Ordered this specifically to use on facial hair, and the writeup/pictures seem to indicate that it can. The Q&As and the specs indicate this can be used on all skin types, which is true if you're using it ONLY below the neck. The instructions indicate that it is ONLY for use below the neck. AND the information indicates that it is NOT effective if you have light skin AND light colored fine hair (which I do have).
Also, the 3 pages of safety warnings DO not tell you that you should wear eye protection (and none is furnished with the unit). Perhaps that's because, despite what is shown in the pictures and in the writeup, use on your face is contraindicated.
Info available on the web indicates that anyone using IPL (this unit is an IPL+RF unit) should wear eye protection, as using the unit anywhere on your body. That's because if you're looking at the area that you're treating, which you most likely would be doing if you're following the instructions on using the unit, even if the area being treated is not on your face/neck or near your eyes, you're running the risk of permanent and irreversible retinal/vision damage.
As for skin/hair type, it appears that this works best (or at all) if you have light skin and coarse dark hair. Effectiveness if you have blonde, light brown, or gray hair is dubious, and even if you have dark hair, if your hair is fine, it also appears that this unit won't work for you.
In addition, though the writeup and literature indicates this can be used on all skin types, when you read the fine print, it says it WON'T work for Skin Type 6 (black/dark brown skin tone). And, apparently because the contrast between skin tone and hair color is important, it appears that it might not work well for anyone with darker skin and dark hair, either (skin types >3 or 4 and with dark hair might need to look into this further, as well).
Suggest that the promo literature clarify these issues. It appears that if you carefully read the instructions, fall within the "treatment parameters" regarding skin type, hair color/type, area of your body that you wish to treat, AND wear appropriate eye protection, this would be a good little unit (it appears to be well made and easy to use).
Otherwise, suggest that you give this a pass.
Easy to use, no pain!! And within the few times I've used it I really can tell that there is less hair. It is a process that will certainly take a bit of time, but with the results I'm seeing so far, I am happy to take that time. I'm in love with this.

How many pulses in an average session? What size area will a 6000 pulse cartridge remove hair? One leg, both legs. etc.?woodysfan1 on Sep 11, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hi woodysfan1, the unit pulses every other second while in operation. One cartridge should last the 7 treatment recommendation but that depends on how many body parts you are applying the unit to and which parts of the body you are treating. This unit has different requirement times for different body parts. We hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 11, 2013
