electrolysis needles

do all the needles have that thing that the needle is moving up when there is resistance so it can’t hurt your skin? I think I explained myself well:)
the one that one touch has. when you push it against skin it won go through but will back up.

Pro units don’t have that. It is just a hedge so that the untrained have something between them and easy injury.

so with proffesional niddles when you insert the needle you can kind of feel the resistance when you reach the end of the hair?

if you get a standard size type 3 one piece stainless

youd be surprised how well sized they are for the majority of hairs in that they go in to the point where the needle widens and thats more or less the bottom of the follicle

obviously some are shallower and some are deeper but you feel that resistance and you soon get used to doing it just go very slowly at first and practice on an area where if you needle stick a bit its not too obvious

is there a diffrence between stainless and disposable?

I have two to choose from
which ones are better?




yes i think you are getting confused here

uni probe make a special holder for the needles attached to the plastic where as the others are just regular standard needles

so if you plan on buying a uni probe handset then you will have to buy the special uni probe needles to fit it
banana fit cable for that though for the vector

if you buy a banana fit sterex then
Precision Disposable 003m

in theory they should all be only used once if you plan on reusing them then be careful to cover the needle when not in use or if children are about as it could seriously injure you say leaning over the machine if you forget its there and wipe the needle with ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL BEFORE EACH REUSE

after time it will get bendy and a bit worn out then sling it - if you have plenty of money then ditch it each time and use a new one x

PS A good rule of thumb is use a needle the same size as the hair you plan to remove

but most diyers on a budget cannot afford to do that so a 003 is the best bet for most purposes and use

PPS usually your machines supplier has a website or dealers who supply needles

for example I use an Apilus SM-500 and as my supplier stocks Ballet Needles i kinda just have always used them <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I think you’ve answered all my questions, now it’s time to buy vector get all the pieces needed and start my project:)
youve been great help
thanx sparx:)

PS just remember to buy the footpedal if you don’t want to buy that then buy a A SWITCHED HANDSET - sterex make them

Else you will never be able to insert the needle as it will be always live :@| <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />

one final thing

the on off switch at the back of the vector can need a really good push to click it on as you switch it on then you think this is broken - oh no (i wonder how many vector oweners simply don’t do this) - simply push the on off switch a bit harder till your hear a solid click - then its fine <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

i tested the one i have here with a digital test meter before use and found that this was the case - just a namby pamby weak finger <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> apart from this minor switch issue it performed very well <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
