I want a product to permanently remove hair... help!!

I’ve been looking online and the only thing I could find is the Finally Free system, the Verseo Epen, and another one at Wonderfulbuys .com. All promise painless and permanent removel, which sounds fishy to me, but all said it will only work over time, which makes me really question the effectivness of these products. Has anyone ever actually used any of them long enough to prove real results?

I would love to say they do work but they don’t

I am forever trying to make the best out of a bad lot

for instance the Vector - and its need for a pro handset was my latest crusade - it worked and fixed the hole in their machine

But even that ‘cheap fix’ is nothing short of $200 or £110 UK

The best advice is to search ebay for a second hand pro unit - if you take a look at the EBAY section the team here go to great lengths to list the latest available models so thats the first step

if thats no good then try the ONE TOUCH system get a spare needle - that does work and there are plenty of modifications about to that here that can help you get the best from it <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

in the end the epens and tweezers and so on are useless - they simply are not worth the money - save up and do it properly - really x


I just got my vector today and you were right it says that you can use this machine with a needle but you need some kind of a licence and that tweezer is more safe and painless. I am now waiting for my handpiece and needles and will start killing these suckers full force:)
I’ll start with lowest settings and see what is the best.

thx sparx for a brilliant idea:)

its all about turning misery around

if that means fiddling with existing machines or turning something someone has in a drawer that for $20 bucks can make it live again then hooray <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

thats the beauty of this forums

PS remember you can buy better pro electrode pads and gels from any excercise ab belt shop to modify it better and more

The only thing the electrode pads are good for is giving you a ground you don’t have to hold. Don’t try to use them for actual hair removal.

Good point. Personally, I think they’re terrific for grounding. The main problem is that over long sessions significant acid builds up, leading to pad burns. Larger pads would help; we use approx. 1" x 1" pads. Are there good larger pads? Anybody have a good source?

This is really simple. You’re just trying to connect your body into the circuit. I use kitchen sponges, cut into thirds, giving a 3 inch by 1.5 inch pad. Soak in some slightly salty water and strap it to an ankle or wrist with some velcro. An aligator clip on the end of the wire grips the sponge. Really cheap and effective.

i agree on the sponge in salty water

however after a long session it can discolour the skin so use a part of the body that is out of obvious view <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

The discoloration is due to the build up of hydrochloric acid at the contact point of the negative, or inactive pole. This doesn’t seem to cause any negative effects on the palms of the hand, so a contact (EKG patch, or sponge) attatched to the palm of the hand would be ideal if it did not get in the way of your work.
