I highly recommend the pilates videos by Ana Caban, it's quite painful at first, but it works really well in all the areas you mentioned. You are working your whole body with these movements, but they focus mostly on the midsection, and you stretch. I think these videos are geared more towards women, so they are meant to give you long, less bulky muscles. It's also a good idea to do about 20 minutes of cardio just before doing the pilates in order to warm your muscles(so they can stretch better) and get the calory burning going. I have been doing pilates(I started with the beginners pilates and now I have the intermediate video, along with the video you need a mat or something soft to cushion your back), I usually add a bunch more pushups(the best for upperbody) at the end to make sure I really work my upperbody, and 20 minutes on the stepper machine for a few years now and I have exactly the results I was hoping for. Also about the hair remover, I have tried something just like that and it didn't work for me, at all.
