Looking for an Electrologist? Here's why the CPE credential is important part of your search.

Choosing a CPE means you're choosing a dedicated professional in the hair removal field

Choosing a Certified Professional Electrologist (CPE) for your hair removal needs can provide you with assurance and peace of mind, as this credential signifies that the electrologist has passed the national CPE examination, and is committed to maintaining their credential through on-going continuing education.

In many states, electrologists are not licensed or regulated, which means that each state may have its own requirements for electrologists. To ensure that you are receiving the best possible care, it is crucial to inquire about the electrologist's license or certification, and to review it on display in their office or on their wall. In states that require licensing, the CPE exam goes above and beyond, measuring the electrologist's knowledge against a national standard of excellence.

The CPE credential proves that an electrologist is dedicated to their profession, and has a commitment to continuing education, exemplifying the highest degree of professionalism. In fact, CPEs must complete 75 hours of continuing educational units (CEUs) in a five-year period to maintain their certification.

To ensure that they are up-to-date with the latest developments in the field, CPEs participate in continuing education courses and in-person seminars offered by the American Electrology Association and its affiliates. This education covers a variety of topics such as sterilization and sanitation techniques, skin and hair updates, and more, which can further enhance the quality of care they provide to their clients.

It All Starts With A Consultation

When considering electrolysis hair removal providers, it is important to start with a consultation. A consultation will provide an opportunity to ask questions, learn about the treatment process, understand the length and frequency of treatments, and have a clear expectation of what to expect during and after the treatments.

Choosing a CPE-certified electrologist can provide you with confidence in knowing that you are receiving high-quality care from a dedicated and knowledgeable professional who is committed to providing the best possible service. So, when looking for an electrologist, be sure to ask if they are a Certified Professional Electrologist (CPE).
