.***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!!!!!
