The Best

by Happy19

"Going to Bette Pritchett has been the best thing that has ever happen to me. I have seen my hair problem begin to go away and I'm very excited for the change. She takes time to explain the procedure, making you for comfortable in her hands. What sold me on Bette was her knowledge and the fact that she gives a free consultation to prospective clients. At that time you will be able to get some hairs removed giving you a physical prospective on the procedure. I have fallen in love with ELECTROLYSIS!!"
