I think you can find this sort of thing in the usual place : Yahoo Auction Japan.

here is one:

As for safety: Japan has some very strict regulations in place for what can be sold to the public regarding safety standards. Even some medicines which we can buy over the counter in other countries are prescription only. I wouldn't worry about it, it should be perfectly safe.

not sure but... 2006/7/1 01:55
I know nothing about this particular machine, but there are (legal) salons that give you simple lazer treatment to remove your blemishes, and I've read user's comments on the Japanese internet saying that it left a mark on their skin or that their skin became more sensitive.

It depends on what you call "safe", but if everything is really safe in Japan, we won't need any consulting service. But maybe this machine works for you. You never know.

Doctor says 2006/7/1 19:10
I spoke to a "Naika" doctor today, who convieniently lives just over the road from my friend's house and is good friends with her.
He has never heard of any accidents involving these home laser treatment methods/devices. But he suggested that they are far less powerful than the clinical ones and thus would be more tedious to use. However, safe according to him.
Bear in mind, he is not a dermatologist so his opinion may not be that of a dermatologist.

I-epi ? 2007/7/17 17:30
Are you talking about the I-EPI machine??

The one that sells for around 140,000Yen?

It covers an identical area similar to salon machines and the wavelength is identical too.
The power MAYBE less though I think maybe not. Havent checked though the amount of joules energy seems to be the same.

Dont waste your time on PINPOINT lasers.

You need either salon machines or something like i-epi since these cover a larger area in 1 single zap. Hence hair removal becomes much more acceptable.

Ive only read good things about I-epi but for that price I want to make sure it really is good.

Any opinions?

it depends on person 2008/2/9 22:37

I tried diode laser before in a clinic and it was done by a doctor, not in Japan though. I got very good results. In Japan, I tried IPL but it had very little affect and it was applied by an esthetician not a doctor. My doctor in my home country told me that IPL can be suitable for Asian skin and hair but Diode is better for Medtteranean skin type. I am looking for a clinic which uses Diode laser machine. If anyone knows please write me. Unfortunately, my Japanese is not so good so I couldn`t find on my own.

I`m not an expert but I don`t think those home use devices are as effective as a machine. Also, I know that the person`s skin type and the color of hair can be suitable for certain type(s) of machine. For example, IPL is better for Asian skin type or ND YAg is better for darker skin. But in Japan almost all places seem to use IPL and they don`t know about other types.

If you know a clinic in Kansai which uses DIODE LASER please write me.
