Hi,
I have been reading almost all your post about DYS electrolysis.
And the clear message is dont do it your self(Or get a DYS buddy) I know - I know !
I have thought a long time about buying a machine on ebay, getting the bono book. When looking up those machines I felt not sure if I could handle them, after all it takes a lot to get skilled right.
Now I'm so desperate again (beeing treated with thermol. and laser different body parts) that I want to buy a machine and do it myself. (Let's face it those hairs never will stop growing)If you treat one aerea they'll pop up some place else.
Most of those fancy blend machines are out of my budget, but I came across the Uniprobe light (thermol. only)$350 at electric spa.
Is this unit useful for a starter?
Thanks

Daisy75;
The Uniprobe Light does Slow thermolysis. For what it was designed for it should be ok. Before purchasing a unit however, you should get whatever electrolysis books you can and study them. Thermolysis does require accurate insertions. You also must be very careful on the depth of the insertions. With this type of unit, you are trying to Coagulate the blood that feeds the papilla at the bottom of the follicule. Poor insertions will only result in damaging your skin. You do need to know what you are doing when it comes to using either Thermolysis or Flash.
Galvanic or Blend is easier for someone just starting out, as the insertions do not need to be as accurate, and insulated probes really are not needed, but can be used if desired. Insulated probes serve to help protect the surface of the skin from damage. But all of this can be learned by studying electrolysis books.
I have stated previously that the uniprobe light could be combined with a do it yourself galvanic unit to create a blend unit. Besides the galvanic unit you would just need a capacitor and inductor in order to combine the two currents. The capacitor would go on the the output of the uniprobe and the inductor at the output of the galvanic unit with the opposite ends of each device connected together and also joined to the probe cable.
The inductor keeps the RF out of the galvanic unit and the Capacitor keeps the DC from the galvanic unit from getting into the Uniprobe light.
For blend you do not require a very strong Rf level, as you only want enough to warm up the Lye being produced. I would first of all however recommend that one study the different modalities of electrolysis and after doing that, decide what kind of epilator you want to get.
