I bought this with a slightly skeptical mind-set having previously had salon laser hair removal treatments. I figured it was the price of a couple of sessions of laser hair removal and I could try it to see if it would “top up” my previous laser areas (bikini, armpits, legs). Also, I was reassured by the money back guarantee. So far, I’ve been pretty impressed. It’s obviously not as strong as salon laser, so the downside is you probably need to zap areas a bit more. The plus side is that the skin reaction is milder too. I’ve gone to town with it... doing all those weird hairy bits that other people probably don’t notice, that would cost you hundreds in a salon.... (big toes)!!! It’s even got rid of some stubborn chin hairs that electrolysis couldn’t shift. I’ve only had it for a few weeks, so still need to asses the permanence of hair removal. Also, for people who are new to laser, I have the perfect combination of pale skin, dark hair, so my results may be better than yours.
