Judy Morgan – CA Licensed Electrologist - Electrolysis is the process of permanently removing unwanted hair. In this process, a metal filament called a probe, that is as thin as a hair, is slid into each unwanted hair follicle. This is done with the utmost care so the probe does not puncture the skin. Upon insertion, a very low electric current is delivered to the follicle through the probe, which causes localized damage to the cell that produces the hair. Most patrons feel only a slight tingling sensation. Electrolysis has the best results in terms of longevity and is the only method of permanent hair removal recognized by the FDA. Judy is new to the area and although she works from Amber's Beauty, she is independent. Judy can be reached at 949-230-1717 or visit at
