Most people don’t know much about
electrolysis before they go to have the work
done. Because of this, Felice spends time

“Some say it doesn’t and others ﬁnd it no

others, it takes longer and more treatments
How much does it cost?
“Prices are affordable. I offer free
consultations to everyone to help them
determine if they would like to try
electrolysis. I’ve worked with many people
over the years and I know how relieved

it can also work on the underarm, abdomen
legs, breasts or hairline. If you have been
shaving, you do not have to grow your hair
longer for electrolysis — the hair only has

A lot of people tell Felice they wish they

shoulders when they don’t have to worry
about their hair any longer,” she says.
