I read somewhere that women will spend over $10,000 and two months removing hair from their bodies over the course of their lives. All women agree that shaving is a total hassle, and none of us enjoy doing it, but letting body hair grow into its natural state á la Mo’Nique isn’t (for me anyway) an option.
You can opt to have hair removed via laser treatment at a medi-spa where it would probably run you close to $1,000, or you could use a SensEpil and do it yourself for a lot less. Silk’n SensEpil uses an FDA cleared laser hair removal technology to create a safe, easy-to-use home system so you can conveniently remove unwanted hair in your own home.
You’ll see a big difference in the amount of hair re-growth after the second treatment (each treatment should be done 2 weeks apart), but after the 4th time is when it really kicks in so you might be able to toss out your razor. Since it’s all yours, you can use it from time to time after your initial treatments if you need to (because of hormonal changes etc.), but the results are permanent.
So let’s talk price. It’s $500 which is half the average amount you’d pay if you had it done in a spa, but it’s still $500. I’d recommend going in on it with a friend or two and sharing. Either trade off custody of the machine, or have a bi-monthly lunch and laser party where you can all take turns using it which would also serve as a good reminder of when it’s time for another treatment (not to mention a good excuse to get together).
All said, it’s a good deal and a decidedly impressive way to permanently remove hair. I’ve noticed a big improvement in just a few treatments and the reviews I’ve read are largely positive. Do some checking and see if it would work on you but remember, as with any laser hair removal, it doesn’t work on darker skin tones because the laser works by ‘seeing’ a difference in color between the hair and the skin.
