Electrologists perform services for consumers through the permanent removal of hair from the body. Electrolysis involves the application of an electrical current through a needle to the hair follicle.

The Board of Registration of Electrologists protects the public through regulation of the practice in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in accordance with the statutes and Board regulations and code of conduct.

The Board issues licenses to practice as qualified electrologists and qualified instructors when applicants meet the Board's education and experience requirements and pass a Board administered examination. The Board also licenses schools of electrology after inspection and approval.
