I used this twice on my under arms and already fifty percent of the hair is reduced. With the price of laser hair removal being so expensive, this is well Worth the money spent on it!
This device is amazing for laser touchups. I had lasered some parts of me years ago and then I had some stray hairs and light regrowth. This device doesn't work as well on all parts of the body, however it works amazing on underarms, as well as bikini. Every few months I touch up and don't see hair for a long time. I don't think it works as well on legs, where hair tends to be thinner than underarms (at least for me). It's great to have an at-home device to use.
I bought my Silk'n SensEpil machine (home laser hair removal) last March on a group buy deal. I got it half price, or I would never have considered it since it's pretty pricey. But the results began to show after a few treatments and after 3 months (treating every 2 or 3 weeks) the results were amazing.
The machine is a bit awkward to use, but frankly, not as awkward as getting naked with a strange technician at a salon!
The lamp cartridges do need to be replaced and they are pricey too, about $50 full price (I buy mine with my Optimum points at SDM) or a little less if you buy multiples online from the manufacturer. At fist it took a whole cartridge to do one treatment of my whole body. As they hair began to permenantly disappear, I didn't need to treat my entire body anymore and the cartridges last for 2 - 3 treatments.)
After 3 months of use, I have about a 30% permemant results already and the hair that remains is much finer, slower growing, and the hair on my arms is so much lighter in colour and texture that it's practically invisible. I don't even worry about it anymore. I had to take a break over the summer because life got to busy, but I figure another 3 - 4 months will probably finish the job.
By the time I'm all done, I estimate that this whole process will have cost me less than $1,000. That's a considerable savings over going to a salon and I like that I can do this in the privacy of my own home, whenever I have the time.
If you've got fair skin and dark body hair, I highly recommend this product. It takes commitment and perseverence, but it pays off in the end. (And you can find deals on the device and the replacement lamps to make it more affordable.)
