Recently I was told something I never heard of before. Earlier, however, a different electrologist told me that a danger of having two technicians work on the same person is that if you jump/startle from the pain of a zap, it can make the other technician's filament prematurely exit the follicle and thus burn the surface of the skin. But maybe she assumed I would be getting two technicians to perform thermolysis on me. Or she would somehow hook both stylets into one machine.

I was told by an electrologist recently that it is illegal for a client to be worked on by two technicians using the blend using two machines. She said it's because the current that flows through the person won't know which machine to exit back to. So, if two technicians are to work on the same person at the same time using two different machines, they have to both be using thermolysis only. So, I guess it is dangerous to have one technician work on your left side using thermolysis from one machine, and another technician working on your right side using blend (or galvanic) from a second machine? Is the only safe way to have two machines going at the same time on one client is for them both to be running thermolysis only?

I don't know if they are using just thermolysis-only but with two separate machines in this photo, or blend but just one machine, or what:

So maybe the stylet held by one of the technicians in this video is actually hooked up to the MNG machine, and not a separate machine? Maybe they aren't using two different machines? Maybe they are using just one machine?

What is your opinion on these things? Is the electrologist who warned me against non-thermolysis double-technician electrolysis correct? Is it really illegal?

load of hogwash.
I'd have asked the esthician to quote the law. It does not exist.
Sounds like a good reason to avoid that esthician like the plague.
