Excess body hair that usually gets you reaching for a razor or enduring the painful waxing process can now be dealt with efficiently, once and for all. Thanks to the technological advancements in lasers, there are now home treatments, which you can take advantage of to blitz all unwanted hair and not spend a fortune at the salons, which offer such services. The device has gained a lot of popularity due to the many benefits that come with it. Some of the main ones include:
Ease of use
The Philips Lumea IPL device is a bit large regarding its physical size but very comfortable to use on the face and smaller areas on the body. The design somehow resembles a hair dryer, making it easy to hold with a comfortable grip. You only need to hold the tip of this device on the area you want to work on, and press down lightly. Wait for a green light and press the button on the handle. That is it.
The treatment has relatively minimal pain, if any at all. This is the case even when the laser is set to the highest level. Only a heated tingling sensation is perhaps what you will feel during the treatment. Furthermore, the device has five heat settings, which you can adjust accordingly in case you feel some undesired pain.
With about three or four treatments, you will have noticed a big difference in how much hair there is, compared to when you started. Continued treatment of up to 8 weeks will get you results that will please you. Almost all hair will have diminished completely. Patience is all that you need.
The Philips Lumea IPL device is made to be cordless. The lack of wires makes it a lot easier to handle. You can also easily move around with it and will not need you to be near a wall socket outlet to use it. It comprises of two attachments. One is a larger window that can be employed for body areas that are large such as the chest, while the other smaller attachment is suitable for areas that are more sensitive, such as the face or bikini line.
