Many women face problem in getting their hairs removed, monthly or weekly, and often think for a laser hair removal package. But these packages are very costly and sometimes pocket does not allow that expensive treatment. So best product for this problem is Silk’n SensEpil, which is a home hair removal device which comes with proven clinical success and results of market leading Silk’n physician. It has been cleared by FDA for home use. Silk’n is only device, with FDA cleared indications, for removal of unwanted hair. It is a beauty tool that is safe and requires multiple treatments to have best results out of it.

Silk'n SensEpil

SensEpil is small, portable device about the size of your hand and is quite easy to use. It uses a special laser technology known as HPL. SensEpil hair removal device can be used anywhere on body. But there are some conflicting reports about its use on the face, some sources saying it shouldn’t be used due to potential harm to ones eyes, while other sources say it’s okay if it is used below the cheek line. To avoid this confusion it would be better to consult a SensEpil owner’s manual.

SensEpil is a great innovation but unfortunately it is not for everybody. Currently this product works only on lighter skin tones. HPL laser technology is not effective on darker skin tones for some reason. Luckily SensEpil comes with a skin tester, that will alert you if your skin tone is too dark thus rendering treatments ineffective. Before purchasing it you should consult various sources regarding it’s potential on your skin tone.

This device actually applies Home Pulsed Light (HPL) technology, which uses optical energy to disable hair growth. Then hair shaft absorbs this light energy and then transform it into heat. As in more detail this HPL technology is especially important because of its intensity which is said to be similar to what you see at a doctors office while getting professional laser hair removal treatments.

Traditional laser hair removal packages consist of 6 treatments over 8-12 months and their costs ranges from $3,000-$5,000 which is quite expensive and cannot be afforded by many Americans normally. But Silk’N SensEpil is an excellent alternative to traditional treatment, which is more affordable and actual device retails for $500, for 6 treatments with Silk’N SensEpil you can expect to spend roughly $750. Great news for people who are thinking to purchase SensEpil, as it is available for sale in United States and can be purchased online or direct through, and for $499.00.

(I have high hopes for Google’s Android over the long haul, but if that OS changes everything, it’ll have to do it on a handset that’s more groundbreaking than T-Mobile’s G1.) >>read more
