Who wouldn’t want to be hair-free in just 7 weeks? After years of shaving and waxing to achieve smooth, hair-free results, I contemplated laser treatments (for my underarms and bikini area) but it’s just too darn expensive!
Well, about 4 weeks ago I received a great gift to test out: the revolutionary Mē Smooth System! ($395.00 at www.mepower.com Sephora and QVC). This is the FIRST FDA-cleared, dermatologist-approved and clinically proven hair removal system that is safe for ALL SKINTONES.
Even those with the darkest skintone can use this system. The Mē Smooth Hair Removal System is the first and only at-home hair removal device to use patented elōs Technology.
What Is elōs?
Elōs Technology is the combination of the power of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Radio Frequency (RF) energies that target and deliver heat to the hair follicle, which damages the hair shaft and follicle to inhibit hair re-growth.

Developed by the scientists that invented IPL (Intense Pulsed Light), this unique combination of IPL and RF addresses the limitations of traditional hair removal technologies. The addition of “color-blind” RF Technology allows for the use of a lower level of IPL energy, while delivering a clinically proven removal of unwanted hair — virtually PAINLESS with no adverse effects.
I know what some are going to say: “$395.00 for a hair remover…That’s expensive!” Well, not exactly when you tally up the amount you spend on shavers, waxing treatments (and let’s not forget the PAIN FACTOR). It is extremely cost-effective!
The only thing I’d recommend is to wear those little tanning bed goggles when you’re doing your underarms, as the IPL is very strong. You do tend to look at your underarms (I know I do) as you use the treatment.
I’m going on week #4 of using the Mē Smooth and I have noticed that hair growth is VERY slow — 5 days after shaving and still no stubble!
How Do You Use Mē Smooth?
You must make sure the area you’re going to treat is clean, dry and SHAVED! For the underarms, please make sure you do not have deodorant on. Each body part has an allotted amount of treatment time:
Underarms only takes 1-minute for women. To do so, power the Mē Smooth System on, select your elōs level (I use it on HIGH, no pain) and press the elōs Activation Button on the applicator.

Be sure that both silver RF Delivery Bars are on the skin. Do not press, just gently touch the skin. The hand piece will start emitting elōs pulses. Glide the applicator slowly and continuously on the treated area without stopping in one place. Do not return to the same spot for at least 10-seconds. It’s that simple. No pain, just a warm sensation from the pulsating light.
After your 7 week treatment, you may use Mē Smooth once a month. The system comes with one cartridge, which lasts about 6,000 pulse/flashes. Replacement cartridges are $50.00 (at www.mepower.com or Sephora/www.Sephora.com) and WELL WORTH the investment.
I am 3 weeks away from completing my treatment session, and my underarms are already smoother, hair-free and the area which tends to darken from shaving is even lighter.
I am ordering a second cartridge so my daughter can use it, too. In closing, when I think about how much money I spend and the pain I endure during a bikini waxing session, this device is certainly a great investment!
What do you lovely ladies think of this hair removal device? Is a hair removal device’s effectiveness an issue for you depending on your skintone?
