Hello and welcome to the Association of Vermont Electrologists (AVE). AVE was founded in 1990 by leaders in the permanent hair removal industry whose dedication to the profession led them to create a membership association that provides high level education to its members across the state.
Electrolysis is a licensed profession in the state of Vermont and is regulated by the Secretary of State's Office of Professional Regulation.
Today, the AVE is more dedicated and committed than ever in providing the public with highly skilled and trained professional electrologists. The AVE offers members regular seminars and meetings where electrologists can earn Continuing Education Units (CEU's) each year. These seminars offer an opportunity for members to discuss and share relevant issues as it pertains to the hair removal industry. In addition, the AVE continually strives to protect the health and safety of the public as well as the electrologists by providing its members with advanced training in the field sterilization and universal precautions.
AVE is affiliated with the American Electrology Association (AEA). The AEA is the largest international electrology membership organization world wide. The AEA and its affiliate states, such as the AVE, provides many programs that benefit the electrologist, the profession and the public. Many of our members have earned the additional credential of CPE (Certified Professional Electrologist) by passing a voluntary certification examination offered by the International Board Certification Committee. CPE's are challenged to improving their knowledge and practice through the AEA's Continuing Education and Recertification programs, which require 75 hours of approved continuing education every five years to recertify.

Did you Know?
Electrology is the only hair removal method recognized as permanent by the FDA.
It's okay to shave between treatments, but never, ever tweeze!
For a more comfortable treatment, avoid caffeine for a few hours before your appointment.
Talk to your electrologist about any questions or concerns. We want your experience to be as comfortable and effective as possible.
Ask your electrologist for aftercare advice. We can recommend the product that is right for your skin and treatment program.
Did you know?
Gently exfoliating your skin before your treatment opens up the follicles and lets the unwanted hair slide out more easily.
Did you know?
The hair you see is not all the hair you have. Hair grows in cycles. That's why it takes more than one appointment to permanently clear an area.
Did you know?
If your electrologist can't see the hairs, they can't zap the hairs. Plucking, waxing, threading, or tweezing before your hair removal appointment reduces the number of hairs your electrologist can remove.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
Drinking plenty of water helps unwanted hair slide right out.
Clean skin releases unwanted hair more easily. Remove your makeup before your appointment, so the hair follicles are clean and accessible.
Association of Vermont Electrologists presents meaningful seminars and programs covering a variety of topics.
