NOTE: NO affiliation with Berkowits School of Electrolysis in New York
Despite claims on these websites, there is NO affiliation between these two sites and the reputable US-based Berkowits School of Electrolysis founded in 1978 by Barry Herman.
Due to false and misleading information presented by the India-based company which owns berkowits.net, Hairfacts contained some erroneous information suggesting a connection. Hairfacts regrets this error.
This India-based company and their electric tweezer "Microlysis" device should be avoided by all consumers.

In 2002, the berkowits.com site originating in India was taken down, but the berkowits.net site in India remains active. Dr. Jaishree sells an electric tweezer, and she calls this device the "Latest Needleless Microlysis American Permanent Hair Removal System."
As you can see in this profile, there is a clear claim that Dr. Jaishree’s electric tweezer device is allegedly affiliated with the US school:
"Berkowits, founded by Dr.Jaishree in india, is affiliated to Berkowits USA… Being the founder of berkowits American School of Electrolysis and Berkowits Cosmetic and skin Clinic, she knows her business in great depth.
I received a letter from the US Berkowits School’s Director, Barry Herman, on 15 August 2002. he states:
"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 company calling itself "Berkowits" has no connection whatsoever with the US-based Berkowits School. Hairfacts regrets any errors and confusion caused by Dr. Jaishree’s false and misleading Indian website promoting electric tweezers.
