Still the greatest!
Judith is the only electrologist/IPL practitioner I have seen in years. She knows the technology and understands hair removal and is a total professional.

Super Nice Lady Knows Her Stuff!
From everything she said, Judith Saperstone knows hair removal inside and out. She did a careful evaluation of me, hoping I had enough pigment in my hair to be able to benefit from IPL, which would have saved me money and time, but sadly, I did not. Electrolysis is not fun but neither is it awful. I was amazed at the progress Judith made in just my 1st hour. I know plenty more hair is lurking, but this was very encouraging. I am looking forward to going back and getting this job DON

Meet with Judith for a free consultation. She is great at explaining everything. She is also very friendly and makes you feel comfortable from the start. Excited to start the hair removal process!

Judith is very knowledgeable, friendly and flexible. She goes out of her way to make sure she meets your needs. Professional setting in a great location. I appreciate her service.

Easy, friendly, thorough
Do yourself a favor and go to Judith who has years of experience and does the job right. No need to shop around, she's thorough, uses good technique and is a pleasant story teller to distract you while she works. Plus the building is an amazing piece of Oregon history.

really good practioner
I have been treating with Judith for a long time and will continue - she keeps me well-groomed and I have a high level of trust in her expertise.
Jun 23, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Great experience, was not as painful as I thought it was going to be. Friendly & professional. Will go back again.
May 15, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
I enjoy Judith's delightful story-telling and conversation while she works to make me feel beautiful. Her techniques are really effective, so I almost regret come less frequently. I now consider her a friend, and a highly recommended professional.
Mar 26, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Such a great person and professional
I have been visiting Judith regularly for years - can't imagine using anyone else. She is really knowledgeable and a careful and caring person.
Feb 15, 2016http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Took my teenage daughter in for IPL and Judith was great about explaining exactly what would happen.
Dec 10, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
I have been seeing Judith for years - she is the only person I trust with electrolysis and IPL. She is serious about her training, completely professional and skilled.
Dec 3, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Great space, excellent care. Looking forward to seeing the results! Judith is pleasant and professional.

Professional and Pleasant
Judith Saperstone is very professional. She explains all options and provides her services very competently. She is always pleasant and efficient. I highly recommend her for hair removal services.

You can't do better than solid 5 stars from all.
I chose this hair removal clinic based on the non-stop 5 star reviews. Very rare to find someone who leaves every client with zero complaints! As everyone has already said, Judith Saperstone is very nice, thoroughly knowledgeable, highly skilled, and honest. She will also not try to buffalo you in to unreasonable expectations. In other words, you can't do better.

