My mom purchased this several months ago, and I didn’t believe that an at home hair removal device would really work. I decided to borrow hers to see if it really worked. I have dark hair and fair skin, so It is supposed to work best on that combination. Well, I was pleasantly surprised! After using this for several months I no longer have to regularly shave my legs. I used to have a five o clock shadow on my legs (gross) and I had to shave everyday. Now my legs are smooth and the only thing that grows are fine hairs. I was so excited that it worked that I decided to buy one for myself. I plan to do my toes and underarms next. I will also keep using it once every few weeks to maintain my legs. I definitely recommend that you buy this rather than spend the time and money at a med spa for the same results. I also posted a video so you can see it in action.
I literally never write reviews, however this one is important. I have struggled for several years with the onset of lady whiskers on my lip, chin and neck. I’ve tweezed an average of 50 hairs a day. The first two weeks I did as said on the instructions and although shaving made me feel a thousand times more insecure, I also felt discouraged about the 5 o’clock stubbles. Before I gave up I had decided to tweeze away the stubble which turned out to be mostly white hair as I’m 50 and well, I suppose my lady hair has grays haha!! I have since continued treatment daily and no tweezing. I literally am in shock as I have no whiskers coming through at all!! I have a high pain tolerance, but never once felt discomfort. On occasion I get a fine hair show up, but overall, I am no longer obsessing about my lady whiskers because they are gone! I will continue treatments for maintenance and highly
Had for four weeks now, and I've noticed some of my thicker hairs thinning! Slowly but I'm still getting started. Not yet any major progress but I've only had it for a little, but I trust it will help since I'm seeing a bit of progress already. I believe it said you won't see results until 8 weeks but I'm noticing a bit at this stage myself.
The best way to go about it... you need to make sure that your skin is really clean so don't have any lotions or creams on. It's best to do it straight out of the shower but make sure your skin is completely dry then you can proceed with the whole zappy zap. After you're done then you want to put a moisturizer on. Your skin might feel a little warm for a few hours after that but I guarantee you it's fine
Was so excited to receive my IPL device. Opened the box and found everything I'd need to start this process. The device is a pretty solid little item but not so much so that it's too heavy to maneuver... Still ready to use and hold on to. I would recommend purchasing a white eyeliner pencil to kind of mark off areas to prevent going over the same areas multiple times. One thing that I didn't know was that the light isn't continuous; they are separate flashes for each little area... Takes a little longer than I expected, but considering the cost for doing this at home vs at a salon, the time is far less an issue for me over the money. Have used the device several weeks and can say the hair on my legs is thinner and less noticeable if I do go without shaving a few days. Have also noticed the same under my arms. I wish I'd started using the device on my entire arms when I started everything else... am willing to admit I had my doubts at the start of this process, but so far I'm happy with it. It can get a little awkward to hold one the same way that a razor can get difficult behind the knees, at the ankles, etc. but instead of slicing yourself up like deli meat using a razor, you may just have to use the IPL a couple extra passes at those tricky spots to be sure of exposure. Other than that it's very easy to use. All in all, I'd definitely recommend it.
Ok, so I was super skeptical about this item. I know that the laser isn't as strong as the ones that you would have done at a clinic but that's ok; it just means you have to do more sessions at home. But, it DOES work. So I don't have like a ton of body hair but my hairs are thick because I have like some Spanish and Portuguese going on somewhere in my DNA. I'm only on week 4 of using this so that's four sessions I've done and I'm about to do session 5 tomorrow. When I started the first session, I put on the lowest power setting... The second session, I put on the second-lowest and so on. So my session tomorrow will be the first session I've done at the highest setting, number 5. But despite starting off low and working my way up, I can notice a difference. I would say probably about maybe 30% of my leg hair has grown back and that's it. As for the underarms, there's definitely thinner hairs than what was there before, I haven't really noticed a complete absence of them yet but they're definitely thinning out. Same for the bikini area, not gone but definitely less.
For $99 I was able to zap my legs smooth over the course of the coronavirus crisis in the states, with more than ample zaps remaining in my gun (I only used a couple thousand of the 999999 zaps it comes with), I have long legs and they are a pain to shave even more so to laser off, but after around 10 sessions my hair is barely growing in. With it being nearly painless to boot I don't see why this isn't a wise investment if you have unwanted hair
