By far, everyone had the best results with the FiveMinSkin handset (known for their clinical devices, their at-home devices are also perfect for permanent hair removal).

A fan favorite since their company began, it features adjustable power levels, and glide mode - allowing for a complete laser hair removal session in just 5 minutes. For all of us, it took just about 8 sessions using it once per week to stop unwanted hair growth.

  • Removes both blonde & dark hair.
  • Costs ​$300.30 at standard price.
  • With glide mode - sessions take only around 5 minutes rather than the standard 20-30 minutes.
  • Completely safe for hair removal on all skin types, not effective only for white hairs.
  • It took us just about 8 uses to stop unwanted hair growth.

Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Unprofessional to say the least

Long story short I don’t have my order or refund, they have been investigating 2 weeks already what happened whilst i was told it was signed by me when I wasn't even in the country and my name had been misspelled on the signature too. I have to chase up updates despite the fact i requested and was told I will be updated daily. Quite a lot of time it takes, given a lot of MY money is at stake. They don’t give impression that they care at all. Staff handle matters in unprofessional manner too, on social media platform they disclosed for public what I ordered and for how much!

messi_92 Used a pregame speech about the Lion King to fire up the squad for a championship
c.shana.doowop I no longer have hair growth on my legs, just not having to think about shaving makes it worth every single penny.
blackw00d How does this work? Burns hair at the follicle?
blackw00d It took over $2,800 in total fees for my legs there and with this was able to do the same thing to my arms at home.
messi_92 @blackw00d It’s ridiculous what they charge for a single hair removal treatment
blackw00d @messi_92 Clinical laser hair removal is faster though.
mess61012 Good movie if Alex is talking the talk he has to walk the walk. #seelionking

“IPL laser hair removal treatment is perfect for permanently removing hair if you don’t want to go to a clinic. The best thing about 5minSkin’s IPL Handset is that it is relatively painless.

“Unlike waxing, shaving, & epilators, 5minSkin laser hair removal targets the hair follicle to prevent future growth. It’s an excellent way to bring a professional, in-office treatment to the comfort of your home.”

★★☆☆☆ 5minskin IPL Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on August 22, 2022 Verified Purchase My Kenzzi arrived so quickly! Its a great price for an item my entire family can use. No matter how well I prepped my bikini area in the past, or how expensive my razor and razor gel were, I would ALWAYS have razor burn. Hoping this will alleviate about 30 yrs of razor burn trauma, for good!!! 9 people found this helpful

★★★★★ Best product so far Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on November 24, 2022 Verified Purchase I purchased the Kenzie on July 31, 2022 (15 uses) and by November 23, 2022 it stopped working. That’s a lot of money to spend on a product that does not last 4 months which was not enough time to even see results. Can’t return it either. 5 people found this helpful

    How does this work? Burns hair from the follicle? I've tried laser hair removal at a clinic & it was perfect for me.

    Clinic laser hair removal is faster to stop hair growth, Silk'n & 5minskin are about the same.

    No skin irritation, i've tried 3 of these devices. Hair finally stopped growing back on the armpits & hasn't grown back for a month.

    The worst part about shaving is having to think about it. It's why i went to a clinic & spent thousands to remove hair permanently, & later I used these type of at-home devices to get the same results on a different area.
