I think you will agree with me when I say:
It’s REALLY hard and time consuming to remove unwanted body hair.
Or is it?
Well, it turns out, you can easily and quickly remove ugly hairs in the comfort of your own home by using one of the best hair removal systems.
And in today’s post I’m going to show you what these hair removing devices are…and exactly how to use them.

Silk’n Flash&Go Express
Flash&Go Express is a hair removal device that uses FDA cleared home pulsed light technology. What does that mean? It means permanent reduction in hair growth.
You are done messing around. You don’t want any more messy creams or investing in those razors!
Flash&Go is award-winning system, it has literally taken the world by storm. Not only is it extremely effective but it is two times faster than any other device. 300,000 pulses of light is built right into this device!
It’s not just for your facial hair. It can be used on your arms or underarms, it can be used on your legs or that dreaded bikini area, it can be used on your back, basically anywhere that you have that unwanted hair, from your cheeks down to your toes.
How can you do this so comfortably, with no downtime, in the privacy and convenience of your own home and yet still get those professional results? Because the system uses an advanced HPL technology that works deep beneath the skin surface, going into the source of the problem, which is the bulb or the follicle of the hair.
So how this works underneath the skin surface?
Many people don’t realize their hair grows in cycles. In order to permanently get rid of that unwanted hair, you have to catch the hair in the active stage. There are different stages but it has to be in that active stage for you to capture it and to get rid of it.
Because of the way your hair grows in cycles, the best part about the device is that you only need to use the system once every two weeks. That’s it!
Light based energy is going deep beneath the skin surface, finding that darkest pigmented area and it is targeting all of those hairs at the source, disengaging them, disabling them. They are no longer coming back!
Here’s the deal:
It is a corded machine and this is very important. A lot of people think of the convenience of having the cordless devices but I will be the first one to tell you, you want your device to have a cord.
Because this is sustained energy. There are no batteries to replace, batteries that die out over time. This is a system that is not only going to last you a very long time, but it is a system that you and your entire family can utilize.
It’s one-button technology. One button turns it on. There are five energy levels. Everyone should start out on level one. So just by simply pressing the button, you will go to level one. Then work your way up to level five because the higher the intensity the faster the hair is going away.
Another important thing is the coverage area. When going in for those spa treatments, the treatment area is about the size of your pinky nail. So you can imagine how long that is going to take to do your legs or your entire body.
With Silk’n Flash&Go, you are targeting thousands and thousands of hair follicles all at one time, with one of the largest coverage areas of any at-home device.
Once you decide where you’re going to remove the hair, go ahead and place this on your skin. Place this flat on the skin. You get two options. You can press the giant button just once to spot treat. So if you’re doing the upper lip, the sideburns area, the facial area, the bikini area or where you’re trying to get into the smaller areas.
Or if you’re working on your husband’s back or your legs or your arms, you actually have the option of holding down the button and gliding along the skin. When I tell you two times faster than any other home device offered, you can do an entire body in less than 20 minutes!
Flash&Go makes everything so much more affordable, so much more convenient and so much more personal. When you really think about it because we are all different, we all have different problematic areas.
Maybe for you it’s the facial area, maybe you’re embarrassed about that dark, very masculine facial hair. Or maybe it’s stubborn bikini area where every single swimsuit season you are so sick and tired of the stubble, the ingrown hairs, the embarrassing red bumps.
You can work on all of those areas in the privacy of your own home, do it without any downtime!
You don’t have to make an appointment, or take time off work. But when you think about the savings, it is unbelievable! I challenge you, google it! Just for treatments on legs alone, it can cost you thousands and thousands of dollars and guess what they don’t tell you in the fine print – maintenance!
You might have a few hairs that show up, or another area that show up, and they charge you again! This is why this home system is such a fantastic value. Because you own this device, you own the technology.
When you use the system once every two weeks, you are working in which way your hair cycle grows. So there’s no need to use it more than that. What makes that so nice is I can share this with my husband, with my sister, my best friend, whoever I’m sharing this with.
You have 300,000 pulses of light in here. You have enough for pretty much your entire family! The real key here is that because you are working in which way your hair grows, say in two weeks, you notice a couple of little hairs coming back up. Those were the hairs that were in the resting stage. They weren’t in the active stage. But no worries. Two weeks later you are coming back for those hairs that were in that resting stage and then guess what, those ones are done!
