Thanks for the replies, everyone.
I want to use a home hair removal system for the face -- especially the upper lip and the chin area where I have lot of frequent and bothersome hair growth. I checked with someone who had her upperlip done with a professional laser treatment facility and she said she had it done for free but it might cost around $600 for others. Then I checked with a popular brand - the Tria home laser hair removal system and it seemed to cost around $499. I see a saving of $100 and not only that, the home hair removal kit can be used repeatedly -- so to me, it seemed like a saving.
I loved to read you had great success with Sesipil AllyG, but since you have not used it for the facial hair, I'm not certain how good it is with the upper lip area.
Also, I did not know about having to buy a new Cartridge with these systems frequently. That would actually make them very expensive on the long run. Besides, one can make a minor scar on the legs or even the hand, but such a thing is too visible on the face. That makes me feel I should rather go to a professional.
I diet and exercise.... along with good friend 'Phentermine'.
