Hair on ones body is normal. However, as a woman, hair on my abdomen (stomach) was not normal nor wanted. For years I tried everything known to get ride of the hair. I've shaved, waxed, tweezed, and complete 9 treatments of professional laser hair removal. Nothing worked and only served to cause skin irritation and or scaring on my darker skin (African American background). After being unsuccessful with laser hair removal, I again started researching permanent hair removal treatments and discovered the facts related to electrolysis. After conducting a google search of an electrolysis within my radius, I came upon Elite Electrolysis and decided to make an appointment for a consolation. During the consultation I met with Marina who was curtious and explained the process as well as demonstrated a brief session. She explained that the process would take time and commitment but would lead to results. Honestly, I was skeptical due to my history of unseen permanent results. After thinking it over, I made my initial appointment with Marina at her West Orange location and never looked back. After clearing my abdomen area in the first 3-one hour sessions, I began to notice a difference, the hair actually took a longer time to grow back. After about 5 sessions, we moved from weekly to bi-weekly. After about 10 treatments the hair was disappearing and I needed an appointment only once a month. I am now on my 15th treatment and can honestly say, I am no longer embarrassed to show my stomach. My appointments are now once a month or as needed and usually last under 20mins, seeing that there are just a few stray hairs. This has been the only method that has worked for me and has been truly permanent. After initially questioning the process during consultation, I am not a believer and am greatful to Marina for her professionalism and expertise! -
This is a painful subject, getting stuck with a needle...and My Skin Care and Electrolysis does a painless job of it. Great professional service, skill and results. I highly recommend them!

Love Valentina! Love this place! Always clean and helpful!!!!!! Valentina has helped me and made me feel super comfortable about my treatments :) :) :)
For those doubting that electrolysis works, well, let me tell you, it does. I've been going for about a year now and the hair I wanted gone is much thinner, finer and some doesn't even grow back. The word the ladies do at EE is wonderful. My first visit included a free consolation of how the treatments would feel and it wasn't too terrible. You know what they say, beauty is painful. The lady who takes care of me is talkative, polite, and very good at what she does. We have conversations while she does the treatments, so the staff if incredibly personable and knows what they're doing. They have flexible schedules, too. If anyone needs any hair removal, I highly recommend Elite Electrolysis. The embarrassing hair that grew as a result of my hormones is going away and I feel more confident in myself because it's gone.

Excellent customer service! Excellent results and excellent staff! I've been struggling for years to remove unwanted hair. After years of bleaching and many different painful laser hair removal treatments, I finally found this office for electrolysis. Everything is clean and done so well. I truly enjoy my time as I'm getting treatment done.

After trying every form of hair removal, it's clear electrolysis is the ONLY method that is permanent! The team at Elite Electrolysis was not only friendly but super informative! Marina and her team are the only people to trust with your skincare needs. After only a few sessions, my unwanted hair is all gone. Stop wasting time plucking, waxing, etc. Electrolysis is the only way to go.
The place changed a name and now is called MY skin care. The same excellent service and staff. Now that I do not have an unwanted hair I still go to them for my skin care needs and eyelash extensions.

I got my first session at Elite Electrolysis in Fair Lawn and I must say I was nervous about the pain. I've been dealing with unwanted hairs for a few years and as a women very embarrassed of it. I was not in pain I had a comfortable experience and can't wait for my next appointment . I'll make sure I write another review if it works keeping my fingers crossed sincerely S.

After so many years of no results and hairs coming back, I finally found
the right place.
Oksana thank you very much for all
I'm not really good at writing reviews and seldom read them. But just want
to say that if you do not know much about electrolysis and have questions just
ask for the free consultation.
Marina has helped me see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have been
to an electrolysis before her and that electrologist would continue to tell me
that I was almost done and that was never the case. Finally, after 3 years of
empty promises, I decided to find someone else. I was doubtful when I first
talked to Marina because of my prior experience, but she proved me wrong. After
a couple of treatments, I saw a major difference on all the parts that were
worked on and now I am done. Thank you Marina for making a difference.
If you’re shopping around for an Electrologist or trying to
decide between Laser “reduction” and Electrolysis hair REMOVAL….please look no
further. I came across Marina a little over 1 year ago, and believe me when I
say, you will be hard pressed to find a more honest, competent, professional,
and friendly Electrologist. I do my research when I choose a professional’s help
in any aspect of my life, and after your initial consultation with Marina , you
too will be convinced. Her expertise and extensive knowledge of hair growth is
truly “elite”, and her welcoming persona makes you feel very comfortable, with
such a highly sensitive issue such as hair removal. (Even your most embarrassing
areas can be treated with Electrolysis…don’t be afraid to ask Marina ) I was
waxing my face about 2 times a week and constantly plucking in between waxes. I
finally decided to invest in Electrolysis, after years of embarrassing facial
and body hair. I haven’t touched tweezers or wax since I started coming to her,
and I can honestly say that it is THE best money I have ever spent in my life.
She is worth every penny! Marina , please feel free to have any potential
clients contact me for a referral, I would be happy to speak with them.
I am so glad I followed up on a personal referral given to me. After endlessly surfing thru all hair removal forums, I was still not sure if electrolysis was for me.
Thank you very much for patiently
answering all my questions and most of all for helping me to overcome my hair
Marina, you have amazing hands ! After just 7
treatments, you achieved better results
then my previous electrologist in
At 28 years old I would have never guessed that I would have been depressed about hair on my face. Marina you have worked a miracle for my self confidence. I used to hide my face in the light, avoid close conversation and squirm when someone ventured to touch my face. Marina you have kept every promise made to me about my potential progress from day one and the results are incredible. Thank you so much for always being so accomodating, welcoming, informative, warm and productive. I could never thank you enough for assisting me in being able to stand in the sunlight again without fear of hair on my face being noticed.
You have changed my life!
Results are amazing !!
Marina, I am so happy I came to your office.
I would be happy to recommend you to anybody.
Thank you so much,
Marina, Having received successful treatment from you on numerous
body locations, I highly recommend your service to any prospective client. Feel
free to contact me if someone is interested in a testimonial. You changed my
life! Thank you, Elisa
