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)

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. Using a light wavelength of
808nm enables treatment of relatively dar
