Gentle, fast and safe
That’s how Remington Ilight Ultra can be best described. Using an ultra-fast flash rate, it will let you treat areas like underarms in about a minute.
It conquered the heart of thousand persons, both men, and women, as the results after using are incredibly satisfying.
Say goodbye to facial hair
You don’t have to worry anymore about waxing or plucking your facial hair, as you can use this device for removing it fast and gently. The device is FDA approved, which means you can safely use it on your face. You can treat areas like cheeks, chin, neck and above the lip. However, you have to be careful as these areas are sensitive and you can cause injuries easily.
Unfortunately, it removes facial hair only for women, while men have to stick with their traditional methods like razors or whatever else they’re using.
The characteristics of a pro
The model has a lifetime cartridge with 65,000 flashes which means that you won’t need to replace the cartridge so no more money spent.
It has a skin tone sensor which checks if your skin color is suitable for a treatment. In case it is not, the device will not operate. Remember, to check each area you want to treat, as some parts are darker than others.
Also, there is a skin contact sensor, which helps in confirming that you have the hand part flush against your skin.
Ilight Ultra has 5 different energy levels. You can adjust the level by pressing the energy level button until you reach the desired power. The highest levels are more effective and reduce the time of the process, but they can also create more pain and discomfort. You should certainly use the setting that is most comfortable for you.
The device is electronically powered and has a long cord which makes it very handy when using.
The device comes with two head attachments. The body cap is quite big (3cm2) so it’s perfect to use for large areas like back and legs, while the face cap is 2 cm2 so you can easily use it for areas like upper lip.How does
How does it work
Remington Ilight Ultra uses an intense pulse light technology (IPL), being able to deliver up to 7-8 J/cm2 of light energy. It targets the pigment in the hair follicle, transferring the heat to them and disabling the growth cycle without damaging the skin.
After the hair follicle is treated, it can take a few weeks for it to fall out naturally.
Before starting the treatment, test the skin with the skin tone sensor. If your skin color is suitable, the device will be ready for operating.
It is recommended to have a treatment every two weeks, for the first three sessions, and after this, you can use it whenever you see the hair growing back.
You will be able to see results after 6-8 sessions. I observed good results after about 7 sessions. Anyway, it all depends on the skin type, hair color and the precision you do the treatments with.
A good thing is that you don’t need to use any special eye protection, but of course, have to be careful when using it.
Who does it work for?
Remington Ilight Ultra has the same conditions as the majority of laser hair removal devices. It works best on hair colors from medium to darker and it’s less effective or does not work at all on hair colors like white, gray or red.
It is recommended to use on fair to medium skin tones and forbidden to use on dark and black skin. Also, you cannot use it on areas with tattoos or dark spots.
Not so good
As all other laser hair removal devices, Remington Ilight Ultra is not painless either. Unfortunately, it can create a bad sensation described by the majority as an elastic band rubbed on your skin. There can also appear a redness on the area treated. In case you have a low pain tolerance, consider getting a numbing cream which will help in reducing the discomfort.
As I mentioned above, it cannot be used on male facial hair and it cannot be used on all skin types either. So, these parts can be dissatisfactory for some.
Some persons consider the product expensive, but in the long time, it is actually a good investment as you don’t need to constantly purchase replacement cartridges, as for other devices.
