Beate, I understood Multiplex was for deeper and maybe curved follicles. Can you explain why Multiplex is a good current on shallow, telogen hairs?
Also, I always use Kelly tips for shallow, telogen hairs and can't picture how a tapered (non-insulated) or a standard IBP would be appropriate, let alone better.
Can you explain please? Really interesting.

Thanks for your reply Beate, but I would second Cherrytree's response...can you further expound on your use of a tapered/non-insulated for shallow, telogen hairs.

A quality probe, such as the IBP, helps in fast insertions and reduces coagulation pattern. But it also requires greater precision in placing the tip of the probe in the right place to achieve our purpose. The smaller the tip exposed, the greater should be the precision of your insertions.

The day that someone is able to invent a probe that can be inserted by itself, I'll be the first to applaud!

Agreed, Josefa. The precision lengths of Laurier IBP's call for mindful placing of the tip of the needle. They take a wee bit of getting used to and then they're totally worth it in improved sensation, reduced skin reaction and increased confidence as your work gets more precise.
Although they force you to think more, the work is worth it when you feel you are completely in charge of those hairs.

I use multiplex for the most stubborn of hairs. Is that what you are saying, Beate? Or are you saying you use it more for the vellus and accelerated vellus?

Hmmm....will check it out in the lower EL range....

No, i am using synchro for the most stubborn hair, and i actually do not like Multiplex at all for stubborns. My clients usually find the synchro pulses more tolerable - "less biting". After having had a series of healing complications with the Kelly tips i mostly keep my fingers away from them.

Although i did not take any measurements my impression is that the final strong and sharp pulse of the multiplex signal remains pretty concentrated around the tip, and then pre-weakening effect of the first pulse allows to reduce that final flash pulse a bit - compared to picoflash. BTW: i am always talking of total pulse lenghts of only 0.1 s or 0.2 s.

BTW: in those upper lip treatments there is some economic motivation NOT to use the IBPs - they are simply too expensive for treatments of 30 minutes or less. And luckily there are alternatives - the differences between the "good" needles are not toooooo large at low ELs.
