Hi! My name is Bonnie Sartelle. I have been receiving electrolysis treatments since I was 14 years old. I know what it is like to deal with those unwanted hairs as I suffered from embarrassing hairs on my upper lip starting in middle school. I began my electrolysis treatments the summer before high school and have never looked back! I loved what electrolysis did for my self-confidence and self-esteem so much that I continued with my treatments on different areas of my body. Later I decided that I wanted to help other people achieve that same level of self-confidence that comes from the freedom of being hair free. Once I graduated from the extensive 1100 hour program at New England Institute of Electrolysis in 2003, I became licensed in the State of New Hampshire where I opened my own electrolysis business. I try to make all my clients feel welcomed in my office, my hope is that they feel relaxed and comfortable as if they were at home. I believe that my clients and I are working together to achieve that smooth hair free skin they seek!
Electrolysis remains the only permanent method recognized by the FDA to remove unwanted hair. This is achieved by inserting a tiny sterilized, disposable filament called a probe into the hair follicle next to the hair shaft inducing a small amount of electricity that causes a gradual destruction of the hair germ cells at the bottom of the follicle making it unable to produce a hair. There are three methods used in electrolysis:Short Wave,Galvanic and Blend. Electrolysis is effective on all hair and skin types and is achieved over a series of treatments. Here at Bonnie's Electrolysis, I use all three methods during your treatments depending on the type of hairs that I encounter. With your feedback, we will work together to decide what is the best treatment option for you!
