The Cleo is a very basic machine, one step beneath an apilus Junior. I see them sometimes come up on kijiji for 400-800 dollars at most.$1550 is about double it's value.
I dont know anything about the uniprobe machines from precision. I'm not a fan of precision probes however who are the only people who make the uniprobe as it's a proprietary design. I understand af shank probe holder is available for the uniprobe . I also would not recommend pure thermolysis for a DIY er ,really at all. It is very possible to cut skin or cause scarring with thermolysis in the hands of an untrained individual.Heck I've done it and felt very foolish afterwards, because , I know better that to try it.
I would still look at arranging to get one shipped from ontario or quebec. There are more machines in this region for some reason.My other electrologist, recently bought an Apilus Senior for $400 privately and I almost bought a second for $100. The deals are out there if you look for them.
