As far back as I remember I’ve been embarrassed by my excessive body hair. When I reached puberty, I became even more self-conscience as the hair growth increased on my face and body. I tried many types of temporary methods to no satisfaction.
In my late teens I finally decided to have a consultation for electrolysis and decided to give electrolysis a try. I quickly realized that electrolysis was the only solution for me. As the treatments progressed I not only got rid of my unwanted hair permanently, but I also noticed an increase in my self-confidence. It was an easy decision to continue with electrolysis and have one area of my body cleared after another. I’m a satisfied electrolysis client and proud to be an example and be able to share with others that electrolysis really works! I was so pleased by the results that I wanted to pursue a career in electrolysis.
I graduated from the Kree Institute of Electrolysis in New York City. After returning home to Ottawa I was employed as an electrologist, but I couldn’t continue to work under the poor conditions and with the antiquated equipment.
I decided to open my own electrolysis clinic, where I had the liberty to operate in a professional manner and work with state of the art technology. I opened Kathryn’s Electrolysis Ltd. and over several years expanded to become the largest electrolysis clinic in Ottawa. In 1999 I graduated as a laser technician. Although I worked for a few years part time as a laser technician, I continued to operate my electrolysis business; I no longer provide laser hair removal services given the superior results of electrolysis.
In 2002, I sold Kathryn’s Electrolysis and moved to Kingston, ON, where I established Caress Electrolysis. When I returned to Ottawa in 2006, I reopened Caress. I am pleased to say that within a few years Caress Electrolysis Ltd. is now the leading electrolysis clinic in Ottawa.
I continually update my education to stay fresh and current with new advances and technology. In 2011, I graduated in the practice of thermo coagulation and expanded our services at Caress to include the treatment of skin anomalies, such as skin tags, cherry angiomas, facial capillaries, keratoses, milia, and angiokeratomas.
I am professional and discreet. Clients describe me as being friendly, trustworthy, calm and I have been told that I have caring hands. I believe I can relate with clients as I have experienced the burden of excessive hair. I am so delighted to have found such a rewarding career, one in which I am so passionate. Every day I look forward to assisting clients to restore their beauty and helping to improve their self-confidence. I welcome the opportunity to do the same for you!
I graduated from The Ottawa School of Electrolysis in 1986. After graduation I joined Kathryn and her staff at Kathryn’s Electrolysis Ltd., which Kathryn Hay owned and operated at the time.
Later I branched out on my own and started Jane’s Electrolysis Salon in the west end of Ottawa and then later moved my business to the Kanata area.
Kathryn’s Electrolysis was sold when Kathryn moved to Kingston. Upon her return to Ottawa in 2006 she opened Caress Electrolysis. I was pleased to resume my professional relationship with Kathryn and became the second electrologist at Caress.
I feel honoured to be able to work as an electrologist and I believe that my clients concerns are my passion. I am a friendly, caring person who is dedicated to helping people eliminate their unwanted hair problems and enhance their beauty and self confidence. I am proud to be part of the professional team at Caress Electrolysis; which consists of a select group of electrologist’s committed to the betterment of each and every client.
In 2011, I graduated in the practice of thermo coagulation, which include the treatment of skin anomalies, such as skin tags, cherry angiomas, facial capillaries, keratoses, milia, and angiokeratomas.
I was born and raised in Ottawa to loving parents and the youngest of five girls. My family also had a farm around Manotick, where in my youth; I spent many weekends and summers riding horses. I am happily married to Raymond Smith, who trains and owns thoroughbred race horses.
I graduated from the electrolysis program at Gina’s School of Aesthetics and Electrolysis in 2002. I feel fortunate that Kathryn provided me the opportunity to work at Caress with such a great team of devoted electrologists. It’s a pleasure to work with a Zeiss microscope and the state of the art equipment in a professional yet relaxing ambiance.
I dedicated my aesthetic career to electrolysis because of the remarkable benefits it has compared to other forms of hair removal just can’t match. I am also qualified in the treatment skin anomalies with thermocoagulation, which is a nuisance to many women and men.
As a satisfied electrolysis client myself, I can relate to any concerns that you may have.
The rewards are extraordinary, no more waxing or shaving. Always ready for any occasion; swimming, sun bathing…
I look forward in assisting each client professionally and patiently. I love to stay current with the newest trends and products. I take pride in being precise and knowledgeable in my work. I TRULY BELIEVE that once you start electrolysis, you will never regret your decision.
