Very Happy

I am so glad I found Joyce! She explains everything and is very passionate about what she does. She is very careful with my skin, I usually run errands after my appointments and don't feel i have to hide my face. We are making great progress and I am starting to worry about other things more important than unsightly hair. Plenty of parking and office is super clean. Sometimes ill listen to audio books or music, depends on my mood. It almosts feels like a day at the spa. I feel very fortunate to have found Joyce!




I only have good things to say about electrolysis and Joyce Maxwell. Electrolysis is the only method of hair removal that the FDA allows to advertise as "Permanent Hair Removal", and for good reason. I came to Joyce after trying several sessions of very expensive laser hair removal which also promises permanent hair removal results. Be very careful about laser, I spent thousands of dollars for marginal results and in some places hair grew in thicker and also experienced skin discoloration.

Joyce Maxwell provided me with competitive pricing in a clean and comfortable and professional office environment. All probes are disposed after each use. I used to have to shave everyday and could probably shave twice a day because of my "5 o'clock shadow". Now I can now go to work without shaving my face for 1 - 2 days. I am very impressed with both the technology and Joyce's compassionate and professional demeanor.



I tried everything..

Before using electrolysis, I was bleaching and using depilatory creams. I have fair skin and very dark hair, and the follicles would be visible while still under the skin. Tweezing made things worse. Most of the hairs on my chin and neck were as coarse as the hairs on my legs. So I tried lasers--I was basically paying for the aesthetician to tweeze me after the "laser" treatment. Finally, I started electrolysis. It took me a while to discover the blend technique, and once I did, I needed treatments less frequently. I went from every week, to every two, then every month. That was the type of current that worked for me. Ninety percent of the original problem is gone, and the hairs that remain are mostly new ones that have yet to be treated, but these are usually fine. I simply trim them until my next treatment. They need one or two treatments and they never come back. Now I focus my treatment time on areas that never bothered me that much, like the fine hairs on my upper lip. Before electrolysis, my hair problem literally defined how I felt about my appearance. Now, I forget I ever had a hair problem. I know whatever technique I use, it will never be a one time "cure" because these hairs are driven my hormones, which my body is constantly producing, and new hairs pop up even though I am in my thirties. But having electrolysis is a life-saver. I know the hairs will never win!

You will not be disappointed!

Joyce is great! She really knows her stuff and cares about each of her clients. You can tell she has a real passion for removing hairs and it shows in her work. I first went to Joyce after having a terrible reaction to electrolysis I had done by someone else. Before I even came in she spent over 45 minutes on the phone with me educating me on the electrolysis process and giving me suggestions to help the irritation and scabbing (which helped tremendously). I was terrified of trying electrolysis again. But after speaking with Joyce on the phone she made me feel completely comfortable and confident to try it again. After I had my first treatment with Joyce I had little to no reaction at all. She is a miracle worker. Joyce does her due diligence up front to find the best treatment for your skin type. She wants to give you the best possible results. If you are considering electrolysis I highly recommend Joyce. She is extremely knowledgeable and has been doing this for over 7 years. Call her today and find out for your self. You will not be disappointed. "



Absolute is the Best

I have been a client of Joyce Maxwell for over 5 years. I am a professional speaker. I lecture to the executives of Fortune 500 companies and the Federal Government. I must present a well dressed and groomed image. I was having a problem that many men in their fifties and sixties have. I had excessive hair growth on and in my ears. I tried all the conventional means such as shaving (I needed it daily) and rotary devices. They did not do the job. It was distracting and annoying




I recommend Absolute Permanent Hair Removal Electrolysis & Skincare without reservation. I had heavy facial hair worsened by years of plucking, with the attendant ingrown hairs. Joyce Maxwell took the extra time to find just the right combination to remove the hairs without irritation or scarring. It has been a couple of years without any regrowth of the problem hair. Not only is Joyce knowledgeable and professional, she will also make sure you are comfortable and relaxed, whether that means listening to music, talking, or just being quiet.



Goodbye, Daily Tweezing!

Until I tried electrolysis, I was tweezing chin hairs daily. I had already had laser treatment, with disappointing results for a high price. But after less than a year of electrolysis, I only have to deal with the occasional stray hair. With a difference! I highly recommend both electrolysis and Joyce Maxwell, the electrologist at Absolute Permanent Hair Removal Electrolysis. She is extremely skilled, professional, and personable.
