A few years ago, after saving up about $10,000, I had a course of LASER and IPL treatments (the clinic I went to had a new machine practically every time I went for treatment!). Unfortunately, the only thing the treatments permanently removed was (you guessed it) my $10,000.
I’m finally ready to go back for another try at the permanent hair removal game, and this time I’m going to heed all the warning sings and go for electrolysis.
I live in Sydney, Australia, and am trying to work out the best place to go for treatment - ie, some place that will have the most suitable machines for my needs, will be the most cost effective, and will be able to take on a fairly large job.
I’m a 26 year old male who has hair just about everywhere. I mainly had LASER/IPL treatments done on my chest and back, so there has been some reduction there (just not very much) … but I basically want my chest/stomach/back/shoulders/arms done, and maybe a thinning on my legs (not a complete removal). So yeah, a big job.
From what I’ve read here, a job that size seems best suited to flash thermolysis … but no-where in Sydney really seems to do this (that I can find). Is this really the process I should be searching for? I notice a few reputable looking places offer multi-probe galvanic. Is that too slow? A couple offer the option of two machines at once using this process. Would that make up the difference?
I know that it’s hard to assess things over the internet, but any pointers to the following questions would be appreciated:
 Does anyone know any good places for electrolysis in Sydney that could handle a case like mine? There was a referral in the referrals forum for the
Advanced Electrolysis Centre, Sydney, but that seems to offer galvanic. Ditto Permanence.
 What methods should I consider, and which should I rule out totally as being too slow? Specifics would be good, so I can call up places and ask in an informed way.
 I know this is pretty much impossible, but could anyone make a ballpark guess at how many hours of treatment time it would take (total)?
Sorry for such a long post and so many questions!
Any answers would be greatly appreciated!!
