Back in October I started using the Philips Lumea Prestige device that allows to do IPL hair removal at home.
IPL means Intense pulsed light and is a technology that uses light to heat and destroy the hair roots. Two years ago, I started using another IPL hair removal device that used the same IPL technology. I used it on certain part of my body but it was quite painful so I stopped using it after a little while.
Philips laser hair removal device : Philips Lumea Prestige review
Philips Lumea Prestige is the new generation of IPL devices that promesses permanent hair removal at home. Compared to the other IPL hair removal machine I used two years ago is that the new generation does not hurt anymore. On some sensible part you can still feel a little pinch but it is totally bearable.
IPL at home
I started using the device every two weeks and I already saw after the second session that my hair did grow much slower and less than what it was before. I use it on my legs, bikini area and under my arms (Phlips Lumea Prestige comes with adapters for the different body parts). My arms are the part I am the most happy about as I have only a few hair left and I used to shave every two days!! So satisfying!!!!
For the first session you use the device every two weeks and then you reduce it progressively to 3 weeks, 4 weeks, etc. If you are going on holiday or if you for any reason you need to be hair free, it is always possible to shave between session. It is also possible to use the devise on tanned skin. Indeed the Philips Lumea Prestige recognizes skin colors and automatically select the adapted light intensity. Important to know though : the device does not work on very white and very dark skin.
Conclusion – best permanent hair removal
In conclusion to this Philips Lumea Prestige review, I would say that I am very happy with the device and I recommend it to everyone who is struggling with hair. It is definitely one of the best permanent hair removal device you can find on the market right now, and I can’t wait to be totally hair free for summer!!
