B & B Electrolysis opens business

Woodbury resident Abby Mustapha recently opened B & B Electrolysis, where she provides permanent hair removal services for men and women.

"I have opened B & B Electrolysis to provide permanent hair removal for men and women who do not want or cannot afford laser treatments," Mustapha said. "Electrolysis removes individual hairs from the face or body using short-wave radio frequency. It is a safe and effective method that has existed for many years."

Electrolysis devices, called epilators, destroy the hair's growth center by emitting a short-wave radio frequency. The electrologist inserts a fine probe into the hair follicle at the surface of the skin and then removes the hair with forceps.

Mustapha earned her electrolysis certification earlier this year, after completing training at Dectro.

To schedule an appointment or obtain more information about B & B Electrolysis, call (651) 253-6632.
