I recently purchased a One Touch off ebay. I’m aware of the negatives regarding it, but feel it’s my last resort right now. I believe I have PCOS, but do not have med. insurance to be properly diagnosed. I also can’t afford professional electrolysis. I purchased this mainly to remove hair from my sideburns, chin, neck, and chest. In those areas I have course dark hair, that i’m very self-concious about. It’s practically ruined my life. I decided to start using it on my chest first to get a feel for it before using it on my face/neck. I have some questions…
Is it better to use a lower setting like 1 and treat it longer than using a higher setting for a shorter period?
Is a cream/clear colored stuff supposed to ooze out? (gross I know!)
Sometimes I pull the hair out and the bulb is white, other times it’s normal with a clear sheath. Do both of those mean I treated it correctly?
The bug bite like welts go away quickly but I’m left with pimple like dots and some of them have little pin holes with scabs. Is that okay? I hope I’m not frying my skin! I’ve been applying aloe vera gel afterwards.
5.Is it better to let the hair grow out some before treating it?
Okay enough questions. I just want to make sure I’m using this properly before I make the jump to treating my neck/chin/sideburns.
Finally, does anyone know where I can buy a good magnafied mirror that’s inexpensive? I have a lighted makeup mirror with maybe a 2-3 magnification but I find it really difficult to see the follicle in it.
Thanks in advance. I’m glad I found this place, it helps to know I’m not the only one with this problem!
