Above is a video from Chic.TV where they talked about the Silk’n Sensepil with Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery professional Dr. Tine Alster.
The Silk’n Sensepil has been designed to be used mainly on peoples legs, arms, bikini line, and underarms. Using it on any of these areas is considered completely safe and highly effective.
Outside of these most common and prescribed areas it has also been used by some on the chin, face, and pubic region. When using the Silk’n Sensepil on ones face the user’s manual directs individuals to only use it from the cheek line down. It also is important that when using it on your face you are extremely cautious in being sure avoid setting off the pulse anywhere near your eyes. As with all laser lights, the Sensepils HPL lighting is known to be extremely harmful on the eyes.
As for the other parts of the body where hair grows it is rather inconclusive as to how safe and effective it is. Since the Sensepil isn’t technically made for other areas of the body we cannot get confirmation from the company about its safety and effectiveness in these other areas. Due to this all we have to go on is user reviews. Some user reviews we have found claim that the SeneEpil does work on other areas but again this is unconfirmed.
Use the Sensepil at your own risk in areas outside of what is recommended in the owner’s manual.
Some people who use the Sensepil get frustrated when they don’t see results immediately but users need to remember that the Silk’n Sensepil is a laser light-based home hair removal device and therefore it will not provide immediate results. Most people do not understand that laser hair removal is a more permanent solution but takes time to occur as opposed to something like waxing that removes hair immediately but ends with the hair growing back.
Instead of immediate results with the Sensepil you should expect to start seeing some results roughly two weeks after your first treatment. What generally happens is that hair continues to grow for roughly two weeks but then becomes weak at the root and begins to falls out on its own.
After this you may notice some regrowth but generally this is from different hairs. What happens with our bodies is that hair grows in three different stages with each stage being different hairs growing. Since the Sensepil (and all laser hair removal treaments) only works on hairs that are currently growing two-thirds of your hairs didn’t receive any effects from your first treatment and therefore subsequent treatments must be used once these hairs begin to grow.
Overall, you should expect to see some reduction in thickness after 2-4 weeks but in order to get the full results you need to be patient and should expect to wait quite a bit longer.
