Hi, I want to ask which machine is best for me. I want to use it for body and face, but most for my chin. I really have dark and thick hair and light skin.?And I also want to ask should I shave the place before I use it? Just don’t want to get more hair there. And Is Silk’n Flash & Go Luxx and Remington iLight Pro Plus and Tria Laser 4X are same and if not which one I should get? Thank you!

Thanks for your very timely question. We have actually just updated the article with a new product, the Silk’n Infinity 400,000 – see section 4.2. Silk’n have created a device that can be used on the face and is effective with light hair (as long as your skin colour is lower than VI on the Fitzpatrick scale – https://www.pinterest.com/pin/496170083929483245 ).

Physically pulling hair out of its follicle is a common and inexpensive method of hair removal. Physical removal makes hair take longer to grow back because it has to grow to the surface of the skin in order to be visible. In addition, repeatedly pulling hair out of the follicle can cause enough damage to the follicle to stop it from producing hair. (Note: If you feel a strong urge to pull hair out of certain areas of your body and feel pleasure, gratification, or relief once you do, you may have a rare condition on the obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorder called trichotillomania.)
Our trained medical professionals will walk you through the treatment process every step of the way. At the beginning of the procedure, a female medical provider will apply a protective laser gel to your skin. The light of the laser beam transforms into heat when it comes into contact with the hair, seeking out melanin and deactivating the hair follicles to inhibit further growth.
If you’ve spent years trying to remove unwanted hair–shaving, plucking, waxing, trying various creams–you’re probably ready for a more long-term solution. The Cosmetic & Skin Surgery Center offers the highest quality and most effective treatments with our skilled staff and state-of-the-art lasers. We’ll design a program specifically for your needs to reduce the density and thickness of your dark-colored hair. We provide these treatments in the comfort of our Frederick, Maryland office, and you’ll have the same medical professional for each treatment!
Thank you for the comments. I understand it’s hard to offer suggestions from afar without knowing me, my skin or the exact way I used the tools. I have put a decent amount of money into the GiGi waxing products and am planning to give it a few more tries before abandoning. I hate shaving as it gives me intense razor burn, and I had almost no trouble getting the waxing done by a professional. Especially the bikini / Brazilian area–ZERO razor burn, which I’ve never experienced in my life. I sincerely believe that the issue is with my technique, not the product, and was hoping for some advice on how to improve, or maybe a different brand of wax that might give me less of an issue. If I continue to struggle after another few tries, I will cut my losses and consider the epilator you’ve kindly suggested. Thanks!
Thanks for your comment. No I have never heard of the Rio machine, not very popular worldwide for hair removal. Since you asked me, I did some research and looked at the specs etc and I can’t say that I am that impressed with the machines. I would recommend going for a machine that is more globally known and has more track history such as the machines I have suggested, hence why I summarized the best and most popular and also the safest for treatment on your skin to avoid any injuries or side effects. If you need any other help deciding which of the above machines suits you, let me know your skin color, hair color, area of the body you wish to treat so I can try and assist you better. Regards, Gabby

I have always been sooooo embarrased by my upper lip. I sat in front of the mirror for hours tweezing every little hair I could find. I did this at least twice a week. Then I got it waxed professionally, which worked but it was a lot of maintenance and added up to a lot of money every month, plus it was so embarrassing to go get my lip waxed in my early twenties.
Multiple treatments depending on the type of hair and skin color have been shown to provide long-term reduction of hair. Most patients need a minimum of eight treatments. Current parameters differ from device to device but manufacturers and clinicians generally recommend waiting from three to eight weeks between sessions, depending on the area being treated. The number of sessions depends on various parameters, including the area of the body being treated, skin color, coarseness of hair, reason for hirsutism, and sex. Coarse dark hair on light skin is easiest to treat. Certain areas (notably men's faces) may require considerably more treatments to achieve desired results.
The second thing that I am struck by with the Infinity is the speed. I have averaged about 20 minutes to treat my whole body including face, upper and lower legs, underarms, bikini, and upper lip, which is highly impressive and a total time saver compared to the alternatives. Part of what allows for the speed is Silk’n’s unique gliding functionality coupled with it's quartz bulb that allows the device to reload faster, which is pretty genius. Bank tells me, “Our desire to make shaving a thing of the past has moved us to create a technology which was simpler, faster and more permanent than shaving alone. Through our observations, we tried to closely mimic the physical process of shaving since this is what the majority of people were accustomed to. This led us to the development of the gliding option, which allows the user to move the device in a very similar pattern as they would a razor”.
Thanks for your comment and a few people from Australia have asked me about the Beurer as they can buy it in-store at like, Harvey Norman. I’ve looked into the Beurer machine, but I haven’t tried it out myself so I can’t comment on it’s effectiveness and I don’t know anyone who has. And being in the industry, I know alot of people that have tried different machines over the years and no-one has used this one thus far.
Also, rest assured (even though it would obviously not be the desired outcome) that if the product does not work for your skin tone and hair colour, Remington should stand by their 60 day money back guarantee. If this is the case then you could try an alternative treatment like the Tria Laser, or, although it would be more expensive, get a professional consultation.

