Hi everyone,

This is my first post here and I am so happy that I found this forum. I have been reading a lot about electrolysis in the past days and have the intention to continue.

I am a guy mid-20s and have suffered from hair growth for a good amount of time now. I tried a proper laser in two different salons, about 10 sessions on my back and shoulders. Today I sit with much more hairs (even stubborn hairs) than I had to begin with, so in other words I am not satisfied with result at all. The result is very short-term (3weeks maximum). As I said after 10 sessions I now sit with stubborn hairs on my shoulders, and I am not okay with that.

Once for all I need to find a solution, and based on my research electrolysis is the way to go, even though its time consuming.

I have booked an appointment with a salon nearby, a woman who claims to have over 25 years experience, which is good. I had the idea to go there for 2-3 sessions, before I buy a professional studio machine and start to do it (myself/someone close to me). Now I know this is not a joke, it requires a lot of time and reading, and I don't mind. I might even take a course or something. I will then teach it to someone close to me, so they can do this procedures on me. Well, enough about my situation.

My question to you all is what machine is to prefer?
I know that most salons use Clareblend or Apilus? Are those the one you recommend? What are the different between the various models they offer? What about price range? What would you recommend for my use?

I be thankful for any advices.

Continue having a great weekend!

The clareblend essence is one of two machines that seem to be most preferred by electrologists in a recent informal satisfaction survey. The other was the instantron spectrum elite. They are fine machines.

Thank you for your comment.

I would pretty much be working with the blend mode if I do it on my own body. Do you have know if the two mentioned machines do blend well enough?

clareblends are well known for their blend capabilities and I've had several electrologists tell me that the instantron works perfectly for blend. I dont own one ( but might eventually) so I cant really tell you from personal experience.

I have had training on the Instantron in blend modality and would always prefer it over the Apilus Junior i own if i did blend.

Thank you so much. I will do some research on these two machines. Specially Instantron, seems electrologist are satisfied with it.

Do you know if Instantron has a local supplier in North-Europe? Do they ship to Scandinavia? My plan is to spend around $1500-2000. Can I find used Instantron machine for this price?
