If you think we are sarcastic and Fiesty
, please understand where it comes from. Many people here have spent money they could not afford to lose on a boulevard of broken dreams that leaves them wiser, though poorer for the experience.
We have had machines sold for $5,000 - $10,000 that were simple galvanic only units that advised that permanent hair removal could be achieved with rubbing a gel on the skin, and then applying galvanic current to the surface skin via a moistened cotton swab (that's right, a Q-tip) and then pray for permanent hair removal as you pluck your hairs out after the so-called treatments. These overpriced units were being sold for those prices during a time when real electrolysis machines were still $500 to $2500 brand new from the manufacturer. (I think those scam devices are why the current crop of machines charge as much as $10,000 today.
There are products that are batteries connected to an oversized chunk of metal that is too large to do an easy insertion and costs $100 to purchase, but represents only about $5.00 worth of product, including labor.
Lastly, there is "Epil-Stop" which purported to be a dipiliatory cream, with a spray "inhibotor" that would eventually lead to no hair growing in the treated area... Hmmm, sounds familiar... Anyway, many people who used this product had to include a trip to the emergency room for chemical burns into their costs for trying that product, as it was lousy at removing hair, but it did do lots of damage to their skin.
So if we seem to be hostile in or skepticism here, just compare us to the girl who is on a date, and hears one more line that includes "it's good for your skin", "if you do it standing up", "trust me" or any number of other things that lead to bad outcomes previously.
You can't blame a girl, really. After all, it is hard to tell the difference between a decent guy and a jerk when they are both calling out "Hey, baby. Yo, baby" at you.
Now to lighten the mood, (but on the subject that I just brought up) take a little time out to watch and listen to Fiest
, just in case you missed the previous link.
