Electrolysis & Skin Care Clinic

According to Irina Stukalov, of Brookline’s Electrolysis & Skin Care Clinic, there’s only one way to vanquish unwanted hair once and for all: Electrocute the little buggers, one by one. While this isn’t the cheapest, fastest, or most painless option, it’s the real deal, especially when the follicular executioner has 20-plus years of experience. Stukalov knows how to reap the most devastating damage, distracting clients with tales of Soviet-era Russia as she shocks those whiskers into oblivion.
