The LightSheer Diode Laser System offers high powers and both short and very long pulses to safely and effectively treat almost all skin types and hair color. This laser has the ability to permanently reduce hair growth. The ChillTip handpiece provides the ultimate in epidermal contact cooling and compression, increasing penetration of laser energy to the base of the follicle. Pigment in the follicles absorb the light. That destroys the hair. Lasers can selectively target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

Remington Quartz- will take longer to see the same results as the tria, but has the larger interface so treating larger areas will be easier and I don’t have to worry about running out of pulses bc the cartridge can be replaced. BUT, I’ve read in a lot of sites that touch ups would be needed about every 6 months (some people have said their hair grew back after 2 years of stopping treatments) – if this is the case then the tria would still be better bc I would love to pretty much forget about my hair after a year or so of treatments.
Just like Cleopatra was a trendsetter in her time, so too was Queen Elizabeth 1 during the Middle Ages. She set the precedence for hair removal amongst women, who followed her lead by removing it from their faces, but not their bodies. The fashion of this era was to remove eyebrows and hair from the forehead (to make it appear larger), which women did by using walnut oil, or bandages soaked in amonia (which they got from their feline pets) and vinegar.

I have always shaved my pubes on a regular basis (once a week, when they starting to get a bit stubbly). I had tried Veet in the past, and whilst it made an excellent job of it, the burning pain afterward was excruciating for quite a few hours. After that, I went back to the good old fashioned Bic Orange (Sensitive) 1. However, I always remembered the extra smoothness that the Veet gave, so I started considering if the benefits might warrant the pain, so I did a bit more research, and found that quite a few independent reviews had found the same thing with Veet, but recommended Nair. I thought it was probably the same thing, but decided to go for it, and bought some Nair with Cotton Oil.
Thank you! I did it a 2nd time today and it’s much smoother. I am taking my time– about 30 minutes and I keep going over same areas. I think the really small ones aren’t getting removed but I guess that’s normal? My epilator says hairs as small as 0.3mm. Anyway, the first time with the bigger hairs definitely had the pulling sensation but what I meant is that it wasn’t painful enough to deter me from using the epilator. I had tried years ago (in the 90s) and found it too painful for me. Thanks so much!
The bikini area is by far one of the most popular regions to wax. Shaving can sometimes make the hair grow back thicker and denser, while depilatory creams can irritate the sensitive area or ineffectively remove the coarse hair. Bikini and bare-it-all Brazilian waxing is best left to experienced professionals because of the increased risk of infection after a waxing procedure and the potential risk of skin tearing with inadequate positioning and pulls. This region of the body is moist and warm – the perfect combination for a bacterial breeding ground. Combine this environment with freshly opened follicles after waxing and you have hundreds of portholes for infection. Bikini waxing is a popular summertime service, but is actually best started during the winter and maintained throughout the year for the best results. A cream strip wax is suitable for the pubic region and thighs, while a cream hard wax is best for around the genitals because hard wax is gentler and the added titanium helps protect the skin. Practicing proper sanitation and cleanliness, and advising the client of post-waxing precautions is a must-do for all service providers.

First of all, using them can be described as quite the opposite from ‘efficient’. If you want to spend half a day rubbing in circular movements on one part of your leg to remove only a remote amount of hair, then good for you, I respect your dedication to getting partly smooth limbs. But I would personally prefer to hop in the shower and have a two minute shave and deal with the odd bump. It might be less eco-friendly, but at least I’ll have time for lunch.

Ongoing Costs:  Finally, there are several systems on the market that have a low initial setup price, but they prove to be more costly to operate in the long-run because they require replacement cartridges every few months.  Depending on how often you plan to use the machine and how expensive the replacement cartridges are, you might be better off paying a little bit more upfront for a cartridge-free kit.

You’ll also want to minimize your sun exposure after each laser hair removal, especially during peak daylight hours. Increased sun sensitivity from the procedure puts you at risk of sunburn. Make sure you wear sunscreen every day. The Mayo Clinic also recommends staying out of direct sunlight for six weeks before laser hair removal to prevent pigmentation disruptions on tanned skin.
As with your bikini line, the skin under your arms is thin and sensitive, making shaving your best option. Be sure to use a hydrating shave gel like eos Ultra Moisturizing Lavender Shave Cream ($4, target.com) and shave in multiple directions. That's because hair under your arms grows in a whirled pattern, meaning the hair is pointing in all directions, Dr. Bowe says. So in order to get a close shave, swipe your razor up and down and corner to corner to make sure you snag every last hair.

