there are a bunch of threads on these machines. if they worked, we would all be using them instead of paying for professional treatments. and clinics would also be buying $2-5K machines, instead of $50-100K ones.

please run a search using the search feature to read more on these and other home machines.

Thank you so much, Lagirl, for sharing the information. \:\) that's the most useful "hair-removal" forume I've ever read. \:\)

I have a question to the list of lasers you posted. In my region the choise of Candela lasers is not that wide, I've found only 1 GentleLase so far. \:\) (don't know if it's alexandrite or not, I've made an inquiry with them) Or, are all gentlelase are alexandrite?

And I found another laser used by one doctore, named GentleYAG.
I've never heard anything about this one. Does anybody has any experiance with it?

Julia

both of these machines are listed above in the list.

alexandrite, diode and yag are types of lasers. the machine names are models by different manufacturers. eeach type of made by varioues companies, and some area better than others. which you need depends on your skin type. please read the FAQs to determine which you need. both of the above are good machines, so which you need depends on your skin type.

I met with someone that is highly skilled and very confident! She uses the Scition Yag and IPL. SHe says IPL is great to great a deeper wavelenght and finer hairs. She says it is all in the skills of the person, not just the machine. Anyone had luck with this machine? Everyone is so Gentelase and I met a women too who says she has great luck with it, but on brazilian woulnd't go with higher joules and if the hair is in anagen, you can kill a hair at 10 or 12 joules. HElp!

What about aculite?

http://www.aculight.co.uk/

Does that use one of the listed machines (IPL), or is it a system in it's own right, as the website seems to imply?

lagirl,

A colleage of mine is thinking of buying an Axiom IPL for hair removal.

To date, I have never seen anyone who has had any lasting permanent hair reduction with an IPL. Have you heard anything about the Axiom IPL? I think it's new. Is it on your list under another name?

I have learned to trust you and I respect your knowledge.

Sincerely,

I haven't heard of that one specifically. However, the technology of IPL is not as good for hair removal purposes as a true laser. If their main purpose is to provide the best hair removal possible for their clients, I would strongly recommend getting a true laser. GentleMAX by Candela is a new machine that combines alex and Yag machines for light and dark types into one. They may want to look into it instead.

This has nothing to do with the topic of this thread. These spammers are like the those annoying solicitation calls we get all day long. Bang! Bang!
