    Caution, causes hyperpigmentation

    I read the reviews carefully and decided to purchase this device. I used it precisely as directed and after 12 weeks only saw diminished hair in my hair pits BUT it caused hyperpigmentation, which is worse than the hair. It appeared on my face, neck and bikini line.

    I saw a dermatologist and found out it was from the laser. It can be lightened with another type of laser or microdermabrasion and chemical peels but had I know about this side effect I would not have used it. Hair can be removed or shaved, but the skin darkening is expensive and takes a long time to get rid of. This is true of both at home and in office laser hair removal, but if done in office at least they can fix it. I now have the same amount of hair and skin darkening.

    Do some research. I had no idea this was a possible side effect. I acknowledge that I may have needed more than 12 weeks for removal, but clearly discontinued due to the darkening. I did research before my purchase and am an ideal candidate with beautiful light skin and dark hair, but I did not discover until it was too late that is causes skin darkening.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
