitting as direct result of my treatments©.

How To Rate An Electrologist

Five stars is always the best rating. It means that your Electrologist is educated, trained, tested and is a State Licensed and Registered Electrologist with 1100 of training in scientific theory and the practical application of electrolysis. Five Star Electrologists have attended and graduated from a state accredited and nationally approved and electrolysis school. They have also taken a dual written and practical State Board of Electrologists examination and successfully passed them, and are currently a licensed and registered as an electrologist. Licensed and registered have a responsibility to obey the rules and regulations of their State Board.

Even though my practice is in Scottsdale, Arizona I run it as if it were in Massachusetts. That means my office, equipment and treatments are accountable to a State Board Inspector who could walk in at any time and inspect my office. This includes equipment, sterilization and all professional requirements. If you are unconvinced about your Electrologist’s credentials, ask for their pocket license or call their State Board to verify them if you are doubtful. This rating system also includes Electrologists who attended a school with a clearly defined curriculum in which the students are trained by states licensed and Registered Electrologists-Instructors’ with a minimum of five years experience using a late model computerized epilators.

 Four Stars indicate that an Electrologist has completed a total of 500 hundred hours of coursework, in a state that requires a license and registration of electrologists for its residents. These out of state courses are designed for electrologists who live in a state, such as Arizona, which has no State Board that license and register electrologists. Any electrologist that has gone out of State and successfully passed a dual State Board electrolysis school examination is to be commended. They demonstrate how essential it is for an electrologist to be professionally trained in a state that requires a license and registration for their residents. Remember always authenticate the school that they claim to have graduated from with their State Board of Electrologists. If doubtful call the state board that approved the school that trained them. For confirmation of electrolysis education in Arizona, call the Arizona State Board of Post Secondary Education at 602-542-5769 and ask for Keith Blanchard, Deputy Director or email him

Boston Electrolysis® Five Star Electrolysis-Rating System




Three Stars define an Electrologist who has attended a school where there is no state board and license and registration for electrologists. These Electrologists should have at have completed a minimum of 450 hundred hour course. One must be cautious if the Electrologist’s instructors where not licensed and registered electrologists themselves, as this will directly affect the quality of the training, and your treatments. Always beware of “Certified Instructors”. Electrolysis is a profession that cannot be passed down from one unlicensed electrologist to another without a serious loss of competence, safety and quality.


Boston School of Electrolysis® Five Star Rating System





Two stars are for non-licensed and non-registered electrologists who have taken a course of 120 hours to 320 hours or less. These electrologists purchase memberships and credentials to electrologists’ associations that do not require an electrologist to be licensed and registered in addition they use counterfeit bloated certificates, exaggerated titles and fancy schmancy ornate diplomas to appear professional. They often claim they are a certified professional electrologist. They put multiple initials after their names and list non-licensed organizations there members of to look impressive, but you would be surprised that you could complete their 50, 12O to 320 hour course they took in with ease. You would also be amazed that some organizations are too lax in checking credentials. However ask yourself would you go to physician who took such a course? These quick-buck diplomas are often called “Certified Professional Electrologist”, Professionally Certified Instructed” and so on. Whenever you see “Certified” that means that 99 3/4 of them are non-licensed and non-electrologists. Beware of these electrologists because they have minimal rock bottom training from other uneducated non-licensed certified professional electrologist. Consumer beware to 120 to 300 hours of do it yourself home study aware that this is not a professional degree. One should doubt anyone who claims a standard of professional ability from these correspondence and certification courses. You should ask yourself how one non-licensed electrologist can confer a professional title on another one.

The Five Star Electrolysis-Electrology-Blend Rating System



Tsk, tsk and tsk the one star electrologist limit their practice to states where there is no state board of electrologists, because they know they would be shut down by a state board for the simple reason that their credentials and lack of professional training and ethics would not survive professional scrutiny a regulated State Board of Electrologist. These so-called electrologists have no scruples or ethics and adopt any title they see fit and their training is minimal with the average being 50 to 120 hours and very often they use faddish, unproven treatments from a bogus curriculum. They use lasers, electric tweezers, microwave treatments, gels, ointments, and they will tell you electrolysis is painful when it is not. After advertising themselves as electrologists they will switch you over to the dangerous ineffective laser, microwave, and intense light treatments often without a physician present, as required by law. They lie to you while telling you the laser isn’t painful when the F.D.A. has ruled that it’s illegal for them to advertise or claim permanent and painless hair removal. They also illegally advertise permanent hair removal by laser. The F.D.A. has ruled that only Electrologists may advertise “Permanent Hair Removal


Their electrolysis treatments are so painful because of their complete lack of scientific theory and training in the practical application of electrolysis. To survive in business they use Novacain and Lidocaine injections that have been banned by regulated State Board of electrologists. It is very easy for them to switch you over to a laser treatment when you have unknowingly signed a consent form to have electrolysis treatments, unless you read the fine print carefully. When in Arizona beware of certified electrologists and if you have the slightest doubt or inkling they are not licensed call their state board of electrologists for verification. Make sure you call a there State Board Of Electrologists, not an electrolysis association that they claim they belong to.


Warning when an uneducated non-electrologist advertise they provide Lidocaine and Novacain Injections to achieve pain free electrolysis treatments their saying they lack a professional education which results in painful electrolysis treatments period.


Hair Removal Facts & Warnings



It’s a known fact that certification titles do not guarantee a person is a state licensed and registered electrologist and good example is the 120-hour and 320-hour Certified Professional Electrologist course. Always remember non-licensed electrologists try to appear and want you to believe they are licensed and registered as an electrologist, example they use Jane Doe, C.P.E. Certified Professional Electrologist. Bonafide licensed and registered electrologists will always advertise, Kimberly Williams, R.E., Massachusetts Licensed & Registered electrologist.

For the record it is my professional opinion that the Certified Professional Electrologist 120-and 320 hour certification course by itself does not prepare a layperson in any form or manner to be able to perform a safe competent electrolysis treatment. These questionable electrolysis certifications courses and diplomas were never meant to be a standalone electrolysis training credential and they lack practical application testing. The tests are simple grade school true and false and multiple choice questions do not require the electrologist to be tested for the practical application of electrolysis in any form or manner. However they bestow ornate diplomas and titles with credentials upon undeserving frauds who think that it’s alright to purchase an education and their credentials even the course they took was from 50m 120 and 320 hours long. Additionally the certification tests are elementary grade school level hoaxes consisting of simple true and false and multiple-choice questions. In addition they do not require a high school diploma, background check nor do they require individuals to take an electrolysis “Practical Application” examination in any form or manner to prove they are competent. However in the end these desktop diploma mills turn out Certified Quacks that are an insult to honest stare licensed and registered electrologists that earned their credentials and successfully completed an accredited electrolysis school and passed their dual state board examinations.

Consumer beware I have compiled a list of titles used by self-taught uneducated non-licensed electrologists. Other ways that non-licensed electrologists try to appear as licensed electrologists is to join multiple electrolysis associations, who do not require an electrologist to be educated, state licensed and registered as an electrologist for membership. I repeat these associations do not emphasize nor require state license and registration as an electrologist for membership nevertheless they wholeheartedly promote the proliferation of themselves as uneducated non-licensed Electrologists.
