I'm looking to start the hair removal process at some point in the next few months but right now money is a bit of a problem so I'm exploring some of the lower cost alternatives to treatment in clinics.

One interesting solution seems to be to buy a hair removal device from this company: http://www.silkn.com/About-Silkn-SensEpil

But I'm a little sceptical about its effectiveness. Just wondering if anyone here has tried it and can vouch for or against it?

Thanks =]

I was wondering the same myself, especially as Boots have been advertising them.

In the instruction leaflet for Boots' Smooth Skin PLUS they even have the following warning:

Please note: Treatment with the Boots Smooth Skin PLUS system is usually permanent and complete removal of the male beard is not advisable and will produce changes in facial characteristics, which may lead to a more feminine appearance.

Oh no! That would be terrible! :lol:

Does that really work? I'd certainly try it if it did! Electrolosis has gotten to be too expensive at the moment and I had to completelly stop my sessions so I could pay off my bills. ><

I dunno...It's certainly a tempting idea....but 550.00 is a lot to drop on something. It's a shame there isn't a way to test drive it on a small area before buying.

I had 900 saved up to have my face done at a place that does laser hair removal. I then learned ot the tria and the silk'n sensepil. the feviews for both were extremely positive but i was still a little skeptical. So, i figured maybe i will just buy both and try them. It was a risk but i took it. i figure if it did work i could do my whole body for the cost of just my face. The 2 devices were fda approved to substantiate their claims so i figured MAYBE this could work. If it didnt, well.....whatever. maybe i could sell them on ebay.

You are supposed to use them every 2 weeks. they say you don't even start to see results for 3 months or more. I am only on my 3rd treatment over 6 weeks. I use silk'n on my legs and the tria on my facial hair. I have light skin and everything from blonde to black hairs so i figure i will be a good test subject.

I will follow the regimin strictly and give them an honest chance and a realistic timeframe and see how things go. i will update everyone and let them know how they work.

Please do, I'd be very interested to hear how it goes. I'd kill for the chance to do everything from my face to my toes.

Thanks Kyennamo! I'm sure all of us are really really appreciative. I can tell you I am. Getting rid of this plague of hair is more troubling than it would seem.

I've been hoping someone could give some feedback on these. Nearly impossible for me to keep a treatment schedule for laser or electrolisis, being a truck driver and all.

I'm on the verge of buying one anyways. Face fur has always been one of the things I hate the most. Since my epilator died it's reeeeaaaaaly tempting to give one of these a try. I actually gotta decide in the next few days so I can pick it up at my mom's when I get home in two weeks.

It's gonna be that or a new epilator. If I get the IPL I will definately give updates!

Cheers,

Elena

Are you saying you've been using an epilator on your face??? How?!?!?! That must have been the most painful experience of your life the first time.

Yep, and I'm inclined to agree with you. The only thing that's stopped me from trying it is that I don't wanna go to work with a red blotchy face.

Guest Elena

Red blotchy only lasts about a day, then it's super smooth and soft for about 4 days, for me at least. After that, maintenance every 2-3 days. And maintenance is waaaay easier, doesn't usually make my face red at all.

Ohh, I ordered the Home IPL today! Yay, I'll keep you all posted. First time in my life I've been glad my beard is darker than my hair. Means there should be a good chance for excellent results. :fingers crossed:

WOW that's really great of you to try them both!! What a trooper kyennamo. I'm just starting my journey so some good feedback on those system would be a great help I know I will need electrolysis for my face, but if I could use one of those other systems for the rest? We all will be waiting.

Hi Everybody,

I thought that I have to write to this post my own experiences as being a laser and IPL hair removal operator too.

First of all we must distinguish between laser and IPL treatments. You may think of the laser as the marching soldiers in accordance and of IPL as the freely moving amateur marathon runners. Which one can cause to demolish the bridge while running on through it?

Secondly all the laser equipments are classified (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laser_safety). All the professional equipments like hair removal lasers are in Class IV category. The home equipments belong almost to Class IIIB. Same applies to IPL devices too.

