To answer one of your questions, microflash thermolysis uses one probe, same as the blend method,which is an awesome modality, too. A skilled electrologist can clear a lot of hair and get to a first full clearance much faster with flash or microflash thermolysis. Most clients find they can tolerate microflash better than other methods if the insertions are good. A skilled electrologist can find levels that individual clients can tolerate. So, the hard part really, is finding a good practitioner.
Please do read all you can. You sound like a good researcher and that's the way you need to approach permanent hair removal. Cathy needs relief as soon as possible. A quicker method of electrolysis, like microflash thermolysis, in my view is essential for Cathy if she has a lot of fine dark hair on her face. This method will give her hope, but she stills needs to stick with the plan for 1-1 1/2 years, generally speaking, as electrolysis is a process. Understand all you can about this and success will come.

Thanks Dee, I appreciate all the info you've given me. I will be sure to check into the various methods and hopefully i can get some recommendations about electrologists in the area we will be living in. Microflash sounds like it might work very well for us especially ifthey can clear a fairly large area pretty quickly. I haven't been able to read much on it as most plaxces on Google just advertise their businesses but I'll keep digging.
We've stuck with Laser for over a year now so I think we will be ok as long as we can find the right people to work with and at a good price.
I know waxing her entire body in the US is just not going to be affordable every 2 months and of course the pain of 2-3 days being able to not do very much isn't an option. As it is they just raised the rates here again to about $40 for an entire body wax and the girl who has been doing it for 1.5 years and is the only good one there is leaving.
Thnaks agin for your help
