When I first received the Silk’n SensEpil laser hair removal device, I had a little hesitancy about using it.   As a women who doesn’t really mind shaving, I wasn’t interested in embarking on a new technological adventure.  I just wanted to stay in my little shick and bic disposable world.  After all, I had been shaving my legs for 20+ years and never had a problem with it.

For a few days, the device sat on my desk staring at me in its pretty pink box.  It also sat there staring at the team of young ladies working with me.  Everyone was enthralled and wanted to test it out.  Even my brother, Frank who had been visiting from out of town asked me about the product.  “I haven’t actually tried it yet,” was my response. “However, I do need to test it out this week.”

That evening, while I was cooking dinner, Frank decided to open the box, and read the instructions for me (I think he secretly wanted to test it out-lol).  He set it up, so that all I had to do was put it on the area I wanted to treat and go!  To my surprise, it was easier than I thought.  Actually, too easy.  I turned it on, waited for the indicator light to illuminate and began the process of testing it on my leg.  I even snapped a few before photos to showcase the results but unfortunately, they didn’t come out so well.  I guess that’s what happens when you try to take close-ups with a blackberry.  Again, it all goes back to being too lazy to buy a new camera and read the operating instructions.  It’s just not my thing.  But, here’s a photo that did come out well.  One of me using the device:

It was so easy to use the Silk’n SensEpil laser hair removal device.  You put in on the area you want to treat, and hit the button.  A light flashes, a quick pulse of heat touches the surface of the area and bam…it’s done.  It’s virtually painless.  It did take some getting used to the heat but it goes away before you can even really register that it happened.  A full leg takes about 15 minutes.   At first, I thought it would be inconvenient to use this but considering that most of my morning is spent shaving my legs and underarms, this is definitely worth the time it will save me in the long run.   And, the cost is so reasonable, at$499.00, it not only beats the spa treatments by a large margin but razor blades can add up pretty quickly too.

Once I got past the fact that I had to learn a new technology (which was nothing to worry about), I was excited about the experience.  More time, less money and smooth legs. There’s really no reason not to use it, buy it and love it.
