We had the good fortune of connecting with Hailey Reville and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Hailey, do you disagree with some advice that is more or less universally accepted?
Everyone usually says “choose something with job security”. While it is generally more secure it doesn’t always ensure happiness, great pay, or even actual security. I used to be in the world of medicine and radiology before I began my aesthetic adventure. I did enjoy aspects of the medical environment but it wasn’t where I found my true passion or even what I’m best at. Working through my aesthetic career I found aesthetic information came much more naturally and I could easily retain information related to skin versus medical. I feel happier, more capable, and “secure” in my current role than in medical. As we can see in recent events that have unfolded even secure career choices don’t keep you employed. So my real advice… choose what makes you HAPPY and what you can grow in and God handles the rest!

I permanently remove unwanted hair- Electrolysis. If you were to tell me 4 years ago I’d be making a difference in people’s lives by removing hair I would have thought that was crazy! I always have had a nurturing nature and wanted to help people. I used to think that I would work with chronically ill patients but now I see I make a big impact with removing small hairs! Electrolysis is a niche and an artform. Similar to make-up, lip injections, or permanent eyebrows… not everyone can do it and do it right. While it may seem quite simple to remove hair- many pieces come together to successfully remove hair for a permanent effect. Electrolysis uses a needle the size and width of the hair we’re removing. The needle is inserted into the natural opening of the skin where the hair shaft and follicle are attached. An electrical current through the needle destroys the cells and cuts the blood supply to the follicle. The follicle then detaches from the skin and we pull the hair out along with the follicle. The needle size, type, depth, insertion direction, strength of the current, and pull of the hair all play a vital part in the hair removal process. Thus why it is important to choose an electrologist who understands all of these aspects as they differ from person to person and hair type to hair type.
The most common question I get asked is about the effectiveness between hair laser and electrolysis. The truth is I have performed both and like both. Laser is great for a small majority of people wanting to treat leg or arm hairs. However, electrolysis is the ONLY permanent method of hair removal. The FDA has also recognized electrolysis as the only permanent hair removal method. The miseducation about laser leads many to believe it is permanent and the truth is… it is not. At some time the individual will have to maintain the previously treated hair with more laser to upkeep the results. In addition, for many of the individuals with excessive hair- AKA Hiritisim- laser cannot treat these hairs because they are likely hormonally grown. Electrolysis is the only answer for hormonal, white, or ingrown hair. Electrolysis can be used anywhere on the body and on any skin type. It is for all these reasons I am passionate about Electrolysis.
I set out to be the best in my scope of work and tailor the need to every patient differently. I take pride in choosing quality over quantity and do my best with every patient thatI have the pleasure of treating. I have had many individuals come to me with loss of hope or full of frustration with previous treatment providers who were not providing results. This is where all that I have learned in medicine or with previous medical aesthetic services help me make a decision on how to better help the patient. I assure all of my patients that I will always work to find a resolution for them and promise them results.
This promise I fulfill because I love what I do. I love to help these individuals who have hidden behind embarrassment, doubt, and loss of hope for a solution. I am so thankful I get to give them a piece of their life back and nurture their emotions during the process. I take all conditions of this career seriously and empathize with those seeking help. It is because of this that I grow each day and learn new things but sets me apart from others.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I moved to DFW 8 years ago from a small texas city. There are so many great things about this busy city! A few of my favorite daytime outdoor spots are downtown Dallas at Klide Warren park, hiking at Cedar Ridge Preserve, or the Fort Worth Stock Yard. Some of my favorite brunch, lunch or dinner eats include- ‘First Watch’, ‘The Social House’, ‘Ebb & Flow’ ‘The Capital Grille’ and ‘Fogo de Chao’. There are many great evening and nighttime spots in the city. I love downtown grapevine for a historical feel and 7th street downtown Fort Worth for a night out! The Tanger or Grandprarie Outlets are a fun way to shop during nice weather and the Bishop Arts District is always enjoyable.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
As cliche as it is… God is the main reason I am where I am. I pushed myself so hard to finish my degree to allow me to work in radiology but God was the one who kept opening opportunities related to skin. Also the people he placed in my life, physicians, colleagues, or friends who I met along the way that all taught me what I know now. One of those people- Mynda Cassarez. We met working at a Med Spa and immediately we both knew we were supposed to meet for a reason. Mynda recently purchased ‘Unique Spa Services’ and asked me to be her electrologist… so here I am. At first, I was hesitant. I was working full time in Dermatology and wasn’t sure if I should take the risk. I prayed on it for several weeks and God gave me signs and pushed me to take the leap of faith and I’m so happy I did.
