Hello, my name is Chandra van der Most, owner and operator of Lotus Electrolysis Center, LLC located in North Seattle, WA. I have a passion for helping people look and feel their best by permanently removing hair using electrolysis.
After I personally received laser treatment, which is permanent ‘hair reduction’, I followed up with electrolysis, which is permanent ‘hair removal’. Hair reduction means that not all of the treated hairs will be permanently eliminated. Permanent hair removal means that the hairs have been entirely eliminated permanently.
I saw positive results using electrolysis and decided that I wanted to start a new career removing hair. I attended esthetician school in Seattle while learning in depth about skin, its diseases, and how to keep it clean and healthy.
I learned how to wax and found it messy to apply, expensive, and it removes the top layer of skin making the body susceptible to infection. Waxing hormonally driven areas such as the upper lip, chin, breast, and abdomen can cause courser hair and more hair regrowth.
After researching different methods of hair removal I decided to pursue a career in electrolysis. I graduated from a 450 hour course from River Rock Electrology Institute in Eau Claire, Wisconsin in 2007. I studied the theory online and completed the practical portion onsite.
I continued advanced training in Seattle while being mentored by an excellent local electrologist on Saturdays for a year. Shortly thereafter I became board certified after passing a rigorous national exam and earning my certified professional electrologist credential.
I attend required continuing education courses yearly, in which I find it interesting to stay abreast of new knowledge and to meet other electrologists. I belong to the Washington State Electrology Association and the American Electrology Association.
I have served as an officer on the Washington State Electrology Association board as secretary for two years. I have created and maintain a clean, safe, comfortable, and quiet treatment room with a spa like setting for my clients and am located conveniently in the Wallingford neighborhood in Seattle. I strive to offer services that are thorough, efficient and reasonably priced.
