Welcome to the Electrologists' Association of California’s website. Our mission is to provide information for our membership and the general public.
Now over 60 years old, our association was incorporated in 1948. The purpose then, and now, is the same: to be involved in how the electrologist's profession is regulated, and to have an open forum where practitioners can meet to discuss relevant issues. Our central theme is education, for both the practitioner and the public.
We are a member-run organization, and affiliated with the largest electrology association in the world: the American Electrology Association (AEA). With our strong membership, we work together to both protect the public and provide members with a wide range of educational opportunities.
The Electrologists' Association of California (EAC) offers newsletters, meetings and seminars to ensure continual learning in the field of electrology. Ever vigilant about Public Health & Safety, the Electrologists' Association of California (EAC) promotes standards in education, sterilization and advanced training for our professional members.
EAC is affiliated with the American Electrology Association (AEA). The AEA is the largest international electrology membership organization world wide. The AEA and its affiliate states, such as the EAC, provides many programs that benefit the electrologist, the profession and the public. Many of our members have earned the additional credential of CPE (Certified Professional Electrologist) by passing a voluntary certification examination offered by the International Board Certification Committee. CPE's are challenged to improving their knowledge and practice through the AEA's Continuing Education and Recertification programs, which require 75 hours of approved continuing education every five years to recertify.

Clean skin releases unwanted hair more easily. Remove your makeup before your appointment, so the hair follicles are clean and accessible.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
Drinking plenty of water helps unwanted hair slide right out.
Before and After
26-year-old man with excessive beard hair on his neck. He had difficulty shaving this area which often resulted in the skin breaking out and the development of ingrown hairs. The "after" photo shows his neck clear of hair, pustules (breakouts) and ingrown hairs (bumps). Results were permanent.
Did you know?
Gently exfoliating your skin before your treatment opens up the follicles and lets the unwanted hair slide out more easily.
For a more comfortable treatment, avoid caffeine for a few hours before your appointment.
Before and After
22-year-old man wanted his chest hair thinned, but not totally removed. Only electrolysis is able to create a completely natural look by thinning and feathering. Laser cannot duplicate this natural appearance. Results were, of course, permanent.
Did you know?
The hair you see is not all the hair you have. Hair grows in cycles. That's why it takes more than one appointment to permanently clear an area.
Before and After
This is a common eyebrow case. The woman had been tweezing and lost control of the desired shape. As the hairs grew back, the electrologist was able to reshape the eyebrows into a pleasing natural shape. Results were permanent; this woman will never have to pluck her eyebrows again - ever!
Ask your electrologist for aftercare advice. We can recommend the product that is right for your skin and treatment program.
Electrologists' Association of California presents meaningful seminars and programs covering a variety of topics.
