Hmmm… Seems like the lady hit her head on her bathroom tub and now has a mental block with anything to do with the brand name ‘Apilus’
The two best brands are Apilus and Silhouet-Tone, both of the machines are great when used properly. -Clareblend isn’t so much one of the better machines so much as it is an average priced mainstay in the industry. Clareblend is second, or third, tier to the better machines. It’s more of a workhorse for those electrologists that rely heavily on the Blend method, as opposed to those electrologists that rely more on Flash. When used solely for Blend, it can compare to the better machines. But, when talking Flash, Microflash, or PicoFlash, Clareblends are left in the dust. They’re just not that technologically advanced.
Leaving Apilus out of the arguement, and now looking just at the other machine, the Silhouet-Tone. Those are very well designed and constructed machines. Even the lower rung SB-8, Blend 256, or older Sequentium 328’s are excellent machines. They’re made in Canada by a group of designers that really believe in quality. The machines last forever and function like tanks with excellent electrical current delivery. The Silhouet-Tones have lots of quirks to them that were built in as standard before even the present day high end machines began using. Like auto-stairstep pulsing, DC ramping, moisture level detectors, and auto-start/stop-timers. To me, Silhouet-Tone is a great company that just didn’t have the global business savvy of the people at Dectro/Apilus. And Apilus focused completely on electrolysis machines, Silhouet-Tone has their resources spread out with the production of many other aesthetic/cosmotology instruments, not getting behind and promoting their machines like they should.
But anyway, to make a long story short, the two best Silhouet-Tone machines are the older Sequentium 328 and the newer Sequentium VMC. Those are both excellent machines. I would chose them for a treatment over any Clareblend any day, any time, any where. If they have either of those machines you’re doing pretty good.
ps: Someone will most likely chime in that it’s not the machine but the skill of the operator. Obviously, you know that, no need to expound on that. But in comparing the machines, I tried to answer that point.
