Countless times, I’ve visited my gyno, pointed at my vagina, and said, “I think I have herpes.” While deep in my private parts, my GYN would laugh and say, “You have an infected ingrown hair.” That’s because after years of waxing, shaving and trimming, this hairy Latina (many of us are) now has folliculitis. So my doctor recommended I either stop grooming, take medication for folliculitis, or try laser hair removal. The latter seemed like the best option. With my panties back on I researched laser hair removal treatments. And Lord have mercy it’s expensive! Luckily, I found a happy and more economical solution: the Silk’n Flash&Go.
The Silk’n Flash&Go uses advanced-light pulse technology for permanent hair removal. It is FDA approved and easy to use.
How the Flash&Go works:
Just plug it into your outlet and let the machine warm up. You’ll know it’s ready when a light flashes. Then, you simply put the Flash&Go wherever you want the hair removed, and pull the trigger. The light will pulse and you will feel warmth and a quick snap. Does it hurt? It depends on your threshold for pain. It hurt me a little but I am a wimp!
When you’ll see results:
It really depends on how coarse your hair is and how hairy you are. I believe it will take me over 3 months to see less hair. The larger the area, the longer it takes to see results.
A note for dark-skinned Latinas:
The Flash&Go is only safe if your skin tone falls under Types I-IV in the Fitzpatrick Skin Tone Classification Scale.
Please note: if your skin tone is too dark, the Flash&Go disables treatment and won’t work.
The cost & special discounts:
The Flash&Go currently costs $199.99, but I have some discounts for you just in time for Cyber Monday and Christmas! Here they are:
