I am interested in hearing opinions on the Clareblend Elegance Plus vs. the Instantron Elite Spectrum. I know the Clareblend epilator is designed around low-intensity slow-rise RF like the old Hinkel machines. How does the Instantron compare?

Clareblend does not hold a candle to the Spectrum FP IMO

Where can I buy a classic Hinkel machine? I know they are out of production, but I don't find anyone who sell an used Hinkel machine, and possibly ship to Sweden. Any advice? Is it any other machine which is a good substitute for this one? I have decided to not go for Clareblend, since it costs about $4500 dollar in my country, which is too expensive as my first machine. I appreciate any other advice.

I have one more question. Instead of creating a new thread, I just post it her.

I went to a professional clinic, and she removed a hair on my arm for testm using blend method. She said that it hurts a lot, but I almost didn't feel anything. I told her that, she said that I was lucky.

I asked her what current she used, she said about 0,8 on Thermolysis and a little bit below 2 on current galvanic.

In my head, this level of intensity is very low, however I am not an expert. So my question is, did she used low intensity on purpose to make me come back and do a sell, or am I lucky as she said?

Based on this source:
http://www.sterex.com/learning-resources/section6/

To establish the ‘working point', you have to set the Thermolysis (SWD) intensity to 0.4 set the Galvanic intensity to 20 (If you use technique 1).

She was far below this intensity.

Search for Texas electrolysis supply. They sell Hinkel machines. All Hinkel models do blend. Your other option is ebay but Hinkel machines are rare on ebay these days.

Thank you. I did call them a few times, but no answer. Do you know if they ship to Scandianavian countries? And what is a fair price for a Hinkel machine? Is that a machine you would recommend? thank you.

Sid recently TES had some issues with their phones. I 'm pretty sure its resolved now but they werent able to recieve calls on their 800 number for several days. The were asking people to call their local number Outside USA/Local: 281-486-5617. That's the only reason I can think of TES wouldnt answer the phone.If you were having trouble reaching them I suggest trying back on monday.They show several hinkel epilators as available.
Hinkels are no longer made and TES is the only place I know of that might have any as they deal in used epilators.