Want to know the best part?
In as little as four weeks, you are going to be noticing dramatic change.
Now this is another biggie. The hair that does return, that wasn’t in that active stage, has also been affected. So you will find that the hair that does return is going to be fine, baby soft, almost feather-like.
You will also notice that your growth pattern is going to slow dramatically. So if you are shaving every single day, all the sudden now you’re shaving every three days, now you’re shaving once a week, now you’ve noticed it’s been two weeks and you haven’t even shaven.
Because of the 300,000 pulse lights, the whole family can get involved. To kind of put that in perspective, when someone says what does that really mean 300,000, I mean it’s such a massive number, an underarm treatment each time is about three or four pulses. A leg, given your shape and size since everybody is different, you might be looking at 30 to 40 pulses.
This is a professional system, so please don’t let the cost fool you. This was created by the world’s number one inventors, doctors, dermatologists and quite frankly even the people who invented those giant machines that you see in the laser centers, that is who is behind this product.
Me Smooth hair removal devices are safe, effective and provide professional results in the comfort of your own home. They use advanced technology to disable hair follicles so that hair falls out and does not grow back.
This tool works quickly so you are hair free after seven weekly treatments. Using Me Smooth device is easy, painless and it takes only minutes to treat your entire body.
This tool is FDA approved for use anywhere on the face or body, including the arms, legs, underarms and bikini area. Unlike many laser hair removal tools, the Me Smooth uses patented elos technology clinically proven for working on all skin tones, from very dark to very light. This technology also works on a wide range of hair colors including black, brunette, blonde and dark blonde.
It provides permanent results on face and body. It can be used all over the body for men and women and on women’s faces below the cheek line.
The system uses the same professional technology used by dermatologists around the world since 2000. Clinically proven to provide up to 94% hair reduction after seven treatments.
It is the first and only at home technology to combine intense pulsed light IPL and radiofrequency RF energies to deliver clinically proven, permanent hair reduction. The combination of these two complementary energies delivers unprecedented safety, speed and effectiveness for smooth, hair-free, beautiful skin.
How it works
Elos energy targets the hair follicle and recognizes the follicle of the hair because of the melanin. A pulse of elos is emitted, combining low energy pulse light IPL and gentle radiofrequency RF to create a synergistic effect of penetration. The light energy is converted to thermal energy, heating up the hair shaft and the hair follicle.
The RF energy is attracted to the preheated follicle, heating it further and damaging it, inhibiting hair regrowth.
First you need to prepare the skin for your me treatment. You need to remove the hair from the surface of your skin. This will ensure that the elos energy is focused on the hair follicles by recognizing the melanin color beneath the surface for optimal efficacy.
If you have dark hair you will need to shave or wax the area that you want to treat. For women this includes underarm, bikini area, legs and arms. For men this includes back, chest, legs and arms.
Wipe clean and dry the area. If you have fair hair (light blond, blond or red hair) it is recommended that you wax or epilate immediately before treating with the me in order to get the best results. Since light hairs do not have as much melanin color in the hair follicle as dark hairs, the amount of IPL energy that is attracted and absorbed is lessened. By epilating the root, it creates a small pocket of exposed blood at the root from where the hair was pulled for the IPL light to be better absorbed.
How to use me smooth on the body
1. Press the power button on the base unit to turn the system on.
2. Press the appropriate elos level button: low, medium or high on the base unit to select the desired elos energy. It is recommended to start with low level and if you feel comfortable raise the elos level.
3. Press the elos button on the handpiece.
4. Gently place the applicator on your skin so that the silver RF contact bars are in complete contact with the skin. The applicator will emit pulses of bright white light. This is elos energy at work. The applicator will not work unless both silver RF contact bars are touching your skin.
5. Glide the applicator over your skin in one continuous motion, moving after each flash. Do not return to the same spot for at least 10 seconds. Repeat until you have covered the entire area 2 to 3 times. Approximate treatment times are outlined in the user manual. You can treat all body areas during the same treatment session.
Do the treatment once a week for six weeks for a total of seven treatments or until you reach your hair removal goal. Do touch-up treatments if and as needed.
