"Selectif™ Pro is the next generation of long term hair removal devices."

"Specialty treatments that complement existing hair removal methods."

Why bother with a device like this? It's gimmicky.

If your hair is too light for laser, electrolysis will get it without using another device.

I asked for opinion of somebody who has experience with this device..

If it does not sound good to you than use electrolysis.. But it definitelly sounds good to me!

Then use it yourself and share your observations. We don't care if someone wants to try something - we all have the freedom to do what we damn well please. No one here is going to lose any sleep over your decision to try something that definitely sounds good to you! No one has answered your question with a thumbs up signal. I agree that it is gimmicky, but you can keep checking back here periodically to see if anyone will share information with you to convince you that it works.


This product was being studied in 2006 (Israel) and the release date was scheduled for 2009. We're here and it's new, so there is probably very little to report just now. So let's see where it all goes? Maybe you will find it, use it and come back to report.

My experience: it does not hurt, does not cause any side effect and it does remove the hair. The question is for how long? I think this technology is very promising, but of course,(the same like with laser)you do need multiple session and it is expensive! There is not just initial investment, but every 35 000 treated hair, you have to buy a new probe. Selectif can treat 15 - 20 hair per minute. Think it is a great device, for people who want to treat small areas, however for larger areas you would need a lot of money and patience. Anyway, they will very probably come with improvement and possibility of using impresa on large areas..

vell -

Did you have this done in North America? I didn't know this was available yet.

According to the Applisonix website they are working on a version of Selectif Pro that treats larger areas of the body.

Hello S-Wave!

I am glad to finally meet somebody, who is also interested in this technology:) It seems to me a bit strange, that no one here is talking about, but it will be probably caused by the fact, that it is too new and everybody is tired by scams...

I do not know about any clinic or specialist who offers a treatment. I was in one European company, which sells medical devices. They gave me some prospectus and allowed me to try it myself for free. I was also told that they recently sold a few of them.

According to my information they are not working on a new version, but on additional device, which should be possible to use with selectif. Kind of new probe I guess.

I am wondering what would be better.. buy it now or wait? What if they will not come with improvement? How long it can take? And what if they will make completely new device on larger areas and I will not have money on it, because I would have already spent them on selectif?

Vell,

Yeah they are working on an add-on to the existing selectif which will allow for treatment of larger areas:

4th paragraph down.

Sounds interesting. Hope it comes to North America soon.

If you don't mind answering which part of the body did you have it tested on? Have you tried regular laser? If so, was there a difference? No pain is a pretty big deal though IMO.

I tried it on my shin. There was no pain, just slight warm feeling. I have never tried laser, as my hair is lighter than my skin, so I would burn the skin and hair would stay, and that´s not exactly what I wish:))

It is too early evaluate result. After week, my skin is smooth; there are no ingrowns, no papules, and no irritation. But when I read manual, I realized that I did not use selectif right way. Hairs did not have the right length and I think, I few times touched the skin. But I can come again and try it once more after few weeks, to be sure about results.

Anyway, even if the result is not permanent, I would still think it is a great device, as my skin reacts very sensitively on waxing, epilators and depilating creams, so this looks like solution. Just have to wait until they will make that additional device..
