Hi there. I’m newish to the forums, and I’ve been reading quite a bit. I’m absolutely sure there’s plenty of good information here, but I had a specific question, and I was hoping for some smart, informed answers.
I’m looking to purchase an inexpensive (probably used) machine for $300-$400. I live in a very rural area, so I’d have to do it online. Is Ebay the best source of machines? How do I know what I’m looking for in a machine. Can I post links here (in this thread) and ask for advice on listings?
More about me: I’m 33, transgendered, transitioned 11 years ago and I’m trying to finish the process as economically as possible. The $400 I’d like to spend is pretty much my entire disposable income for a month, so it’s important to me that I do not waste any money.
I’ve used the One-Touch type of systems for ~40-50 hours with great success (very disciplined, very meticulous, no scarring, lots of hair gone); looking at other parts of my body in the future that I might like to work on, I’m starting to realize that a faster/better/more controlled device would really save me a lot of time because it’s probably more efficient. A foot pedal seems like an amazing luxury.
I feel extremely comfortable and confident about my ability to do electrolysis on myself, and I also have a partner who helps me with harder to reach areas. It’s possible over time that I might want to take up Electrolysis as a side job for a more diverse income (and that’s when I’d look at proper schooling.)
