Short hair, long hair, thin hair, rough hair… no more hair! You dream of becoming a professional in permanent hair removal but don’t know which school to choose for your course in electrolysis? In many countries such as Canada, you have two choices: private or public.
This is a question that gets asked time and time again, but to which it is very hard to give a precise answer. Indeed, we do not claim to have the ability to determine in advance the duration of a complete electroepilation treatment for every client and every region; the evaluation is always approximate, because many factors directly influence treatment planification.

It’s a fact, we don’t know very much about our body hair. Probably in part because its growth occurs slowly, and that it falls without us noticing, except, that is, when we take a peek at our shower drain! Such ignorance makes for a certain amount of misconceptions about hair that we should dispel, if only to help us choose what type of epilation procedure is right for us. Let us first get rid of the notion that hair grows… and “re-grows”, once cut or shaven. Hair will only resume its natural growth, and will fall eventually, before being replaced by a brand new hair. But then, how does that happen, exactly?
In our last blog post we went through a brief overview of the 30-year history of APILUS, Dectro’s flagship brand. Yet there is another interesting story to tell, of what went before APILUS. So how and why did this spirit of innovation arise in the first place?
In September 1989, Dectro launched its first Apilus-branded product on the market, the Electropil. Since then, the name Apilus has become synonymous with innovation in the field of permanent hair removal. As we reach this 30-year milestone, we would like to invite you to accompany us, as we go through the highlights in the history of Apilus, the global reference in electroepilation.
Whenever we embark on a career change, the instinct is to look for the very best training available. And a healthy instinct it surely is! As far as preparation for a career in beauty and hair removal is concerned, Académie Dectro stands as the natural choice: quality teaching, offered by passionate professionals, and supported by the strength of a well-respected manufacturer.
Because it is the most visible and recognizable part of ourselves, we take special care of our faces. And as well we should! This is also true of hair removal.
On January 27th and 28th, the first Modern Electrolysis Symposium was held at the Azimut-Smolenskaya Hotel in Moscow, Russia. And what a resounding success it was! The event was organized by our distributors in Russia and Ukraine, Epil-Pro Academy, and drew nearly a hundred participants from the region and beyond. Internationally renowned electrologists were also among the headline speakers, such as Mrs Janice Brown of House of Famuir in England, Mrs Maria Karabournioti of Beauté Marine in Greece and Mrs Daryna Blintsova of Epil-Pro in Russia. Браво (bravo) to the symposium’s organisers, speakers and participants!
Ingrown hairs are one of life’s small, but persistent annoyances which we would gladly do without. But to go about this, one would have to first know what we are dealing with. For knowing is half the battle, right?
Hair Removal and Sisyphus’s Rock
Do you know the Greek myth of Sisyphus? After a life spent cheating the gods of Olympus, Sisyphus is sentenced to eternally haul a heavy rock up a mountain. Yet once he reaches the top, the rock always tumbles down the other side, forcing the hapless hero to start the journey all over again, and again, and again. Think Groundhog Day, minus the laughs.
And What Does Hair Removal Have to Do With This?
