I bought this system around four months ago and, after using it religously (i.e approx 2 to 3 times per week) I am now starting to see results. I am fair skinned and bought the laser kit to target the dark hair on my upper lip. I used the highest setting and found it to be really gentle and no blistering or anything like that, however you must be careful not to overdo it or yes you will be burned. Follow the instructions carefully but, as has been said on several other reviews now, it takes a long time so you need to be committed to it. I also think its effectivenss varies from person to person depending on skin type so if you olive or dark skin or want to treat light hairs then it may not be the product for you. I have also in the past had electrolysis treatments and wish I had of tried this product first (electrolysis can be effective but its hugely painful and you need to find a highly recommended professional to do it or else you risk skin damage if the therapist isnt very experianced, ESPECIALLY if the area being treated is on the face)

Features: Three treatment modes Targets up to 60 hairs in just a few seconds* Permanently disables hair root 2 year guarantee *based on facial hair Laser Hair Removal Explained Skin and hair contains a natural pigment called melanin. The level of melanin in your skin is the primary determinant of your skin colour and is responsible for causing skin to tan during sun exposure. Both skin and hair follicles contain different concentrations of melanin. Lasers work by delivering an intense beam of light made up of a single wavelength. The Rio Scanning X60 Laser Hair Remover operates at a wavelength that selectively targets the melanin in the hair follicle causing the hair follicle to absorb the laser energy. The laser energy absorbed results in the rapid heating of the hair follicle. This heat destroys the cells responsible for hair growth. If adequate heating is achieved the follicle is permanently disabled resulting in permanent hair reduction. The skin remains unaffected as it is essentially transparent to light in this wavelength range. It is only possible to treat a hair follicle when there is a hair present and the best results are achieved when the hair is actively growing. For permanent hair reduction six treatments are recommended over a six month period. Occasional touch up treatments may be required for stubborn hairs. Suitable Skin Types Melanin in the epidermis also absorbs the energy and limits the depth of penetration of the laser light into the skin.
