Looking a bit more like Chewy and less like Han? Been called Bigfoot, Yeti, or a Hobbit and not in a good way? Maybe you love your body hair, maybe you don’t.

There’s a more painless and more modern way of removing hair. Thanks to patented electro-optical synergy—or elos—technology, you can remove hair at the comfort of your own home easily and painlessly. The mē Sleek is a FDA-cleared at-home hair removal device that promises to give you permanent results over a 7-week treatment period. No more shaving, nicks, and irritation. No more nightmares about scream-inducing waxing. Hassle-free hair removal? Sign me up!
The science and tech
Elos technology combines intense pulsed light (IPL) and radio frequency (RF) energies for permanent hair reduction. The “color-blind” RF technology uses a lower level of IPL energy, so the Sleek is clinically proven to be safe and effective on a wide range of hair colors and skin tones. Unlike with waxing, shaving, and lasers, elos tech does it all quickly, painlessly, and easily. It’s a safe and effective way to tackle hair removal. Elos tech has been touted to disable hair follicles so the sprouts fall out and don’t return, meaning no ingrown hairs and permanent hair removal.
Fast light pulses and the one-of-a-kind gliding technique provides short treatment times so you can do more important things than worry about your body hair. Each session with the Sleek takes between 1-8 minutes, depending on the targeted area. Tackle the face, underarm, and bikini area in one minute. The male back can be treated in six minutes, the chest in seven, and the leg in just ten. You can cover your entire body in about 25 minutes. According to mē, you should see a 46% permanent hair reduction in 2 consistent weeks of use and up to 94% after 7 weeks.
An easier way to remove unwanted hair
Shaving’s no rocket science, but it isn’t without its challenges. The Sleek makes it easy to get rid of hair without the trouble. First, you prep your skin and well, ironically, you have to shave or wax the desired treatment area. Those with fine or light hair should wax or epilate for best results. Then, you choose your elos energy level: low, medium, or high. High is suggested for the best results. Next, gently place the device on your skin. If you’re treating your body, make sure both RF bars are in complete contact with your skin. Slowly stamp or glide it over the area. If you’re treating your face, stamp the skin with each flash of light. Reposition the device and follow the contoured area while stamping, repeating until you’ve covered the treatment area 2-3 times.
Sleek saves you time, money, and pain. No refills, no expensive spa visits, and no worries! At $299, it’s definitely higher than your Dollar Shave Club subscription, but think about it: seven weeks of use and your bod will probably be as hairless as those prepubescent days. Buy Here