Laser equipments must be bulky in order to be able to achieve the required energy levels. They have to have their own water cooling systems etc. Same applies to the IPL systems; in order to be able to drive the flashlamps they need a considerable space although they may be smaller than laser machines.

One of the reason of the home based devices of not being a Class IV device is that it must be bulky, would be too expensive, and the most important think is that the user of the home devices are not familiar with such a technique and can cause complications.

FDA clearance for any medical device doesn't mean that this device is mostly effective. It means only that this device won't do any harm to the patient when applied properly.

It is very understandable that you get more results with more energy delivered. At the same time more energy means more pain too.

IPL devices are cheaper than laser equipments and also their maintenances cost less.

We are using on our centers Cynosure Alexandrite lasers. In order to be able to have an effective treatment on a fair complexion with an Alexandrite laser, the delivered fluence or let say energy should be at least 18J/cm2 in 5-10msec. It should be at least 35J/cm2 with diode lasers etc. The only reason that there are three different kind of laser hair removal systems on the market, namely Alexandrite, Diode and Nd:YAG, is the color or better said darkness of the complexion.

The devices that you may have as home treatment equipments can never achieve such energy levels. I tried to figure out the energy parameters of some home based devices. Unfortunately it is not stated on their websites. May be I have to ask them personally. Please visit the websites of professional machines like Cynosure or Candela. There you will find the energy levels of these machines, but this is not the case at least with most of the home based machines.

More energy=better results

Good news is that none of the professional and home machines are capable of inducing any kind of skin cancer etc. The worst complication can be a skin burn of a first or second degree superficial. The mostly encountered consequence of a skin burn is the patchy discolorations (hypopigmentations) of the healed skin. Fortunately this discolorations are temporary and fading away at 12 months mostly.

Please take also in consideration that the IPL devices are using flashlamps for the treatments. Flashlamps have a limited life which is measured as shots. I am not familiar how many shots a flashlamp of any manufacturer lasts. You need to take into account that after some thousand shots you have to change the flashlamp. You may ask for the price of spare flashlamps and calculate the price of a single shot.

Every machine has a different treatment area coverage. One single shot of different brands treats different area sizes.

In order to be able to estimate the cost of a treatment, one must take into account

1. the size of treatment area for this particular machine,

2. how many shots does the flashlamp lasts,

3. what is the price of spare lamps

4. the size of the area to be treated and may be

5. how long does it take to have successive shots

Cheers

Ceren, Thank you for the detailed explanation! I read through all of the literature that came with my IPL machine and found that it cites the energy levels @ 5-7J/cm2 for your reference. The literature also states that significant results typically will require 3-5 more treatments to achieve results equivalent to professional IPL treatments.

Well, I guess it is time for an update as I have now done my second treatment. I have to say I am happy so far. At about a week after the first treatment there is definately some fur not growing back on my face. It isn't especially obvious from any distance, but most definately noticeable up close most notably on my upper lip. Got a nice patchy effect with the darker hairs there. Unfortunately for me my upper lip has a lot more blond hairs mixed in than the rest of my face, so it can only go so far. There are also quite a few small patches gone under my chin, but less noticeable due to the location. Cheeks and neck otherwise appear to have had the least noticeable affect, but it is still there, more of a slight thinning than a patchy effect though.

I will post another update in a week or so when the effects of the new treatment make themselves known. My guess right now is that It should take 8-10 treatments based on the literature, and results so far appear consistant with that so I really can't complain. The real test will be how permanent the results are, which I couldn't guess at yet.

Also, it is taking me 65 shots to cover my beard area plus 30 on my chest. Each lens/bulb is good for around 1000 @ $45 per cartridge, so there is a fair chance I will be able to get most of those two area with one cartridge. I am only doing my chest because it is exceptionally prone to ingrown hairs, well and it will allow me to wear lower cut tops without worrying about showing chest hair since I haven't started hrt yet.

More to come as things progress. Cheers.

Wow, lots to learn. The thing I'm worried about is whether or not such treatments are permanent. Certainly higher energy yields better results, but my concern is whether or not it permanently kills the root matricies(think I spelled that wrong... again lol).

