So, long story...basically I'm as hairy as a man, seriously, and had a full beard, mustache. I started laser treatments at our local hospital and did them religiously for about a year or so paying large amounts for each treatment. My daughter also has hair everywhere but more on her neck and chest area. She also started treatments at the hospital. The money was hurting badly but we loved the results. Then someone told us about their Silk'n machine and told me that she owned one and that it should maintain what we had started.....and upon research we saw that this one was new and that you never had to replace bulbs. This machine was the same cost as each of us going to the hospital only ONCE!!!!!....We started immediately and because we had already been going we started it on the highest setting and I use it once a week. It takes me like 3 minutes, doesn't hurt at all and keeps things under control. Yes I have a few hairs that grow back but this machine is AMAZING. I'll tell you a few tricks also, I do zap my tough areas twice sometimes and I doesn't hurt it at all (but use your own judgement) and if the machine doesn't work in a certain area, it's how your jaw lies verses the machine needing to connect properly....try a different angle or make a face to distort your jaw....as soon as it connects it will zap. I love that I get to be at home , do it whenever I want any OHHHH the money I'm saving!!!!
