History of Precision Electrolysis and UniProbe
Precision Electrolysis was founded in the 1970’s as the production arm of the Ferrie Manufacturing Co. of Providence, Rhode Island. Ferrie Manufacturing Co. was owned by Joseph and Nina Ferrie (Nina being past president and founding member of the American Electrolysis Association). Ferrie Manufacturing Co. produced Thermolysis Epilators and hand- made Electrolysis Needles (the Ferrie or “F” shank needle). They were one of, if not the first company to produce a transistorized Epilator, the Thermaderm.
In the early 1970’s Mr. Ferrie approached Harry W. Cary III with a proposal to automate production of Electrolysis needles. Up until this time, virtually all Epilation needles were hand- made. After years of research and development, the first mass produced Epilation needles began to be marketed by Precision Electrolysis from the equipment designed my Mr. Cary.
In 1980 Precision Electrolysis was purchased by our president, Harry W. Cary III. Within one year, we had lowered the per-piece price of two-piece Epilation needles to a price never seen before. And, our customer base swelled immediately.
Sterile Disposable Needles
In the early 1980’s we were approached by Mr. John Heath of Coventry, England with a proposal to supply Epilation needles to them for the first Sterile Epilation Needles (Sterex). So, for the first 3-4 years of their existence we produced all the needles for the Sterex Company.
In the mid 1980’s Sterex began to produce their own needles in the U.K. and we at Precision introduced our own Precision Sterile Disposable needles.
The needle market swelled over the years with other new companies springing up. All of these companies produced variations of traditional, standard two-piece or one-piece needles and most still do. This basic design of traditional needles has changed little in over 100 years, although there has been improvement in sterilization and packaging.
Research and Development
Through all of these changes our President, Mr. Cary and staff, experimented with numerous ideas/inventions with the intent of not matching, but improving traditional Epilation needle design. He wanted a totally new design and/or concept that included factors like: Safety, Efficiency, Ease of use etc. All areas in which traditional needles were lacking. In addition to being an engineer, Mr. Cary is also a licensed Electrologist, the two essential tools required for the endeavor.
UniProbe, a unique patented design
In answer to these demands and after years of research and development, UniProbe was born. A combination probe and cap that eliminates the tedium of using a sterile screw-on holder cap for each client, not to mention the caps cleaning and sterilization. This new product (UniProbe), with its unique design also protects you, the Electrologist from needle sticks, a major worry for all of us. It is color-coded by size and incorporates an exclusive safety cap and disposal device. UniProbe is the only patented Epilation needle on the international market and has been for years with six international patents.
UniProbe, safer and less expensive
One last very important statistic is that more than 20 years after its introduction, UniProbe still sells at its original retail price! Precision Electrolysis continues on with innovations like our Daisy multi-use needle-holder, accessories, Epilators and other devices, all designed to make the Electrologists job safer and easier.
After 40+ years for producing Electrolysis products our commitment to you, the Electrologist and our profession remain unchanged. With a licensed Electrologist as our President how could it be any other way?
