Cristina Navarrete, BBA, CPE, AANT

Ms. Navarrete is the owner of IBC and its principal electrologist. Her extensive experience as both a practicing electrologist and a trainer, as well as her personal commitment to her craft, make Ms. Navarrete one of the leading practitioners in the country. When the manufacturer of the cutting edge Apilus Platinum epilator was seeking to improve on an early prototype of the machine Ms. Navarrete was requested to put it to the test. Many of the settings in the final product sold today resulted from Ms. Navarrete’s findings and recommendations.

In addition to her expertise and qualifications, Ms. Navarrete is deeply empathetic with her patients. Since birth, she suffered from hirsutism: excessive hair growth due to increased levels of androgens. Beginning at age 19 she endured 2 years of daily electrolysis treatments, back when the epilators were not as efficient and mild as today’s models. Because of this experience, Ms. Navarrete knows firsthand what it’s like to have a lot of unwanted hair, and the time and financial commitment that is demanded from the electrolysis patient.