Thank you for all the detailed knowlege, Ceren. It helps greatly to know exactly whet we're dealing with. :)

And thank you Elena for the update. I'm glad it's working so well for you and I hope it proves to be continuously satisfying. :)

Dear Serene,

FDA cleared laser hair removal devices for "long term hair reduction" not for permanent hair reduction.

Theoretically if you can manage to create such a big heath right in the hair follicles and bulbs then hair must be destroyed which means that it won't be able to grow hair anymore.

Adolescents have a permanent hair cell count. This means you may lessen them but you cannot propagate.

Second issue is that the human body is covered with hairs but mostly with vellus namely thin, tiny hairs except lips, eyelids, glans penis, palms of hands and plantar surface of feet all over. There is always the possibility of these vellus hairs to turn to terminal namely to the hairs that we want to get rid of.

My experience, I have seen people who had laser hair removal 13 years ago and still not growing hair. Please take into consideration that individual response to treatment can be very different.

Generally speaking it can be said that after 5 or 6 treatment with appropriate power adjustments you will reach the end result.

The interval between every session should be at least 2 months for the body and one month for the face or better said the next session should not be earlier than seeing the hair growth again.

Cheers

Ceren

Thanks very much! :D

I realize that each individual is different. I myself could never have grown a full beard even if I wanted, and I surely do not. I did a bit of research into the cycle of hair growth and how it may be removed before I began my electrolosis. As I understand it the hairs must be treated while in an early growth stage to reach the root matrix in the folicle. I know that each person's hair grows at different rates as well. I myself have a rather slow growth cycle, which means there's a larger window of oppertunity to catch the hairs at the right moment, but also that I must wait longer if it is not caught to reach the right stage. I've been to quite a few appointments though and my cheeks have been cleared up significantly, however there is still much to cover and I can no longer afford the appointments, so I've been forced to stop going altogether for now.

The use of a device as mentioned in this thread would be a tremendous help in the conquests of ridding hair. And while I have some knowlege, information and personal feedback is very much appreciated and I thank everyone for it ^^

Simply knowing how awful such hair can be a wish for everyone to achieve their goals in being free of it!

      Welcome @Beverley, Sorry for such a late reply. This thread was one that I missed but well worth the read. It’s a genuine pleasure to meet you.   This is the most astonishing (and fastest) of turnarounds I’ve read about here on our forum. Feel free to disregard any or all of my questions but I am curious about her incredible change of heart. Was there anything specific you know of that changed her mind? Had you provided her prior to this change…an article, statistics, a podcast, a movie, etc…? What led up to this presenting female to your spouse right before the change of heart?   Regardless of the answers, your wife sounds like an amazing person and has in time become a true ally for you becoming your true self. I wish you the very best on your continuing journey and look forward to reading about some of the highlights as they occur.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      Hi Aggie,   Absolutely.   I sent some pics to my sis.   I've been on hormones for two months almost and she was curious. She mentioned I look shaplier (Is this even a word)🤔   I mean the only thing that is outing me at the moment is the obvious male voice I employ   I don't think I look out of place with the girls if I kept my mouth shut...but I can't.🤭   So next step is to attempt to work on the voice again.   I'm fairly neutral in mannerisms, feminine in looks but masculine in voice.   Luckily for this show I found an entire women's bathroom on an upper level that was empty so I had it all to myself.🤫   ...otherwise I was worried about ruffling feathers in both camps as most of us are familiar with...😬   Just trying to be oneself and not affect others is such a hard thing.   I think the extra tipping point going full dress just helped them to decide how to take me in.   As the street artist said, being honest with how you see yourself and comfortable with your dress/expression is everything.😌