Popular razor brand Gillette has come out with its own IPL laser hair removal device along with Braun and it comes as no surprise that it’s a great product. The SensoAdapt sensors on this device check your skin tone a staggering 80 times per second to adjust the intensity level of its flashes. Its glide mode also helps your treat large areas like your arm or leg within just 8 minutes.
Hi Susan, great question and I would be glad to help. If you have both light hairs and dark hairs, although the Tanda machine is not the best machine when it comes to effectiveness, the Tanda machine > Tanda Me Smooth, does have the ability to treat both lighter and darker hairs so you don’t need two machines. It’s personal preference though because my cousin is the same as you but she prefers to stick with the Tria. Because you mentioned you can get a pretty dark tan, just be careful with your tan, ensure no tanning before and after treatments! Gabby

Strictly speaking, this is a sugar wax, not a cream. However, its results are so good, we had to put it on this list. Sugar wax is far easier to use than traditional wax, so you don’t need to be a salon employee to use it effectively. Despite the “cold” part of this cold wax, it requires no heating, which means you can use it as soon as you get it. The kit provides both strips and spatulas for the low price of $9. Thinking about those old waxing experiences, we worried about pain at first, but the process is comfortable, aided by the soothing chamomile extract.
While it's typically a pain-free hair removal method, cutting the hair down at skin level can lead to ingrowns, particularly for those with naturally curly hair. To fight back, use a gentle exfoliant on the area in the days after shaving to keep any wayward dead skin cells from snagging on new hair growth. As for those middle school rumors you used to hear about shaving making your hair grow in thicker? A total myth, according to Zeichner. "You're just cutting a hair on a blunt angle, so as it continues to grow, it looks thick and dark."
How much is each type of hair removal likely to cost? – When compared to electrolysis, laser hair removal is it the more expensive of the two. Depending on the size of the area that you want to remove the hair from, you can find that your visit can cost between $200 and $900. As the areas of the face where you are likely to want to remove hair from our only very small, you will probably find that facial hair removal is the cheapest kind that you can find. Electrolysis will cost around $45 for a 30-minute session. This would be for a smaller area, for example, the eyebrow on the face.
It’s entirely possible to burn yourself using liquid wax that has been heated for too long. Before applying a large amount of wax on your skin, test the temperature on a very small area. Even better, judge by appearance, if the wax is very watery or runny it’s likely way too hot. As you gain experience you’ll learn to tell when the wax is the right temperature by how viscous it is. It’s important to read the instructions, follow the microwave heating times and be careful when moving heated wax. Most waxes only need to be gently warmed, not heated like hot lava.
“I have just returned from a dermatology appointment with my doctor, and was yet again complimented on my reconstruction. I don’t know if I have communicated this, but every MD, PA, tech, etc, I see wants to know who did my reconstruction. I mean everyone! Honestly, I have come to expect the compliment, ha! My doctor even said, “Believe me, I’ve seen a lot of reconstruction, and this is up there with the best.”…Go to all

Exfoliation brushes – there are two brushes which you can use for exfoliation. The gentle exfoliation is great for use on more sensitive areas of your body, even places where you do not intend to epilate, such as your chest. On the other hand, the deep body exfoliation brush can be used before and in between epilation sessions to remove dead skin cells and reduce and prevent ingrown hairs. This deep exfoliation brush head is 6 times more effective than just using a manual scrub for the same job.


Meant for either wet or dry skin, this interchangeable tool comes with a shaver head, trimmer cap, massage head and tweezing cap. Almost 1,000 reviewers on Amazon rave about the switchable heads and swear by their hair-removing prowess. Crowd-sourced tip: One particular user recommends buying witch hazel to accompany the device, since it’s pretty powerful and can leave skin red or irritated if left untreated.

