About Bridget Giles, LE, CPE, Licensed Medical Aesthetician
I am a wife and mother of two beautiful boys. I have a passion for life and the desire to help others has inspired me to graduate with a degree in business from Champlain College, as well as from the highly regarded Electrology Institute of New England. I am adjucated in skin care and make-up and am a licensed esthetician and certified eyelash extensionist. I am also certified in microdermabrasion and certified in sugaring which is a popular form of waxing that very few individuals in Vermont are certified to perform. Since 2006, I have been an Independent Beauty Consultant for Mary Kay Cosmetics, providing facials, classes, make-up and skin care products to my clients.
I am a Breast Cancer survivor who sought Electrology treatment for ingrown cystic follicles. My treatment was such a success that I decided to become an electrologist myself to help make a difference in the lives of others. I am excited to be providing Electrology services and look forward to making a difference in the lives of others, the same way it made a difference in mine.
I am currently using the Apilus 27 MHz Platinum Pure Epilator. It is one of the most comfortable electrolysis machines on the market today. It utilizes the latest technology creating increased comfort for the client, as well as a reduction in post treatment redness.
As well as being licensed, I am also a Certified Professional Electrologist (CPE), which is a credential for the highest level of education possible in my field. I am a member of the American Electrology Association (AEA), which is our national organization and the Association of Vermont Electrologists (AVE), which is our state affiliate of the AEA. I have also recently been asked to become a member of the National Association of Professional Women (NAPW). The NAPW highlights and profiles the country’s most accomplished professional women in more than 200 industries and professions, and it is an honor to have been recognized and asked to join such an association.
Bridget was awarded a NAPW Women of the Year for 2014.
Galvanic: The original electrolysis modality is applied via direct current, resulting in a chemical change of salt and water to lye surrounding the hair follicle.
Thermolysis: Also known as radio or high frequency, uses alternating current to provide heat in
Blend: A combination of the direct and alternating current, so that a chemical and heating action occur together or sequentially in the follicle. Since the advent of computerized epilators, there are many nuances to these current applications.
