Anyone tried Hena IPL Hair Remover?

I am looking at it, and the price seems write, but it is to expensive still to experiment with. I have dark hair, and fair skin, so I am a good candidate for IPL, but looking for some 1st hand experience with the device before I dive in.

The experiences of members of this Forum have almost universally been that if this is a product sold OTC without showing a professional license, that it is of very marginal benefit.  If it is not licensed and approved by the FDA, it cannot have medical strength actions.  Laser is potentially harmful to your skin and worse if it is misdirected to your eyes.  Save your money for appointments at sites licensed by our our state boards here in CA.

I have one of those little Tria IPL's and it does work, but it's soooo slow getting anything done.   It's really only good for single hairs that are annoying.  As the others said, just save for the professionals.  Much better results as they have stronger machines and are trained better.   Huge difference and I speak from experience with both.   Not to mention, as some of us will attest, some of the "guy years" probably gained you a few scars.  They were nice enough to remove those for me with the laser sessions.  I guess it's the same machine with a different filter.   I don't think any of the home stuff is really all that great and if you're wanting it for a beard or legs, forget it.  It would take you longer to do it yourself than it would be to just save the money and blow all of them out in a few visits.

At the right intensity in the medically determined range by a trained and licensed operator using an FDA approved unit, lasers can help clear up some types of scars but not all, and they do it by "re-injuring" the scarred tissue in actuality.

      Morning @Willow,   Missed you while you gone. I'm happy to hear things went good. Sometimes reasonably well is the best we can hope for.   I stared using my preferred name at work last week. It's nice to finally see, hear and use it.  I also outed myself and changed my name on facebook. So far it's been well received.

      I've always been into the darker things in life. The "goth" lifestyle if you will. Always wearing black, and mean everything: clothes, shoes, jewelry, nail polish, even my underclothes were black. I used it to my advantage; started mixing in an occasional piece of woman's clothing here and there. Honestly I don't think anyone noticed. All they saw was a solid black outfit. I mis-directed their attention.   I did try to always have an out if things were looking questionable. When I first started buying clothes I tried to find things that were more androgynous. That way if something was said I cloud still say I bought it in the men's department. Although I did make an effort to find the most femme men's clothing I could.  I grew my hair out and would have it in a high pony tail. When someone said something I would go into an explanation about how having a low ponytail was really uncomfortable when driving.   I played this game for about 2 years before I got tired of it and started living full time. I knew there would be comments and people would stare but I was starting to see the light. I was happy with myself and started to not care what others thought.

      Hi ladies,   i have stayed away for about three weeks.  I don’t plan on going back to read all your wonderful posts.  I’ll just restart here.   My wife and I  went to our daughters house for a few days.  While there my son and his wife came to visit too.  That made it even more special.  Since we were all going our separate ways on Friday, the kids decided to talk to me about my being transgender.  Since my relationship with my wife is rather precarious I don’t force things on her like they did.  I didn’t  mind talking to them but to do so at the expense of their mother was difficult at best.  Our daughter in law wound up leading the questions. It went reasonably well.    Willow

      You're not wrong. Peers that know what you're going through are very helpful. I can't help feeling that your sons are in good hands though.   Hugs!

      Luck! May it be everything you dreamed of!   Once the bandages come off anyway, the first week is a little rough. 😘   Hugs!

      Im trying to take one day at a time. But like I said, I have a lot of connections all around up here north because work takes me to other places and our law given breaks usally ends up on a truck stop along side of each others. So the big scare is changing the reality when so many have gotten in touch with who I am at this point. I try to tell myself that my personality and morale is still the same no mather how I look on the outside and that it these thing people like about me. Still uncertain roads to take are always scary.   Thanks everyone for such warm welcome Victoria❤

      Thankyou again everyone for your kind words. I am very happy with how it looks so far ... though I can't wait to see what it looks like with the stitches and tape removed.   It's a bit scarey ... despite having been on HRT for the past 5 months ... I feel like I've really nailed my colors to the mast now.   Im trans ... and I'm taking no prisoners!

      Every time I read something like this I just imagine how unhappy she must be. I can see no other reason for the persecution she is undertaking. It's not like she needs the money, or the fame ... it's just pure hate.   And hate usually comes from a deep unhappiness iinside one's self.    So, my plan is to just be happy. I am a transissioning transgender woman and I am happier than that spiteful petty woman.   She can keep her money. It obviously hasn't brought her happiness.

      Yes, FaceApp was pretty much what set me over the edge from 'thought CDing would be the answer til the end' to 'must transition NOW'.    Seeing 'myself' 'outside' did it. And seeing 'myself' in everyday mode as opposed to a made up for cocktail hour mode.   I use it now with the eraser function to see how the hair I'm growing out looks if my face was more feminine, do the gender swap and erase the hair it adds.

      Oh wow, that looks awesome Berni ❤️   Hugs Robin

      Thanks @DeeDee. That's exactly the advice my wife has been giving me ... its nobody's business. Pretty sure I'll wear a scarf ... the stitches and tape are pretty ugly.
    • DeeDee
      It's no one elses business, but I would deflect with humour. Tell them you got it fighting off a ninja assassin or being Black Widow's stunt double for her new film...  Or wear a loose but llight neck scarf x
