Absolutely Amazing! -

This product is abolutely worth the money for women with thick dark hair and pale skin! I have used it three times now on my legs and seen at least a 70% reduction in my hair growth. After so many years of struggling with hair removal (shaving left a very obvious shadow of dark spots under the skin, waxing gave me severe ingrown hairs, and chemical depilatories didn't remove hair and badly burned my skin) this product has exceeded every expectation I had!
Here are answers to some of the doubts I had when deciding whether or not to purchase this:
1. It is hardly painful. There is a small pain for a fraction of a second with each burst of light at the higher settings (I'm on the 2nd highest now), but the pain is absolutely nothing compared to waxing! It is very tolerable. And it fades immediately, unlike waxing which would leave my legs sore and sensitive to the slightest touch. Also, at the lowest setting there was no pain at all, but I started feeling something with the higher ones, so watch out as you start cranking it up.
2. Be patient, it does not work instantly. I was surprised to see some hair reduction two weeks after the first use on the lowest setting, but it wasn't until after the second and third sessions that I really started to see drastic results. I have never actually seen hair fall out, I just see that it's not there anymore!
3. Some hair is growing back, but it is much finer. The results I see after 3 sessions are not 100%, but it is such a dramatic difference compared to what I started with that I am totally satisfied. I'm excited to see if after continued use whether it will reduce the growth even further!
I would highly highly recommend this product to any woman who has pale skin and dark hair, and gets very poor results with other hair removal techniques. Even if this doesn't completely eliminate my hair, it has reduced it to a totally manageable level!!
