Tired of shaving, but don’t want to spend thousands on laser hair removal? Home treatments might be the next best thing to getting rid of unwanted hair.
After dealing with years of shaving – and ingrown hairs, skin irritations, thorny regrowth – we decided it was time to find an alternative. Waxing is out of the question (ouch!) and while professional laser hair removal would be great, that price is definitely out of the question.
Did you know it can cost $2,500 or more for a full set of office dates? Our wallets say, “No, thank you!
When we were offered the opportunity to try an at-home laser hair removal tool, we jumped at it. We just want to reiterate that if you’re a body hair pro, we totally support it! But if you’re like us and prefer to be hairless all over, this hair removal tool just might be your ticket to smooth skin.

How does laser hair removal work?
As the name suggests, laser hair removal uses laser lights to remove unwanted hair from your body. Hair removal devices use a series of pulsed lights to penetrate the skin and heat the hair follicle to slowly destroy it, leading to thinner and thinner hairs and ultimately eliminating them all together. Remember: this is not a one-time deal, it will take several sessions to completely get rid of hair. Each session slowly thins the follicle, until it eventually stops growing altogether.
All about Nood and The Flasher 2.0
The Flasher 2.0 is an FDA-cleared laser hair removal device that is safe to use on any part of your body where hair grows, including bikini and Brazilian areas. Technically, it’s not “laser hair removal”, but actually IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light hair removal, that’s supposed to be a lot less painful overall. We were excited to try it out and see if “painless technology” was true.
First use took a little longer while we read the instructions and figured out how everything worked. The Flasher 2.0 has an all-digital, easy-to-read screen to show us what level we were working at (there are seven levels of intensity), an auto mode to make it virtually impossible to mess up, and a skin approved by the FDA. safe technology to work with. One downside is the need to plug it into an outlet to use, rather than being cordless – but it’s hard to complain when it works and is in the comfort of your own home.
Otherwise, sessions are quick and easy, taking only about ten minutes per body part. The “pain” is more like a burning sensation (which makes sense since the light burns the hair follicle) and is very bearable, lasting only a few seconds as you move along your skin. Although safe for most skin and hair types, it is most effective for those with Fitzpatrick IV skin types and dirty brown, black, and blonde hair (but not blonde, white, or Red). And if you have ultra-sensitive skin, be sure to start at a low intensity level and work your way up to see how your skin can handle it. One missing thing that would definitely have been helpful is a pair of sunglasses or some kind of eye protection – the laser light is brilliant to say the least, especially when used near the face, such as in the armpit area.
So, does at-home laser hair removal really work?
In short, we are pleasantly surprised by the results. After just a few weeks of regular use, we started to see noticeable changes in the thickness of the hairs we had zapped. It was starting to get lighter and thinner, proof that the Flasher 2.0 was already working!
