I have been thinking of buying this IPL machine for quite some time now but i am on the fence since i have had a lot of laser sessions in the past ( Not diode or IPL, it was a laser called Alexandrite which i was told was way better than both of them ) I have had like 20 sessions on my face , around 10 sessions on my armpits and bikini and around 5-6 on my legs. The machine itself I’d give a 9/10 on ease of use. I’ve been bleaching this hair for many many years so hard to say how much of it is actually dark. My hair didn’t seem any different. However, do some research on skin tone because I suspect the area has a…different skin tone and contrast. I researched the price of professional laser hair removal before buying my Philips Lumea and there was a huge cost difference. Hope that helps! Hi Shay, (apologies for the TMI to anyone else reading this who doesn’t want this level of info, ha ha): I haven’t had the courage to use the IPL machine there and it is an area I have waxed during my Brazilian, so I completely get it. Good to know (for comparison with the Lumea) that the expensive laser isn’t permanent. Hi Elena, I might be wrong but I have a suspicion that epilation somehow stimulates hair regrowth because I had the same problem. 5) ha ha sorry for the confusion – I meant sunbathing/hitting the beach not day time versus night time.

After a few uses, most of the treated area will have a reduced amount of body hair, and if you stick with it, eventually all the hair will be gone. I was genuinely disappointed. But at the same time becomes a double-whammy of time and cost. Thanks again! Such a thorough article – thank you. I do still have top up waxes every now and then just to tidy up the areas I don’t manage with the IPL and also for a bit more precision on the shaping as well as stray hairs I miss ‘underneath’ with my IPL, so that’s when I include the butt area. I was curious, since you are able to get this done at a salon, you should in theory be able to do at home – but that’s where I can’t get an answer. since this crazy virus. It’s definitely helping so many of us out there. After all this money and time i noticed that yes i have had a great reduction but i still have hair in those areas. The Philips Lumea is really easy to use so in 30 minutes I was able to do both legs; Yeah, unbelievable, I know! I don’t suppose you have any information on how effective this product is on the scrotum area? Also, doesnt hurt nearly as much as an epilator. But I still at lost to buy this or not.

In short: you go first! My leg hair took off and went wild after 18. Since we need constant maintenance my wife inquired me if we should buy one of this at home IPL and after your review I’m very tempted to try. Just read your review, thank you it has helped me make up my mind. I’d honestly get a machine and keep at it. And this is where I fell down. Can you share this machine?

If you’re organised enough, just use your calendar after the first few sessions. Still a positive one, so I’m going to give it a go. After some fiddling around with it so I could write this review, it turns out you just go in and hit ‘start treatment’ and it logs the new date for you. What I do include below is some pictures of my underarms and legs a few weeks after doing IPL (after doing a few courses of it). Would love to hear your response! If pain is a worry, then the machine would be better than waxing. In most cases, these effects disappeared within an hour. Hi Maheen, you need to do the hair removal before the laser. But definitely my labia (or lips if we’re being less formal). The sensor selects if for you and I have noticed it does change e.g. For me (and a lot of other people leaving reviews for Philips’ IPL at home device), it’s one of those products that has a list of pros and cons and whether it’s worth buying and trying comes down to your specific needs and, let’s face it, body hair.

Some people suggest you avoid the scrotum because of the skin colour – if there isn’t enough contrast between the darker skin and the hair, IPL is ineffective. At first I did shave pre-IPL and the ingrowns were worse than ever. If that is the case, do you shave every 2-3 days prior to each session? I had 3-4 months, when I didn’t use it at all after using it for 3 months religiously, now I completed my 3rd treatment starting up again since then and I can say that I’m almost back to the initial ‘hairless’ result I had after the initial 3 months. I’m also a fan of Philips products more generally. These are questions I get quite often, and I’m actually amazed about how popular this device became lately. It’s easy to see this as a downside – the regular maintenance – but at the same time, it’s a huge plus having the machine already there and paid for and ready to go. I achieved the ‘results’ in my pics without any gels or other extras – just the machine itself. Philips is just trying to keep you safe, though, as darker skin types absorb far more light energy, thus using the Lumea could really mess up your skin and your health. Yes, it works. I hope it works out well for your wife. If cost is a concern, why not give waxing a go first. The beautician persisted like this for half an hour before turning to the tweezers (Peru).

I had open wounds in the form of mosquito bites at the time. Unfortunately this lovely zapper then sat in dust for 4 months after I got it because it was record-breaking summer heat, and if I treat with IPL then I was not suppose to have that skin exposed to the sun for a few days. Assuming your hair is dark, I’d say it comes down to budget. Your email address will not be published. PS: I consider you very tough.

Hi you considerate Lady! Your thoughts on your body hair doesn’t need to be fashion driven. It’s the thought of shaving my bikini line that puts me off this. For the record, I ended up buying the Philips Lumea Prestige. 2) you can use a razor in between. The only way to truly test it would be to compare the two (Tria on one leg, Philips on the other, but who’s going to do that?). A word on sponsorship: I paid for my Philips Lumea with my very own money. Though I haven’t tried any of them, I’d seriously save your money. Fashions will always change. Super quick. I now wax and that is better. It was seriously patchy. (somehow, the Lumea is more prevalent in the UK than Tria 4x).

On my underarms I feel zero pain. I myself have done IPL at a salon for about 3 years and they always apply ice before the zap, so I think I can continue that method to numb the skin before zapping.

Hi Kireta, you mention wispy hair so I just want to check you’re not blonde haired – the machine won’t work for blonde hair because there’s not enough contrast between your skin tone and hair colour (essential for the machine to work, apparently). And when I went to have my legs waxed professionally (as part of a combi-wax for a wedding), the waxing lady joked about my legs: ‘there’s nothing there to wax’. You’re the second person to ask about the gel and my understanding is that the tech inside the professional lasers is different and therefore the gel isn’t needed (or recommended for) the Philips machine.

My dermatologist recommended to get professional IPL hair removal treatment, which I agreed too until she told me the price, around £3,000 to treat several hairy areas. Ha ha, it’s a legitimate question and one I thought about because I know from years of waxing – if you thin the hairs long enough, they eventually don’t come back. HI Jo… Thanks for such a detailed review. All I could feel was a small pinch; Maybe a 1 or 2 on a discomfort level. There is clearly an improvement after the two first sessions; the hairs grows thinner and most of it its gone as seen on the photo. Got a bit nervous, thinking it will hurt badly, but to be honest, the treatment itself is not painful. Of course, I did my research and briefly considered buying the cheaper Braun product, as it was another brand I’d heard of. I recommend keeping an eye on prices for all the models in the next month or so. Oh? Yes the Philips Lumea precision plus works just as well as the salon Lazer treatment, it's painless. Hope you get one and that it works for you (and saves you some money). One more question if I may-can you choose the intensity or does the sensor do that for you?

I also used the philips lumea on my arms and lower back.

If I may suggest for you and your readers, try applying an ice pack on the area you’re about to zap. Philips Lumea Prestige Review.