I discovered my passion for research when studying for my degree in Medical Imaging. Once graduated, I worked as a diagnostic radiographer and as a member of the hospital’s gastrointestinal imaging research team. I love learning about new technologies, particularly in the health and beauty field, and enjoy writing about how they can benefit both our every day and long-term health and well-being.
Forget those lightweight plastic razors Ladies! Sometimes the best razor is a safety razor. The beautifully crafted & weighted designs with chrome plating last you a lifetime. You know, a women’s (sssh, don't let those boys know) razor that’s designed in such a way to slickly glide down your legs, or, anywhere, leaving you smoothly bare "n" sexy there...
We all know that keeping our bodies hairless in all the right places isn’t always smooth sailing—all hair removal methods, whether it’s waxing, shaving, or laser, have the potential for issues like nicks, bumps, ingrown hairs, and… general discomfort. Let’s take a cursory look at the multitude of removal options, and with them, the different levels of pain, commitment, expense, convenience, and perhaps most importantly, longevity.
Sick and tired of the cuts, ingrown hairs, and red bumps after shaving but don’t want the hassle or pain of waxing? A hair removal cream is just what you need. Also known as depilatory creams, these powerful products can effectively remove unwanted hair quickly and easily. The creams work by using active ingredients to break down the structure of your hair so that the strands can easily be wiped away. Of course, as with any grooming product, picking the right formula is essential to achieving excellent results. As such, we’ve created this guide to the best hair removal creams for men so you can have smooth, fuzz-free skin without any fuss.
Hair removal lasers have been in use since 1997 and have been approved for "permanent hair reduction" in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).[7][8] Under the FDA's definition, "permanent" hair reduction is the long-term, stable reduction in the number of hairs regrowing after a treatment regime. Indeed, many patients experience complete regrowth of hair on their treated areas in the years following their last treatment. This means that although laser treatments with these devices will permanently reduce the total number of body hairs, they will not result in a permanent removal of all hair.[9]
Hi Erika. I understand your frustration, present technologies work on a difference in skin color and hair color. So if both are either dark (like in your situation) or very light, the technology does not work. That is pure physics, has nothing to do with discrimination. I hope this helps, although it does not solve your wish to find something that works for you as well. The technology is getting better and better, maybe in the future it works for dark/dark as well as light/light skin/hair color.

We recruited Glamour staffers to try all the new and proven body-hair-removal devices on the market, and out of the many options, we surfaced with six all-star options that didn't disappoint. Across the board, they hover around $100 or less. But given that a year's worth of cheap razors and shaving cream runs $140 by most estimates, and that these options last forever, they just might sell you on the investment. Ahead, our editors' unfiltered reviews.
Ultimately, the effectiveness of a hair removal product varies. One product may work fantastically for one person while being ineffective on another. Different formulas and ingredients can react differently to your hair and skin. When choosing the right hair removal cream, you should take the ingredients into consideration. Not only that, but you should try different brands until you find one that is effective on your skin.

