Welcome to the Texas Association of Hair Removal Specialists (TAHRS) Web Site.
We have created this website for the purpose of educating the public about permanent hair removal through electrolysis and laser and to keep our membership informed of our activities. We hope that you will find the site user-friendly and informative.
The TAHRS was formed in 1970 for the purpose of promoting education and information among all practicing electrologists and laser professionals. It has evolved into a very professional organization where its members enjoy a yearly convention with renowned speakers from the fields of electrolysis, laser, medicine, and business. We require our members to abide by our safety and sterilization standards and encourage them to obtain national certification, participate in our Continuing Education programs and to share their experience with other members.
As we are quickly approaching the summer I want to tell you that this year, 2013, we are not having our convention in the summer.
Since our Association’s goal is education, the Board is already working on finding themes and speakers to talk about Electrolysis and Laser Hair Removal for next year.
If you have a particular theme you would like to learn about, please call me or any of the Board members with your suggestion. We welcome all the input we can get!
Thank you for visiting our website and we hope you‘ve been able to find the information you were looking for.
Hope this year has been good so far and we wish you a great rest-of-the-year.
Pat Bielecki, President
If you are seeking hair removal services:
We encourage you to locate one of our members (see Membership Information section) to ensure that you are receiving the most qualified electrologist/laser professional in your area. Our members sign a pledge to uphold our organization standards (see Membership Standards section) so that you may be comfortable with standardized safety and sterilization practices. We have incorporated a brief explanation of what electrolysis and is and how it works to permanently remove unwanted superfluous hair as well as laser and how it works to permanently reduce unwanted superfluous hair (FAQs). When you visit one of our member electrologists/laser professional she or he will take a medical history and explain the various options open to you, the possible causes or the hair growth, the approximate time involved to obtain permanency and the cost involved. Most electrologists/laser professionals offer consultations at no cost. You will have an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have regarding pre-treatment and post-treatment care, sterilization methods used, training and credentials. You should feel comfortable and confident that your chosen electrologist/laser professional is very well qualified and dedicated to helping you obtain permanent hair removal in the safest and most efficient manner.