I have PCOS, and rapid, thick-growing facial hair is one of my side effects. Yay! So, i've been using everything to get rid of it. Depilatories we're great for about a year. Suddenly, out of the blue, it permanently scarred my skin. So I tried waxing. You have to wait too lonfpg between treatments for it to be effective. Did I mention that the growth on my face is thick. This was far too embarrassing for words. So I shaved. Daily. And shied away from hugging people so they wouldn't feel my stubble. My daughter complained that my face is too scratchy. Then I happened upon a review for the best beauty products on Amazon. I don't want to live without this tool. It's painful, but effective. I have a smooth face again. And I can hug my babies.
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.

Electric shavers, like razors, can be used on any part of the body. Even the best electrics won't shave quite as close as a razor, but they shave close enough. They let you shave without soap and water—a plus when you're away from home. And they avoid nicks, because the cutters don't touch your skin. But electrics can cause ingrown hairs and irritate the underarms. Men's electric shavers are generally heavier and more expensive than women's, but they've consistently performed better in our tests. We haven't noticed anything particularly womanly about the women's shavers, and there's no reason why women shouldn't use a men's model. Look for at least a 30-day money-back guarantee, especially when you buy an electric shaver for the first time, so you can return the device if it doesn't work for you.
I've actually been trying to get rid of my moustache since I was 15 and one of my friends (who happens to be a boy) told me it was really obvious. As a paranoid teenager, I ran home and raided my mum's beauty cupboard and found a Nair Brush On Hair Removal Cream that I've been using ever since and I got myself into a bit of a vicious circle, now always having to remove the hair there. The pros are that it's quick, painless and gets rid of every last hair. But annoyingly, I've found that hair does grow back slightly darker and it's something I have to keep on top of, making sure I slap a bit of cream on every fortnight or so. My skin is quite sensitive too and using it sometimes leaves it looking slightly red, so I always keep a tube of aloe vera gel on hand to soothe it.
There is a low frills epilator that does the job, and does it well. If you’re a student or not sure about epilation as a hair removal process in general, this is an excellent experimental product. That’s not to say that it is not good for long term use. These epilators will run for years. So if you find that you don’t need more features, you’ll find the Remington EP7030 performs very well.
Thanks for your comment. No I have never heard of the Rio machine, not very popular worldwide for hair removal.

If you start to notice razor burn, it may be due to your clothing. "Tight clothes such as leggings, stockings, and jeans can cause ingrown hair and bumps because it compresses the hair against your body, increasing irritation," explains Grupenmager. "Exfoliating twice during the week or up to two days prior to any form of hair removal will help." Try a body scrub like L'Occitane Almond Exfoliating And Smoothing Delicious Paste ($44, sephora.com). Just be sure to avoid exfoliating directly after you shave, when your skin is most sensitive.

Wax Strips come in different sizes and can be used on legs, arms, bikini and smaller ones for face and brows. The wax is also a ‘salon’ style wax. The reason you’d choose Wax Strips over Hot Wax or Warm Wax is for ease of use. Wax Strips are perfect for those new to waxing. There’s no liquid wax to deal with, and no heating. The wax is pre-lined on cellulose (see-through) strips and is as simple as ‘press on, zip off’.
Yes, it looks startlingly similar to those hand grips that some people use to build forearm strength, but this easy-to-hold tool uses its coils to pull strands out from the root (another supercharged plucker). Just hold the flat part to your face and twist the little knobs on both sides of the handle to pluck hairs in any given section before moving to the next.
You are right about the Quartz and you will definitely need it if you have hair growth how you mentioned (which was pretty similar to mine), the Remington Quartz is on the same level as the Tria and really it comes down to personal preference but given you have a lighter colored skin and darker hair color the diode laser in the Tria should work a treat compared to the ipl technology in the Quartz. Go on you though, you have summarized it perfectly, my personal preference is the Tria but its up to you Gabby
I have spent years of electrolysis and plucking chin hairs. Now as I age even more hairs are coming in, so I bought this product. I couldn't figure out how to use it so I went to You Tube and found a competitor's video which helped immensely. I am still plucking the stiff regrowth from years of plucking. This product isn't strong enough for those, but it is getting newer hairs quite nicely. Shipping was fast. Product arrived as described with a bonus eyebrow razor. I like that razor.

