Hair removal (it has to go!)


equinox

Recommended Posts

One thing I've always wished to be rid of is body hair. I'm not at all a "hairy" guy but what little I do have I would really feel better being rid of. I've tried waxing but I consider it utter agony and shaving just makes things worse in the long run.

 

To this effect, I'm considering laser hair removal. Now I don't' have the money to go to a salon to get it done but I see that argos have the following product...

The problem I foresee with this thing is that it could just be a total waste of 150 euro. I'm just wondering if anyone has used any of these things and if so, have they had success with them. I wouldn't mind buying it if it worked.

Why don't you just by yourself an epilator instead of spending so much money on laser. You can get a good epilator for like $84. I have one I use it on my legs. It hurts but it's not as bad as waxing, and the hair grows back thinner. I tried waxing my legs once and it hurt like hell.

 

I know a guy who epilates his face, he puts this numbing cream on it and then rubs it off before he epilates. When he removes the hair with the epilator he doesn't feel it. I have one by Braun, it really works. I also bought the No!No! by Sephora a while ago, it cost me $200. What a waste, it supposedly kills hair just like laser, instead it just burnt the top. My hair grew back thicker, I am still extremely upset about wasting 200 dollars on it.

 

One of my co-workers had laser hair removal on her arms and legs. She said it was worth the money but you have to be committed to going to all the sessions. In my opinion it's a little bit ridiculous spending that much money to get hair removed.

By the way be very careful buying products online even if there are alot of good reviews on it before you buy it. Before I bought the No!No!, I read many reviews and alot were good reviews. I made sure that there were more good reviews than bad ones. I didn't want to waste 200 on a product that didn't work. I eventually bought it, after seeing all the good reviews by people who bought it and had "good results". It didn't work for me at all, it took off the hair but it grew back thicker. I think alot of people try to convince themselves that something works even though it really doesn't, just because it's supposed to work. So be very careful and realize that it might not work for you.

Hair can't really grow back any thicker than it already is.

 

Are you sure? Cause mine sure did. I used to have light soft hair on my legs, and then when I used the No!No! on it, it grew back thick...almost to the point where it looked like I had pubic hair on my legs. that I epilate it looks thinner again.

It can grow back darker and at a different angle which gives it the appearance of being thicker.

I've heard a lot of bad things about No No being ineffective for anything other than fine hairs....especially the smell, since it literally burns the hair off.

Yea I used it on fine hair, all it did was make my hair darker and look thicker. It def. burnt the hair off but not permanently.

^ I'm getting a tattoo removed at a clinic and it's true that it is very daunting, uncomfortable, and often embarrassing going to places to ask for these things done. However, the important thing to remember is that the doctors, nurses and staff at the clinics do that kind of stuff every day! Removing hair from male "private" areas means nothing to them, and is probably a very very common occurrence in their daily work, so you shouldn't feel uncomfortable about going to a clinic.

 

The product you linked to in the OP - I doubt it would work as effectively as hair removal in a clinic and is probably a gimick. Clinical laser hair removal involves very powerful laser beams - ones that you wouldn't be able to purchase or operate without being a qualified nurse or doctor. If you went to a clinic the results would most likely be almost 100% successful. The only downside is that it may be a little more pricey than these DIY things they try to offer.
