Certified electrologist Susan Ullmann has one main goal: to make you feel better about yourself. She uses electrolysis—a hair-removal technique that uses pulses of electricity—to remove unwanted hair. Because electricity is just cooled off sunlight, Ullmann can use it to treat all types of hair and skin.
The advantage of electrolysis is its versatility?its low-level electric currents can remove any color of hair from skin of any tone. This is why, at Brick and Monmouth Electrolysis, Lorraine Cupolo-Fetherman, LE, CPE, and her team of fellow licensed professional electrologists specialize in this established method of hair removal. During electrolysis sessions, they adhere to the highest standards of sterilization and perform treatments with a gentle method. Additionally, the team members are mindful of patient comfort before, during, and after treatments. For example, staffers schedule complimentary consultations and never hesitate to apply topical anesthesia or dress up as a teddy bear if needed.

What?s your favorite part about your job?
I enjoy the clients' reaction when they realize, "Yes this works." When my clients reach the finish line, their joy is my reward.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a client?
I had a tiny, lively elderly lady ask me to get rid of her hair because she felt more like a grandpa instead of a grandma. When she was done, she got off of the table and jumped up and down and said, "I am no more Grandpa; I am Grandma again!" She was so happy.
What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
I can truly relate to their hair issues and how it affects their self-esteem. I put my clients at ease immediately by showing them how much I understand their feelings. I explain the procedure in detail and let them know why electrolysis works. All questions are answered to the best of my ability before I begin treatments.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
In this day and age, everyone wants a quick fix for their problems. The most effective fix is not always the quickest. Clients need to educate themselves before using alternative hair-removal methods so they can understand why their hairs are increasing and not decreasing. This electrolysis, unlike other kinds, truly works on all skin colors and hair types and textures. The best investment is the one you make on yourself.