I look forward to meeting you soon.
Je parle aussi le français!
Au plaisir de faire votre connaissance.
I first met Kathryn in 1985 when I booked a consultation and began electrolysis treatments at her clinic, Kathryn’s Electrolysis located in Ottawa South. During one of my treatments, Kathryn informed me I had qualities that are necessary to be a good electrologist and said I would be able to connect to clients since I have gone through the same embarrassment of unwanted hair along with, the procedure of electrolysis. After I graduated from the Ottawa School of Electrolysis in 1986, I joined Kathryn’s staff of certified electrologists. I furthered my education in 1998 at Laser Medcare where I learned techniques of how to remove facial spider veins and completed a laser hair removal course. In the same year I had the opportunity of opening and operating my own electrolysis business. Then in 2000 I rejoined Kathryn, when she expanded and opened Glow Spa. Kathryn sold the business in 2001, but I remained there as an electrologist until 2010. Once again I rejoined Kathryn after her return to Ottawa and the opening of Caress. Since then, I continued to further my education with Dectro Canada learning thermocoagulation. This gave me the expertise to help clients with skin anomalies, such as skin tags.
I can relate to many clients coming in for the first time questioning whether electrolysis really is permanent. I reassure them that choosing electrolysis is the only method of permanent hair removal. I enjoy the personal interaction with my clients and I love helping them feel more confident and comfortable with their appearance. I also notice an improvement in their overall self esteem. I am a conscientious and friendly person, and have great intuition of clients needs. I am very passionate about electrolysis and feel very fortunate to have found such a satisfying career that I enjoy so much. Client’s needs are my number one priority.
On a personal note, I have a wonderful son, who is my world. I am very proud of how he has overcome the adversities throughout his life. I enjoy gardening in my flower gardens at my home in Greely, as well as traveling and dinners with friends and family.
Joining Kathryn’s team of professional electrologists at Caress Electrolysis has been a great honor. With over 25 years of experience I look forward to treating clients with sincerity and expertise as a certified electrologist.
I took my electrolysis course at Gregory System of Ottawa in 1991. After graduating I continued working at Gregory System for ten years, until I took maternity leave.
After my one year absence I met Kathryn and resumed my career working for her at Glow Spa. I have been working in the field ever since.
I am a gentle, caring person and love helping people to regain their self-confidence. I find electrolysis such a rewarding and satisfying career, that I have been doing it for over two decades.
I am happily married, an active soccer mom with two wonderful boys. I love reading, movies, cooking and baking. I am looking forward to meeting and serving you all at Caress.
I graduated from the Electrology Institute of New England at Tewksbury, Massachusetts in 1999. My training included thermolysis, electrolysis and blend systems of Epilation.
After graduation, I opened my own spa in Damascus, Syria, where I was born and raised. I immigrated to Canada in 2013. Once I became more comfortable with Canadian culture and the English language, I felt I was ready to resume my career as an electrologist. Researching electrolysis clinics in Ottawa I applied to Caress Electrolysis. The equipment at Caress is state of the art and Kathryn gave me the opportunity to familiarize myself with the equipment and the strict sterilization used at Caress before meeting clients. I am very fortunate for the opportunity to join the professional team at Caress.
Electrolysis is the only method of permanent hair removal; far superior to laser hair removal treatments. For this reason, I have dedicated my aesthetic career in the field of electrolysis. I look forward to working with each client during their course of treatment. Once you make the decision to begin electrolysis, I am confident you will be very pleased with the results.
I look forward to serving you in English or Arabic.
I met Kathryn and her team of electrologists several years ago as a client. I have always noted the professional nature of the staff and that they truly care about the service they are providing. Always happy, friendly and welcoming, it was easy for me to make the decision to join the Caress team. I spent six months being mentored by Kathryn and then I attended Dectro International in Montreal where I received my certification and graduated top of my class. I enjoy looking after people and know first-hand the difference that permanent hair removal can have on a person’s life.
On a personal note, I am a proud mother of two beautiful children and am married to my best friend, my high school sweetheart. My family have been my support, strength, and motivation to pursue and achieve my new career.
I am looking forward to providing professional treatments and helping each client achieve their individual goals.
