Me Smooth My Elos Touch IPL Review
Let me get his straight—having tried numerous hair removal options, I have been very keen in selecting and distinguishing the good ones from the bad ones. The Intense Pulsed Light has always worked for me, but with the breakthrough of ELOS technology, this new technology interested me a lot so I decided to try it out.
And let me let you in major thing, if you are ANYTHING BUT the light skin/dark skin combo and you are finding it hard to find a permanent hair removal machine; you will want to grab this machine very quickly as there isn’t another machine on the market like it.
ME CHIC: The newest laser hair removal device from Tanda is now available!! It’s cute, compact and very handy for all over body hair removal. Not only that, just like the it’s predecessors, the new Me Chic Hair Removal Device is FDA approved to remove facial hair aswell. Based on the same technology as the previous models, this is another excellent device by Tanda. It’s provides 120,000 flashes, which is plenty to remove all body hair and can be used by everyone, including people with red, blonde, grey and white hair and also darker skin colors. You can view more details here (For UK readers? View here)
IMPORTANT NOTE: These machines below are the ONLY machines for hair removal that are 100% safe and approved to use on ALL SKIN COLORS (including brown and black) and on ALL HAIR COLORS (including red, blonde, white and grey hair colors).
*Update: We get many readers contacting us looking for a machine that is safe to use on the face. So YES! The Tanda machines (new and previous models below) are 100% safe and FDA approved to use on both your face & body*

Although these machines are excellent for those who I have already said above who have blonde, red hair, white hair and grey hair and for those with darker colors; if you are still reading about this machine but you have fair skin and dark hair, I would recommend you look at the other machines as you will get better results if you have fair skin with those that Penelope, Maggy and Paris have written about (Jump to Tria 4X, Veet Infini’Silk Pro or the Silk’n Flash&Go).
Like IPL treatment, ELOS hair removal technology lets me permanently remove hair in the comfort of my own home! IPL treatments saved me from several costly trips to my local laser clinic, and now that I’ve tried ELOS out, I can affirm that ELOS delivers fittingly as well. These, I will always be grateful for, and I think many of you will agree also.
Now, let us focus the spotlight to the Tanda IPL machines, namely the Tanda Me Smooth and newer model, the Me My Elos Syneron Touch and let me elaborate on how they convincingly (and successfully) catered to my hair removal needs.
What is the Difference of Tanda Me Smooth v Me My Elos Syneron Touch/Pro Ultra? (AND NEW TANDA ME CHIC)
First things first, let me tell you one thing—they
both all deliver the results they promise – especially for those women and men that aren’t the standard light colored skin with brown hair color. These machines are must for any woman or man with blonde, red, white or grey hair and for darker skin colors including brown and black.
Like I said above, the Tanda Me Chic is the latest model to hit the market in permanent hair removal at home. It’s the newest, cutest little compact device that is safe to use on your entire body – including face!
Tanda Me Smooth (last pic) is simply just the first at home removal machine device that uses patented ELOS technology and this machine is a couple of years old now…
The 2nd newest Tanda Me IPL machine (middle pic), Me My Elos Syneron Touch was only delivered to customer early this year and is the upgraded version of Tanda Me Smooth.
The newest version, the Me Chic (first pic), has just been released towards the end of 2015/start of 2016 and provides all the great benefits of it’s previous models, it’s based on the same amazing technology that Tanda provides to us all, but with the added benefit of an improved compact design. Again, it’s safe to use on your entire body and also for blondes, red heads, grey and white hair aswell as darker skinned people.
This basically means that if you want maximum results with less treatments, Me My Elos or the new Me Chic is the way to go, being the newer machines, they have the highest power technology. With the Me My Elos each cartridge specifically contains between 150,000 and 200,000 pulses depending on the model you purchase, whilst the Me Chic has 120,000 pulses. Nonetheless, these hair removal devices are efficient either way, and I recommend it to my friends and readers who have darker skin such as myself!
As a typical tanned to brown skin girl, I do not have any problems when it comes to IPL treatment limitations apparent for the different skin types. However, with the diversity of our community, some of my dark skinned or blonde friends have a hard time finding hair removal options due to their skin and hair colors. However, when I introduced them with this device, I couldn’t imagine their joy and satisfaction like how they reacted.
Another exciting feature of this hair removal device is it does NOT sting upon usage. Yep, I just experienced a warm sensation for a second over the treated area, but that’s it! Definitely gentle on the skin.
Removes hair from ALL body parts including face
Yes ladies and gentlemen, you read it right. It works on ALL body parts, including the sensitive ones. You need not to fret anymore, for this is an all around hair removal device that is definitely up for keeps. I use it on my chest, facial hair, toe hair, you name it!
What made me try Tanda Me Smooth Professional At Home Hair Removal Kit?
As I reiterated earlier, I have always been fond of Intense Pulsed Light technology. But with the breakthrough of ELOS patented technology, Tanda Me caught my senses in an instant. You can call me adventurous, yes.
But what is beauty if you will not put it out there?!
I did not hesitate on buying the product despite its (young) age in the market for it is FDA approved—definitely safe to use! Plus, it promises permanent hair-removal for all skin tones. And man, it did work!
My friends (with all sorts of skin complexion and hair color) are going crazy about borrowing this one. I did not have a hard time treating my targeted areas for its intuitive application feature lets you glide the device over your skin in continuous motion. I need NOT to stamp over my unwanted hair! Hence, my treatment time will be done in a matter of minutes. It was definitely a life saver.
What made me move on to Me My Elos Syneron Touch/ Pro Ultra?
Okay, you might wonder on why I decided to move on to Me My Elos Syneron Touch if I was really satisfied with its predecessor. You see, I take these permanent hair removal machines like I treat iPhones. Once a new (and definitely better) version is out in the market, I go cray cray! More features, better results. And incidentally, Me My Elos Syneron Touch / Pro Ultra delivers just that.
Having been released last 2014, this home hair removal system uses 126,000 pulses cartridge inside! Let me affirm that once again. 126,000 pulses!! Okay, for a flash rate nut like me, this is my piece of heaven here on Earth! This basically means that this handheld laser hair removal targets the area in the most efficient way possible! This is definitely the latest and most advanced machine out there!
Okay, this might be a little confusing at first for this laser hair removal machine has shaver accessory or epilator accessory that snaps onto the main applicator.
STEP 1: Activate Me
This step is easy as ABC. You just have to turn the power button to turn the system on and set the appropriate elos level button. Once you are set, you can now press the elos activation button on the hand piece.
STEP 2: Treatment
You just have to glide the applicator over your skin. Make sure that both the silver RF bars come in contact with your skin, or else it would not work. That thing happened to me the first time I used this machine, and you might want to be careful and sure.
Is it the best hair removal machine for home use?
I strongly place my confidence on these series, especially for Me My Elos Syneron Touch Pro Ultra. Its predecessor, Tanda Me, delivered its promised results, but its successor exceeded my expectations. I am definitely sticking to this one for my hair removal needs, and I definitely just experienced my best laser hair removal experience with this hair removal device.
