My gf's interested in this and I may have my back and a few other bits done in the process so thought i'd see if anyone on here knows the best deals on this as I know there are meant to be some good package deals etc around to drop the price considerably

This hurts like hell! :cry:

I read that it is like an elastic band being pinged against your skin....must be joking!!! And as for the smell of burning hair/flesh...omg! :shock:

You will end up with red areas afterwards and what look like burn marks that fade over a week.Banana Boat Aloe Vera gel from Tesco helps calm it down

I'm having mine funded due to side effects of medication and can only have it done every 6 weeks. It doesn't get rid of the hair overnight so you may need lots of treatments :x

Good luck :thumbsup:

Have you had it done??

I've heard its not that bad and i have a much higher than average pain tolerance anyway but its going to be an answer to a problem for me anyway and the gf wants it too. I've heard that the smell of burning flesh was quite an exageration started by people over on some forums and its nothing like that!

anyway its a relatively quick solution to something thats gonna be helpful in a few areas for me in the future and time saving! thanks for the comments though!

has anyone got any good deals for it then??

Don;t buy one of the home laser removal kits. i spent £100 on a Rio home laser kit and it was ****. Yes, you do smell your hair burning, I've had my eyes done and could smell them burning too! I'd be interested in laser hair removal too, but have no idea about the price!
#4
its ok i wasn't planning on getting one of the home kits. honestly though did u even see a little difference on it or did it do nothing at all??

and i can believe the hair burning smell but above they said flesh burning which is a different smell entirely lol
#5
There was absolutely no difference at all, but purely due to the product design and not due to the laser. With the home kit the laser is tiny you can only target one hair at a time and it was nigh on impossible to hit the proper area of hair to destroy it. Also it took about 5 seconds per hair - it'd take forever to get a whole leg done, never mind anywhere else!

if you go to a hospital or clinic they check to see if it works first on your skin har if over sensitive they dont do it. i had test passed not had treatment yet. mine will be free too thanks to my dr

How did you manage to get it free from the Doctor?
#8
what would be the pre requirements for your doctor to put you forward for it??

also does anyone know much about the tria system as its backed up by experts, gmtv and also is the only system with medical approval but its another home use one! also i hear gillette are bringing one out with the same credentials!

Well prob at a guess to get it on NHS you may get it due to a medical condition like side effects of medication or like say if you were a woman and you getting facial hair and if the extra hair affected you mentally.

there was an article on sky news a few wks back about a guy covered in hair and it can't be removed,he lost some of hsi hearing due to some hair removal and they trying see what they can do for him,so noone problem is a patch on his,if I find the link again I post up unless someone else can b4 me who recalls reading it.

If you suffer from PCOS (POLYCYSTIC OVARIES SYNDROME), one of the known side effects is facial hair so that can be the reason why your GP can refer you. That's the condition that I was referred for.

You have to bear in mind that treatment is every 6 weeks to allow for hair at various stages of growth to show plus you can't wax... you have to shave the area in between treatments. Not sure about using hair removal creams though....i think they prefer you to shave. Some areas have responded very well but others-there is hardly any difference after 6 treatments. Just a case of persevering but if you have to pay for it, it can become very expensive.

Yeh thats be the reason for women,I knew what caused it but didn't know the term exactly used.

Dianette makes you put on weight too,made my boobs bad too.I needed to go on Pill cos too young to have a baby as far as I was concerned and I also had acne,its usually the Pill they give girls if they got acne too.

PCOS is usually due to insulin resistance which causes weight gain anyway, add that to an underactive thyroid and you'll see why i struggle with my weight. I'm desperately trying to lose a couple of stone before my wedding in November, but it's not easy!