Thanks for leaving a comment. In regards to the best machine, it’s hard for me to determine really how dark your skin is. The best way to give you an idea is to tell you that I use the Tria 4X laser and I have olive skin. I come from Italian background so I have the Mediterranean olive skin. I get very dark naturally in summer as I like to tan but I use the machine when my tan has faded down as to increase the effectiveness, especially on the areas of my body that get tanned. Other areas of my body that are lighter such as bikini and underarms, I do all the time just fine. The only thing is that the darker your skin is, the less effective the Tria 4X becomes. If you really are on the darker side, I would suggest the Tanda Me machine (the latest machine here) which can be used on darker skin tones.
First, I tried tackling it with at-home waxing kits (ouch) and DIY depilatory creams, which stung and stunk (literally). I tried “professional” waxing at my local nail salon (whoops), which left my skin red and bumpy. Sure, some of these hair removal methods helped get rid of the hair but most had crappy side effects that made me debate if leaving the hair was the better option. When I moved to New York and became a beauty editor, I was excited to try all of the new options available. I gave threading a whirl, arguably the most painful method in my opinion.
Your welcome, I would be glad to help you out. It’s often difficult for people to determine if laser hair removal will work on them, the most important thing I tell everyone that asks me is that these days, it’s not the hair color or skin color that is so important, it is the color DIFFERENCE between the hair and skin. So if you have pale skin and even light brown hair color you will be fine with most machines. If you have pale skin AND blonde hair then the Tanda me machine is probably your best best to get results, apart from that, the machines as per my rankings are recommended for best performance for any other skin combination. Gabby
If you have sensitive skin and want to play it safe, this cream was developed for you. The removal cream is designed to be gentle and the balm will quell any irritation that remains. Infused with papaya enzymes, the balm not only soothes, but slows the growth rate of new facial hair. Having to use it less often saves you time and money. With two products in one box for under $7, this is a great deal. This cream doesn’t stink at all. In fact, it’s about as odorless as they come. It’s nice to have a cream that won’t irritate your nose or your skin!
Rub the abrasive side of the sandpaper gently on facial skin to remove hair. Working on one spot at a time, gently rub the skin with the sandpaper in a clockwise motion three times. Then change directions and gently rub the skin in a counter-clockwise motion three times. This process may need to be repeated several times to successfully remove hair.
My sister got one of these shavers for Christmas and after first use she said she liked it. I finally decided to buy one though I already had a Panasonic trimmer I'd been using at least 3 years. I like to try new things. Boy, was I disappointed in this Flawless trimmer from the start. It was hard getting the trimmer to give a close trim on my chin. Then the next day there was so much stubble that I can't seem to get rid if it. A week later and I'm still trying to get rid of the stubble. I have gone back to using my Panasonic. I've never had to oil it and only removed the blade once for cleaning. Usually I just wipe my finger across it and it removes any hairs on it. It has a total of three heads but I only use the longer one even around my eyes. The battery last for months and I use it every 2-3 days. I've used it on my underarms and legs and it works great. The Flawless when used on my legs had a lot of hair in the trap. It seems to work well on long hair even though it recommends to use on hair under 1/4 inch. I plan to go back to my Panasonic as new doesn't always mean better. Maybe in a week I will have a chin without stubble. Oh, and i asked my sister about how she liked it now and she said she couldn't stand the stubble either. How can you kiss a guy if you are the one with the stubble. Ugh!

Full disclosure: Given the picture quality of my Android and the atrocious lighting in my bathroom, it’s hard for you to see my hair before and after. I primarily targeted my upper lip area, where I get peach fuzz and medium brown hairs. I also used it for spots on my chin, below my lips, and some hairy moles (so fun). The great thing about this product is that you don’t need to grow your hair out, you can use it every day for any kind of touch-ups.
Thermolysis – Thermolysis treatments are performed by sending radio energy rather than an electrical charge along the hair that will break down the hair in the follicle using a heat reaction. By warming up the hair sufficiently. It is one of the faster methods of electrolysis. The high frequency of the radio waves causes the hair in the follicle to vibrate and this subsequently heats up the hair in the root of the follicle. This damages the cells in the follicle so that more hair will not grow.
This type of hair removal at a clinic is incredibly pricey and especially so, when you have stubborn hair follicles. You could find yourself having to go for several expensive sessions that will empty out your savings and try your patience. When you buy a machine to use at home, you only have to make an initial payment, and at times cartridge or battery replacements, so in the end, it is much more affordable than clinic sessions. For example, a quality hair removal machine can be anywhere between $250 to $700, whereas sessions can be offered at around $250 a session for only one area and that isn't counting touch-up sessions. As you can see, you could be saving yourself thousands of dollars and you don't even have to leave your house to get the same results.

The primary principle behind laser hair removal is selective photothermolysis (SPTL), the matching of a specific wavelength of light and pulse duration to obtain optimal effect on a targeted tissue with minimal effect on surrounding tissue. Lasers can cause localized damage by selectively heating dark target matter, melanin, thereby heating up the basal stem cells in the follicle which causes hair growth, the follicle, while not heating the rest of the skin. Light is absorbed by dark objects but reflected by light objects and water, so laser energy can be absorbed by dark material in the hair or skin, with much more speed and intensity than just the skin without any dark adult hair or melanin.
Like the Sally Hansen, this cream tends to burn those with sensitive skin.  And we cannot recommend leaving it on for more than 10 minutes, because it will burn pretty much anyone after that. Another, albeit less serious downside to this product is the smell. “New improved scent” be darned, we still think it stinks. The price is a bit high at $18, but you’ll get four bottles in the package, which is a fine deal. Though not for those with sensitive skin, this is good stuff for getting rid of coarse hair.
How many hours does it take? You must work out one hair at a time with that little tip and excuse me, but this is a VERY BORING proccess to do. It may take ages to get all my body worked out with these machine and that little tip, i have A LOT of hair on my body and let me tell you it’s NOT FUNNY having all that hair, i simply HATE IT, and i am trying to find a way that works to get rid of this permanently!

