Bottom line is, it sort of works ... you have to hold each hair
for 30-60 seconds to make it turn loose. And one treatment won't kill the hair. Imagine doing this for each and every hair! Believe me, this is a slow, slow, slow process.
It works better on thin hairs. Heavy chin hairs are immune to this product. So if you have a few thin eyebrow hairs to kill, it might be worth your time. But I would rather be washing a cat than use this thing again!

Their customer service is horrible, the say they guarantee your money back but it's a LIE. I tried cancelling the order 3 days before they shipped it and they refused and sent it anyway, they will not return my emails and are not giving me my money back when I don't even have the product. DON'T BUY FROM THEM, THEY'RE THIEVES!!

This product is a real joke. Myself and my girlfriend both tried this product and followed the instructions to the tee, and not even the first sign of any results showed. We both had open minds and tried it. We was able to send it back, and after a few weeks and two follow up phone calls we got our refund mius shipping. Its up to you, but I would avoid this product.

.***GEL DOCTORS USE TO DO ULTRASOUNDS WITH CAN BE USED FOR THIS- AND IT IS A LOT CHEAPER FOR THE AMOUNT YOU GET!!!!!
I am a licensed cosmetologist and have done hair/nails/skin/makeup for over 15 years. I have experience and knowledge that is required to get satisfied results with products like this. The first thing a person needs to know before purchasing this is the life cycle of hair growth to begin with. Each hair has a different growing cycle. One week it grows 1mm but the next week it does not grow at all. During the 'no grow period', the hair does not respond to anything.This includes hair on your head, legs, underarms, butt cheeks, even face. THEREFORE, IT IS FAULTY TO ASSUME THAT THIS PRODUCT OR ANY OTHER REMOVAL PRODUCT, CAN GIVE IMMEDIATE RESULTS. It just not possible for quick results. The second thing a person needs to keep in mind before buying this is multiple purchases of the pads/gel is going to be needed. Third thing to remember is that this takes patience. I broke up my leg sessions so it was not so tedious. The fourth thing a person must acknowledge before buying this system: It costs around $9000 to get a FULL body treatment OF PERMANENT HAIR REMOVAL FROM ANY PROFESSIONAL. And that $9000 still takes a long time to complete (again, because hair growth cycle). They only thing better is that some one else is doing it for you.
So several years ago when I got mine, when money was tight, I did my underarms- a couple of unruly face hair- eye brows- up my mid calfs (so I could sit in jeans and not reveal 'cousin it')......HAIR GREW BACK SPARELY...I GOT HAPPY RESULTS......remember, cash was low. So I did not go back to spots repeatedly- (I ran out of pads). But the results are awesome. Years later, I still have 50% hair that grows back in the treated areas.....everything is better! I do not have to shave as often (takes a week for me to look bad vs. two days as before), my eyebrows don't looked perfectly plucked but they do look shapely always....and I can sit in jeans without 'cousin it'! So yes, from a professional, Finally Free is permanent. And will need multiple replacement pads. And will need patience (but this is because of the hair growth cycle- NOT ANY FAULT OF THE MACHINE). Like me, you can do a little and still get happy results.......***GEL DOCTORS USE FOR ULTRASOUNDS BE USED FOR THIS- AND IT IS A LOT CHEAPER FOR THE AMOUNT YOU GET!!!!!

I've tried electrolysis so when I saw the Finally Free system I thought it was a new, technologically advanced version of electrolysis. In electrolysis, they send a needle INTO your hair canal and actually touch the hair root to dissolve it. As you might imagine, this can hurt. With Finally Free, you instead simply grab the exposed end of the hair with electrified tweezers. The current goes down the hair, destroys the root, and the hair just slides out.

This sounds PERFECT, doesn't it? They claim that after a few months of using this, the hair simply gives up and stops growing back. So it's painless, relatively easy (though a one by one proposition) and in the end you're hairless. Or so they say.

I worked quite diligently with this device because it really was painless. It is sort of tedious, grabbing each hair, waiting a full minute, then sliding the hair out. The device isn't well made, in that the clamp for the tweezers is unleveraged and you have to squeeze really hard to get the current into the hair. It's fine for the first 10 hairs or so but after that your hand really starts to cramp up.

But even that I could have taken if it had worked. No dice. I half wonder if the hairs slid out because they were being gently tugged on for a minute and finally just came out. At least it's painless. But even after diligently working on an area for 3 months, there was just as much hair growing in again as at the beginning.

Yes, I know that hair is on a cycle and that at first, the hairs growing in aren't the ones you just pulled out - they are the "other hairs" that had previously fallen out and not yet grown back again. But after 3 months, you're definitely working on the same group of hairs - and they just keep growing back in.

I still have this device and still use it occasionally in the vain hope that it'll do something. It's harmless fun while you're sitting and watching TV (although it does wear on your hand with the gripping issues). But between the one hair at a time issue and the never-seems-to-work issue, it doesn't seem worth it.

This product is worthless. It is very difficult to grasp a hair with the tweezers. And my fingers got cramps pressing and holding the tweezers tight enough to keep the light on bright for the three minutes. The patches also did not work at all. We (my boyfriend helped) tried them at least three times and not one hair came out. Even if the thing actually worked it would take years to accomplish the desired removal. Unfortunately I didn't save my receipt so I can just kiss the $100 goodbye. I'm saving up for the Tria laser but I will research it heavily (customer satisfaction) before I purchase.

I usually do not buy magic things that make all your problems vanish but this time I wanted to believe. But I was Very Wrong! The device is utterly and completely worthless, even after trying to hold on to one hair for 20 minutes made no difference whatsoever - when I finally pulled the hair, it felt like using tweezers. Add the fact that keeping the jaws together is a hard labor and the patches do absolutely Nothing and you have yourself the worst known (to me) product on the market. Now that all the negative reviews have hopefully kept the Amazon shoppers safe from this comes next step - BBB.

Completely agree with most other posts here- what a piece of worthless junk- praying on the gullable public! I even tried treating my hairs with it for 5-6 minuets(even longer than the company recommends). Then tried to tweeze them...ouch!(course hairs). No difference than plucking with the bathroom tweezers. BEST ADVICE- save up the money you'd spend on this piece of junk and find the most affordable Electrologist(FDA/Licensed AEA) in your area. It's a slow process(up to a year of monthly visits)- but anything done RIGHT takes TIME!

I was delighted to hear of this product as i believed all my days of shaving, waxing etc would be over and done with! foolishly i only read the reviews from the company's actual website!what a fallacy! This did not do anything. i used it on several occasions and it made not a bit of difference! Laser hair removal is the only thing that produces results for me! Save yourself some time and energy and do not order this product! I ordered the product on ebay as it was slightly cheaper and so i didn't get a refund :((

The tweezer electrical contact points are way undersized, which makes it difficult to grasp individual hairs and this is therefore a poor design that should have been corrected but never was. That can get very frustrating. Why make it hard to use by not designing larger contact grips? The maker/seller claims 60% success rates but 10 or 20 might be more accurate, if even that. At 60%, they claim some of the more course hairs may require repeated treatments. It also requires holding a said hair for 1 to 3 mins. That's a long time for one hair and it becomes very tedious indeed. If there are thousands of hairs this can go on for months or even years with very limited results. Why not increase the current voltage to more quickly and effectively deaden the hair roots if the process even works at all? Maybe because this thing just doesn't work as effectively as they like to claim it does? It is a fairly expensive investment for something that has limited if any real success. Recommendation: "DON'T BUY IT".
