Permanent hair removal with the E-One

Now that it is officially summer in the City the layers are starting to be peeled off and more often than should probably be allowed the world has to be subjected to my pale legs. Now pale is in itself not a crime, but pale legs that have not been properly 'mowed' are an all together more hideous concern of mine.

Let's talk hair removal ladies. Not a very sexy topic, but one I feel needs to be addressed every now and then so that no woman feels that she is alone in the fight!

I have recently started a laser hair removal course at my local salon. I was so completely fed up with my sensitive skin constantly being red and irritated after shaving, or the painful ingrown hairs from waxing/ epilating that enough was enough! I have so far had two sessions on my underarms (one every 4 weeks) and the results are noticeable (ie. 10 days after laser you can literally pull the hairs out with no pain and fingers crossed they won't come back). The treatment itself was not painful, and since I am the biggest wimp I can wholeheartedly say that all I felt was a little heat, no rubber bands snapping. So far, so good! I shall update you all in a couple of months, but I think (and pray) it is working. However, the treatments in salon are expensive (some places charge £2000 just for lower legs!) and it is quite a hassle, especially if you want to do a larger part of your body as you will be stuck with your beautician for hours. I am not even to go into the other disadvantages.. all I'm saying is that some people get hair in strange, strange places :(.

So with hairy toes on my mind I was excited to be invited to a presentation by E-Swin, the makers of a new revolutionary at home IPL (intense pulsed light) hair removal system called the E-One.

The system itself is quite a beast, it is nothing like the versions available in Boots currently as it aims to be salon quality. If you think about it the heat produced is immense so it has to be large to be able to cool itself down (which makes me skeptical of the tiny Phillips version.. how could it possibly fire a laser powerful enough?).

The E-One promises to not only reduce, but permanently remove hair and after an average of 10 to 12 treatments (approx. 2 months apart), only 1 or 2 uses per year should be required to keep your skin clear and hair free.  It is also very versatile and can even be used on the face. The touch screen lets you select your skin and hair type so you can easily customise it to different parts of your body.

Now comes the big question.. does it hurt? I can honestly say after trying it on my arm a couple of times it didn't hurt at all! All you feel is a slight heating sensation which disappears in a flash (no pun intended). It didn't irritate or burn my skin and there wasn't even any visible redness afterwards. I have also been assured that this system has gone through vigorous tests, which have shown no skin irritations on 100% of users (even with 30% higher energy than required). The E-One was launched in France in 2007 and, even with a full money back guarantee not a single person returned it, which implies that it works and people are seeing results!

The only issues I have with it are that it is a little bit cumbersome as you have to hold the sides in and then push it into your skin for the flash to 'fire' and you have to wait a few seconds for it reset itself after every flash. This would not be a problem if you were doing a small area, but I can imagine the legs would take quite a long time, still I don't see this as a major concern. The real drawback for me is the price.

The smallest package is priced at £1,450 and includes
  • E-One device and preinstalled Optic' cartridge
  • 1 pair of glasses
  • 2 year guarantee
  • 1 working pen
  • 1 gel bottle
  • 1 optical spray
  • 1 guide plate
  • 1 Sticker patch (for covering moles etc.) 
Yes, it is much cheaper than a salon treatment (you could do your whole body, your friend's, your boyfriend's!), but it is a large commitment to make. I am therefore very much comforted by their 6 months money back guarantee, which lets you thoroughly test out the system for a long enough period of time to see whether it really works for you and if it doesn't you can send it back and get a refund, no questions asked. I can honestly tell you I am very tempted to start saving. Not only does it work out cheaper than waxing etc. but after the initial time and money invested you are left with real results! Just the thought of never having a rash after shaving, or never having to go through the eye watering pain of waxing makes it worth it for me.

If you are curious about the E-One you can their website here (it is full of information and testimonials and explains the technology, process of usage and expected results really well).

What do you think? Is it worth making such an investment or are you happy to pick up your weapon, (insert any torture devise applicable - razor, wax or epilator) and carry on the fight?


  1. this is such a great invension.

  2. Oh wow, you have almost totally convinced me to start saving too, Natalya! I have been plagued with furry arms since I was born... fortunately it's not dark hair, but it is LONG! I have always been embarrassed by it, but never been able to afford the amount of laser treatments it would take to get my whole arms done (it goes allll the way up, and even onto my shoulders!). This device is very intriguing to me for these very reasons. With it I could zap my arms, AND still be able to do the rest of my peach fuzzed body. Hmmmm... you've given me a lot to think about. :)

  3. god sounds great but so expensive. I need to get rid of all my body hair. I do not need any :P


  4. My sister and I went shares on the Boots one - and that has made very noticeable difference - plus is A LOT cheaper than the one you suggest - I would advice going for that one... I've used it about 10 times and now only have to shave underarms once every couple of weeks (for example)

  5. I love the sound of this product. I know it's more expensive than the Boots product but it seems very different if you actually read into it. I think the biggest difference (looking at the websites) is that it's for permanent hair removal as opposed to slowed regrowth so after 10 treatments you are hair free completely so no shaving at all which would be amazing! Also you can use it on fake tanned and suntanned skins and light blonde hairs which the Boots one can't be used on. I'm blonde and couldn't live without fake tan so really important for me! Looks like the Boots one is good for general hair removal but this one is more like having a salon at home. Think I might see if I can go halves on it with a friend. You can replace the catridges if the flashes run out so could use it on lots of friends so worth seeing if a few friends could go in on it I suppose. xx

  6. Actually I was searching for medical uses of laser hair removal in all search engines. I personally thank you for posting this blog and the information regarding laser hair removal was really useful to me. I am looking forward for more details in your blog regarding the laser hair removal or this.

