Berkowits School of Electrolysis, Inc.
Berkowits School of Electrolysis was founded in 1978 by Barry Herman.
In 1982, Mr. Herman began manufacture of the Berkowits 2200S epilator, a needle-type thermolysis device. The device was cleared by FDA in 1986 under Docket K860056.

2002 Update: NO affiliation with berkowits.com or berkowits.net
Due to false and misleading data presented by an India-based practitioner which owns berkowits.com and berkowits.net, hairfacts contained some erroneous information suggesting that the US Berkowits device was not a needle epilator.
I received a letter from Berkowits Director Barry Herman on 15 August 2002 stating:
"If my school name is being used by someone else it is without my knowledge or consent… I have always only taught needle type hair removal."

Again, the India-based comany calling itself "Berkowits" has no connection whatsoever with the US-based Berkowits School. Hairfacts regrets the error and confusion caused by Dr. Jaishree’s false and misleading Indian website at berkowits.net.
