About Electrologists' Association of California

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.


Certified Professional Electrologist Badge

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.

Did you Know?

Electrology is the only hair removal method recognized as permanent by the FDA.

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!

Electrolysis Tip

Talk to your electrologist about any questions or concerns. We want your experience to be as comfortable and effective as possible.

Electrolysis Tip

Clean skin releases unwanted hair more easily. Remove your makeup before your appointment, Remove makeup prior to your electrolysis appointment.so the hair follicles are clean and accessible.

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?

If your electrologist can't see the hairs, they can't treat the hairs. Tweezing, waxing, or threading before or between your hair removal appointments will only reduce the number of hairs your electrologist can remove (treat).

Before and After

Publicity photo of a 25-year-old film/stage actor. The body hair was sculpted, not just removed. Hairs were cleared at the lower pectorals. Hair in the center of the chest was feathered to look normal. The stomach hair was thinned and shaped into a normal centerline. Only electrolysis can produce this natural and undetectable appearance. Results were permanent. (Electrologist: Mike Bono, Santa Barbara.)

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

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.
