For Permanent Hair Reduction Do You Recommend ELOS At-Home?

For permanent hair reduction, what do you think of this new technology (ELOS professional hair removal system “me” from TANDA) of combining RSF and IPL laser in one. They claim that they don’t need a strong IPL laser since what the IPL can’t remove the RSF wave light will finish off in the same instance THUS not needing safety glasses. Does the idea seem realistic. Its affordable at $395.00 and can pulse 54000 times aprox 90min of use. They also claim it's nothing like the no-no used to control.

In recent years, a number of devices have been developed to seek to provide patients with the ability to achieve hair removal at home. These devices are based on similar laser technology to target the hair follicle for destruction. The evidence behind these devices is limited to small, uncontrolled studies. The risk of eye injuries with improper use is also a real concern, despite their claims.
