Caress Electrolysis: Silky Smooth Skin is just a Caress Away

Kathryn, the owner of Caress, along with other professionals from Caress

Some people have skin and hair issues that impact their self-esteem. Kathryn, owner of Caress Electrolysis was one of those people, but she decided early in life to do something about it.

“After trying a variety of temporary methods of hair removal I decided to give electrolysis a try. Overjoyed with the results of electrolysis, I not only got rid of my unwanted hair permanently, I also gained more confidence. I was so delighted by the results that I decided to pursue a career in electrolysis.”

“I started working at an established salon but soon decided to open my own clinic where I had the liberty to operate in a more professional manner and purchased state of the art technology.”

“Clients often inform me how pleased they are with the results and only wished they had started treatments sooner.  Don’t make the same mistake, start now.”

We at Caress can permanently remove unwanted hair on any area of your body regardless of the colour of your skin or hair. Electrolysis is the ONLY method of permanent hair removal.

Why throw away your money on waxing and depilatories only to have the hair regrow? Electrolysis is a lifetime investment.

Caress Electrolysis - young woman doing yogaMost of the staff at Caress Electrolysis, has been successfully performing electrolysis in the Ottawa area for over 30 years. The team of professional certified Electrologists are constantly exploring breakthroughs in permanent hair removal to ensure the best results.  Caress offers the highest standard of sterilization and is one of the few clinics in Ottawa that employs Zeiss microscopes to increase the precision of insertions, providing more gentle treatments with a faster conclusion.

Caress Electrolysis offers a FREE consultation. An Electrologist will explain the procedure, answer any of your questions and provide you with a sample treatment. As an informed consumer you will have all the information you need to decide whether to proceed with treatments.

Testimonial by Christopher

The environment at Caress is spotless and inviting. The equipment used is state of the art and clearly a lot of care has been put into making the experience relaxing. The staff is friendly and professional.

Being a man I was unsure of how awkward I would feel walking into an electrolysis clinic but as it turns out I had nothing to worry about. On my first visit, Kathryn gave me a detailed explanation of what’s involved and how it works. She offered to treat a small area so I could experience what the discomfort level would be. I found it very acceptable but more importantly found her discretion and nonjudgmental manner to be a real stress reliever. I can’t imagine how the

experience could be any more relaxing and professional. Her years of experience inspire confidence that you’re in good hands. I look forward to my appointments and the great conversations we always have. If I had found Caress, and Kathryn in particular, I would have been a customer many years sooner and would recommend Caress to anyone without hesitation.


Caress Electrolysis is conveniently opened weekdays 9:00 to 8:00 and Saturdays 9:00 to 4:00.

Please visit for more information or call 613 825 2299. Caress Electrolysis is located at 35 Larkin Dr., off Greenbank Rd.  EP