If you use it regularly, you’ll get used to the feeling pretty quickly, and it won’t hurt the same way that the first use does. The other attachment heads will all work without hurting you, and you can actually get your whole facial routine done without having to store another device. This is convenient if you’re a traveler and you need to pack light.

One of the rarest yet most serious complications possibly resulting from laser hair removal is damage to the retina, which may result in blindness. Both doctor and patient must wear specialized safety goggles to protect their eyes from the laser, because laser energy is absorbed as heat by colored tissue (such as the retina in the eye). For this reason doctors generally avoid laser hair removal treatment close to the eye socket.

I know it can be frustrating, waiting to see results from laser and IPL treatments… this is the most difficult part. However, let me just ask that you be patient and follow the recommended instructions provided by Remington. Treating the required areas safely is much better than rushing, ignoring the safety guidelines and hurting yourself (or in the worst case burning yourself). If it takes you an additional few weeks to get you the results you want, by going slowly and safely, I am sure you can agree that will be worthwhile.

Plucking or tweezing can be painful, but it may be a good option if you only have a few hairs you want to remove. Times when you might want to pluck include when you're reshaping your eyebrows or pulling out a few stray hairs that appear on your face. You should not, however, use this hair removal method for large areas. It can cause ingrown hairs or scarring.
Epilation can be painful to some people because, as with waxing, it involves pulling hair out of the roots. Because of the pain involved being particularly bad on the first epilation of an area, some people prefer to have the area professionally waxed first, then use epilation to remove regrowth.[1] Wet and dry epilators are comparatively less painful to use as removing hair from wet skin involves less pain.[2] If the pain is intolerable, using a numbing cream prior to hair removal will reduce the pain to a great extent. If the epilator allows for setting the speed of operation, keeping it at the lowest setting may also reduce pain involved in the process.
Getting a quick wax every month or so can keep your underarm hair at bay without reaching for the razor every morning. Worried about little bumps? "If you wax regularly, you will have a very slim chance of getting ingrown hairs or bumps," says Grupenmager. Consult a dermatologist if you're still concerned about whether or not your underarm area can handle waxing.
I think you should choose the Philips Hp6522. It has a lot more accessories than the Braun 5280. It has a sensitive area cap that’s great if you want to epilate your bikini area and your underarms, two extremely sensitive areas. A sensitive area cap blocks part of the tweezers, leaving just a few tweezers to remove hairs from the root, which in turn makes epilation a bit less painful. The exfoliation brush is also good for exfoliating 2-3 times a week. Wash the brush thoroughly after each exfoliation and let it dry to prevent bacteria from growing.

Expert Comments : "Most men utilize laser hair removal for the back, upper arms, and chest and most want it thinned out, not removed -- something which lasers can easily accomplish," says Goldberg. In fact, other than electrolysis, laser hair removal is the only hair removal treatment that allows for thinning, rather than complete removal. While the average man needs five to seven sessions, as men age, more hair grows, especially on their backs, says Goldberg. As such, touch-up laser hair removal treatments are usually needed on average once a year.