Where can you use it? It's made for beard hair but you can use it just about anywhere on your body. Yes, anywhere. Now, before you grab a tube of this hair removal cream and begin slathering it all over your genitals, please remember to do a patch test. While it is rather gentle, that part of your body is remarkably sensitive. Just imagine the consequences. 
If you still want to go with a razor, Dr. Fromowitz suggests you use Gillette Mach 3 disposables ($14, Buy It Here) . One note: Don't reuse a razor on your back, per risk of infection. Just treat the whole procedure the same as shaving your face: warm water first to relax the pores and hair. Shave, rinse with cold water to close the pores, and then apply a disinfecting aftershave to cleanse and nourish the skin.
Also, doing one procedure and then the other isn’t a good idea. For example, getting electrolysis done after laser hair removal disrupts the effects of the first procedure. Do your homework ahead of time and talk to your dermatologist about the best option. If you decide to switch hair removal procedures, you may need to wait several months before beginning.

Board-certified dermatologist Jessica Weiser, M.D., who I eventually approached, is also dubious about the at-home models. “I advise caution because they’re supposed to be much less intense than in office lasers but in the wrong hands you can probably do some serious damage if you’re double- or- triple pulsing areas that you shouldn’t be,” she tells me. “Typically people at home tend to be aggressive with themselves because they think that they can get a faster, better result without realizing potential consequences.”

I'm recovering from a total hip replacement and am not able to bend past my waist right now. My legs were getting quite hairy and I didn't feel comfortable asking my husband or son to shave my legs for me. I found this product on the Walmart website and thought I would give it a try . I applied it with my long handled sponge and I couldn't be happier with the results! I put it on, waited five minutes and wiped it off . Wow, nice smooth, hairless legs !! The odor was not offensive at all. I'm thinking about continuing to use this even when I'm able to shave again. Great product ! Would definiately recommend.
Waxing is a favorite method for ridding facial hair for up to six weeks using a resin-wax. Waxing service is found in salons and spas everywhere, and a wide variety of home kits are sold. Waxing is exfoliating and can cause extreme redness, scabs, or burns if you’re already using powerful exfoliators on your face like salicylic acid, alpha-hydroxy acid, or enzymes (read more about precautions and warnings). Waxing lasts about four weeks. More »

Each culture of human society has developed social norms relating to the presence or absence of body hair, which has changed from one time to another. Different standards can apply to females and males. People whose hair falls outside a culture's aesthetic standards may experience real or perceived social acceptance problems. For example, for women in several societies, exposure in public of body hair other than head hair, eyelashes and eyebrows is generally considered to be unaesthetic, unattractive and embarrassing.[3] In Middle Eastern societies, removal of the female body hair has been considered proper hygiene, necessitated by local customs, for many centuries.[4][5]

