I don't have one yet, but i am going to purchase one. I have noticed that knowone has mentioned the fact that hair grows in different stages-3 to be exact. One is a resting stage, when you use any product like this, if your hair is in the resting phase, it will probably not work on these hairs (because they are in the resting phase.) But at the same time some hairs are in the resting phase, other hairs are grown out and the laser is working on these hairs, so these hairs may go, but you will eventually have the hairs in the resting stage grow and that is probably where your new hair growth is coming from. Just wanted to point this out, that is probably why women spend so much money and time going back for professional laser hair removal, it will probably take quite awhile to get the hair to grow back softer or not at all. Oh by the way the Active growth phase (Anagen) lasts for 3-6 years and the Resting phase (Talogen) lasts 5-6 weeks. So it's just something that will take time and patience. God Bless

A friend did one treatment for me for a couple of coarse hairs on my arm/wrist. They never came back and that was before Halloween.
Hope this helps.

Okay, an update: I've done 4 treatments, starting with level 1 and working up one level with each treatment to level 4, as directed. I'm seeing results!
After 6 weeks (3 treatments) my legs seemed much less stubbly between shaves, and yesterday I noticed that there are small areas on my legs with NO hair! Amazing! The hair seems to be less dense even on parts of my legs where there is still hair growth. Bikini line results are even more dramatic, but underarm progress seems slower. I'm going to do my 5th treatment this week, on level 5.
So, patience pays off: when used as directed, Silk'n does work! It just takes a little time--at least 6 weeks. I'm really glad that I stuck with it, and I'd encourage other users to give the device a chance and not to be discouraged if results are not immediate. This product clearly is not designed for instant gratification, but as a long-term solution.
So, I'm thrilled, and I hope that my experience helps others not to get discouraged, since this device is insanely expensive.

I jumped to level 5 right away. It does not hurt me and I think that it is a waste of time to use the lower levels. I saw results within days. If you did not see results I bet it was because you did not go hight enough or are not using it properly. It does not work great on my bikini area because it is hard to get skin taught under the light there and my hair there is more sparse and less dark.

I'm like you--two treatments done, and no results yet. I started on level one, then jumped to three. My next treatment will be on setting five, and if I don't see any results, I'll be returning it then.
I'm curious to hear the answer to this question myself. I'm disappointed so far but hoping it may still start working for me on a higher setting.
