I suffered from annoying hair for along time especially on my face and belly. The Rio Laser was great because it targets lots of hair at once.. just like the salon versions. I have tried machines that only do 1 hair at a time before and I gave up quickly because it was so time consuming. The Rio isn't too bulky and it is very simple to use. Simply set it to the right level (patch test required) and drwa it along the skin where the hair is. All the lights and buzzers tell you when it is working. Although you can feel the hairs and even smell them burning... it really isn't a painfull sensation at all.
Don;t be fooled into thinking the hair will instantly be gone. It does take persistance and regular work however in 6 months of using it I have no hair in any of the places where I have used it.
Sorry but much more information is required to achieve higher ratings. If you add anything to this review in terms of additional detail and opinion, please do not hesitate to drop a quick message in my guestbook and I will come back and re-rate :)

Rio Scanning X60 laser hair removal system. It sends a laser beam to the hair follicle to permanently disable the root without affecting the surrounding area. The Rio X60 delivers an intense beam of light made up of a single wavelength that selectively targets the melanin in the hair follicle, causing it to absorb the laser energy. This results in the rapid heating of the hair follicle, which destroys the cells responsible for hair growth. If adequate heating is achieved, the follicle is permanently disabled resulting in permanent hair reduction. Your skin remains unaffected as it is essentially transparent to light in this wavelength range. Best results are achieved when the hair is actively growing and 6 treatments over 6 months are recommended for permanent hair reduction. Occasional touch ups may be required for stubborn hairs. This procedure is not suitable for Afro-Caribbean or black skin complexions and laser treatment is also ineffective in the removal of white or grey hair. Suitable for legs, arms underarms, bikini line and facial hair, the Rio Scanning X60 laser hair removal system has 3 selectable power levels for your skin type. Select your level and treatment mode then place the unit over the area to be treated. Press the laser button to start and repeat across the entire treatment area. Safety features are incorporated into the unit and it must be unlocked using a key, followed by a security button sequence. Targeting up to 60 hairs in just a few seconds, the Rio Scanning X60 laser hair removal system features a remover unit and wand with product guide for full usage instructions. Includes 2 year manufacturer guarantee.