Excellent, you have the perfect skin color! Light/biege skin with dark hair means that you can choose any machine you want according to your budget. The higher priced machines means they are newer and more effective (i.e you will see results ALOT quicker) and more permanent results. The top picks are Tria and Remington as above. I am from Australia so if you want the Tria shipped to you in Australia, let me know as shipping to Australia is not ‘default’. I can help you out through Australia Post – let me know!
Oh I am so sorry, thanks for sending through the message again. Your original message must have got deleted along with spam that I receive everyday. To answer your questions, I am pretty much hairless in areas of my body where I have used the home hair removal machines. I am still doing top up treatments to ensure the hair doesn’t grow back but these are not very often. I only shave the areas of my body now that I am doing treatments for right now. Anyway, I wish you the very best Regards Gabby
To start, I'm a 19 year old female and I've been shaving since I was about 13. Every single time I've shaved my legs & arms & armpits & other areas... get super itchy and irritated! (I'm super Syrian and have black hair so shaving is a necessity unless I want to look like a gorilla). For the past year or so I've given up on shaving bc of the extreme irritation, I've tried everything to help, so I've only shaved when I plan on wearing a short sleeved shirt or shorts/a skirt. Nair has saved my life! Post usage I'm silkier and smoother than I ever was shaving & it lasts at least 2 days, when normally I'd get stubble the next day, also WAY less irritation, I just lather myself in coconut oil afterwards and voila! perfection! My directions for use: just lather that stuff all over your legs and arms like shaving cream, leave on for about 5 minutes, it burns a little bit but it's not unbearable or painful & then shower it off using a washcloth! after shower. lather yourself up in coconut oil & harass your boyfriend to feel your silky as eff legs. Would definitely suggest to all my fellow gorillas out there! Also I do not know how much nair normally costs but I feel like this is way cheaper than female razors (c'mon 20 something bucks for a couple of cheap razors? no thanks). so this is a bangin' deal in my opinion, especially when it comes in 3 bottles.
Pros: I thought the razors were amazing quality, each head has six diamond-coated steel blades, plus one styling bikini blade built into the back of the cartridge. Not only is the subscription service a more 'environmentally-friendly' approach to the traditional multi-packs of plastic disposable razors, but you also never have to suffer the annoyance of a dull, rusty razor.

DO NOT wax, epilate or otherwise undergo any other hair removal treatment that removes the hair at the roots while undergoing laser treatment: Your hair roots need to be present for laser energy to be absorbed and hit the hair follicles (the whole aim is to destroy the hair follicles). If the entire hair shaft is empty, then laser treatment simply does not work. This is a major reason why so many people that attempt DIY laser hair removal fail! Shaving is perfectly OK as the hair roots are left intact. In fact, what you should do is just to shave and clean the area before laser treatment.


A good set of tweezers or another clamping and pulling tool is a necessity for plucking. Most of these tools are very affordable. Get one that allows you to grab hairs with precision, so that you don’t accidentally remove hairs you don’t want to. It’s probably a good idea to get a cleansing solution as well, to help you wash your tool after you use it. No matter what you get, this method is probably the most affordable in the long run, if you can endure the process every once in a while!
I’m looking for an epilator mostly for my legs and hands (armpits or bikini too painful for me). I used to have an old Philips Satinelle model (cannot remember the name but very basic) that often breaks hair and grips the skin. Thus I wonder about new editions of wet and dry and new series of Braun that claims to have 40% wider epilation head* (Covers more skin with each stroke for faster epilation.) – Silk Epil 9. Or another option that sounds good is Silk-épil 7 Dual Epilator that has Venus Gillete Technology. Any idea which is better? i don’t need lots of additions as I don’t use the shavers or trimmers much. Thank you!
Okay so i have struggled for many years to permanently remove hair in various regions of my body. I suffer from hirtuism which is basically hair EVERYWHERE which is very uncomfortable and embarrasing. After going through bottles of nair and shaving cream I have finally decided to seek a more permanent result for my stomach, chest, back, and possibly face region. I want to get the most bang for my buck and i was wondering which of these products you recommend for my personal needs so i can finally say goodbye to these troublesome follicles. I have a fairly pale skin tone with brown hair but the hair is fairly thin so i won’t need anything too heavy duty.But i want a product that won’t irritate the skin and can be used on all parts of the body including the face. I would also like to spend the least amount of money possible while recieving permanent results. Please help!!

Hello, I am looking for a hair removal machine that can give me permanent results, I have a friend who uses the Philips Lumea machine, and she is so far happy with the results, my question would be why would the Tria be better than the Philips Lumea? I’ve read so many great reviews of it on many websites and on youtube, but when I look at ranks of the best hair removal machine for home I seem to find the Tria in most of them and not the Philips Lumea, I am from switzerland and to find the Tria would be more expensive than the Philips because of shipping costs, so I wanna know if its worth it or are both machines good, I am medium skin colour and dark black hair.

