Interesting to check that quality does not always equal to price.
Josefa, one of the fastest and effective electrologist charges € 70 / hour.

"And she doesnt want to remove the tiny black one because , according to her, upperlip needs some hairs to protect from aging..."

Perhaps she is referring to the death of stem cells located in "the bulge" area of the follicle. Mike Bono has written on this forum about how research into treating male pattern baldness has led to the discovery of the function of these stem cells. It is said that the stem cells regenerate the papilla, as well as other parts, so that if you kill the stem cells, you also will make the skin look aged faster. Stem cells play a part in youthful-looking skin, but if you don't kill them, the papilla that feeds the hair follicle will come back (so some people argue). So, I don't think your electrologist was trying to lie to you about that.

I will eventually do a video on this "anagen only and papilla: the target" myth. A VERY VERY stubborn myth indeed. (Interesting that this myth was exploded in 1968 ... but, for some reason, it persists!) And, because my nephew is fluent in French, we will do a French translation (voice over).

I have not given up on Youtube and now have a bunch of videos to publish. However, until Youtube "figures out the mess they have created" we are not going to publish them. Doing this is like throwing our work into a "black hole." Another entity may pick up where Youtube has failed. Or, perhaps, they will fire the idiot CEO who ruined the thing.

Back in the 1980s when I was in the Netherlands, the authorities (ANBOS) had recently-graduated electrologists perform on a person's legs (testing their skills). If the electrologist was unlucky enough to remove a telogen hair ... she would FAIL the test, because they thought she had "broken off the hair." At the time, they had no understanding of the shedding cycle.

I actually witnessed the testing, and the person testing the candidate would say, "Oh my ... you just broke off the hair; no root. Sorry but you just failed the test!"

I stopped them mid-test, and seriously got their attention! (Everybody passed that day.)

What a brilliant idea Mike ! A lot of people need this kind of video. I did not get exactly what happened to you with YouTube. I hope it can be fixed.
Consumers and electrolysis practicionners need your didactic videos.

Michael, regarding Youtube: might dailymotion be an alternative? AFAIK that's the 2nd largest video portal, and it is located in Europe (France).
