About Us

Karyn and Rosie run a professional and caring range of services including electrolysis, advanced cosmetic procedures and galvanic skin care treatments in a friendly home environment in Bowlish, a hamlet on the outskirts of Shepton Mallet


About Karyn

Karyn started her career in the film industry in Soho but gave it up after the birth of her first child. In 1988 she began work in a doctor’s surgery, later progressing to working for doctors in the West Middlesex and Charing Cross Hospitals before moving down to Somerset in 2000.

She worked at the Park Medical Practice where she gained her NVQ3 in Health Care and has worked with their nursing team ever since 2003?


About Rosie

Rosie began her career as a commercial photographer but changed direction to work in television, first with the BBC and then Granada Television.

Having studied for a BSc in electronics and computing, she worked with Avon and Somerset Police and South West One IT systems.

She is still the media co-ordinator for the National Trans Police Association


Karyn and Rosie met after being introduced by a mutual friend in 1989 at a Weight Watchers meeting. Both had weight and skin problems and Rosie had issues with unwanted hair, for which she had spent a fortune on unsuccessful IPL (laser) treatments.

Conversations with other people with similar problems revealed that the South West was badly catered for in terms of Electrologists.

Karyn and Rosie decided it was time to fill the gap with a high quality, holistic approach of affordable treatments for distressing problems, and  Somerset Electrolysis was born.

Please be reassured:

unlike other forms of hair removal, electrolysis is the only method which, with regular appointments, will result in permanent hair eradication, for the rest of your life


What They Say

Met Karyn and Rosie for the first time today. A great team, put me at ease immediately with a friendly, professional approach. The electrolysis went well with no adverse reaction and I will certainly be in contact with them again soon.


Such a lovely first appointment with Karyn and Rosie. They made me feel very welcome and comfortable. They are both very knowledgeable about electrolysis and skincare. I had a patch test done which was fine during treatment and afterwards. I look forward to my future treatments.


I have been having electrolysis for years and I couldn’t believe the difference when I went to Somerset Electrolysis, Karyn was really efficient and has virtually cleared my face, Rosie had a go at my thread veins that looked really awful and for the first time in years I go out in public without makeup. Thank you Karyn and Rosie for doing wonders for my self esteem, I can highly recommend you both.   Katie

Scared to deal with the problem?

What really genuine ladies.

I have been wanting to get my embarrassing facial hair dealt with for years but was too scared to go to a salon or anything.

Rosie and Karyn were so welcoming and understanding, I completely felt at ease and like i had finally found a solution to something that effects my life so much.

I know it will take some time to eradicate but it IS POSSIBLE!! I don’t know why I didn’t go earlier! If you are worried about embarrassing hair removal these are your girls to see!!

Very confidential and they have a treatment room in their home so no beauty salons to deal with!!!

Highly recommended 🙂
