my grandpa just hooked up the footswitch for me and i was wondering if i need a seperate needle or if the one from the clean and easy is what im supposed to use? james, since you’re practically the only one who responds to my questions i was hoping for response soon <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> thanks for all of your responses. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" /> anyone and everyone can add their tid bits too by the way thanks again i need to know soon though because i really need to attempt using it, and what lighting and mirror system should i buy??? i have no idea of a good one that people would reccomend??
I don’t know what system you are talking about, but you need to have disposeable needles/probes for your own safety. You need the brightest lighting you can get. Halogen if you can make it happen. The largest Mirror, with the Highest magnification you can find is also a must.
Most places max out at 5x or 7x magnification. Ten times would be really good, but very hard to find.
May I say that even the most crude home electrolysis set up that would be practical would still cost at least $250.00US
A used pro set up would cost at least $1,000.00US, and a new Pro Set Up with all the good stuff would be $12,000.00US
I know Transexuals who got fully cleared by pro’s for $12,000.00US!
hey thanks for all of your information james, once agai. ; ) well i have been using the clean and easy and it’s slowly working…i think? when i do it i get either a clear liquid thing or fog thing with a black dot at the end. however when i do it it doesn’t really hurt at all? i don’t understand why this is? but anyways i’ve only done it twice now but i only do it about every two weeks. i don’t know how much i’m actually supposed to do it for it to work the most effectively? i use a lamp light from the desk that works pretty well, i don’t have a hard time inserting the needle most of the time and it doesn’t hurt, i just hope im doing right. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> thanks for your response if you could follow up on this one that would also be great! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
It doesn’t have to hurt to work.
You only need to do it so that the hair pops out without any serious pulling or stretching of the hair.
Try to clear the area of the hairs you want removed, and then just try to keep the area clear.
How long per hair depends on the machine you are using, and the hair you are removing.
You may start out needing to do some every day, or every week, but later you will do it less and less.
You would probably do good to see a pro for a consultaion regardless of what you actually do for your on going treatment.
hey james thanks again for responding, you’re so nice…i was wondering about how much it would cost to get my hair removed professionally for the face, stomache, and nipples. i would just like an estimated round of a number. i do it like once a week right now on my own, but i don’t know how long it will take to do to keep it away permanetely? hopefully by summer,or sooner. thanks for everything again ~eroca <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
Thank you for your kind words.
Stomache and breast areas are usually easy, and quick. I would say that most people can clear those areas with $100.00US to $500.00US
Faces are really hard to estimate without seeing. It could be anywhere from $200.00 to $20,000.00 on the face, although most genetic females are in the low side of the scale. The women who don’t have any hair growing problems like PCOS, Hormonal problems, drug interactions and so on just have to get rid of the hair that they have from birth, and when that is gone, there is no more. Those who have hair recruiting problems(PCOS, drug interactions and so on…) will have to have continued hair removal sessions (Although less frequently, and at shorter intervals) until the hair recruiting problem can be brought under control, and all existing hair may be treated.
You are best to get a few consultations from people in your area and see what they say to you. Without seeing you, I can’t say if you could be finished in 5 hours spread out over 9 months, or if you would require 100 hours spread out over 5 years.
oh alright james, thanks once again. so if i wanted to get my stomache done by a professional it would take like 5 months and like 100-500 us dollars? that’s not bad at all. how much for the face if it is just hair without any of the pcos or whatever, but it seems to be homonal b/c i developed having more unwanted hair as i get older, i’m like 22 now so i wonder how much it would cost for my face? well thanks oh so much
How much you spend depends on how many hairs you have, how fast your practitioner is, if you get full clearance each and every time, and how often you get treatment.
I have had clients who got full clearance to finished on the face in 4 appointments for a total of One Hour and Thirty Minutes spread out over 9 months. I have others who require 500 hours spread out over 3 years (part of which is their insistence on not coming in for as long or as often as would be needed to keep them totally clear each and every time)
Without getting a hair count on you, it is hard to answer your question. I would need to see a picture of you at the very least.
Even then, I can’t tell you how long it will take you to get finished with the person YOU will be seeing.
