Home Laser Hair Removal, Boon or Boondoggle?



I was reading my email this morning, when I came across an ad for Silk'n SensEpil home laser hair removal system (right picture). You can see it at this url : http://www.skinstore.com/p-10105-silkn-sensepil.aspx. Sorry but you'll have to copy and past the link into your browser's address bar, because I still haven't figure my way around this Byzantine system.

Has anyone had any experience with this device, or is it just another scam, like the radio frequency home electrolysis kits (left picture) that proved to be totally worthless? The ad says that results are comprable to professional laser hair removal, but I have my doubts that anything safe enough to be used at home, would have the power to be as effective as a professional device.

The top picture is the RF electrolysis kit, and the bottom picture is the Silk'n SensEpil home laser device. Sorry for the mistake in the original post. I'm still trying to get used to how this system formats picture and links.

When I see mail order items and wonder if they would work, I give them the Wal*Mart test. ..."If it isn't sold at Wal*Mart, it must not work."... Even things with marginal value are sold at Wal*Mart!

Hair zapping email on way, too long to post.

Stephanie, you're probably right. I especially don't trust a lot of stuff you see advertised, that says, "Not sold in stores"

Re: You managed to get an image to come up in google reader! How did you do that?

Caroline, when I start a blog, I get a format, similar to what you get in MS Word. It has some icons along the top border, one of which is for inserting images. I right click on the web image I want to put in my blog, then I choose "copy image location" (this is for Macs only, not PC's) Then I click on the image icon, and get a box to paste the image url in. Then I just paste the image location in that box.

Thanks, must try harder! My last post was to be words interspersed with images, images did not go where I wanted, bit like life, no really good handbook supplied.

hmmm... i have the first device from Silkn that doesn't have the built in sensor. this one - sensepil - is supposed to be safer on the skin, but does it work as well as what i have? mine is great, but i might buy the new one for my Mom's birthday. any thoughts - i may buy directly from the company at silkn.com

i want to purchase the silk'n sensepil for myself and have been looking around the web for reviews. supposedly the sensepil is a new technology and works well but it only works on fair skin and darker hair?
