The best answer to professional newbie electrologists or do-it-yourselfers about settings is, start low and work it up until the hair releases ...... AND the skin looks fine. I get those questions, too, and they cannot be answered precisely because of so many variables. Using a size 2 Gold probe is different than using a size 6 Gold probe. Insertions must be perfect, especially so when doing thermolysis. If insertions are not perfect, the tendency is to turn up the energy level, which is not good.
Hairtell is not a place to educate consumers about the art and skill of doing electrolysis, though we do say general things that can be helpful.
