Can permanent Hair Removal happen at home? With new devices gaining approval from the FDA and hitting the market, the answer might be yes.

Over the summer, Veet sent me one of their new Infini’Silk Ipl devices to try, and I wrote about many of the fears I had with having a salon-strength device at home.

My Fears of Using Veet Infini’Silk

What was I afraid of? Well, first I was afraid that it would hurt. And I was also afraid because it was summer, and I was out at the beach – light-based hair removal is a no-no on tanned skin, and for good reason. Light-based hair removal technology relies on the contrast between paler skin and darker hair, which is why most of these devices won’t work for those with darker skin tones. Or redheads.

But for those of us with paler skin and dark hair this could be awesome. So even before my tan completely faded, I decided to start testing the device on an area that doesn’t tan – my underarms. Well, one at least – I decided to work on one but not the other, to see if there was any difference.

The Hair Removal Process

Keep in mind that this is not an instant process. A normal hair growth cycle takes 18-24 months, and new hairs come up in that time as well. The Infini’Silk treatments, like any IPL or even laser treatments, are done over the course of several months. So I would be looking to see if there was a reduction of hair. The guide suggests the first four treatments be done every other week. I thought I would either do that or do them every week – mostly because it’s easier to remember. But first I had to see if they were painful.

The underarm area is really sensitive! I was worried about the pain. But the treatment was surprisingly painless. I could feel the heat, and at level 5 would notice a little sting on some areas. But nothing that would stop me from doing another treatment. There was a little sensitivity afterwards – I’d wait about 20-30 minutes before putting on a close-fitting shirt.

There is a smell of burning hair, though. Which I don’t really mind – it makes me think that it’s working. And it makes me glad that there’s a safety feature that stops the device’s usage on skin that’s too dark. You won’t want to use this on any areas with moles, either.

Results Using the Veet Infini’Silk

I’ve done four treatments so far, with the first two a week apart, and the others two weeks apart. Not a full several-month treatment, but I am already seeing results – my left underarm has about 15% less visible hair. The Infini’Silk, along with other light-based hair removal methods, does not promise full removal. But even if brightly dyed armpit hair is a thing now, I think I’ll keep on with my removal. Call me old-fashioned.

WIN an Infini’Silk Pro for Yourself!

My experience with the Infini’Silk has been a good one, and I’ll be continuing my use of the device through the winter. I mentioned in my earlier post that winter is an ideal time to start the process, since day trips to the beach are less frequent. Now Veet is offering a giveaway Infini’Silk Pro, which is the advanced version of what I used. Advanced how? It’s a sturdier device, with interchangeable light cartridges. So you can share with a friend (there are two in the kit) and even buy replacement cartridges. It also looks cooler, like a Star Trek weapon, whereas the original looks more like a computer mouse on steroids. The technology and power are the same, though I suspect the Pro will last longer.

A few details: Contest open to residents aged 18 or over, from the United States only. The prize will be sent to the winner by representatives of Veet. The winner is responsible for safe use of the product. The contest ends December 29, 2014. Good Luck!

  • Heather December 23, 2014 at 3:45 pm

    So is there a reason to order one version vs the other?

    • Meli Pennington December 23, 2014 at 6:09 pm

      If you just need the device for one person or a small area, go with the regular one. The Pro has interchangeable heads which can be replaced, making it good for multiple users or long-term use. The light heads do burn out, but I don’t know after how long…

  • Mariaelena December 23, 2014 at 11:26 pm

    I like that it’s more affordable than going to do laser hair removal at a spa. Fingers crossed!

  • Wanda Patterson December 24, 2014 at 4:16 pm

    I love the way they remove hair. To have silky smooth legs for weeks at a time would make me feel like a model. Also it would make my legs feel sexy to my husband.

  • Alison December 28, 2014 at 3:19 am

    I love them! I have sensitive skin that reacts badly to just about every kind of hair removal I’ve tried. Shaving, waxing, and epilating all give me bumps that look like a rash or spider bites. This would be so much less painful!

  • jenn giannetto December 28, 2014 at 11:14 am

    It seems like a great product and I am excited to try it.
