What class (safety) of laser would this thing be...

They 3D print the stuff? Wonder if it would be cheaper to do it in China/Mexico or not.

Despite the feeling I'm going to receive a joke response, I'll ask anyway. What is PFM?
Pulsed frequency modulation - I think. I think it's the same technique used with eximer lasers. But either way, I think the idea is to get the hair shaft to absorb the laser energy and decompose as a result. Maybe it's not technically "burning" but it's pretty close.

My ex went in for many rounds of laser hair removal. Going for the perma-landing strip look if you get me. She was a redhead with fair skin and light colored hair redhead, and it never quite worked the way it was supposed to, even after many sessions. I'll believe this when I see it.

Being familiar with how laser energy works, I have serious doubts a laser of that size would make a practical razor. Even large units for removing hair require slow movements and several treatments.

what I found amusing is most of the 'salesmen' have beards . Perhaps they are not ready for the laser razor .

Just shaved my body last night.

Would have liked to try this fancy new contraption.

After I burn my face so much it's nothing but solid scar tissue no hair will ever grow there again. It's going to be awesome!
