Glad I made this purchase
from Regina SK
This unit works great, and I am very happy with it. I have dark hair and light skin. I have had great success with leg and facial hair. I used according to directions and am enjoying the results. I started out on level 3 and with consecutive treatments worked up to level 5. That is when it really started working. Very little pain or discomfort. I dont think I would feel safe using it as often as some reviewers. Every second week worked great for me. I think if people are not seeing results they probably dont have the right hair or skin color, or not following directions. I will continue treating other areas and doing the odd maintenance treatments on my now hair free legs. This product works!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

on my way to total freedom
from Stoney Creek ON
I was reluctant to purchase the flash and go because of the cost. I'm not an impulse buyer but I gave in and I'm so glad that I did. I bought the unit during the August showstopper for $224 with the lifetime cartridge.I wanted to use the unit for a while before I submitted a review. If I didn't give it a chance to do it's thing then I could offer a fair review.I haven't shaved my legs since mid September. Admittedly my legs were never very hairy. My armpits however are a different story but instead of having to shave every day in that area, I'm only shaving every 3 to 4 days and the hair that grows back is finer and fewer. Loving this unit.I'm also using it on my husbands neck and seeing some very real results there as well, although he doesn't let me do it as often it should be done.I am fair with dark hair so I guess I have the optimal combination for this unit to work. Still using it on the lowest setting once every two weeks.I would very definitely recommend this unit to someone who wants to be hair free. It does exactly what they claim it does.

finally starting to somewhat work
from selkirk mb
I bought this product as a showstopper in July mainly to treat my coarse lip and chin hairs but I have used it on my underarms and legs. I followed the recommended usage and did see some very minor changes to the hair growth and texture but nothing spectacular on my face. On my underarms and legs I did see good results mainly I think because I was blessed with not a lot of hair in those areas and the hair that is there is fine and dark. After trying to research the proper treatment intervals AFTER the recommended treatment cycle has been done, I decided to up the treatments to 3 per week. It does not not say anything against such frequent treatments in the user manual or website and I got some advice to up the treatments from other reviews elsewhere on-line It is only now after two weeks of this am I seeing better results on my face. The hairs are growing more slowly and somewhat finer. I will continue on for a bit longer as it is a laser and not sure at all the safety in doing this so frequently.
GREAT results! :)
Was very reluctant on making this purchase, however I am getting great results. I've completed 4 leg treatments so far & immediately I notice the difference on the first treatment. The hair was growing back at much slower pace & normally I shave my legs every 2nd day, as I do a lot of swimming & dancing. After the first treatment I was able to go a full 8 days without shaving. Just to be sure, I decided to wait for after my 2nd leg treatment before starting on the underarm hair. Now I am getting the results there too, but not as fast as on my legs and I suspect it is because I lower the setting for my under arm due to the sensitivity of the area. So that led me to try the facial hair on the low setting & immediately I had results & now have completed my 2nd treatment & will not have to do it for maybe a month from what I am seeing currently for my facial hair, but will do the two week treatment as indicated to achieving the permanent results. I do have dark hair on medium skin tone & rather a very hairy girl. I've also completed 2 sessions on my hairy toes & it's working well for those stubborn hairy areas. I will keep up with doing it all every two weeks & look forward to permanent results. Currently my leg shaving is much less (was able to go 10 days this last go around) & hubby is please with the softness & also noticing the difference. Will update the review as time goes on, I'm so happy that I bought this & for me even if I didn't get to permanent status I would be ok, because it has cut down on my shaving & maintenance hair removal procedures big time! This is very easy to use, fast & efficient. I am worried about the bright flash, so I turn my head away & close my eyes upon clicking the button. Follow the directions & start out on the low setting & move up the settings to where you can tolerate it. I am using the high setting on most of my leg, except at the back by the knee area where my skin is more sensitive. My under arms & facial settings have been on low. Giving this 4 stars because I am not at permanent status. I too bought this during the promo in August.
Slow but Sure
By sharon the postie
I totally agree with the last review. I too have noticed bald patches on my upper thigh and bikini area. I have used it for the third time today, and will watch closely over the next week to see how much regrowth appears. They CLEARLY stated over and over again the requirements for use so I too don't understand the other ratings previous. And pain? HARDLY! One second of slight burning at max power.It obviously will take time ,but will surely be worth it. Meanwhile once a week use and all it takes is a few minutes of your time is very reasonable to expect.Will give it 5 stars when the final results are in.

Really depends on hair colour!
from DOLLARD DES ORMEAUX
I have used it primarily for my chin hairs and underarms, and have found it somewhat effective. I had several fine dark hairs on my chin, along with a lot of coarse white hair. Although not all gone, most of the dark hair have either become even finer or are no longer growing. That's the good news! The bad news is that if you have those pesky white hairs, don't expect to get rid of them with this machine! I still am tweezing because the machine has no effect on them. I even resorted to painting them with a black marker to attract the laser to them - bad idea! If the marker touches your skin by accident, the laser zaps that as well! Ouch! Jury is still out on the underarms since I am not very consistent in using it. Bottom line, if you have dark hair, I believe this machine can be very effective. If you have white or very light blonde hair, forget it!
from Surrey, BC
I have fine hair - did not find that this works for me. Was disappointed as I hate shaving/waxing my legs, arms, etc. Back it goes.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

So far, so good
I bought this device during a Showstopper sale in August and started using it right away.I've been using it on my underarms, bikini line, and legs, and I've already noticed a few "bald patches" under my arms. I think that's pretty good, considering it's only been three treatments. The device itself is really simple to use, you just plug it in to a wall outlet, select your intensity level, put it against your skin, and pull the trigger. The sensor even blinks green when the flash is ready to go again, so you don't have to guess at the timing. How much easier could it be?A few things to note: if you do not have dark hair and light-ish skin, do not buy this product! I don't understand why people would give it a 1 star review when it clearly says not to use it on white or blonde hair. Also, it does sting a little, especially on the higher intensities. It feels like a biting zap, but it only lasts a second so it's not a big deal (and I'm a wuss, hahahaha). Lastly, be sure to shave the area first, not pluck or tweeze or whatnot. In truth, the only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating is because I haven't gotten those permanent results yet. If, in a month or two, I find that the hair is totally gone then I will for sure give it that extra star.

DONT DO IT!
By the banker
Cutting off my leg would have been less painful, don't buy this unless burning and throbing for hours is your idea of a good time....not even ice and codine helped, couldnt put in the return mail fast enough.