      I've been feeling bad about @LindaMarie. Maybe it's my imagination, but for awhile lately I've been getting the impression she's been privately dealing with some difficult things, not quite sure what.
    • Heather Nicole
      @LindaMarie:   "Runnin' with the devil" is a genuine classic (definitely a Van Halen fan here)!   The Amy Winehouse song (Rehab) is a phenomenal one too, that I suspect many trans people can relate to at least on some level, even if not always necessarily as a literal connection to the lyrics (or...sometimes, more literal). My first introduction to that song (and to any of Amy Winehouse's music for that matter) was from Rock Band...uhmmm...I want to say Rock Band 3? To this day, "Rehab" is still one of my absolute favorite songs to do vocals on in Rock Band. I like to think I'm not too terrible at it!
    • Susan R
      Ditto on this @Lydia_R… But better late than never. 😉 Glad you found us and decided to join us.   I really like your GT and her sage advice. She sounds like a “I’ll seize the day!” kind of therapist instead of “I’ll seize the day….well, maybe tomorrow” type. And you seem to have that same kind of motivation too. With transition, it can be so helpful because there are so many factors that can slow you down, or God forbid, get you completely off track.   Thank you for sharing a little of your backstory with us. I hope to see you around and learn more about you in time.   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷

      My heart went thump thump when I read this! Loved it! One "small" step for Swallow, one giant leap for me!!!! Maybe one day, soon! For new I'm happy "being me" in groups out in public or on zoom. I'm a known entity to hundreds of folks in these groups, and I'm gradually metamorphosing, so I don't think it will come as a surprise to anyone when my attire gradually changes to fit the contours of my body and my mannerisms. Kind of like an adolescent, coming of age, I guess. 
    • swallow
      Many thanks...   Well...the art people were one thing but the production work crew and builders were another thing altogether.   I was a little nervous with them at first. Groups of men huddling around male chatter rather than working.🤨   And i think they were also understandably somewhat nervous with me.   But I think I carried on and issued efficient dissemination of orders and they took to me at least in terms of work efficiency.   The gender question became somewhat irrelevant as we managed to get the job done together regardless.🙂   As they saw instructions from me led to things getting done, I think all other questions with regard my gender were less of an issue.   At wrap of show one of them (A sweet gentleman from Belize) was dismantling an entire wall of beer can 12 feet high by himself...I offered to help him by getting on the ladder to pass down the cans higher up and speed up his process but he declined.   In some sense, they would not let me do the heavy lifting (Sexist)🤭   But also maybe he was afraid I would give him an unwanted upskirt since I was in my frock.😅

      As another California Girl, our arts community is really a cool group of people as far as gender and acceptance things go, and they have eyes for appreciating us.  There are many Trans and Enby artists as well who put their stuff out for people to see and the artists to be seen themselves.  Sounds like you fit in with the group, and the ones I know in person are all so sweet and encouraging that you simply feel at home and completely natural.  Best of luck.
    • Susan R
      Congrats @swallow, It just goes to show you that as you become more comfortable with yourself, others around you follow suit.   I have a feeling that this is just the beginning of many more wonderful and exciting things to come. The art sector is a very affirming bunch overall. I am so happy for you and this confidence building experience you had. Thank you for sharing this uplifting update with us and may you have many more like it!   All My Best, Susan R🌷
    • VickySGV
      OK, so in California we have our own language, but I use the two terms quite often with no offense to the people I know, and they would tell me.  I would not like to hear it from a person using it to talk down to me but that is the exception and not the rule thankfully.  Be sure your use is to lift the  person up and not belittle them or talk down to them.

      Welcome @LV1Rose, It’s nice to meet you. As others have suggested, many of us here are elderly sapphic transgender individuals. As I approach 60, I would be included in that group by most…except for my bisexual leanings more than purely sapphic.   This is a wonderful place for doing just that. We’ve all have trials and tribulations and this forum really does seem to help me when the ‘you know what’ hits the fan. Hope to see you around!   Warmest Regards, Susan R🌷
    • Heather Nicole
      That's kind of new to me too, the idea of "hun/honey" being a derogatory thing (I date back to the 1980's, FWIW, so I guess that makes me relatively old).   To me personally, it sounds like the kind of thing that's not so much about "what" someone says, and more about "how" they say it. I mean, I can certainly imagine "hun/honey" being used in a derogatory way, but I've never known it to be inherently derogatory. But that's just me. Maybe it could a regional thing?