How to use Me Smooth on the face
The me smooth can be used on women’s facial hair below the cheek line, on the upper lip, sideburns, jaw and chin. If you have dark facial hair you should shave, wax or tweeze the facial areas prior to treating with the me. If you have fair facial hair it is recommended that you wax or tweeze immediately before treating the me in order to get the best results.
Gently place the applicator on your skin so that the two silver RF contact bars are in complete contact with the skin. Allow one pulse of elos energy on your first target area. Remove the applicator after a single pulse and move to the next target area. The me is not recommended for use on men’s facial hair as it was not clinically tested.
Frequency of use
It is recommended to treat once a week for seven treatments for six weeks. For greater efficacy, you can treat every other day for two to three times a week for six weeks. Touch-up treatment as needed.
The me smooth saves you time with the fastest treatments. Treat face, arms, legs, underarms and bikini area in just minutes.
For an even better experience, the me smooth has four additional enhancements for purchase that make it a truly all-in-one hair removal system: shaver, epilator, precision adapter (to treat small areas or hard to treat areas) and replacement cartridge.
The base unit has a cartridge life indicator that shows you the percentage of elos pulses. When the cartridge life indicator light starts blinking on empty that means that you have five percent of the pulses remaining on your elos cartridge. When the indicator light is constant, your cartridge is empty and you need to replace it.
The me smooth proves to be one of the more cost-efficient choices compared to going to the doctor’s office. Save money and time and get the same results in a shorter period of time.
eGlide is a unique roller electrolysis system which uses advanced patented technology to achieve permanent hair reduction. Use it to remove unwanted hair on your face, on your arms, bikini line and legs, even difficult problem areas like the upper lip and chin.
The treatment is completely painless and unlike laser or intense pulse light (IPL), eGlide can be used on all skin types and there’s no risk of scarring.
No more waxing or shaving. No more painful needle electrolysis at the beauty salon. The machine is non-invasive and there are no side effects. Clinical trials have shown that the device is as effective as needle electrolysis. Use it for just 10 minutes a week and you’ll see over 60 percent permanent hair reduction in just 90 days.
How does it work?
The advanced microelectronic circuitry in eGlide generates galvanic electronic pulses, which are emitted through the conductive roller system. Galvanic current must travel from the roller onto the skin through the body and back to the metal strips on each side of the eGlide. That’s why you should always hold it with your fingers, touching the metal strips on each side.
A special conductive gel must be applied to the skin surface. When eGlide roller is in contact with a skin, the conductive gel transmits the pulses to the hair follicles. When the galvanic electronic pulses from the roller reach the hair root, a natural chemical electrolytic action takes place.
This changes a saltwater solution surrounding each hair follicle to sodium hydroxide or lye. This damages the hair root. With regular use of eGlide’s progressive permanent hair removal system, hair will not be rejuvenated and will not grow again.
eGlide it is so easy to use. Open the back and insert the two triple A batteries. On the control, there are two buttons. The right button turns the unit on and off. The left button lets you select the face roller mode or the body roller mode. The LED light will indicate the selected mode. The green contact LED will light up when the roller comes into contact with a skin which has contact gel. One bleep will sound.
Every box of eGlide comes with special tweezers, a skin marker crayon and silicon treatment stencil. And a convenient carrying case.
Before using the eGlide test it on the side of your neck to ensure that you do not have any adverse reaction, which is most unusual. Apply a generous amount of gel onto your neck and spread over a 1 square inch area.
Switch on eGlide, select face mode, place the roller onto the skin. You will hear two beeps to confirm contact and the green LED will come on. Roll gently back and forth across the skin covered with a gel. After 90 seconds you will hear three beeps to signal the end of that treatment session. If there are no adverse reaction on your skin you are ready to use the hair remover on all your problem areas.
For best results make sure skin is thoroughly clean, dry and non-greasy before you use the unit. Avoid using alcohol cleansers. Use eGlide when the strands of hair are just visible above the skin. After every treatment, use tweezers to gently pull out stubborn hair.
Here’s how to use eGlide on your unwanted facial hair
Apply a generous amount of gel onto the treatment area of around one square inch. Make sure the gel is not too thick and do not rub it into the skin. Switch on the unit and select face roller mode. Remember hold the eGlide between the fingers and the thumb, making sure they are touching the metal strips. The LED will turn on. Gently roll the roller back and forth over the treatment area. Do not lose contact with a skin. If you are using the device on small areas, like the upper lip, do not worry if there is not enough room to move the roller. As long as the roller is in contact with the skin, it will still work.
