New hair or anagen hairs have more moisture than the shedding or telogen hairs, so doing galvanic electrolysis does work better with the moisture that is present with those GROWING hairs.

Looking at the photo again I think that this is the One Touch Painless Tweeze, which is not what you want as it has tweezers and not a needle, & will not permanently remove hair.

The one you want looks like this:

& the replacement probes look like this:

You are starting to see why we advise one to get a used pro unit.

for cost, you are better off building, or having one built with the plans made by No-Hair, or getting a used scammy vector device (don't pay the crazy overpriced charge for a new one) and modifying it with an actual probe/needle holder.

then you have something that plugs into a wall, and accepts professional probes in professional sizes.

Thanks - I have heard about this building one thing, but the links to plans are dead. Can you tell me a bit more about this, or post a link? Thank you!
