I’ve been zapping hairs since 1986 and I began working with the gender community in 1990. Electrolysis by Kelly Inc began when I started working out of my house. At the time almost all of my clients were transgender. However, when I moved my business to the Oak Park Mall slowly I got more clients, both transgender and the general public. www.IZapEm.com

Over the last 27 years I learned a lot. From other electrologists, experience, attending seminars and doing continuing education. And a lot from just listening to my clients. No two clients are the same, and to treat everyone in the same way doesn't produce the best possible results. I strive to help each client the best way they need.

There hasn't been new research for probes for electrolysis since 1970. I though that a small change to exposed tip length would make a big difference to comfort when removing shallow hairs.

It sounded good to the people at Laurier Instruments who make hand make these probes, so they made up a batch of probes that incorporated my ideas and gave them to the electrologist community to try out. The feedback was overwhelmingly, wildly positive and the "Kelly" Tip entered production in 2013.