Last but not least, the Braun epilator comes with 7 extras! Yes, SEVEN! This includes a shaver head that you can use to shave, a trimmer cap for trimming hair, an efficiency cap, a high frequency massaging cap, and a facial brush. The facial brush helps remove makeup and physically exfoliate any dead skin through micro vibrations. All of these attachments are waterproof just like the epilator itself. The seventh extra is a recharging stand for the epilator.
If you’re in need of serious hair removal on your chest, back or legs, then Veet for Men Hair Removal Gel Creme is for you. This potent product is specially formulated to tackle thick and coarse hair fast and efficiently. Of course, as this cream is powerful, caution is recommended. Be sure to avoid using this product on sensitive areas and always stick to the recommended maximum application time of six minutes.
Because the laser beams used to remove hair target its melanin (pigment), the best candidates have dark hair and light skin. Conversely, those with blond, red, gray or white hair and dark skin are usually not good candidates. Recent technological advances have made laser hair removal for those with dark skin more successful, while techniques for using lasers to effectively remove light-colored hair are being investigated.
It’s not fun to have to deal with facial hair as a woman. It can lead to embarrassment and self-confidence problems. Most hair can be dealt with if you have the rights tools, but the wrong tools will make everything more difficult for you. I want to help you find the best facial hair removal tool, so you’ll be able to comfortably clear out your hair dilemma without having to struggle every day.
This is one of the longest-lasting methods and generally requires 4 to 6 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. The laser beam or a light pulse works to destroy the hair bulb. Several different wavelengths of laser or intense pulsed light (IPL) are available for hair removal. Your doctor or healthcare professional will help you decide which one is right for you.

Hi Tesa! The reason that laser treatment on genitals is discouraged for home treatment is because those areas are generally darker which might increase the risk of skin damage. There are actually different types of lasers, and the salon might be using the Nd:YAG laser which can be more safely used on dark skin. Unfortunately, this technology is not available on home kits (not that I’m aware of anyway). I haven’t treated my linea alba area so unfortunately I can’t comment on efficiency on that area…
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.

There is also VPL hair removal, which stands for Variable Pulsed Light. Like IPL this uses a broad spectrum of light rather than lasers, but the settings can be changed so that different types of hair can be targeted. It has been argued that because VPL hair removal is more precise in the targeting of hairs, it gets better results. However, because it is less targeted down into the hair follicles, you will likely need to have more treatments for effect than laser hair removal.
When I got my curling iron, I didn't read the instructions. When I got my Clarisonic, I didn't read the instructions, either. When I got my Polaroid camera? You get the picture. When I got my epilator, I read the instructions cover to cover. I'd heard about epilation as a method of hair removal a handful of times before, but I'd never tried it until very recently. But after growing tired of waxing — those appointments really add up — and even more so of shaving (meh, stubble), I decided that with a only few weeks left of summer, it was now or never. (Okay, so more like "Now or next summer," but for the sake of this article, let's just go with the first one.)

The combined features on this Panasonic epilator give you a versatile, highly effective hair removal solution, plus a foot buffer to get your feet silky-smooth. It has the greatest number of tweezers on the epilator head out of all the epilators we have looked at, so it removes more on the first pass. You can even use this one with your favourite shower gel to make your hair removable a bit more luxurious!
I prepped for the underarm hair removal by plucking several hairs with tweezers prior to purchasing the device to ensure that I could withstand the pain. It hurt, but it was not terrible. I bought this particular device after reading multiple reviews on epilators. Quite honestly, it was the high volume of positive reviews (NOT written by people who received it for a discounted price) that drove me towards the decision.
Lack of knowledge or cleanliness can lead to disaster. If waxing contraindications (circumstances or conditions when you shouldn't get waxed) are simply unknown or ignored, skin could end up extremely red, burned and even become scabby. Salons or spas not adhering to safe and sanitary waxing procedures could give a client a skin infection, or even a disease.
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.
I had one of these for over 20 years, and it just broke. If this one lasts even half that time, I will certainly get my money's worth. The other reviews mention the pain involved with the process, but that has nothing to do with the product, just what it does which is pulls the hair out. Once you get used to it, it isn't bad at all. The bonus is that you won't have stubble on your legs anymore. The hair grows back softer and more sparse over time.
This item reminds me of radio frequency treatments I used to receive except I used to pay $70. a treatment; it was based on the same principal as this except I would have to wait until the hair grew back before going for another treatment. They could keep me going forever, I was a paying customer. I am already seeing the hair weakening and I am following the instructions given. My hair is fair so laser is not an option. My suggestion for people buying this product is simple. Be patient and it will work. I am not being paid by this company nor receiving special favors. I am a happy customer who was tired of tweezing.
Isn’t it so funny that there are all kinds of places on our bodies where we want more hair? We want fuller, thicker hair on our heads and longer and more luscious eyelashes, not to mention bolder brows. But when it comes to the hair on our arms and legs, it’s a different story. Plus, there are those ultra sensitive areas, like armpits and bikini lines. Removing hair there… not a favorite. And the last place we want to see extra hair growing is on our face! As we get older, most women fight a few pesky, prickly chin whiskers, mini-mustaches and even fuzzy cheeks. Enter the epilator.
Additional and acne hair on the face and body can occur if a young woman’s body is making too large an amount of testosterone. With PCOS, the ovaries make more testosterone than they should, although all girls make testosterone. Hair follicles and skin cells are very sensitive to the little increases in testosterone discovered in young women with PCOS, which leads to excessive hair growth in regions like the top lip, chin, sideburn area, chest, and belly.
Hey Kristina, there is no device or system that can guarantee total permanent hair removal. For example, the products reviewed can only claim ‘permanent reduction in hair growth’ under FDA rules. See this FDA document for example. That said, depending on the individual and the density of hair on the areas used, a result close to permanent removal is possible. I personally saw an 80% (just a rough estimate) reduction in my underarm hair growth after 2 months of treatment – the new hairs that grow out are much less dense and thinner. Though I still do maintenance treatment from time to time, I get a sense that compared to before I did treatment, the reduction is stable and would remain for a long time even if I stopped treatment completely. My sister, on the other hand, who did treatment for her legs, even though she also saw good reduction in density overall, still sees quite a number of errand hair strands that seem to be quite stubborn and grows back, so she has to do more regular maintenance to get rid of those strands.

