The One Touch is this consumer device, sold under a couple of names, but literally the same thing.

If you're actually interested in this route and the sort of person who asks "Mind sending me schematics?" (Good on you!), check out forums like HairTell's DIY Electrolysis subforum. Many people who are serious about doing this at home but who cannot afford (even a pre-owned) professional machine will make a couple modifications to the One Touch to make it more practical. (e.g.: At the very least it would be nice to have a proper on/off switch, but changing out the tip so you can use pro-level needles is also popular.) Not the most active site, but still full of good info.

If she's self-conscious about it, one of those pain-free shavers would be a nice gift.

The only permanent hair removal system that works is something like this:

It does work. It really does. But you have to spend a shit-ton of time on it. I figure to completely remove a full beard with this would take 30 hours a week for a year or two. If you're really broke and have a ton of time on your hands, this is perfect. If not, not so much.

This one:

It's kind of hard to get the hang of it at first. I watched a lot of videos. You can't really do your whole face yourself because it's so hard to see in the mirror, but I used it on chest hairs which were a lot more sparse and for touch-ups. It leaves welts sometimes (lasts three days or so) which I didn't get with the professional job.

The only one I know is: Clean + Easy Deluxe Electrolysis Home (For Coarse Hair)

I have one, it works fine though it's a bit cheaply made. The bad reviews are mostly people who don't know how electrolysis works.

There aren't lot of areas of your face you can do yourself though, as the positioning is hard.

u/Toufles · 2 pointsr/TwoXChromosomes

I was going to say Olay Pro X Face brush but when I looked it up it's closer to $20. There are a few cheaper off brand ones though that I think could still be good.

I also use a little travel facial razor like this one on amazon. Mine is literally the as seen on TV one though and I see it for less than $20 in stores that have as seen on TV junk. I got it as a gift but it works surprisingly of those things I probably would not have picked for myself.

Beauty Blender knock offs like the Flower Sponge but I think they are less than $10.

I've never done a favorites party so I am not sure if this is the right type of thing or not.

u/Celladoore · 2 pointsr/skeptic

A quick google search says the size is more in line with a vcr.

As for my advice, for as much as this thing costs, I would keep an eye out on your local Groupon/Living social for laser hair removal deals. I've seen 3 different spas advertise at 90% off packages in the last 8 months or so in the area I live(I paid 99 bucks for three treatments on a small area). If she is willing to be a little patient, she can be certain for sure the professional treatment will work and not be subject to flimsy craftsmanship.

Edit to add the treatment didn't hurt at all for me, but it did smell like burnt popcorn.

I got this clever little piece of mechanical witchcraft here.

my only reservation is that the pain I felt while doing it wasn't consistently high, so I'm not sure I was always doing it right? I have a lot of belly fat, though, so maybe that affected pain somehow? And I always felt some pain, it was just the difference between "huh" and "OH OKAY YEAH IT'S ON."

u/Leagle_Egal · 1 pointr/women

I use this one

I only started using it a couple weeks ago so I can't speak to its longevity, but it is working pretty nicely so far.

u/creesa · 1 pointr/AskWomen

It has a little needle-type thing on the end. You poke that into your skin right where the hair is, and hold it there for a little while. It burns (?) the follicle. It was kinda gross and weird because while holding it there you'd see a bubbling up from the pore. I think it's skin oils coming up. I wouldn't say it hurts, but you definitely feel a slight sting each time. I did it in about a 4x6 area on the inside of my leg above my ankle. The hair there isn't quite as thick as calf hair on the outer side. Not sure if it would work just as well with really thick hair.

Like I said, it works, but is tedious and sorta hard to do. You have to get it right there where the hair is, not just next to it.

This is the one I have. I guess the price has gone up! I used it several years ago.

u/beepduck · 1 pointr/ABDL

You can buy at home electrolysis kits that are similar to what you're describing - I had this one:

But it isn't like tweezers, you have to stick a little pointy thing in each hair follicle to kill it. I didn't find it painful, but it was incredibly time consuming and the results weren't that great. I was able to permanently kill a few follicles before I gave up.

There is no at home, painless, permanent solution.

u/kaypers · 1 pointr/AskWomen

No side effects. I removed the first hairs about 2 months ago & they have not grown back. I'll try to post the link.

u/iyzie · 1 pointr/asktransgender

Yeah, I'm using this. It's a daunting task, and I may give up on the more difficult areas of the face. No problems with skin damage so far though. My motivation is such that stabbing myself in the face with a needle-ish thing 1000s of times is hardly an obstacle, for how much I want the beard gone. My biggest concern is getting good results, and I feel this is the best way to do that, at least given the mediocre hair removal professionals I have access to in my area.

u/Curlyq139 · 1 pointr/PCOS

I used [this] ( one, but I do get pimples and some scabbing and redness after I use it. I probably turn it up too high, so use at your own risk. I only use it on VERY small areas because it is not very easy to use, and it can vary in effectiveness depending on whether or not you inserted the needle thing right. Just some warnings!

Summer has never been my favorite time of the year and forget going to the beach! Stupid hair!

u/doesntakethehighroad · -5 pointsr/pics

What the hell do you call this then?

Secondly, 1 treatment doesn't take care of it. Hair grows in 3 stages and you have to nail the hair in the growth stage multiple times. That requires about 9 treatments over the course of 9 months. Maybe you should actually do some research next time because you don't know jack squat about hair removal.

Also, chill the fuck out.
