Actually we just saw a video by Dr. Schuster, and indeed, there is not a precise temperature; rather it's a range, which you no doubt found in your day-long experimenting smile If I ever get to visit Europe, I really hope I spend it eating great food and not in a lab. I can't imagine how scary the autobahn would be!

Michael, toupees are 80s technology. The new thing in town is called a "hair system." It doesn't fly as easy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCJd0Wr9sm4

I'm very familiar with this ... not a good option, unless you want to get fiddled with every week ... still a toupee ... just stuck on like crazy.

That's where you're probably wrong, Michael! Junko's Electrolysis at 102 Brahms Ave in North York, Ontario, Canada, M2H 1H6:

"Using Japanese Hi-Tec (Kobayashi-, Yamada Method), no Hair Regrowth-Zero Scarring, Completed In 10-15 Treatments; Using Japanese Hi-Tec (Kobayashi-Yamada Method) no Hair Regrowth-Zero Scarring Completed In 10-15 Treatments; Using Japanese Hi-Tec, no Hair Regrowth-Zero Scarring, Completed In 10-15 Treatment"

words taken verbatim from:

https://www.cylex.ca/company/junkos-electrolysis-12079884.html

Ha ha ha ha! So it IS being performed in North America! Actually, probably not:

Perhaps Junko just means that they use the same weird needles that the HR5000 uses, or uses the HR5000 machine at much lower settings (if that's even possible), because I don't think it would take 10-15 treatments if you're really doing Kobayashi-Yamada, because if it's being performed properly, it would only take four sessions at the most.


I just saw an opportunity for a joke. The unconventional grammar of Junko's write-up makes it unclear whether she's just using their needles and/or machine or actually using their technique, so perhaps she isn't lying.

Funny man ... thanks.

Actually, a couple years ago TBC wanted me to sell this type of needle (the 90 degree beauties) to electrologists in N. America. I "pitched" them ... it was not a "go."

When I did electrolysis school, the kobiyashi-yamada method was still taught. I too had never heard of it used in north america.I am wondering however if that is what the fellow having electrolysis done at the yanhee hospital was having done? If so that would be the only reference I am aware of that method being used in hairtell history.

Yes, I'm pretty sure it must have been, because Kostik, the poster who was having it done, posted photos of the HR5000 machine and photos of those 90-degree angle needles. He wrote that he had lidocaine injections and that when the needle strayed from a frozen area, it hurt like a Dickens.

Yet in the same section by the same manufacturer, they have a diagram of a cross-section of skin where the have the labels "Hypodermis/High moisture", "Dermis /Normal moisture" and "Epidermis /Low moisture". In the diagram they have the bulb and where the papilla should be look like they are between the hypodermis and the dermis. Shouldn't they have written, We know that skin moisture is concentrated in the hypodermis and the dermis"? Or is the hypodermis not considered "skin" because it's adipose tissue?
