I think i have found a DIY cure. - Brit90 - 04-13-2019 04:31 PM

When i was randomly searching on Ebay i came across cheap hyfrecators. This is a machine that basically creates a spark on the end of an electrode as is commonly used in dermatology.

I bought one for about £300 and started using it today.

Already i can tell this is going to be a game changer. I have known for a while that you can use electricity to treat the glands, but that it also costs thousands. Doing it yourself however, fraction of the price.

This is a video that shows the principal of what i am doing.





I will take photos before and after and update you guys on the overall results.

I think some people here tried this method with a doctor.
Waiting to see your before&after, good luck.

At the moment im doing a few tests on my balls to see what the scaring is like. Provided this is ok, i will do one on my dick and photograph the entire healing process.

I can see why this may not have worked from a doctors point of view. They only have a limited time with the patient, perhaps a few hours. What i am thinking of doing it going to take months. You need to spend time gradually hardening the sebum with the electrode, and then removing it with the tweezers. Its not good enough just shock them all, you need to take the pearl out.

Im not sure if anyone reading this has ever tried removing one with just a needle and tweezers before? What you will find i that its very difficult to get the pearl out without really cutting away and causing loads of damage. The thing that excites me about using the Hyfrecator, is that the sebum is brought to the surface with the shock. It seems to just come away at the first attempt with the tweezers.

This is a great post, I wish you the best of luck and will be following this thread closely for results!!
However, won't the gland just produce more sebum after you have removed the pearl?

Can you provide the name of machine you purchased?,and whether there is any pain , using this machine.

Will the gland keep producing sebum? - I dont know. I suspect some will and some wont. You have to remember though these glands develop over years and get bigger and bigger. My plan is to empty them all and some may grow back over time. But i will just treat those myself aswell. Overall i think i can achieve a pretty good near permanent result. We will have to wait and see.

This is the machine i bought.

Does it hurt? Yes it hurts alot. But i think it will hurt less with proper technique and practise. I was probably a bit timid before and i barely made contact with the skin, resulting in painful shocks. What i found was you actually have to apply a bit more pressure so you maintain contact with the skin. Then you pass the electricity into the gland and it heats up and burns away the gland.

Okay dude, I wish you well and will 100% be copying you if successful!

I already tested this out back in 2016, when I undergone a training to become a electrolist.

This method works, but is like chemical peelings not suitable on the long run.

Basically, it hurts to much and is not precisely enough with like you mentioned to much damage on the skin.

This is an example of me testing on one spot. Just shows how the sebum changes colour.

Just a little tip: take pictures from a larger distance and then crop the relevant area. Your camera has no focus on this range.
