The area is extremely susceptible to overtreatment. Be careful, please. Most follicles have been treated in telogen phase. With half of that e.l would have been enough to just insert the needle a little less deep.

Who did you talk to at Dectro? They should be able to answer your question about levels provided being "FAR OUTSIDE THE REALM OF USEFULNESS". I listed a name and a phone number on another thread, but will reiterate it here: you can call Jean-Louis at 1-888-332-8763. It is toll-free.

You didn't say what program you were in or your probe size. Those levels are high. I hope your skin heals well.

I due to get my Apilus Platinum Pure in the next couple of days, needless to say can't wait. Just a question about probes, are you best to use insulated needles with this unit??

Yes, insulated probes are recommended. I use insulated and gold and
have not had any problems.

You will once you learn the language of Apilus. Stick with one modality at first and then gradually spread your wings. Where did you purchase your Platinum?

Well, my next piece of advice was to get training or ask questions from the distributer where you purchased it and it sounds like you don't need that advice at all. Good move on your part! We'll try to help out as best we can, but do take advantage of the asking the people who will train you and share what you find out here on hairtell, if you want. What better way to serve our fellow human beings by re-training and re-learning on some of the best epilators in the world. People are desperate to find great electrologists who can actually change their lives for the better.

two piece or one piece probes... for the last few years i have used two piece needles. however i have been advised to use ballet probes(one piece) with the apilus platinum pure. find them a bit more challenging as they seem so big and stiff, the probes!!!! i prefer the two piece, but will use the ballet if deemed better, what do the apilus pro's think? also when i was getting trained on apilus i felt the hair was getting pulled a little, is this normal. i always make sure the hair is loose before i remove. newbie to apilus.

Probes are indeed a personal choice. We have many great choices at our disposal. Aaahh, yes, I did get the big and stiff part silly mhawkes - you were referring to probes, indeed, teehee!

I use ballet because I like the stiffness and sturdiness and the bigger size 6 er's (hehe) for the really coarse hair structures. Depending on some things in the beginning clearance, some hairs can offer some resistance, but do try to get the hairs to slide out. If I feel a little traction, I will go back in the empty follicle, with the hair out of the way, and give it another burst of energy.

I just like the way a ballet glides into a follicle, but I have not tried Sterex or other brands recently.
