I despise shaving and have...um...since I started! So I decided to buy an at home laser hair removal system. I chose the Silk'n SenEpil because:
1. It got great reviews
2. It has a larger head for quicker use
3. You can plug it to the wall for unlimited use (no charging necessary) as opposed to others I looked at that had to be charged and only lasted as long as the charge.
4. Cost! At roughly $500 (+the cost of cartridges), it is so much cheaper than going to a professional (which can cost upwards of $2000-$3000)
5. You can do it in on your own time!
The only drawback: having to buy extra $50 cartridges. A cartridge is good for 750 pulses.
Skin does have to meet criteria: the lighter the batter. NO recent sun exposure!
Hair too: the darker the better
SO I was so excited to receive it! And the first session went easier and quicker than I thought it would. It only took 45 minutes to laser my underarms, arms, and full legs (including bikini).
And pain level: none, although I did start out on the lowest power setting as suggested. Just a warm slightly tingling sensation. On thicker hairs, that sensation was slightly stronger.
I ordered it from Sephora, which is great because they give you all kinds of samples for beauty products!
Results: Can't tell yet. It does take several sessions to see full results. So we shall see. I hope to be done before summer because it is not advised to use this on sun exposed skin do to risk of burns.
I'll keep posting about this amazing little gadget!
