How to Use
The Verseo ePen Permanent Hair Removal System is easy to use. First, prepare the skin by making sure it is clean and dry. Next, follow these steps:
1. Use a cotton-tipped swab to apply conductive gel to the area being treated or apply a conductive pad, if treating a larger area.
2. Place the ePen on the area to be treated and press the button.
3. A green light will go on whenever there is good contact with the conductive gel.
4. Listen for the buzzer after 20 seconds, indicating the treatment is finished.
5. Wipe or tweeze hairs away (hairs should be easily removable).
Repeat as needed until the entire treatment area has been covered.
If treating a large area and hairs do not wipe away afterward, it may be easier to wax hairs away after treatment than to tweeze them individually.
Duration of Treatment
Length of treatment with the Verseo ePen Permanent Hair Removal System varies with individual users. Some users see immediate permanent results, while others report a reduction in coarse hair and say that regrowth is considerably finer until permanent results are achieved.
Results also depend on the color of the hair being removed, the stubbornness of the hair (users report faster results with fine hair), and the hair’s location on the body. Facial hair, such as eyebrows and hair on the upper lip, seems to respond better to the Verseo ePen Permanent Hair Removal System. Additionally, users report better effectiveness with the probe method for single hairs or small areas than with treating large areas all at once with the pads, as the current must be spread across the entire pad, versus concentrated in one small spot. The Verseo ePen Permanent Hair Removal System is not effective on grey hairs.
The Verseo ePen Permanent Hair Removal System generally takes some time for permanent results, and it can be months until permanent results are seen. This is because hairs must be treated during the entire growth cycle and because sometimes the follicle needs more than one treatment to destroy the hair. Treatments will take longer if the hair is tweezed, waxed, or shaved in between ePen uses, as the growth cycle must begin again for the ePen to be utilized.
Some users who have not achieved permanent results still use the Verseo ePen Permanent Hair Removal System, as it gives longer lasting results than shaving and is less painful than waxing. Other users employ the Verseo ePen Permanent Hair Removal System to supplement waxing, saying it makes waxing considerably easier and less painful.
Who Can Use
The Verseo ePen Permanent Hair Removal System can be used by both men and women and by teens old enough to be treated by electrolysis at spas, salons, or dermatologists offices.
Parts of the Body
The Verseo ePen Permanent Hair Removal System is designed to be used on multiple body parts, including the underarms, face, and bikini line. While the technology (see below) can be used on virtually any body part, its effectiveness is somewhat limited by the size of the treatment head/conductive pads and the stubbornness of the area being treated relative to the amount of current supplied by the device.
The Verseo ePen Permanent Hair Removal System is equipped with a green light to let users know when proper conductivity has been achieved between the ePen and the conductive gel on the treatment area. It also has a buzzer to remind users when the 20-second treatment time has elapsed.
Side effects reported by users of the Verseo ePen Permanent Hair Removal System include temporary warmth or redness at the treatment site, as well as pain when using the device to treat a single hair. These side effects are not experienced by all users.
The Verseo ePen Permanent Hair Removal System uses two AA batteries, which must be periodically replaced depending on use. Also, the conductive patches lose their effectiveness over approximately eight uses, and customer service for the manufacturer recommends replacing them at that time.
A packet of six conductive body patches (three rectangles, one banana, and two round) can be purchased for $16.95. A packet of six conductive face patches (four banana and two round) can also be purchased for $16.95. A three-ounce tube of conductive gel is $15.95.
The Verseo ePen Permanent Hair Removal System uses galvanic technology to remove hair, the same way it is done in spas, salons, and dermatologists offices. A small electrical current is delivered to the hair follicle, which reacts with the salt water in the follicle, causing the hair to be destroyed at the root.
There are a number of laser or light-based hair removal devices available on the market. A list of these alternatives can be available on our Laser or Light Hair Removal page.
