Please be careful when you use those products. I had a client today with lot of damage on the skin. She only used once about 3 months ago on her face and it is taking this long to heal. She has been seeing dermatologist and her doctor finally gives her OK to get electrolysis done, but her skin still looked red and scabby.

So please be careful. Do not give it a chance to get infection.

Does it work good on the fine thin hairs on the shoulders?

No to the friction method! I have used every type of hair removal method, friction being one of them; sad to say that this method only gave me terrible ingrown hair, yes it was smooth at first but then the ingrown hair appeared, like nothing I have ever tried. It could work for those that have thinner BODY hair, I would not recommend it for use on the face. I have very thick body hair but around my knees the hair was thinner, now I barely feel any hair around my knees, was it the friction method? (I used a pumice stone) My guess is, it could of been. Do I recommend it though? No, I do not; the ingrown hair I got afterwards were so bad and left me with with some scars afterwards that I had to stop using it completely. You are better of with something that won't damage your skin.

Yes it does, depends what body part you use it for though.
You may want to avoid the face, arms and bikini area (Some people still use it on those parts and it works perfectly for them)

Should work fine. Just make sure you don't rub it too hard.

One of my friend used this and she had some damage on her skin. Her skin was still red . I am suffering with hair removal works . I tried many thing . Waxing is painfull process and it also gives harm to body . Shaving is easy way but unwanted hair grows strongly and fast . SO ı prefer Using Epilator Using Epilator. If you have good epilator you can solve unwanted hair problem easily .

I've never heard about this method, but as I see you are saying it gives you ingrown hairs.. so better to avoid it.
