Banish Those Unwanted Hairs! HoMedics Me My Elos Quartz Review

Everyone knows that it is such a chore to remove those unwanted hairs, right? Well, no more i say! I jumped at the chance of trying a NEW way of permanently removing hair with the HoMedics Me My Elos Quartz*

I have always wanted permanent hair removal and there were TWO main reasons that put me off. One was the price, as it can range from hundreds, if not thousands of pounds. The other reason was because of my skin colour, I was never the right candidate because there was a possibility i could have left with scarring or pigmentation problems. This was disappointing to me because it meant that only people with lighter skins could have permanent hair removal.

Over recent years, many machines have come onto the market and these are the ones suitable for home use, but again i had the same problem......the machines were not suitable to be used on someone of my colouring!

I have always wanted to banish those unwanted hairs, mainly on my legs, underarms and bikini. It is sometimes so tedious to have to keep going to the salon to go get waxed!

The HoMedics Me My Elos is ideal for the following reasons:
  • Suitable to use on all skin tones.
  • Full body treatment can be done within 30 minutes! 
  • Up to 89% hair reduction after only four treatments.
  • Suitable to use on the widest range of skin tones.
  • Very easy to use and in the comfort of your own home. No 'stop and stamp', just use it in a gliding motion as if you were shaving or epilating.
  • No gel needed, prior to treatment.
  • No pain!
  • Long life with 100,00 flashes, which would last approximately six years.

In the box, you get:
  • The device
  • Power cord
  • User guide and quick start guide
  • Cleaning brush
  • Warranty card
  • Protective goggles (for facial treatments)
  • Protective cap
How does this work? The pulse of elos RF (radio frequency) and IPL (intense pulsed light) is emitted for a fraction of a second and then the IPL energy is converted to thermal energy. This heats up the hair shaft and hair follicle. The RF energy is attracted to the pre-heated follicle, which heats it further and permanently disables the follicle and prevents re-growth. 

So, when do you use this? Perform the first treatments every two weeks for six weeks. After the initial treatments, a top up treatment is required and this varies on an individual basis but you can expect up to three months between treatments. 

You can see how it fits nicely into my palm, so it is not overly big. It is also useful that it is not cordless, as it is sometimes a pain when you start your treatment and then the battery dies!

The HoMedics Me My Elos retails for £499, however Boots now have £100 off. It is exclusive to Boots and can be purchased HERE
