I recently got that One Touch Deluxe Home Electrolysis kit and there are 2 questions I wanted to ask that are not even mentionned in the instruction guide...
First of all, and I know this sounds dumb, but since I have to make sure that no current is sent BEFORE I'm 100% sure that the needle is placed correctly, how am I supposed to moist my fingers without moving?
I mean, I hold the stylet with my right hand, I'm being very carefull not to touch the metal band on the stylet (which is already an unatural way to hold it), I position and hold the needle in place, but then, I have to reach the water with my other hand and touch the metal band with that same hand, without moving, shaking, of pressing too much on the stylet. I think in most cases I'm "forced" to move the stylet a little and the current is not sent properly.
So how do you guys manage to complete the operation without moving the stylet?
Second question :
At this point I have only done the "zone test", but during that session I have already experienced a lot of problems. The major one being that, when pulling out the hair with the tweezer, there's still resistence. Maybe it's because of the problem I just mentioned above (I'm not sending the current in the right place), but it could also be because the power is not high enough, or, I should leave it for more than 15 seconds...
So, when the hair still resists, do you usually increase the intensity or leave it there for a little longer? Which of these 2 alternatives, is least risky for my skin that's already scared because of that test?
I hope someone used to DIY electrolysis will be able to help me!