If the roller loses contact with the skin, it will beep three times and automatically switch off. Just turn it back on again and select face roller mode. Each treatment is 90 seconds long, made up of three 20-second cycles with a ten-second rest period between cycles. After you finish one area you can move on to the next area and repeat the treatment.
Do not exceed more than two treatment cycles of 90 seconds in the same area per day. Do not treat the same area for more than five days a week to give your skin a rest.
Here’s how to use eGlide on your unwanted body hair
Apply gel onto the treatment area of around one square inch. Switch on the unit and select body roller mode. This mode is 11 minutes or two 5-minute cycles with a one-minute rest period in between. You will hear two beeps and the green LED will come on confirming good contact. The machine must always be in contact with the skin or else the safety device will automatically turn it off.
Use it on your underarms. Apply gel under your armpit and gently roll the roller back and forth over the area covered with gel.
It is perfect for that smooth bikini line. Apply a layer of conductive gel around 20 centimeters or 8 inches long and around 3 centimeters or 1 inch wide, which is about the same width as eGlide roller, so that the device is in contact with a limited area over the 11 minute treatment cycle. If you try to do too big area, it will not be as effective.
When using it on your legs, use that special silicon stencil and the skin marker crayon to easily mark out the treatment areas. Just place the stencil on the leg and use the crayon to draw around the inside of the stencil. You can mark out two stencil areas side by side or on top of each other. Apply the conductive gel within the mark area. Gently roll the roller back and forth in the marked area. The skin marker crayon will help you see exactly which areas have been treated.
On the body roller mode, do not exceed one treatment cycle of 11 minutes in the same area per day. You can repeat the treatment in the same area 6 days a week but give your skin a break one day a week.
With continued use you will achieve permanent results. It’s not just for women. The eGlide is great for men too.
It is a 72 tweezer epilator! What does that mean? It means that this is the biggest, the baddest epilator! When I say baddest I mean it works REALLY well. So many women swear by it.
This brand continues to improve upon itself over and over and over again. This unit uses patented technology and is amazing how much technology is packed into it.
This machine has 72 tweezers so it’s one of the the biggest epilators.
The beauty of it is that it comes with the sensitivity cover so you can take it down to fewer tweezers if you’re starting out with it. You can use this total body, so upper lip, chin, under the arm, all the way down to the legs.
The number one question some women ask is what really is epilation. It means that you’re removing the hair from the root, which means that that hair is not coming back. When you epilate, you remove the entire hair. So in week one, that entire hair, including the root ball is gone. Then bye week two still gone, there’s no shadow, there’s no stubble. It is completely smooth skin. If you feel the inside of your arm, that’s what it feels all over your body.
This is huge for women who need to shave every other day! There are many women that shave in the morning and then by three o’clock in the afternoon they’re feeling that prickly sensation on their legs or maybe they have darker hair on the arms. It’s embarrassing, it’s unsightly. Epilation just gets rid of it quickly.
You can use this for face and body. If you get a couple stray hairs on your chin, Emjoi Emagine will take care of it.
The technology is huge on this device. It’s multi patented, it has a dual opposed head. This is a patented feature from Emjoi that really makes it more comfortable, more effective. Dual heads rotate in opposite directions which means they go after every hair – they’re going after the thin and thick hairs, the hairs that lay down.
It’s also a three-disc tweezer system. Really important because that’s also patented technology. It means that each tweezer head has a fixed disk and then it has 2 discs that kind of move in and out so you’re covering more surface area and it’s happening quickly.
So if you’re someone who used epilators years ago and you were like “no, that is not for me”, technology has changed significantly. The epilator that you might have used in the past is not what I’m presenting here. If you’ve always liked epilating, then you will love Emagine. This is really revolutionary in the world of epilating.
This is the plug-in unit and that’s really important. Many ladies say we want the battery-operated system. No! You want the plug-in unit because what it does is it gives you consistent, full power all the time. That equals effectiveness and comfort.
Again, it has 72 tweezers but you can take that down with the sensitivity cover so you can use it if you have upper lip hair which is so hugely embarrassing. If you have darker hair on the side of your face, if you have darker hairs that seem to come in overnight at the bottom of the chin, this takes care of them in seconds.
