    IPL Hair Removal Tested: the Influencer Edition

    2 min read.

    IPL. Is it easy to use, does it hurt and is it effective? What is the best IPL device? Experts recommend IPL devices for home use, consumers love them, but can they stand the most critical hair remover test? What‘s the verdict when an influencer takes the IPL devices test? We speak to Ricarda from Cats & Dogs about her Philips Lumea test to get some answers.

    Man könnte splissige Haare als sanften Appell verstehen, dass der nächste Friseurbesuch ansteht. Aber mal ehrlich: wer mit Apps & Co so gut organisiert ist, kann auf die Erinnerung von Mutter Natur verzichten. Also was tun bei Spliss und vor allem, was hilft wirklich gegen Spliss? Wir geben hier nützliche Tipps gegen Spliss im Haar, wenn er einmal da ist, und sagen dir, wie du mit guter Pflege und entsprechenden Produkten, Spliss vermeiden kannst.


    Why have you chosen to try Philips Lumea?


    I’m always forgetting my shaver when I travel and anyways shaving causes some irritation on my skin from time to time. Of course I’ve tried waxing also, but my sensitive skin doesn’t really like that too much, either. Oh yeah, and I don’t trust those hair removal creams, they’re weird. So, of course, I was really happy when Philips approached me and offered I could try their Philips Lumea Prestige as a hair removal device test.
    What is ipl

    What is IPL?


    IPL stands for “Intense Pulsed Light“ and promises long lasting hair removal with the help of light. Often, these kind of treatments are offered in beauty salons, but there are also IPL devices for home use. With Philips Lumea, I can use IPL-technology easily and conveniently in my own home.

    How easy was the treatment with IPL for your test?


    The handy thing about Lumea Prestige is that, in the beginning, I only have to use it every 2 weeks for about 15 minutes max for a full-body treatment; after that, I only have to do it every 3-4 weeks. In between, I‘ve got peace and quiet. Perfect to keep my head free for the important things!
    How easy was the use of IPL in the test
    In order not to forget the next treatment time and to keep to the right amount of time in between treatments, there is an app for Philips Lumea Prestige – not only for the IPL devices test of course. It includes a personalised plan, some tips and reminds you of your next treatment. Perfect!

    How did you get on with the attachments for the IPL devices during the test?


    Philips Lumea Prestige has different attachments for different areas of the body. There is a full-body attachment, which is especially suitable for arms and legs. If you are as inked as I am, take care during the IPL test: the device mustn’t be used tattooed areas. Also there‘s an attachment which is especially shaped for the bikini and underarm zones and one for the face. So you can reach any part of the body and the procedure is pretty easy.
    How are you doing with the essays for the ipl devices in the test?

    How did you get on with the attachments for the IPL devices during the test?


    All the different areas must be shaved or epilated before treatment. And by the way, IPL isn’t suitable for every skin type. If you have, for example, very, very dark skin or very, very light hair, the IPL hair removal doesn‘t work. Those who want to do the test themselves should remember: you get the best results with relatively light skin and dark body hair, because the light can then reach the melanin in the hair perfectly.

    Does it hurt?


    In extensive Lumea research, no women rated the experience as painful, providing that correct settings were used according to skin tone and  hair colour.
     

    In the tests, some women did describe 'a warm sensation‘, 'prickling' or 'itching' which in most cases disappeared within a few minutes up to one hour.
