My Origin Story: The Birth of One of the Best Boston Spas for Electrolysis, Laser Hair Removal & Skin Care

home electrolysis kitI’m confident enough to say that, to my clients, I am a superhero. A woman performing wonders with a wand instead of a whip. My high tech toy is a laser. And like every comic book character worth her salt, there’s an origin story. Here’s mine.

When I was fourteen, I had a crush on “Larry.” We were in Drama class together. As it usually happens, the girls far outnumbered the boys, so, whenever we could, we’d change a male part to a female role.

The problem? This was back in ancient times, before cut, paste, edit, print. This meant copies of all the scripts were jumbled; not all the “hes” and “shes” would get fixed. I mean, what drama teacher wants to waste time and money on that?

After all, who was really gonna mess up and confuse a girl with a boy when delivering their lines? Right? Right?!?

DIRECTOR: Larry, you keep forgetting to refer to Bridget as a girl.

LARRY: Sorry. The moustache threw me.


Sigh …

I think my next blog post will discuss why all boys should be sent to a desert island when they turn 14 and not be allowed off until they’re 24. (Actually, Larry was a really funny dude. Really.)

Anyway, when I got home, I dragged my Mom to the drug store to get my first bottle of Nair … aaaaaaaand … it was ON!!!

Like any junkie, I became obsessed, moving from the gateway drug of hair removal cream into nail clippers and tweezers before upgrading to the heavier stuff: waxing, professional grooming scissors, and even a home electrolysis kit. Yep. That kit was 100% street legal (and I’ll tell you more about that one in a future post that I’ll write after I talk about boys and desert islands).

Unfortunately, even with all my efforts, the hair kept coming back. With a vengeance.  Undeterred, I desperately scoured the Yellow Pages for hair removal services. And there it was: ELECTROLYSIS. Sweet!! There were people who actually did this for a living!

My electrologist changed my life, both personally and professionally. My self-confidence sky rocketed! And later on I thought, how cool would it be to do that for someone else? Of course, I didn’t stop with just an electroogy license. Because I am, after all, a junkie.  My street cred would not have been complete without mastering laser hair removal and skin care as well.

So that’s the story of why I do what I do.

I make Bostonians more beautiful everyday.

Oh, and by the way, I am TOTALLY over “Larry!” 😉
