After struggling with the home electrolysis (One Touch) for months, I decided to go for it and see a pro. I have to say, I could kick myself for not doing it sooner. She is doing thermolysis on my face. It is so much less traumatic than the home machine. It's moving along much faster as well. I've only gone to two appointments, but so far, so good. I don't think I will ever try to do it myself again. It is just an easier and less painful experience over all. So, for those of you trying to decide whether to do home or professional, I say at least give the pro a consultation/trial before you waste your time with the home machines. (Or maybe it's just that I suck at doing it successfully!)