A topical cream called Vaniqa® (eflornithine 13.9%) was recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the removal of facial hair in women. This cream works by inhibiting an enzyme that is important for normal hair growth, but must be prescribed by a physician and used on a continuous basis. Studies show that when the cream is discontinued, the hair returns to pretreatment levels after about 8 weeks.
"With epilation, it takes a little longer for a new hair to grow out and that hair is much finer," explains Zeichner. "Epilation may be painful as the hairs are pulled out of the skin from the root. Shaving isn’t painful, but can lead to skin irritation and razor burn." I consider myself someone with a relatively high tolerance for pain, but I found it pretty uncomfortable. According to Zeichner, the first couple times you use an epilator, it's not uncommon to experience some redness and tenderness. And even though your skin is less likely to become irritated, epiliation can still lead to ingrown hairs like when you wax, so be sure to regularly exfoliate the area with glycolic pads, like these from M-61.
The Silk-épil 7 epilator is efficient, yet extra gentle. Because it’s watertight, you can use it in the bath or shower. As with all epilators, it’s more painful at first, but you’ll have virtually painless epilation with regular use. The high frequency massage system provides extra comfort through pulsating active vibrations that stimulate your skin while you epilate. With 40 close-grip tweezers, this epilator efficiently removes even the shortest hairs as small as a grain of sand. It provides smoothness that lasts for weeks. A shaver head and trimmer cap are included to convert your epilator into a full-fledged electric shaver for depilation. The pivoting head follows every contour of your body for better skin contact and even gentler performance. A SmartLight reveals even the finest hair for extra-thorough hair removal. This epilator is not just for legs. You also get different attachments that are designed for use on underarms, arms, face, and bikini area. This epilator will work even more efficiently if you regularly exfoliate. An exfoliating treatment, along with an exfoliating brush are great solutions. Sugar or salt scrubs also work exfoliating wonders.
If you're like me and are blissfully unaware of what a epilator is, you're in for a painful surprise. It's essentially a bunch of mechanized tweezers that go to town on your hairy body. If you're also like me and willing to push through the pain for the promise of a hair free life, this product is fantastic. It removes hair extremely well and fairly quickly and it can get much shorter hairs than waxing ever could, but waxing was also far less painful for me. Be warned though you might start questioning the futility of your existence about halfway through the process.
Thanks for your feedback I haven’t actually heard of the Soprano XLi before, sorry. Lasers/IPL’s in salons/hair removal clinics can tend to have more of a range of lasers and also tend to have different technology than the home based machines to make it more safe for people to use at home. I would need to read up on the Soprano Xli fully but what I’ve read so far is that it’s a diode laser which I guess is the same laser used in the Tria 4x laser. The only thing is that the Tria 4X Laser, although it is the most effective laser hair removal machine, as soon as the color of your skin get’s too dark, it gets less effective. Not quite sure how dark your indian brown skin is, I’m Italian and I have the olive brown skin tone and I use it just fine and I have black hair too. The Tria 4X Laser is fine to use on your entire body including your face also. Please don’t rely on me though because, I don’t know fully about the Soprano system as it’s not a highly used one from what I am aware but from what I’ve read, this is what I understand. Not quite sure which Philips you are referring to as they are both called the Lumea (the SC1981/50 or the SC2008/11?) Anyway, my opinion on Philips hair removal machine is that I don’t mind Philips at all, I used them a while back and then they started getting overtaken by Tria for the last couple of years but it looks like they are coming back with some pretty good machines these days. Anyway, hope all this helps you decide, good luck Gabby
Although most machines struggle with penetrating lighter colored hair, this machine really has difficulty on blonde (see Tanda Me below for blonde and light hair), white or light hair. I found personally, that it does eventually produce results but the results took longer to come (especially in comparison to the first two machines above). I started seeing a noticeable difference with the Silk’n Flash & Go after about 6 treatments. Look, at the end of the day, the machine does work and is a safe home hair removal machine, just don’t expect the results to be as quick as the first few machines. As a plus, if your strapped for cash, its an excellent option as the machine is less costly upfront and I even think the cartridges may be cheaper aswell (might have to check this based on current prices but I have a feeling they are). It’s also FDA cleared but you can read more of my personal experiences and review on Silk’n SN-008 Flash & Go here.
Leave the cream on for the amount of time recommended in the directions. This can be anywhere between three to ten minutes, though the time rarely exceeds ten minutes. Most directions recommend checking a small area about halfway through the process to see if hair comes off.[24] The shorter the amount of time the depilatory cream is in contact with your skin, the less likely you are to develop redness or irritation.

