12 Sep DIY Laser Hair Removal- Phillips Lumea
For those of you considering forking out for laser hair removal consider this- Phillips Lumea is an at home alternative that will give you the same results in the privacy of your own home. The Lumea is an IPL laser hair removal system which gives off gentle pulses of light directly into the hair follicle and will over time prevent hair from growing back. It can be used safely across a wide range of skin tones and hair colours and the results are really positive.
I have put off this review until I knew I had real results, and at this point I have been using my Lumea for over 12 months. At first I used my Lumea every 2-4 weeks, whenever the hair had grown back and needed zapping again. After a few months the hair became more and more sparse, until it eventually stopped growing at all back aside from the odd stray. After using the Lumea for over a year now I only really do a touch up every 2 months or so.
A major advantage of using the Lumea is that its yours for life, you have the piece of mind that if any unwanted hairs do grow back you can retreat the area at no extra cost. The price of the Lumea is $799.95 (from The Shaver Shop) and if you weigh that up with a course of IPL treatments in a clinic along with additional courses and touch ups which you will inevitably need you will be ahead by a mile. $$$
Using the Phillips Lumea feels really similar to salon IPL treatments. Having had both I think that the Lumea felt just as strong and effective as a salon treatment. With each press of the button you will feel a gentle pulse of heat on the skin which isn’t uncomfortable in the slightest.
The best part of all is that I no longer need to worry about waxing or whether my bikini line is hair free. My armpits are much softer and smoother and I never get ingrown hairs. This product works amazingly, it will save you money in the long term, and it will save you the hassle of having to worry about shaving or waxing.
