    Electrolytic hair removal. D J Mahler passed away in 1934, but the company still exists: http://www.instantron.c…

    I have an battery operated epilator in my “odd electronics” collection; I just can’t imagine someone pushing that long, very thin needle to the hair follicle and keeping it there for a while and then repeating it for every single hair to be removed…

    Anyone else got an Elmer Fudd ear worm going on right now?

    hmmm… given the time this sounds like it might have involved radiation or something; electrolysis takes quite a long time and is not “safe and easy” (mostly the easy part). What do you people think?

    blokeice: You could have just checked the link.

    Excerpt from the linked page: “I have every confidence that electrolysis is the only positive and permanent way to remove unwanted hair forever and that the integrity of the treatment depends entirely upon the skill and expertise of the electrologist.”
