The answer is no. Hi Elena, I might be wrong but I have a suspicion that epilation somehow stimulates hair regrowth because I had the same problem. The initial phase takes about 4-5 sessions every two weeks. 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. So I finally stepped out of my comfort zone, picked up the shaver and started shaving just the leg…a year later when I was 19. 2. Hi Benish, to answer the question about your daughter, I’m not sure. I have their Hue lightbulbs in my house (‘Alexa, turn off bedroom light…because I’m too darn idle to get out of bed’) and I use the Philips SAD Lamp in winter and for jet lag because…winter and jet lag and most recently I’ve splurged on the USB charging toothbrush for travel.

If you don’t, its not only less effective, you’re going to smell a lot of singed hair. I saw the other people review and most of them were satisfied . Also, from what I understood you have to do these sessions every 2-3 days during the initial phase. Roberta, I have a different ipl machine, and i have used it over a small scar on my leg. These are questions I get quite often, and I’m actually amazed about how popular this device became lately. Or my other part of my body ,so do not know ,what should I do?? Months passed and I basked in the confidence that I’d zapped my hairs but month by month they started to gain strength. Thank you for a very thorough review.

But just wanted to know what I can expect for a Brazilian as it’s thinned it but there’s still a lot of hairs. Before using the Lumea, legs must be hair free. When I first bought the machine, I understood this too but I think the advice must have changed.

My hair starts to grow back within 10 days of waxing and the pain is so much for me to handle that I go without. There is a separate attachment for face, underarm and bikini so you are definitely ok on those areas. Or at least it does for me. Between siblings? Just read your review, thank you it has helped me make up my mind. Not easy to do, I can tell you. Hello, the review was amazing and good job on that ! Thank you for supporting me. I hardly feel any pain (ok maybe a slight pick at the sensitive lip area down under). Hi Harlan, I’ve quickly come to realise that the second I wrote about this topic, all questions and all TMI was fair game, ha ha. Hope it works for you .

Yes the Philips Lumea precision plus works just as well as the salon Lazer treatment, it's painless. As it is, I’m not back to square one. Hope that makes sense? But please do it with the IPL and come back and let me know if it was easy and pain free and nothing fell off, ha ha, and I might give it a go. Having a product to use at home is far more convenient. In short: you go first! giving myself bruised welts because I thought I could use the microwave wax like all the other ladies did in Spain.

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. Do you think it’s worth to buy this for that part only? Sorry! I’ve been wearing a skimpy g-string on backwards. Now, I might be doing this against all sensible advice, but I’m trying to achieve a Brazilian bikini wax effect so I’m zapping everywhere (though absolutely not the inside areas that a waxing lady might get her wax into.

Hi Sasha, good idea on the lockdown activity. I’ve never comsidered waxing, pain is ok, I just can’t stand blood. She only wanted her legs doing. I intend to ask after the laser has been done, does it leave the burnt hair (due to the laser), which needs to be to removed by wax or razor or do they rub off themselves after laser. every 2 weeks. 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’. The intruction manual is horrific. However, many of them recommend that young girls have gone through puberty before doing IPL. Another concern is for my gf. Thanks for your article very informative. Been wanting to give it a go to the IPL hair removal treatment for a while now, because I’ve been dealing with ingrown hair all my life and it can be very frustrating. Such a thorough article – thank you. I don’t know if I’m harming myself by doing this (hopefully not and nothing has happened to my skin in the year I’ve been doing this) but I think a few ‘initial treatment’ phases are required to really have a noticeable impact on your hair. It’s because my review is mixed and I’ve wanted to give the Philips Lumea a good run for it’s money before coming to a conclusion. Great review! It is an IPL hair removal system, so it works like elimination of hair regrowth, so we can enjoy smooth skin for … I did remove any hairs in between i.e. Philips say ‘no’. 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.

If Philips can’t make it all go away, I’d bet a machine at half the price won’t do the job any better. My main problem due to neglect of waxing is my ass and whole bikini waxing so I’m wondering is the pain you described above as bad all over this area? If you want to know the immediate answer that I’m sure you’re looking for, if the Philips Lumea works on removing the unwanted hair, the answer is YES.
