This sounds pretty promising:

http://www.nevershaveagain.com/howitworks.asp

It seems to essentially be a home-electrolysis device. Instead of just a tweezer, it also has a patch with an electrically conductive gel that can treat an entire area at once.

They claim that 2-3 applications is enough to permanently kill the hairs, which I have doubts about. Has anyone used this product?

Hi P-chan! The longest controlled study I've seen with these patch devices measured results at nine weeks. Waxing can last that long for some people.

These devices have been around for a very long time in various forms, and there is still no published data indicating they can achieve permanent hair removal (one year after final treatment). It's only "permanent" if you consider nine weeks an acceptable threshold.

Save your money!
