The U.S. Department of Labor classifies the career of electrologist under the occupation of skin care specialist. It predicts that employment for skin care specialist will increase much faster than the average for all careers through 2028. This favorable outlook is due to both a growing population and changing attitudes towards cosmetology in general, namely that procedures such as electrolysis, once viewed as luxuries for the wealthy, are now accepted as a routine part of maintaining one's personal appearance. Many salons, professional offices, and hospitals and clinics are striving to offer cutting-edge technologies and services to maintain—or gain—a competitive edge, which will create more jobs for electrologists. Further, the demand for electrologists is growing due to the increased awareness of and interest in this service. An increasing number of people feel comfortable with the procedure and are scheduling sessions. Although the outlook for electrologists will not be as strong as it is for skin care specialists, it will still be good. There are generally greater opportunities for electrologists in larger cities and highly populated areas.