Make sure that the area that you want to treat is clean. You'll want to wash it thoroughly beforehand to make sure you don't have any dirt or dust clogging your hair follicles. If you are using it on your face, you want to be sure that you have no makeup residue left on your face. Make sure that you have dried the area before you start treatment. This is very important!
A few years ago, I was like many of you, frustrated by ineffective hair removal methods and put off by the prohibitive costs of professional treatment. While I was excited by the prospects of DIY laser treatment, the feedback from others who have tried this method seems to be mixed and made me nervous. For some it appears to be nothing short of a life changer while for others…it makes them want to tear their hair out (no pun intended) and some have even gone as far as to declare this whole laser hair removal thing a scam!
Laser hair removal uses pulsed light to disable the hair follicle and requires multiple sessions. It's FDA approved for permanent hair reduction and is generally for those who have lighter skin and darker hair. While home devices, including those utilizing intense pulsed light (see systems) aren't made to be used on the genitals, they can be used on hair outside a regular underwear line. More »
In Judaism, there is no obligation to remove hair; nor is there a general prohibition to removing hair. However, there is a prohibition for men using a razor to shave their beards or sideburns; and, by custom, neither men nor women may cut their hair or shave during a 30-day mourning period after the death of an immediate family member.[citation needed]
Laser hair removal is not a one-size-fits-all. You are probably already aware that you will see the best results if you have pale skin and dark hair – we’ll talk about why later – but if this isn’t your colouring, don’t give up. There are laser and IPL hair removal machines for every skin tone, you just need to find the one that suits you best. So how do you know if it will work for you?

Back to Gillette Venus Face Perfection: The device is small enough to toss in your bag for on-the-go touchups (if you're into that), but it's best used at night. For best results, the tool should be used on clean, dry skin — sans moisturizer or oil. "Evenings are the perfect time to epilate," Orszulak says, explaining that in the case that any minor irritations (like little bumps or just redness) occur, they will have time to disappear while you get your shuteye.
"Removes hair by exfoliating with a flex-crystal pad that removes hair at the same time without the harsh chemicals or pain of other hair removal methods. Perfect for facial and body use - use it anywhere you have unwanted hair! This kit includes a travel case, one large applicator, one small applicator, four small flex-applicator pads and four large flex-applicator pads. It's safe for the upper lip; sensitive areas and all other areas of the body. Removes hair instantly & pain free. Safe for upper lip, sensitive areas, anywhere. Gently exfoliate while removing hair. No pain, no chemicals, no razor burn. 

Depilatory: Dr. Gerstner and Djerradine aren't pro-depilatories, but they are an easy and effective option (even though they usually have a stinky scent that comes with them). Dr. Gerstner warns they can cause burns if your skin is too sensitive and if the formula is left on the skin too long (she's seen the aftermath), so be sure to test a very small area first before you slather it on, and make sure to read the directions and follow them carefully.Try: Nair Shower Power Hair Remover Cream with Moroccan Argan Oil, $9, Target.com
Fortunately, there's a treatment that can safely, effectively and permanently reduce the hair, without the harmful effects shaving can have on your skin. Laser hair removal works by targeting the dark pigment of hair right at the root and destroying it on contact. In a matter of minutes, the session is over and you're one step closer to achieving the smooth, beautiful skin you've always dreamed of. There's little downtime involved, meaning you can receive the treatment on your lunch break and immediately get back to your day.
For gents who prefer a more gentle and natural method of hair removal, Stop Hair’s Hair Reducing Spray can make an excellent option. The spray makes a great alternative to depilatory creams and is made from all-natural, plant-derived extracts. Unlike the other products on this list, this spray is just intended to inhibit hair growth. All you need to do is first remove your unwanted hair by shaving or waxing and then apply the Hair Reducing Spray daily to limit regrowth.
Expert Comments : "The most common electrolysis treatment for young men is the unibrow, but as men get older, many become concerned with excess in the area around the collar and ears, and around the nose," says Patsy Kirby, president of the American Electrolysis Association in Bodega Bay, Calif. But she doesn't discourage men from going for larger areas of clearing: "The length of treatments usually shorten as your time goes on with the electrologist. ... While the first treatment may take 20 to 30 minutes, subsequent treatments may take just 5 or 10 minutes, so it's a long-term commitment, but it's not time-consuming."
