Tanda mē


At the end of March, I presented a device that seems too good to be true.  The Tanda had entered my life and I wondered how my relationship with the razor will be different this year.

After almost two months now, I am happy to finally write about what I think of the device.  

TANDA.Me.HiResBut first, let’s review what is the Tanda ?   Essentially, it is a professional hair removal system that is used at home.   

How does it work?

When an elōs pulse is emitted from the mē device the energy is deposited in the skin, selectively targeting the hair follicle. If the energy reaching the follicle is high enough it can permanently damage the hair follicle and that specific follicle that was damaged will not be able to grow hair any more.

My Thoughts

When I was younger – i.e. in my teenage years – I used to go yo an esthetician to get rid of the unwanted hair on my legs using wax.   Later I purchased a machine to do it at home but honestly it was more painful than anything else.  OUCH!

One day I bought an epilator which has since then stopped working. I was using the razor for many years now.   I did consider getting my hair done with laser treaments numerous times but the price tag attached to it was just ridiculous.   Though I had experience with various ways of removing the hair, it saddened me to see that it wasn’t gone.

Then I stumbled on the and it entered my life.

According to their website, the benefits for this device are: safe and effective, fast and convenient, immediate hair removal option, save money on the long run as you won’t have to go see a professional to do it anymore, and visible results as fast as 4 to 6 treatments.   Could it be possible to see results within two to three months?

I needed to try it and I jumped one day by going through one treatment.   Why did it took me so long to go ahead?  I guess it was because of how it worked.    I did one treatment one day on the legs – from the foot to the knee.    The next day I could see a different as I didn’t have to shave immediately.   It is suggested to do a treatment every two weeks.   So I waited to do another treatment.

The day had arrived and I proceeded to do another treatment two weeks after the first one.    This time, I decided to do both full legs.   I had finished one leg and was about half-way the second one when the machine stopped working.   I unplugged it and tried again without any results.   So I emailed my contact and she immediately proceeded in trying to replace the unit.   It took some time but I was able to get a new unit at no charge.  The service was fast and easy though it took time.

Since then, I have made another treatment and I am pleased to say that I don’t have to shave as often.  I usually wait from three to four days to shave if needed me.  

During the procedure, a light will flash as you move the device on your leg.   I prefer not to stare at the area I am treating with it because the light is bothering me.    The skin becomes smooth at the touch and the hair won’t grow back the next day.    After time, the number of days between the growth of the hair and when you shave increase.

After three treatments, here’s a look at what my leg looks like.


As I said, I am quite pleased with the results.   I really like the fact that I don’t have to shave as often anymore and that my legs are smooth to the touch for a long period of time.    Currently, I am travelling with my family and I didn’t bring the device with me.    Small spaces required me to make decisions on what to bring and what to leave behind.    But I am looking forward to the day when I am back home to do another treatment.

Currently, the Tanda can be used anywhere below the neck. Typically it is used to remove hair on the arms, legs, armpits, bikini area, legs, chest, abdomen and back.   It looks as though they are planning to release an attachment to the device that will allow you to do your facial hair as well.  The attachment is not available at this point in time.

The mē elōs professional hair removal system comes with a 60 days money back risk-free guarantee. The product is only available in Canada for the price of 395$. Yes it’s expensive but the results are fantastic.

  1. Your results look impressive; I can't see any regrowth at all on your legs. What I also really like about Tanda is that it works for all skin colors and hair colors whereas most laser hair removal systems don't.