5 Stars for Saperstone
The lady that owns the business is named Judith. She is a master in the field of hair removal and possess the innate gift of hospitality; I highly recommend this place. She is a true professional in every sense of the word. Thank you Judith Saperstone.
Jul 16, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Very informative and comfortable atmosphere!
Judith is great. She is friendly and I felt comfortable right away. Judith explained the hair growth cycle and the different processes of hair removal, and then demonstrated ipl & electrolysis on me so I could make an informed decision. I will definitely be going back :)
May 30, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
I've been dealing with un-wanted hair for so many years and after many different kinds of laser and electrolysis had lost hope that it could truly be removed--but discovering Judith and her attention to detail along with IPL treatments, I'm finally nearly hair free...it's working and I'm so excited. Contact Judith she is the best!
May 14, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
As good as this type of service can get
Judith is one of the coolest and sweetest people in Portland. She's very knowledgeable with regards to her industry and services. She doesn't make you feel embarrassed, She make's you feel so at ease you almost forget about what you're having done!
Apr 12, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Judith is great.
Judith makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. Not scary at all. I would definitely go back to her again.
Mar 30, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
You will feel at ease the moment you meet Judith and will soon get lost in conversation and loose track of time. I am a long time patient of various hair removal methods over the last 25 yrs., with many years of electrolysis from the old school machines (extremely painful and long healing time) and several rounds of laser. The blended method of electrolysis that Judith uses is a "walk in the park" as far as pain goes. Let her help you feel better about yourself. You Will Not Regret It!!
Mar 23, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
The results are amazing!
Judith has been working on my face with IPL for only a brief amount of time and the results are fantastic, beyond my expectations. The atmosphere is squeaky clean and Judith's personality is warm with a great sense of humor; which helps when your dealing with such a sensitive subject for most women (and some men I'm sure!).
Feb 13, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Reliable and Effective
Judith's work is so effective I didn't have to see her for two years. Alas, getting older not only brings wisdom it also brings unwanted hairs. Of course I went back to Judith and it was like I just saw her the week before. She's always welcoming and provides a very comfortable environment. After my first foray into IPL (loved the results) and some electrolysis it's nice to know she is always there and is so good at what she does that her clients don't even need her for a year or two at a time!
Jan 15, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
I am very pleased with my experience with Judith. I tried electrolysis for the first time about a year ago with a different provider. I went a few times but it wasn't a good experience. I was going to give up and just accept my unwanted hair but thought I'd give one more try with someone else. The difference was night and day. Judith is very knowledgeable and efficient. I was given reasonable expectations of what to expect and I am seeing the results I was wanting.
Jan 8, 2015http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
fantastic results & comfortable enviornment
I was very skeptical going into my first consultation with Judith because I had never had great results before, after YEARS of trying to get rid of un-wanted hair...but right away Judith made me feel comfortable, educated me on the subject more than anyone had previously...and was just an enjoyable person to talk with. I chose to go the IPL route, and have experienced incredible, permanent results that were really just a dream before. Judith is simply the best, you won't be disappointed!
Dec 29, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
friendly and efficient
Judith is always a pleasure. She is professional and knowledgeable and keeps good conversation and does excellent and thorough work.
Oct 24, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
I am a longstanding client. Judith always provides prompt and professional services. She explains the procedures and her recommendations. I have always been very satisfied with her services.
Aug 14, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
The new office is comfortable and quiet and the service is professional and outstanding. I have a high level of trust in Judith's services and have never had a problem. Love the speed and ease of IPL.
Jul 18, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
I went in for a free consult for electrolysis. The practitioner is very bright, professional and very personable. Her office is clean and comfortable, located in a very beautiful historic building in downtown Portland near the courthouse. Streetside parking was easy. The consult included the relevant health history, explanation of the various treatments and methods, and a sample treatment with each method. Affordable, Interesting & fun!
Jun 29, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Judith is highly professional and effective with minimal fuss or discomfort. Visiting her is a therapeutic experience.
Mar 25, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
I had a wonderful experience with Judith at my initial consultation and have already scheduled a second (and much longer!) appointment. She took her time and thoroughly explained the electrolysis process to me, ensuring that I was both comfortable and informed. I believe she mentioned that she uses the blend technique, and I believe it works! The patch of hair that she treated is still hair-free a week later. I can't wait for my second treatment!
Feb 21, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Judith is professional, discreet, and enjoyable to talk with. I recommended her for any unsightly hair removal request.
Jan 3, 2014http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Judith is extremely skilled at hair removal and very professional as well. I trust her already after one session and plan to return. I have found with many of these professionals that there is a fine balance between being warm and friendly and 'getting the job done'. She excels at both (friendly and proficient)! I also value the good use of time. And on a side note, I tremendously enjoyed the beautiful music. But most of all, I valued her careful precision and technique.
Oct 19, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
I mean if you can have fun at an electrolysis appt then it would have to be with Judith. She's relaxed, friendly and CLEARLY experienced! Absolutely recommend!
Sep 8, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
I have been seeing Judith for several years and I very happy with her service. She is prompt, thorough and careful. I would recommend her to anyone needing hair removal.
Sep 5, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Judith is someone I really trust - I have been seeing her for quite some time. I've had treatments with a number of providers over the years but she's head and shoulders above them.
Jul 28, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
i have known judith for years. she is a delight, knows her craft and is reasonably priced. what more could you want?
Jun 24, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
This was my first experience with this type of service. Judith puts you at ease, made me very comfortable and informs you of every step along the way and what to expect. Personally,I experienced very little pain, definitely tolerable, with the electrolysis. I also had some ILP treatment done which was painless. Avery positive experience!
Jun 20, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
After doing thorough research on hair removal services in the Portland metro area, I discovered Judith Saperstone. The info provided on her website was extremely informative. Setting up an appointment online was easy, simple & fast as was my complimentary consult. Had first treatment & will be recommending to anyone in need of this service, as Judith's not only a consummate professional, but completely personally empathizes with the trauma surrounding unwanted hair growth.
Apr 19, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
I am really happy with the IPL services - through a few sessions there has been a major reduction in hair and regrowth is sparse and slow. The process is really worth it. It isn't particularly uncomfortable (and I'd say it's boring, but Judith is great fun to talk to)
Apr 15, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
she is an absolute delight to work with. her ministrations are effective and basically pain free. i would refer anyone to judith. ~
Apr 7, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Comfort and Quality
Judith creates a comfortable atmosphere with her friendliness and caring. She does high quality work at rates that are just below what I found elsewhere. Even though I would prefer not to have to go, I am glad to have found someone so competent and nice. I highly recommend going here.
Mar 10, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Well worth the investment!
Judith is a true professional. Her work is very detailed and can take hours at a time. She always provides a clean setting, prompt service and is very attentive. In addition, she will enlighten you with insightful, engaging and intelligent conversation and some good old humor. My hair removal results with her IPL machine have been remarkable!
Jan 19, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Judith is awesome. She does a great job of putting you at ease. I've had excellent hair removal results.
Jan 17, 2013http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
I love Judith, she is always professional and she always takes the time to review my needs as a client.
Dec 22, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
I am very happy with the hair removal services that I received. The office was clean and fresh. A very good experience.
Dec 8, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Was in for an IPL consult. Judith was very chatty, very bubbly. I received a free treatment on lip. I was not given protective eyeware but simply asked to close my eyes- not sure if this is the correct procedure (or not). I recommend going to her for a consult (you get a free treatment) and then deciding if you like her or not. She does have credentials and is certified.
Nov 29, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Always go to Judith
She really works to ensure a perfect result! Everyone who wants to rid themselves of unwanted hair should go to Judith.
Nov 15, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Excellent results and outstanding service!
Judith was great. She explained my options and I decided to go with IPL. Discomfort minimal -- only the light distracted me. Judith kept me informed during the entire process and told me what to expect the next day. Sure enough, my skin looked exactly as she said it would and it did in fact clear up and I am a new convert to IPL. I am thrilled with the results and plan on doing other body parts down the road. I highly recommend Judith for her professionalism and clean office.
Nov 13, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Professional and personable
I used Judith at Hair Removal - Downtown Portland for electrolysis in the past, and was always well pleased with the results. My most recent visit was for IPL treatment. I particularly appreciated the materials Judith provided to help me understand what to expect. Judith is both personable and professional. I highly recommend her services.
Nov 8, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
I went in yesterday very uncertain about ipl and electrolysis and Judith was extremely informative, not only did she explain each in great detail, she gave me a sampling of both so i could get a taste of what to expect at my first appt. I will be scheduling my appt very soon!
Nov 2, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Very nice visit for electrolysis. Easy location, clean facility and very friendly. Happy with results. Thank you.
Sep 19, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
another good visit
This follows another pleasant and productive visit with Judith. I'm making a fair bit of progress with IPL treatments.
Aug 5, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Great service in convenient location
Friendly service and meticulous technique in a very clean, pleasant office make for a winning combination!!!
Jul 6, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Pleasant and discreet
Just a little bit of hair removal can do wonders for increasing your confidence. I am happy to recommend Judith to anyone looking for electrolysis or IPL. She is trustworthy, efficient and competent.
May 9, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
really happy with IPL results
I have been doing traditional electrolysis with Judith for a number of years and was pretty excited when she got the IPL equiments (and the certifications tha go along with it). I have a really high trust level of her work, and have to say that I have been REALLY happy with the IPL results.
Apr 21, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Best Place Ever For Hair Removal!
This is the only place to go for hair removal. Judith is professional, kind, and detail oriented. I have done both Electrolysis and IPL. Love the IPL - big fan of that. However, in many situations both forms of removal are needed to be thorough. Don't hesitate to try this place, I highly recommend it.
Mar 30, 2012http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Should have done this sooner. Judith is informed and delightful. I have only done one appointment, but I already see how this is going to free up time and money spent on waxing.

