Just get a wax. I have coarser hair. My mom bought me the newest Pro model. Not only did it feel like dry shaving for me but it did not even get the hair at the root. I went over the same place over and over and would be let with stubble. Which is what the buffer pad is for. So my leg would be dry and sensitive. If I put lotion on after, ouch! According to the company I needed to give it more time. I kept it for the 45 days but it never got an easier and I still had to shave to get what it left behind. I would rather save money for laser hair removal. My poor mom had to call numerous times and deal with the representatives trying to talk her into keeping it! Stay away. Get laser.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
