i’m sure my situation isn’t so desperate (luckily) and other issues need help more seriously, so i won’t yell ‘help badly needed’, yet if you have the few spare minutes please read on and help if you can!
like most people here i’m trying to get some nasty hair removed, yet i’m a student on a VERY low budget, meaning that even a one touch is too expensive if it lasts no more than a few months. also, male hair removal is a topic that is to be avoided in our country, so ordering online with my parents’ credit card would be rather awkward. thus i decided to make my own device based on the hairfreethere site. problem is, as it probably have turned out, english isn’t my native language and understanding all the terminology is tough. basically i’m trying to sort out what parts do i have to order online no matter what and what parts can be purchased at any domestic DIY store or skipped entirely.
what i’m confused about in particular is the piece that one actually holds, that resembles a pen. does it consist of a probe (needle?), and a stylus / needle holder, or is there a third intermediate piece to which the needle itself is attached? is there any function of the stylus other than facilitating the grip (and of course forwarding the current) or in theory it could be omitted or replaced by anything to which the probe can be firmly attached?
second thing i’m seeking advise on (promise there won’t be more <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> is a supplier within the EU that sells appropriate needles and a compatible stylus (if required) similar to that of Uniprobe suggested at hairfreethere. the reason i need the EU equivalent is to by-pass my parents, as i can use my friend’s credit card, but it is authorized for online purchase only within this area. since i’m not at all familiar with these devices and brands, a direct link to the products would be the best.
i know some reading the post may think this home electrolysis with a home made device is a no no, but given the unavailability of professional services of this kind even to females in our country, and the somewhat limited money i have this seems to be the only option for a permanent solution. i don’t care about scars nor pain, and i’m fairly comfortable when working on really small details and also in front of a mirror and i have the patience, yet lack the money, so please understand my choice. thank you!
