1877Sephora's response is wrong. It states in the manual that gray hair and blonde hair are not responsive to me smooth.

Click the how to use tab on the Spehora page for this device and look under the precautions it clearly states:
-Do not use the device on areas with light hair color.

If you read the user manual available for download on their official website, it clearly states that this is only for use on dark hair. It may be used on most skin tones and hair types (fine, coarse, medium, etc.) but NOT all hair colors. In the warnings list it says "DO NOT use the device on areas with light hair color".

Question
Why can't it be used on the face?
Why exactly can't this be used on the face? Is it because it won't work on finer facial hair, or is it a safety issue? If so what is the issue? I'd like to find something to use on upper lip and hairline, and unless these things have been shown to blind people or cause brain damage or something I don't understand the difference. If they do have adverse effects with use on the face I wish they would list what they are. Anybody have any information? Thanks!

I think they had that on there because testing was not complete, but if you take a look at the sephora page for Me Smooth now it says you can use it on the face!

I just looked at the mesmooth.com website and it says it take 2 mins to do your face. They even sell an adapter to make it easier to use on your face.

Okay, I found the user guide on thier website and it says it can cause burning, blistering, and permanent lightening of the skin if used on the face. Also may cause severe migraines and seizures in people with epilepsy.

You can shave as often as you like. They recommend shaving before treatment to avoid discomfort. The impulse light cartridge is to reduce hair growth. You remove the hair first and then use the me smooth. I have no hair growth on my legs after 7 weeks.

It is not a permanent hair removal.
It's more like an epilator but then you have to shave first, then use this device, and after 7 treatments (once a week), you will only have to use the device once a month to maintain the areas hair-free.
I used a Braun b4 with great results. I switched to Me (thinking it was permanent!), I gave up after the 5th treatment as my hair became a forest due to shaving; and to wait 1 week to treat the underarm area during the summer...not an option for me anymore. I now have to return the Me. Is definitely not for me.

It is suppose to be a permanent hair removal system over time. The hair is suppose to become less and less as you continue to use the product. I have used it for about 6 weeks and yes I still get hair but I don't have to shave as often. So I will continue to use the ME device and see what happens. I hope this helps!

Does this cause ingrown hairs?
I typically have a problem with getting a lot of ingrown hairs when shaving and using Nair. I've tried lotions, pre-scrubs, etc. to prevent ingrown hairs but still tend to get them. Does this product also cause ingrown hairs?

I found my ingrown hairs disappeared while using me smooth. I am not sure if it is because the hair follicle is no longer creating hair or what, but I no longer have ingrowns under my arms or on my legs.

I'm on my 5th week of treatment and I have not gotten an ingrown hair with this product. Normally I get them occasionally from shaving. The flashes probably kill the bacteria that help cause ingrown hairs.

The Me Smooth is not working well on my underarms where my hair is VERY thick, however it has worked VERY VERY VERY well on my legs. My legs had thick dense hair as well, especially my bikini area, and the Me Smooth as removed all of this hair!

I used a Braun epilator with great results, but then I thought MeSmooth was a permanent hair removal- which is not. Anyway, I used the Smooth which involved shaving and my hair turned into a forest, and in a short time. With Braun I was hairless for a week and the hair was appearing less & less. After 5 treatments with Me I gave up, as especially under arm I can't cope with the amount of hair...not in the summer. I will return the Me and get back to Braun or look for an actual permanent hair removal.

I do not wear protective shades. I try to avoid looking at the light, but I have looked at it... I think it is more so a problem if you have history of epilepsy.

You can totally use you own razor, I personally wait one day after I use my own razor (because I like to get a super close shave) then I do the session. It seems to work better for me vs. the super close shave with the treatment right after. The razor cartridge does not give you a close shave its like a days growth length. It does make it easy if you don't want to take a shower. They also sell an epilator ( which plucks your hair out) on their site and it fits this model however please double check that with them as it has been a few months since I asked them that question in regards to the epilator attachment fitting this model.

You do not need the shaving cartridge, infact I think it is kind of useless. It does not work as well as a razor and makes a mess since you are shaving while using the machine and the hairs will fall to the ground.The shaver is not like a regular razor, it has a rotating bit which is powered by the machine which shaves your hair. I prefer shaving with a regular razor before using the Me Smooth.

Question
Can this be used with sugar/depilatories?
I noticed that you can use this product while shaving. I don't shave, I sugar certain areas like my arms and legs, and use depilatories on my face, chin, and armpits. Would I still be able to do these whilst using this device?

Yes you can, they even sell a depilator attachment on their website. You will need to use the device right after you wax/sugar/tweeze etc. I previously would wax exclusively however I found that since my skin feels very hot and irritated after a wax session it hurt more to do the laser treatment. I shave now, however 10x better than epilating as I have hardly any hair coming back and the growth is very slow at that.

You need to be shaving in order to see any results, it has something to do with the roots. When you wax (suger) you are fulling the roots and this machine kills the hair at the root. Therefore, if you pull the root there is no place to give the pulses. I hope it is simple and helpful.
