I have clareblend ultrablend , how do i make it work as a galvanic machine. I have read through posts here suggesting novice users to start with galvanic so the question.

Another question also is galvanic just as effctive as blend but takes more time? I dont mind more time actually, I just want to kill the hair correctly and learn that.

I started with one touch and i did do the insertions correctly and the hairs did come out without resistence, also i dint have as much scarring but would love to elminate even the tiny scabs that i get.

Do you think insulated probes are better for novoices to try?

Simply disable the high frequency side, then all you will be using is the galvanic side. Adjust the timing and intensity for your needs.

Yes! It is highly effective when used correctly.

Sometimes scabbing can't be avoided. Play with the timing and intensity to try to decrease the scabbing and watch the skin reaction. I do not recommend DIY on the face.

I would use gold personally. The Laurier probe would hold up better than others to the lye it is exposed to over a long period of time.

thanks so much for the answers.
Here are some more questions would really appreciate an input

1)The scabs I got on the face healed quicker in 2 days than the rest like my hand that I tried. So when you recommend not to do on your face is it because it is more visible and if it is permanent then causing more damage?
2)In the one touch when i did an insertion the manual said to wiggle the needle a little like go up and down and also rotate. Should you do that with a stronger galvanic machine as well?
3)What is the depth you need to take the needle into? and what is the best way to regulate so as to have less scarring (more time less intensity?)

I have seen some really bad DIY jobs on the face. It is hard to innvert and insert correctly.

You can wiggle the probe around if you want. Some electrologists do this.

You go as deep as the hair is and that takes practice and skill to know. Rely on depth gauge findings if necessary. I won't explain that in this thread because it can be found by searching past threads.

I like more timing for most situations, but have done 99 % intensity with less time, too, for other situations.
