I like that this can be used on all areas of my body that have body hair. I just followed the directions in the instruction manual that they provided and I was able to use it that same day. I personally like using the safety glasses because I feel just a little bit safer doing it by myself when I take all of the necessary precautions. I recommend the SilkQueen.
I used to go to a spa to get laser hair removal but could not wait the 6-8 weeks between treatments that they recommended there. So I bought this SilkQueen IPL and I use it every other week and I am seeing a huge difference. My hairs are beginning to fall out and grow back much slower. I love that I can do this while watching TV and do it whenever I have time, including really late at night when I just cant sleep. I'm excited to keep using this to see how much better it will work even from now!
I love that the SilkQueen works comparably to a spa treatment but it doesn't cost me $1000. It feels like it works well. I have an olive complexion with dark hair and it seems to be working beautifully!
This is more convenient than going to a local spa or salon. It works really really well on my legs! I saw a reduction in hair growth after several treatments, but it was well worth the price! I have brown skin, and I felt that it worked well still), even though it says it wouldn't.
Already loving it after just 3 treatments!
This was actually really a friendly device to use and easy to setup. I was worries this would be confusing but it has been pretty easy to use and easy directions to follow. I like that it will not dispense zaps unless the device feels that it is safe to use (it checks to make sure that the skin color and/or hair color and checks if you are holding the device against the skin correctly). I have done a lot of body waxing, so I am not unfamiliar to pain, but I am so glad that this does not hurt me when using it. I am only using this every four weeks, so I know that I will see slower progress, but I am loving it so far! Great product, and great results!
I did a little science experiment where I only used this on one side of my body. I have light skin and dark hair, and it worked well. My arms have lighter hair, and on the side that I used the SilkQueen I did not see a huge difference. However, I have only used it three times. I may see different results when I use it more. I am trying to be patient, but its hard sometimes when I am anxious to see the results!
I have tried everything, including, creams, waxing, professional laser hair removal, shaving, plucking, you name it. I love that I can use this at home with my three children under 5 still at home all day with me. It gives me a good way to wind down after they go to bed or while they are taking a nap. The best part of the SilkQueen is definitely that it can be used at home whenever. I like the cooling mode because my skin doesn't hurt after I use this on my legs. My legs use to hurt so bad after shaving, so this is a godsend! I also like the packaging and felt that I got my money's worth. After 5 treatments (about 10 weeks), I am seeing my hair reduced by about 40%! This is amazing, and I cannot wait after the full 12 weeks! I am very very pleased with this.
I have had this for 6 weeks and I'm happy I bought this!
I like the auto option on this device which I didn't see on any other devices when I was researching. It makes it so much more efficient to not have to press the button every. single.time. i also like the cooling mode that you can use so that it doesn't irritate or burn your skin. A great investment.
I loved using this product because it was really user friendly with the touch screen and I felt that it was high quality and I got my money's worth. It feels so nice to be able to wear anything on a night out after a long day at work and not need to worry about shaving in the short hour I have at home. Definitely worth it!
I have used this continuously every other week since June. and I am loving how it is working. I use it on power level 5, random hairs on my face have almost completely disappeared or some peach fuzz will grow back, but very slowly. I definitely recommend this product!
Got this as a birthday gift from my husband and I am so glad he did! I have always been super hairy and have always been ashamed of it. I did my pubic hair, and both my husband and I love it haha. Very very pleased with this device and how much it has helped me.
The SilkQueen gets warm if not on the snowflake thing, but it doesn't even hurt. I like the attachments for your bikini area, armpits, and face. I used it on my face, and I have a but lighter hair there and saw no difference in two treatments, but my daughter has really dark hair and saw a small difference in the softness of her hair, it isn't as prickly! It was easy for us to use on each other or to use it by ourselves. I had my daughter use it on the back of my legs, because I always miss some hairs back there, and I am anxious to see results! Great product, can''t wait to see the end results.
Shaving everyday is just ridiculous so I bought this. It's a very high end unit which you know when you get it. The packaging is very nice and the device feels very luxurious when you hold it. I bought this mainly for my manly facial hair on my girly face and it has been doing well so far. The previously thick and grotesque hair are coming back softer and finer than before, It only took me a few minutes to treat my face and I look forward to using it every time now as I know I'm one step closer to losing my horrible man hair.
As a lot of other reviews have mentioned, this is a slow process and you just need to be patient. I have a lot of hair, and I noticed a real difference about 3 months into using the SilkQueen. I used it every other week all over my body. 5 STARS!!! Cheers.
This is saving me so much money!! I was doing touch up treatments at a spa after having already gotten laser hair removal from them. They were charging me $100 a month and that didn't even cover my entire body. I purchased the SilkQueen to use for my touch ups instead and it has been such a blessing! I have found it to be just as effective and for so much cheaper as well! I think it's a great combo to get laser hair removal at a spa and to then use this for long term touch ups and save that money!
I have excruciating carpal tunnel and this has saved me. I love the automatic flashing that helps me as well. I don't need to press down on the button every time. I don't have to tweeze my facial hair every night and this is way less pain both on my face and in my hands. I feel free!
I have only used this four times, but I like how it feels when I use it. I will continue to use this to see results.
I am liking this so far even though I've only used it three times. I started on a low power level just to get used to it, and it never burned my skin, so I will continue to turn up the power level and hope to see what new results I get!
Just make sure that your shave your hair before or else it hurts like HELL!! just be patient with it all and you will see great results!
This product is really beautiful and I love the box that it comes in as well. It makes me feel even better that I bought it! There is a slight noise. but there is no pain for me. I did use the cooling mode and that felt really nice against my skin. I'm really glad that I chose to go with this laser hair removal device and not other ones that I had seen before.
I feel like SkinVibe thought of everything when making the packaging. You get everything in one box, and I don't need to go back onto the website to buy glasses or a cleaning cloth, its all there for me! I didn't think that the instructions provided were the best though, and would have liked to see a "how-to" video on the website. I hope they will make one soon. I did eventually figure out how to use it though! I like the size of the window because I feel that I can narrow in on the area that I want to focus on easier. I like that I can switch between different power levels for different parts of my body. I am noticing a reduction in hair growth and I can't wait to use it more and see the end results! Overall very happy.
Everything I am going to write in my review is stated in the instruction manual, but I feel like it's important to restate it here. You MUST shave the area bare before using an IPL or it will burn the hair and be extremely painful. You will not notice any progress after 3 treatments, but you will after 6-7, so be patient and keep using it! Wait 1-2 weeks between treatments just as the directions state. Some people say it doesn't bother their skin, but you don't want to be the person whose skin it does hurt/bother because you didn't follow the directions. You also much have light skin and dark hair for the product to effectively work. In all of my personal research there is no laser hair removal device that effectively works with dark skin or blonde hair. This is not permanent but it is a nice way to get good results at home!
I'm glad that I went into buying this knowing it would never permanently get rid of my hair, and I really like that I can use it as a form of maintenance rather than thinking of it as a chore like i did with shaving.
