I thought it would be interesting to see what kind of settings everyone is using. I realize that there’s really not many active DIY’ers on this forum but still, hopefully this gives those that just read the forum a chance to share!
Silhouet-Tone SB 2 [Thermolysis range 0 - 10] [Galvanic Range 0 - 3.0] (in decimal increments)
Thermolysis i use 3 as kind of a global setting. With deeper insertions (lower stomach) i find that taking it up a notch to 3.5 - 4.0 effectively kills the follicle. My timer is set to shut off at 0.33 seconds, occasionally i will pulse twice if i don’t think it is fully dead.
Galvanic i’m using anywhere from 0.7 to 1.0 depending on the depth of the hair. For thick dark hairs i find i can apply galvanic at about 0.8 for 3-5 seconds and the hair will be dead. i use 1.0 at about 5-8 seconds for deeper hair.
Blend has always been a bit confusing to me, since i rarely use it. Stomach hair for example requires a deeper insertion, i use Galvanic at 1.0 and thermolysis at around 2 and ‘pulse’ the follicle quickly to heat it up with thermolysis every second for about 5 seconds. For arm hair etc, i usually use Galvanic at 8.0 and therm at 2 and pulse the hair with the same method for usually less time. Perhaps there’s a happy median that i just haven’t found yet.