Think about alternatives. You can shave but then you have to worry about getting cuts, you have to pay for those razors and they are really expensive and then you have to keep doing it over and over and over because you’re not pulling the hair out at the root. Epilating is definitely better way to go over shaving.
But also waxing. The problem is you need an appointment and it’s expensive. The beauty of this is that for the cost of this entire unit, frankly that’s what they charge to wax your legs in a salon. And also by the time it takes you to get in your car and drive to get you legs waxed, you could have been done with this already. It takes just a few minutes.
The main reason you’re going to get it is because your skin is going to feel smooth for weeks, not days. Unlike waxing, you don’t have to wait for it to totally grow out. As soon as it pops above the skin, you can epilate again – 0.5 millimeters on this is when you can epilate, that means it’s really tiny.
The difference is with week one, you’re seeing the entire hair was removed, by week two still zero hair, you’re still so smooth. Week 3, it’s just the tip of the hair starting to come out, which you might not even be noticing yet. And then by week four, it’s the tip of the hair coming back in.
What does it feel? It feels like a prickly sensation, it’s a tweezing sensation, you will feel the most the first time you use the epilator. Every single time you use it after that, you feel it less. There are also two speeds on this machine, so you can customize this to your comfort level.
Here is something that is cordless and rechargeable. You can do your entire body, head to toe, with one charge of the batteries.
When you get those hairs out, they are gone for four to six weeks!
How would you like to have hair that is completely gone for 4-6 weeks. Well that is what Epilady is bringing you.
This system is a little bit different than some other products on the market and the reason why is because it is waterproof! So you can use this when you get out of the shower or you can use it in the shower.
It actually has a guide light for you so you get a little bit of extra light in the shower to see what you’re doing. The best time to use it by far is in the shower or right when you get out and the reason why is because it helps to open up those pores and when it opens up those pores, they get larger and those hair follicles get larger and that allows the hair to just slip and slide right on out even easier than ever before.
It is so easy and simple for everybody to use. If you are a teenager or if you are 60 or 70 years old, it doesn’t really matter because we all have the same hair issues that we are battling on a daily basis.
First of all, it’s a very simple on/off button and you can see 1 and 2. There are two different levels: there is a slower level and there is a faster level. Use a faster level on your legs but use a slower level on places like your bikini line, your underarm, maybe it’s your toes that have a little bit of hair on there that you want to get rid of as well.
Metal discs that the device uses make a big difference. Those are the stainless steel distant discs that act like little tweezers. There are 22 little tweezers that pull the hair up and down. But even more importantly, what is critical is that in between each and every one of those discs are blue nodules. Those are actually little massaging discs and the white parts help to hold the hair down while your tweezing the hair up.
That is so critical because that way it is working in conjunction with each other to make it an even more comfortable. There is also the perfect angle guide so you are always pulling the hair from the exact angle. So you can’t do it wrong.
This will get hair at the root instead of cutting it off right at the surface of the skin like a razor does. When you get it from the root, what happens is that hair is actually gone for the next four to six weeks. Studies have shown that every time that hair starts to reform the root and it starts to grow back, this hair actually comes back thinner and finer.
How do you do it
You do small little circles and because you have the perfect angle guide, you know that you are always going to grab the hairs in the right direction every single time. So all you do is take the guide and tap it down, don’t push down hard on your arm, you don’t need to.
So tap and little tiny circles is all you need to do and that way you’re starting to feel the hair is pulled up and out.
If you don’t feel it, it’s not working. The first time you use it you’re definitely going to feel it but little by little you’re going to get more and more used to it.
To making it more comfortable, avoid the week before that certain time of the month. That’s when your body is the most sensitive to anything. Just don’t do it that week.
Included in the kit is a smaller head, so you are able to use the unit on your bikini area. It’s nice for other smaller areas such as the back of your neck or sideburns. It is more precise and there are also fewer tweezers in there. This means you’re going to feel a little bit of less sensation in the more sensitive areas of your body.
A single charge is going to last you to do your entire body at least two full times. You get the universal charger with it, so when you need to recharge it, it’s super fast – in two hours is charged to capacity. Small enough to take with you and travel with as well.