  7. Nice and Gorgeous device :) I am wondering if it is a permanent hair removal device?

  8. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.permanent hair removal

  9. I had tried a laser removal last month but I was not satisfied with the process and the effects of it. Good thing theirs new
    IPL HAIR REMOVAL today and the result is really great, full of satisfaction and
    the process is fast. It is different from laser hair removal, really different because this is not a laser but a light flash only.
    IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) hair removal uses a broad-based light (non-laser source) of multiple wavelengths. Its goal is to target the melanin
    (color) of the hair follicle and shaft to disable hair growth.You don't have to be worried about this new hair removal because this is very safe and very
    effective. To everyone who doesn't experienced yet in IPL hair removal, try it and see the real difference among all hair removal technology.

  10. We all know that nowadays, technology rules beyond expectations and one of the click technology today is the
    Intense Pulsed Light systems are different from lasers in that they can deliver hundreds of wavelengths (or colours)
    in each burst of light. Certain filters are used that target these flashes of light so that they can work in as precise a
    way as lasers. Simply, the burst of light to the hair causes damage to the follicle in the same way as a laser.
    It is a technology aimed at producing light of high intensity during a very short period of time. It involves specific lamps together
    with capacitors whose rapid discharge provides the high energy required.
    It is most commonly employed by medical practitioners and estheticians, is a method of hair removal from the body.
    It involves the use of a specially constructed xenon flash lamp and focusing optics.For those who wanted to try do not afraid because this
    machine is very safe, safer and nicer than the laser. I'd tried it and the result was great, perfect for hair removal. Try it too!

  11. Hi JOHN,
    You can try
    Permanent Hair Removal It's effective! Less pain. Comfortable. I had proven it.
    Look for more details.

  12. it is a mind blowing device, thanks for information give in blog.

  13. Mostly womens are like that hair removal equipments. This type of hair remove is pretty cool awesome. i think its better for me.

  14. I know laser hair removal sessions spaced one month apart to see 70-80 percent reduction in hair growth. Hair reduction procedures can be performed by either lasers.Both man woman can be used the product. For best results.

  15. I say it is a total investment, this E-One! It would make you pay big money upfront, but in the long run, it's going to save you up from frequent visits to the salon.

    D'you know where I get my laser hair removal? West Palm Beach, FL! The dermatologist never fails to impress me, as each finished session is indeed getting results. I guess I'd stay with visiting his clinic right now.

    Besides, if I'd like to get a DIY laser hair removal, West Palm Beach offers a lot of them as well.

  16. Nice hair removal.that's a really very nice

  17. Brilliant invention! I've heard a lot of hair removal techniques but hair eventually come back ::( The thought of never having to shave ever again fills me with so much excitement!!I hope it would be a better method compared to LASER HAIR REMOVAL.

  18. first treatment 2 weeks ago. so far seems more hair is falling out than NdTag and softlight ipl. lower leg inc knee,forearms,face and under arm took 90mins approx 600 flashes. i'm a type 5 skin with PCOS and very hairy. this is exciting i keep picking at hairs to see if they fall out each one gives me a little buzz.

    anyway they have a referal program to get money back. so please please mention my name if you are buying one.

  19. The product you invented is best and effective for hair removing because it is accessible at home and only one time investment.

  21. Thank you for this post.

  22. If this thing can really remove hair permanently, it will be so great. I wish that I can buy that thing and try it on my own.

  23. Hi there! Every single person that has reviewed this great E-One IPL Laser Hair Removal but for some reason no one really convinces me that it really can work and eventually get rid of unwanted hair for ever. I'm thinking of buying one but I guess I still need to find some more reviews about the accuracy of the outcome of the product. Paying so much money at least it should have an absulute answear that yes it can n yes it is permanent. Thank you

  24. I'm going to my friends wedding in two days so am very excited and upMelbourne hair to celebrate for that, can't wait!xx

  25. Great post Thanks to give me such important information

  26. Girls, I bought the E-Swin 4 months ago and I'm impressed. I do have very few hairs left, I really would consider buying it. I spent a lot of money, of course, it takes time to do it, of course, but for me, having black legs because of my too-many-multiple hairs it's a miracle. I tried it first on the underarm to compare the difference with the other underarm and I was impressed. I started on legs, as I said long process (and the green glasses are horrible, too dark!!!) but results are super good!!! The first time you do it, you'll see immediately the difference (20-30% less hairs and slow regrowth). After the first session, everything slows down, if you do it every week you'll notice in 4-6 weeks that the regrowth is super slow, and you'll do it the next month. Only bad thought: above my lips are too tiny and blond, the machine does not see them.. sigh. Buy it even though the cost is high, and even though it is hard to buy on the internet, I know..

  27. E-One is the best way to get the Hair Remove Permanently with no pain left on you.

  28. Love blog, I bought the E-one and have used it twice. I cannot fault it, I've noticed definite hair loss. Had no problem buying although it did take a little over a month to arrive. Due to the exchange rate I paid a little over £1200, worth it. I can do most parts of my body at any time, the convenience is worth the price.

  29. Thanks for sharing this with all of us. Of course, what a great site and informative post. I will bookmark this site. Keep doing your great job and always gain my support. Thank you for sharing this beautiful article.
