Oh My! I just looked up the LumaRx full body hair removal system, and it costs $499. Even at a Q TSV price, this will be out of the ball park for me. Sigh......

Does anyone have any experience with this? I thought the price of the No-No was bad.

You could get things done professionally for that amount. I did a quick online search and although I see this device, I can't find any reviews. I'd wait.

I am thinking about biting the bullet on this device.

The tria worked on all my darker hair. I need something for the last bit of light hair which this doesn't do unfortunately.

Good to know! I have been very skeptical about all the at-home hair removal devices. How long for the hair to stop growing back for you and how often did you use it?

I saw the chart that shows what skin color, and hair color that it is used for, and it seems to leave quite a few out. {#emotions_dlg.sad}

Nope, not true!

I paid $800 for a package of 5 treatments at a plastic surgeon's office. That was just for ONE area of the body.

No way is this device MORE expensive than to have it done professionally.

I have a Silk'n SensEpil I bought about 2 years ago for around $200 and I believe it is the same technology. I can say the technology definitely works, my legs are completely hair free except for few random strays I must have missed. Best money I ever spent!

I had started working on my underarms when my last light cartridge ran out, so I need to get a replacement bulb. Given that I just have a tiny patch left under there after about 6 treatments.

My first reaction was that there are other devices out there for a LOT less than $400... but I'd also say that the longevity of the bulb (need for replacements or not?) does make a difference in pricing. I caught just a brief part of the demo today and didn't hear them say whether this unit would need replacement cartridges or not? Silk'n now has models that don't require replacements and I'd go that way now if I were to buy again. Although there's only so much hair you need to remove lol.

Definitely look at the dimensions of the bulb too. The silk'n has a pretty good size surface area so it doesn't take long to cover an area like the leg (one reason there's no way I would have ever used the Tria).

They said it has 65,000 pulses and then there are replacement cartridges you can buy. The window area seems to cover a pretty large area, much better than the ridiculous Tria (which I like and use but da*n if it doesn't take forever to do the legs!).

OK interesting HD. I don't think I'd ever use 65,000 though! Maybe if you're sharing with someone else?! It took about 2500 pulses for the bottom half of my legs with the Silk'n. I guess I feel better about my $200 purchase now which came with 3 cartridges in that price, and I've seen replacements on sale for $25. I think I'll only need 1 more to finish my underarms.

I just looked at the pictures of the LumaRx and although the window is a decent size it does seem smaller than the Silk'n I have... hard to tell but to me it looks like the Silk'n is double the size? I'll have to go watch the demo.

For what it's worth, the skin tone sensor is built into the handheld portion of the device too on the Silk'n. I saw in the demo for the LumaRX the girl was holding up the huge base to her face... why would they put the skin sensor on there!?

Must be it isn't selling as they are doing OTO's now.
