I'm using the Silk Epil 9 and I'm pleased with the results. Is the an end-all, cure-all, one stop shop?? No, it's not, but it's a HUGE step in the right direction. I need to re-epilate constantly, but the new growth is a minor percentage of what existed previously. I started with the epilator 6 months ago with at least 90% of my scalp heavily carpeted. If you were to see me now in the coffee shop, you'd consider me to have considerable MPB.