      Hi Everyone,   Don't really know where to post this...🤔   I've been so busy the last 3 weeks helping with an Art Fair in LA.😓   Its been ups and downs at the job but I was very happy my boss gave me the opportunity since aside from film production, I have zero experience in the Art world.🤫   In between, I've almost lost lots of money for her and almost compromised her because I Copied everyone instead of Blind copied.😣   But I managed to salvage the situations ...what I'd deem as taking a -crap- and coming out smelling like roses.🤭   During the Art show I found I was rather more in my element.😌   I was of course still employing a male voice and had soon established an effective control on the floor crew, started to whip things into action albeit still in a gentle non Alpha male feminine lead by example, organize and encourage manner.😊   But the girls in the office and everyone still gendered me as male and called me He or Sir.   Partly this was because I had told my boss that she should use whatever was more natural in terms of pronouns for both her and everyone-else and not make much issue of it.   Of course it still bothered me deep down.😔   Anyway come show days I got a bit more bold with my dress sense.   I had feminine clothing on the entire pre-production but I shed inhibition and started first to wear a frilly see through black blouse and waist high paperbag Khaki trouser on the first day. I elected for trousers since we went full day and into the night and I needed full mobility across the show floor.   But as the show days progress, I was assign partially to a more sedentary paced Door Bitch duty at the VIP lounge for some periods.   So I decided it was time for the dresses😬   Second day I worse a knee length black dress with tassles down the front and Khaki Maryjanes   Third Day I was back in a suit (Female cut)   Fourth day I went full Pink to match the Fuschia VIP Lounge with an ode to Molly Ringwold Pretty in Pink (Meets Korean style...as I was told by some Korean Gallerist)   Final day I had a deep green long dress with a lime green belt and sneakers plus a Retro short crop sand brown duster jacket.   Anyway on that day, I was busy trying to coral people into a talk at an Italian Gallery by a famous Italian Street Artist when my colleagues suddenly called me into the gallery.   I was wondering what emergency could have happened this time...   ...instead the artist then proceeded to point at a new piece of work (Featuring two frogs in suits graffitied)...and then announced that this new work was inspired by me being brave enough to be me.   It was rather touching.☺️   As the final last days progress, I noticed many of the Gallerist started to refer to me in the feminine as well, with 'What's up girl?" or if I was in with my female colleagues "here come the girls".   I even got a bouquet from the Lead painter who bought all the 'girls' flowers🤗   Of course there were still some floor crew who preferred to address me as "Sir" even if I was blatantly in a dress but it did not feel purposeful.   What to me felt interesting was how things turned when I forced the issue with the dresses.   I don't think my female colleagues were expecting me to come in in dress.   There was all their pre-opening night chatter about what they were each going to wear for the event but I wasn't asked and felt somewhat excluded.🙄   That I chose to wear blouse and pants kept any issue with me under lid.   But you should have seen the reaction the next day when I swooped in (all natural) in my black dress.   To her credit the floor boss immediately greeted me with "And how are you today girl?"   Anyway I seem to have made a mark on the little event with my dressing. Apparently I am more than on point and they loved the colour combinations felt I brought a spark to the proceedings.   Inside, I just felt I was being myself really. I would have liked to have had a more female range voice but I had been working with these people before meeting them in person over the phone in male voice so was unsure if I wanted to go female voice and throw such a strong curve ball at them (make it an unnecessary other issue from the work)   But they must have had somewhat of a shock anyway when they first met me in person with my long hair and quite obvious female clothing.😁   You should have seen the looks when I walked the floor in dresses.   Hopefully this is a positive strike for us all? I like to think so. Small steps forward.

      I'd hate to have to drop that from my vocabulary.  Don't get me wrong, I would to keep from offending anyone but it would be disappointing.   I heard this from someone in their mid 20's, so perhaps it's newish in the younger crowd or perhaps just their local area.  Thanks for your feedback.

      I've never heard that "term of endearment" to be considered a slur, whether aimed towards a trans person or a cis-person..  I've never seen it used that way in anything I've read or heard.  But I suppose anything is possible.   Carolyn Marie
