I have been using a fischer compublend since I started doing electrolysis and its going out. I have to turn both thermolysis and the electrolysis settings up very high even on vellous hairs to get them to ease out. I use the old fashioned blend modailty. My instructor trained me on an old proteus thermolysis machine that she still uses to date. I also trained under a lady who uses blend and thats what she used on me and thats what actually got rid of my menopausal hairs that I had plucked for yrs. So when i started I bought an extra fischer compublend machine she had and thats what I have been using since I started professionally doing the blend. I dont do it full time but I have 10 clients that I do and havent had any problems so far with the blend and some I have done only took 3 treatments for the hairs to totally disappear.
Now my question to anyone is, my machine is going out and I want to buy a new one. Im a hairstylist full time and electrology is my part time gig that I will eventually end up doing more towards the end of my hair career and electrology will take me into old age so i want to get a new machine NOW and pay it off with the monies I get from my electrology clients and when I DO make it fulltime, it will be paid off.
I have been looking at the apilus jr mainly because its in my price range and it seems to do the things I want and a little more. I started out doing thermolysis with the proteus in training class but when I tried doing thermolysis with my fischer compublend, it was too painful to my clients so I stuck with the blend because it seemed to be less painful to my clients and less skin reaction.
Does it sound like the Junior will be a good start for me at this point or what do you suggest I get? Im not familiar with the omniblend vs blend or the thermolysis setting vs the flash and I have done both therolysis and blend because I was trained in both but maybe there are just different terms but basically the same. At any rate, does the jr sound like a good investment for someone in my situation?