It is also common for competitive swimmers to shave hair off their legs, arms, and torsos, to reduce drag and provide a heightened "feel" for the water by removing the exterior layer of skin along with the body hair.[21] Some professional soccer players also shave their legs. One of the reasons is that they are required to wear shin guards and in case of a skin rash the affected area can be treated more efficiently.
I have to say that this really has turned my life around. The cream worked almost instantly removing my facial hair but it grew back thinner and I had to keep reapplying before the growth stopped completely. So it does work but you need to be patient and be prepared to apply it many, many times to get the full effect. I strongly recommend this product.

– in some cases (typically where people are maybe a bit to eager to see results quickly and over treat an area) temporary pigment/skin colour changes can occur (either darkening or lightening the skin). Once again, follow the instructions and be patient. Another good tip is to stay out of the sun after a treatment, as this can further encourage the skin to produce more melanin.
It is not hard to see why we love this Silk- épil from Braun. What more could you ask for from an epilator? It contains everything you need for effective, long-lasting hair removal, and once you are done, it is simple to clean! You can be hair free for up to four weeks, and easily touch it up, because this model removes hair as small as a grain of sand!

I've only used a few times, but seems to be doing the job... Still too early to see if hair grows back. I can sometimes feel a little "pinch" Thinking I just need more conductive gel.. I tried it on my chin (just two dark darn hairs) and I tasted a metal-y flavor in my mouth; I do have the silver fillings so maybe that is why. Overall, a good purchase. Once I've used for a couple month, I might come back and update with more comments. :)


If you've ever had your eyebrows threaded then that's the kind of pain level to expect, i.e. slightly uncomfortable but not totally unbearable. Out of all the methods of hair removal threading probably gives the best results for the time it takes and the cost – it leaves the same, smooth, month-long result as using hair removal cream except the hairs are (obviously) pulled out from the root so the results last longer. Depending on where you go it can be cheap or fairly expensive with prices under £10-15), also note that you have to walk around in public with a red upper lip after a treatment so it's probably advisable to go somewhere as close to home as you can and ask your therapist to apply a soothing gel afterwards. To avoid any ingrown hairs in the couple of weeks following a treatment gently exfoliate your skin as you normally would and it shouldn't be a problem.

Yes. You can use hair removal cream during pregnancy because it soft and safe to your skin. However, it may irritate your skin. Keratin is also the substance which contains in hair removal creams which make you feel itchy easily in sensitive skin during pregnancy. I suggest that you should apply moisturizer after using the removal cream to get rid of burning.
Please read and carefully follow directions and precautions for use.

I follow a routine before and after epilation. I use a cleansing gel/lotion before epilation (you should choose it according to your skin type). After epilation, you should apply an aloe vera gel to sooth the irritated skin. Let the gel on for a couple of hours and then apply a nourishing cream. You could also get a calamine lotion because it’s very good as an anti-septic and that can prevent your skin from breaking out.