Downtown Electrolysis will be your last stop for hair removal
I've been going to Downtown Electrolysis for a while now and appreciate the quiet and private atmosphere. Judith is always a welcoming presence. Recently, Judith added IPL (Intense pulsed light) to her repertoire. Wow. What an impressive piece of equipment. Not only is it more comfortable than electrolysis, it's faster and easier to treat large areas. I've already started using IPL on my underarms and plan on moving on to other areas (legs, bikini line). Judith will be your last hair removalstop
Jul 18, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Fantastic Electrolysis Ever
Judith is a great Electrolysis. She is very aware of her clients needs and concerns . Judith is flexible with her appointments and will always try to make it convenient for the client and their needs. Judith has a great skill and will not disappoint you .
Jul 10, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Kind and caring
Judith is great! She is sensitive to client needs (and sensitivity), and she is thorough in her approach. She's also a very interesting person so it's fun to chat with her - which helps refocus attention. I appreciate her flexibility - always willing to work around my schedule to meet my needs.
Apr 24, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Honest and Friendly
Judith is a great person and a skilled electrologist. She makes electrolysis sessions as fun as they can be and is straight-forward about the treatments/estimated outcomes, etc. Scheduling and payment are a breeze and the general atmosphere is welcoming, not intimidating.
Apr 3, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
I have only been seeing Judith for about 8 months but have been completely happy with the progress we are making. Additionally, Judith is comfortable to talk with, very accomodating schedule-wise and listens extremely well now that we are into the brow SHAPING stage of my teatments. (I was considered a prime candidate for lazer hair removal and found it a waste of time and money.)
Mar 4, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Good Service-I recommend it.
Have been seeing Judith for many years and I highly recommend her. And being able to now book online without needing any kind of log-in is easy & quick.
Jan 30, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Wish I had done this 10 years ago
Judith is great; she has the skill and patience to make you comfortable. I have found electrolysis to be painless but it takes time. Stop procrastinating and get started!
Jan 29, 2011http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Downtown Electrolysis Portland is the best!
Judith is fantastic. I have been seeing her for a few years now and I like to call her my therapist. She makes you feel comfortable, does a fabulous job, all the while giving her best advice on matters of life. I would highly recommend her, she is the best.
Dec 19, 2010http://www.genbook.com/bookings/slot/reservation/30102899
Downtown Electrolysis Portland
Judith is very professional and flexible. From my first visit I always felt very comfortable . Judith does a great job. Her goal is to satisfy her customer with the detail and experience she has been practicing for many years. Do yourself a favor, stop wasting your time and give Judith a call. You will not be sorry....
