Houston >International Beauty Ctr
This is the first place where I ever visited for electrolysis and I am happy to say that I didn't need to look anymore.
I didn't know if electrolysis was the best option that I wanted to go for, so i scheduled to meet with Cristina, and she gave me 1 hour for free, also tried electrolysis on me for 10 minutes so I could see if it was painful.
Cristina is a professional woman, who is extremely good at what she does. She is also very authentic, and is not in the profession to simply make money. From her work ethic and the dedication it is evident that she does this to genuinely help people and make them feel better. She drives a great deal of satisfaction by seeing great results in her clients.
I have only been visiting her for 3 months and am happy to say that I have made A LOT of progress.
In short, if you are thinking about getting electrolysis, give her a call.
You won't find ANYONE better!. I could write pages and pages on how much I adore Cristina. She is not only extremely professional and totally competent and efficient in her work, she is also a warm, friendly person who puts you totally at ease when you are in for treatment. I also spent almost 2 years in treatment with another electrolycist seeing results painfully slowly. When I say painfully I mean painfully! My previous treatment was like medieval torture compared to what I am experiencing with Cristina. I was in so much pain in my previous treatments that I set my time limit at 30 minutes - that was my threshold for pain with my former technician. Thirty minute treatments get you nowhere fast, especially if you have a large area you want treated. I could handle hours with Cris. I get so comfortable with her that I have been close to falling asleep several times. I am sorry that I don't know exactly the type of machine my former electrolycist used, but I know the machine makes a huge difference now (as well as the skill level and personality of your technician). Cris uses the Apilus Platinum. It is fabulous! I know some people may hear her prices and think they are a bit high (about $85 per hour, $55 per half hour, $40 per 15 min). THEY ARE NOT. I am happy to pay a little more for the utter comfort of these treatments, but also Cris has around 20 years of practice and expertise under her belt. She is so fast, precise, efficient and effective in her treatments that I actually think her prices are extremely reasonable. I have seen results so much quicker since I have started treatment with her. My appointments always fly by. She has a wonderful bedside manner and makes you feel completely at ease and un-self-conscious about your treatment. She works in Houston a few days a week and Austin for a few days a week. If she moves before I have managed to become hairless everywhere that I want to be - I will follow her wherever she goes. Luckily for me now, she is right down the street. I live in the Village and her office is on Kirby just off 59 (very near Little Pappasito's on Richmond). Cristina also does a great job at scheduling her clients. As one of her other clients mentioned, I have also rarely waited more than even five minutes to get in for my appointments. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. If you are currently having treatment elsewhere and are experiencing any pain you need to schedule a treatment with this woman to believe it doesn't have to hurt! If you are looking to try it out for the first time, look no further - you have found the best.
You've got blonde hair? You need to go be treated here.
Cristina is the best electrologist you’ll ever meet. She is always very concerned about making sure you’re comfortable. Cristina’s love for her job and each of her clients’ well-being, makes her a unique electrologist because she is not only empathetic and kind, but she is talented and incredibly well educated. Cristina attends workshops and trainings regularly to make sure she’s always up-to-date on the latest technologies. She is also an educator and conference presenter.
I wouldn’t trust my face with anyone other than Cristina. I have very hard hair to treat. It’s blond and fine, the type a lot of other electrologists wouldn’t even treat. I also have very sensitive skin, so she has to be very precise and accurate with every hair she removes. I am so grateful I have found someone as talented and gifted as Cristina, she is the type of professional you can only hope to meet!
Best Electrolysis in Houston !!!. I have been taking electrolysis treatments from another practitioner for over 10 years with no end in sight. It was a fluke that landed me with an appointment with Christina. In less than a year I have finished all of the areas that I had already started and have moved on to the rest of my body. The machine that Christina uses is so painless that I don´t have to use a topical solution. Christina´s professional behavior is one of the other outstanding points of seeing her. I have rarely had to wait more than 5 minutes with Christina compared to the hours that the other practitioner would keep me waiting. The only down side that I have to seeing Christina is that I´ve so enjoyed spending the time getting to know her friendly self that I will miss her when I am done with my treatments.
Editorial Review. Don't suffer the effects of laser hair removal and patchy re-growth. This Houston hair removal clinic guarantees truly permanent hair removal.
AMAZING!!!. I suffer from something called Polycystic Ovary Syndrome or known mostly as PCOS. I was diagnosed when I was in the 7th grade, right after I started my menstrual cycle. For the people who don?t know what this is, I will tell you just one of my symptoms.....HAIR GROWTH!! I had very, very bad hair growth on my face, I pretty much had a beard. I tried lasers(it got worse), I tried waxing but it didn?t work and I broke out in an allergic reaction, so I resorted to shaving everyday. I hated it and it was irritating to me and my skin. I went to International Beauty Center this summer in Houston while I was staying back home in Galveston. I was sooooooooo happy with my treatments and was religious about going to them. I could tell a BIG difference quickly. Cristina was nice, professional, and always ready for my when I got there, even though I was usually there early. Her machine is a great about limiting pain and she always ask if you are ok. She makes time for me, she'll come in early if I can not do anything but an early morning appointment. When I came back to Austin for school I kept seeing her at this Austin location and I'm still so happy with it. I never have to worry about having hair growth and people seeing it. My self confidence has jumped dramatically and I feel better about going out and being in the eyes of the public. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get rid of some hair, no matter how much hair it is.
