Bare Beauté

For years, I battled with unwanted facial hair. I became a chronic plucker! I tried every temporary method such as tweezing, waxing, and shaving. My hair would always return thicker and coarse especially on my chin and neck. Several months ago, I decided to do further research on permanent hair removal. I discovered electrolysis which is 100% FDA approved permanent hair removal. My first treatment was July 12, 2021, and I’ve been amazed ever since. The sense of relief I felt during my treatment is what landed me here today. My mission is to help everyone I can feel confident and comfortable in the skin we’re in.

I have had two electrolysis appointments so far, so cannot attest to the effects lasting YET, but Chantelle is professional and kind. Her energy is great! Her office is clean and she is hygienic in her practices. I felt comfortable right away. She has services to offer other than just electrolysis. Go check out her website!!

For YEARS, I've been so self conscious and frustrated with the dark coarse hair on my chin. I've tried laser hair removal many times and nothing worked. I am beyond happy that I found Chantell and electrolysis. She knows what she's doing, can empathize with your unwanted hair frustrations, and is a lot of fun to talk to. It's a permanent solution I didn't even know existed and I'm so happy to soon be able to not have to worry about shaving my chin in the morning. 🙌

Laser Hair Removal FAQ

Who Is It For?


Men face many unwanted hair issues, too. Some common areas for men are: back hair, ear hair, unwanted unibrow, underarms, arms and legs, and hands.


Teens with unwanted hair can have a negative body image and thus effecting their self-esteem. For teenage girls and boys with unwanted hair, there is a permanent solution for hair removal that is safe and convenient.

Coarse Hair

Coarse, curly or wavy hair can become stuck underneath the skin. Attempting to manage these problems by temporary methods such as waxing, shaving, or tweezing can just make them worse.

Dark Skin

Electrolysis works on all skin colors and skin types. Unlike alternatives such as laser hair removal, electrolysis is safe and effective for all skin tones and hair types because it treats hair at its source, deep within the hair follicle.


Hormonal changes and conditions account for many problems with unwanted hair. Many causes such as: puberty, menopause, pregnancy, increased stress and even some medications can cause unwanted hair growth.

Radio Frequency (RF) Skin Tightening

Radio Frequency (RF) Skin Tightening is an effective treatment for addressing skin laxity on the face and body and is commonly used for non-surgical face lifts such as under eye bags and neck tightening. During an RF Skin Tightening treatment the temperature in the sub dermal layers of the skin increases, causing shortening (tightening) of the collagen fibres and stimulating new collagen development.

Getting a tattoo can be exciting. It’s one major way can express ourselves, or commemorate certain stages of our lives. But as you grow and change as a person, you might not see that tattoo you got 10 or 20 years ago as exciting anymore. It might even be emotionally painful to look at it. That’s when the tattoo removal process can become a real savior
