Ms Kathryn Hay
As far back as I remember I have been embarrassed by my excessive body hair. When I reached puberty I was even more self conscience as the hair growth increased on my face and my body. I tried many types of temporary methods to no satisfaction.
One day I met an electrologist, and after discussing electrolysis with her I decided to give electrolysis a try. I quickly realized that it was the only solution for me. Not only did I rid myself of unwanted hair, but I soon realized an increase in my self confidence as the treatments progressed. It was an easy decision to continue with electrolysis, and have one area of my body cleared after another. I was so pleased by the results that I now look forward to the opportunity of helping others with similar concerns.
I graduated from The Kree Institute of Electrolysis in New York City in 1976. When returning to Ottawa I was employed as an electrologist for a short time, but couldn’t continue to work under the poor conditions and antiquated equipment I was expected to work with.
I decided to open my own electrolysis clinic where I had the liberty to operate in a professional manner, and offering state of the art technology. I opened Kathryn’s Electrolysis Ltd. and over several years expanded to the largest electrolysis studio in Ottawa. In 2001
I sold Kathryn’s and moved to Kingston, ON where I established Caress Electrolysis. When
I returned to my hometown of Ottawa in 2006, I settled in Barrhaven and reopened Caress.
I am pleased to say that only a couple of years later, Caress is the leading electrolysis clinic in Ottawa.
I continually update my education to stay fresh and current with new technology. Caress
is one of the few clinics in Ottawa that offers the use of Zeiss microscopes to increase
the precision of our insertions, providing more gentle treatments and faster results. In 1988
I began offering facial spider vein treatments to my services after I attended instruction in procedures to treat dilated blood vessels. I graduated as a laser technician from LCI and continued my laser training at Laser Medcare. Although I worked for a few years part time
as a laser technician as well as continuing to operate my electrolysis business, I no longer provide laser hair removal services through Caress given the superior results of electrolysis.
I now focus all my energies on electrolysis, which is still the only permanent method of hair removal.
I am so delighted to have found such a rewarding career; one in which I am so passionate. Everyday I look forward to assisting others restore their beauty and helping to increase their self-confidence. I welcome the opportunity to do the same for you!
