(Picture is armpit after 2 treatments & 10 days of not shaving.)
This review is for the Flash&Go Long Life Kit as well as the Flash&Go system itself. I purchased the Flash&Go system right after Christmas, and I've been using it as instructed since then. I did an extra treatment here and there for some areas (you are supposed to do the treatments every 2 weeks in the beginning). Treatments on the leg take some time and use up the majority of the flashes. The original system came with 5,000 flashes so when I went to reorder, I decided that it would be worth the money to get the Long Life (120,000 flashes) versus the regular refill cartridge (I believe only 1,000 flashes).
I've always wanted to get laser hair removal but prices were so high that I gave up on the idea. I came across the Flash&Go at a retail store and did some "research" (reading reviews online). I thought that if this machine actually works, it would be worth 10 times the retail price! The reviews were very mixed, so I almost passed this up. Then I figured I would just go for it! I had Christmas money to spend and I made sure I purchased through a store with a fair return policy.
After using for almost 2 months, I am already seeing results - especially the arms, armpits and legs. Bikini area hair seems more stubborn but I notice a slight difference. I couldn't go more than a day without shaving my armpits before. After just 2 treatments (plus an extra couple of zaps between treatments) and 10 days of not shaving, I couldn't believe the results. There were some hairs still present but 80-90% less. I wish I had a before picture of my armpits from just a day or 2 without shaving but I don't think anyone would want to see that!
To get results, you need to have the right skin type/hair color and a lot of patience. I found its easier to stay on track when you space it out (armpits/arms one day and bikini/legs another day). The legs are VERY time consuming especially if you treat upper and lower legs. Since its a lot of area to cover, it's easy to lose track on the legs. Try using the indentation lines from the machine as a guide. It's easy to skip areas or overlap areas. I figured I would overlap rather than miss areas to make sure I covered every inch.
I have fair skin and light brown/thick hair. I do have moles on areas of my body (which I was worried may cause a problem) but haven't had any issues - if anything, the "flash" is more intense but not painful at all, even on the highest setting. It's best to do this during the winter without a tan. I am hoping and thinking that I will be hair free in a few months.
I hope my review will help with your decision and my suggestion is to make sure seller has a fair return policy. If you thought this review was helpful, please give a "helpful" vote!!!
