It happened with laser hair removal in the late 90's and early 2000s. Manufacturers perpetrated falsities that were unfortunately passed on to consumers by machine owners. It did come back to bite them.

Fact is, certain methods hurt less at The real winner is always the straight-shooter; a person who just tells the facts, plain-and-simple.


Hairtell exists for discussions like this. We want the consumer to know the truth about anything to do with hair removal. We don't lie to our clients because it cheapens what we do and causes mistrust. Ultimately, it creates more anxiety for the consumer.

I haven't done a search to verify that Dectro has "pain-free" written in their ads or otherwise.

A side-note to this little discussion. I wrote a book called "The Blend Method," and lots of people assume that I'm therefore an enemy of all the other methods.

I didn't write the book because I'm some enemy ... I wrote the book because that's what I know fairly well! (I was a thermolysis operator for 3-years before I started blending.) If I had the gumption, I should write follow-up books: "Thermolysis" and "Multiple-Needle." Who knows, since I only have one eye these days, I might just do it. (Maybe "Pirate Electrolysis?")

I had a lovely call from a sweet woman in New Jersey yesterday and she hesitated to ask questions about my opinion on multiple-needle. She assumed I would be negative or an enemy. She quickly learned I'm NOT! How could I possibly be an enemy of any technology? We had a long conversation and it was fun. It's always interesting to talk to Easterners ... they talk so differently and so FAST!

In these two links (one in English, the other on French) Dectro say officially that other epilator machine (non Apilus) are painful but Apilus machine is PAINFREE.

The Dectro quote:

"With Apilus, we will be able to make the French market evolve towards the new 27 MHz standard, which is faster, more efficient and above all, pain-free,"

- said Dectro Export Manager Dario Zujo.

My biggest beef with the dectro line, is, the probeholders. It's a strait up money grab.They wont fix a known problem because they sell too many of them and make too much from them.I've had zero issues with the xcell, save the now drawerful of dead probeholders I now have.The last time I called I asked for a probeholder and the Dectro rep inquired as to why I was getting just one?

That they push anogen only theory in their school is just stupid ( which they did to me too) , and I had to politely excuse myself from disclosing my views.
