Before your first use, you have to charge the device for 2 hours and then activate it either online or by phone. Then, you have to be clean shaven before starting the treatment. In the first 3 months of treatment, I should be doing this twice a month. Then, I am to continue this once a month until the 6th to 8th month. After that will be occasional maintenance treatments. You're supposed to spot test treatment areas to determine what level to use the laser on. There's 5 laser settings. There's a slight pinching-plucking feeling as the laser beeps and says, "I'm done. Move to the next spot." Since I don't like waxing, you can tell I'm a bit sensitive to pain. This was slightly uncomfortable for me as I moved the settings up because I really was pushing my pain threshold. I can't handle a 3. Depending on where I was doing, level 2 was also a tad painful. For example, on my armpit, there's areas where I don't feel anything on a 2 and areas where a 2 can cause discomfort. I have heard that your skin gets desensitized to this as time goes on so not to worry. I could, however, handle level 5 just fine on my legs. After the first month of treatment, I don't expect to see much change yet. You can shave between treatments but don't pluck or wax. So far, I'm okay with it, having completed two treatments separated by two weeks. Other than a bit of warm in some areas, I never suffered from any redness or after effects from the laser. Stay tuned for next month's post so I can tell you how it's going!
