1. ES is a high power epilator (Model K)
2. No known chronic issues
3. Blended currents available
4. Flash and micro-flash (hundredths of a second)
5. Air desensitizer (optional)
6. Reasonable price
7. Up to 3 pulses can be programmed into machine
8. Accessory tester on front panel - no more guesswork

Note: the ES does NOT have presets for various body areas and
hair types. Any experienced electrologist can easily
adapt to it.

To me one of the most important questions: which timings are available between 0.1 and 0.3 secs? Steps of 1/10th secs, like the older Spectrum, steps of 1/100th secs or something else?
The latter would give You a much better flexibility to adapt between sensation and healing. (I have been in discussion with Skip on that...)

What about heating patterns? Are thermolysis units producing effective heating patterns to cover sufficient tissue in the follicles? Is the industry too focused on painless sensations and rapid healing at expense of poor heating patters that don't destroy follicles in least possible clearances?

That's easy fenix, the heating patterns are dictated by the timings.

I will re-phrase my post. Is upgrading the timing to shorter increments just an idea at this point or will this feature be implemented into new machines?
