Kelderhouse has seen the worst and the best electrolysis can offer. After the skin-burning incident she sought a different practitioner.

“She got hysterical and shrieked and said, whatever had been done to my face had scarred, and she wouldn’t even touch me,” Kelderhouse said.

Looking back she realizes what a gamble it was.

“I was getting services, not knowing about the equipment, the people that were using the equipment, the credibility or validity of the equipment or the service,” Kelderhouse said.

For years I have been telling people that one should check out everyone in their area before deciding to whom they will entrust their body. Even those who come to me first, I advise that they should check out some of the other people in town. If they don’t, they can never know what the difference between treatment they get from me, and what is available elsewhere.

The bottom line is, if you don’t get a referral from someone who is done, happy, and you like what you see as their results, you need to shop around. You will find that that the most expensive person in town is not always the best, and the least expensive person in town is not always the worst. It has been my experience that the best practitioners are usually between the middle and upper quartile on price.
