Who Launches the Profession of Electrology?

Author  John Fantz, CPE and former state examiner in the field of Electrology states several historical Electrology facts in his book The Fantz Guide to Electrology-“History of Methods and Technique.” For starters, did you know that the historical electrical current of the profession of Electrology is direct current (DC)? Fantz notes that in 1875, Charles E. Michel, MD, of St. Louis, was the first to use DC to permanently eliminate hair. Using a single needle, his procedure removed eyelashes that grew down into the eyes of his patients. Michael Bono explains in his book, Real World Electrology: The Blend Method, that Dr. Michel is credited with launching the profession of Electrology which is, consequently, named for the “electrolysis reaction” of direct current.
