My, my, my - hmmmmm. Okay… Sounds like your’re still determined to go forward and do-it-yourself.
Jim2, it would be very helpful if you could force yourself to read a good electrology book to acquaint yourself with the basics. I really like “Cosmetic and Medical Electrolysis and Temporary Hair Removal” by R.N. Richards, M.D. and G.E. Meharg R.N. It costs about $60-$70.00, but is well worth the money. Even though it is a thick book, you can do this.
The mags I use cost $1,800 (surgical telescopes from Orascoptic research) and my favorite topical is 5% Lidocaine (Ela-max)which can be ordered from Ferndale Labatories or Prestige Electrolysis Of course there are other sources where you can purchase the lidocaine, but that’s how I order it. Most people I work on don’t need an anesthetic, but for a few “upper lippers”, they need some help to take the edge off that area.
I use a halogen light source, but there are cooler light sources to be found. Go to the www.prestigeelec.com website and peruse the products. As a non-electrologist,I’m not sure they will let you order some products.
