New to the forum and wanted to let all know the wonderful success I have experienced with my new IPL toy. I cautiously and hesitantly purchased a IPL600 and it works. I had a budget and this fit into it and figured with some past IPL experiences and other hair removal expenditures I would give it a shot. I have always despised body hair and while waxing and after waxing I still had to live with the pain and that rrrrr feeling. After using this IPL600 unit just once the results and hair density and thickness are reduced immeasurably. I have treated my entire body (I do mean entire) all but my hair on my head and eyebrows. I have had IPL done on the face (beard) a few years ago at a expensive professional establishment with great results and was amazed with the results and this technology. However the cost was as much as this unit is just for one year of traetment, I had to make appointments, and forget about affording the whole body.
My expectations of this unit were cautious optimism BUT I honestly can tell you at this moment it works. I am a patient, determined individual and as far as me taking the time to zap portions of areas a couple hours a day is nothing for me. I would say on setting 3 which is 3 pulses (you don’t need anymore than 5) I completed full legs, full arms, chest, torso, behind, face, and privates in around 6 hours moving carefully on setting 3. In my own private home with no wax I patiently worked and before I knew it I was done. Ever try waxing privates and behind by yourself? I have, WOW! Call it a fetish, call it hate of hair I don’t care and I don’t want it and don’t need it. I am a Type III skin type with black hair so I am a great candidate and I understand the process going in with reasonable expectations of clearing of areas. My only question was could this unit actually work? YES. Let me tell you that it was the difference in FEELING of the skin and hair growth below the skin I cannot put into words. I mean the follicles felt and feel dead. I also experienced NO capillary bruising or burns at all. For 800.00 buy one and zap away, I swear it works. BTW I don’t even benefit from the anti-andrgenic female hormones as women do, being male, so I can only imagine how this works on females. Do the math and calculate pulses for lamps of som other less expensive models and you will find this unit cannot be beat. Will I get 1 million pulses out of a bulb? probably not but will use 1 million pulses? hope not. Also at about 30 jules per pulse and a perfect nm range the unit is great for hair removal.
