    I have the Silkin bellalite system from Costco. Was the best purchase by far. I used to pay $200 for French bikini & arm pits on a 6 week basis at a professional dermatologist. I get the same results from the bellalite with the convenience of doing at home and the ability to do my legs and whatever else. The only draw back is you have to do it yourself and inflict stinging like pain....but what the hell, you do that daily when working out, so no biggy!

    Your bikini line is my neck. The little freekin things come out, and then get scared and turn back in...aka ingrown. I thought about getting my neck done. The chin up is okay to shave, the neck sucks.

    How expensive was this and how long does it last between treatments?

    Went today for the first time since last summer and although i had been consistent prior to todays treatment it really hurt unlike the previous times! I didnt know what to think! Ive been getting waxed/lazer for years!!! Im spanish and italian background so ive been religiousl removing my unwanted hair prior to my adult years unfortunately:-/ but i noticed this year my hair is way more stubborn and coarse! It really hurt when the procedure was being done today and she had to go back to a very low low setting as if i never had been in before! Is it because of the excess testosterone??

    I've heard electrolysis is more painful. Is this true since you've tried both?

    its nothing. i find it to be no big deal at all. it takes more time to work a bigger area i imagine bc it goes hair by hair, but the price is worth it and for stubborn hair, it works better IMO.

    So with electrolysis how long do you see the results lasting for? Pf course while in competition mode our hair grows back at a much faster rate, but if you get a treatment done how long before you see hair growing back?
