Good morning, HairTell!
I am a new electrologist and I have been using a Fischer CBX epilator because that’s what I was trained on and what I felt most comfortable starting out with on my budget and experience.
However, I recently had one client try another electrologist in town and I am not sure who she chose, but I know that my biggest competitors have newer epilators. She said that she was going to continue treatments with the other electrologist because treatments were less painful and I can certainly understand that. One has a Evolution 5HD from Silhouettone and the other has what looks like an older model Apilus.
I have seen discussions with Skip Mahler and with Deedra regarding the various frequencies, etc. I have seen Deedra’s comments about how the Apilus offers more comfortable options for clients, etc.
I know some of you are probably thinking, because I’m new, that some the pain is coming from bad insertions, etc. However, I have had praise from many clients and only a handful who complain about pain.
However, I do not want to lose anymore clients for a reason like this!! So, I have a couple of questions?
1.) Does anyone see an issue with me using the Fischer CBX (will I achieve the same results with this epilator as compared to others)?
2.) I spent around $1,500 on the Fischer CBX from Texas Electrolysis Supply. If I were to purchase a new epilator, what would be the best, next step up in terms of comfort? I know the Apilus Pur is in the neighborhood of $11K and that is way over my budget. Also, at this time, training would be a bit of an issue.
Thank you to everyone who responds!!
