Unlike most hair reducing technologies in the market, the Remington IPL5000 i-Light Hair Removal system does not claim to achieve permanent hair reduction, but rather it “stuns” follicles and thus suppresses hair growth for up to three months.
It’s a nice strategy for a product that doesn’t want to lead customers into believing false claims.
Also, the Remington IPL5000 i-Light does not require an activator gel but it promises a safe removal of hair leaving a smooth skin feeling that can last for up to 12 weeks.
Customers like to stay at home to have treatments for hair reduction instead of going to the salon where it can be less private and comfortable.
The Remington i-Light Hair Removal System is also the first home IPL (intense pulsed light) with a multi-flash mode which allows for continuous movement and thus faster treatment sessions, making it one of the fastest IPL methods of long lasting hair removal.
A Few Product Details
The Remington IPL Hair Removal System is a handheld device utilising an innovative technology to emit Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) energy. Professional hair removal clinics use IPL technology to safely remove body hair and suppress its regrowth, leaving your skin ultra-smooth and hair-free for up to 12 weeks.
With its multi-flash mode which allows for continuous movement, it quickly treats larger areas of the body and each of its lamp cartridges emits 1500 flashes. This unisex Remington IPL5000 system offers long-term reduction of hair on underarms, legs, bikini lines, arms and shoulders without going to the salon.
The Remington IPL guarantees to give you smooth silky skin, salon standard quick removal of hair, pain free treatment without causing skin irritation and ensures fast, effective and long-lasting results.
The Remington i-Light works by emitting short Intense Pulsed Light directly onto the skin and is absorbed by the skin’s Melanin or coloured pigments in hair follicle underneath the surface of the skin, which disable the hair’s growth mechanism and to suppress hair from growing back for up to three months.
The IPL offers UV protection to protect the skin from damage and it works faster and more effective than laser technology.
Without the need for charging the device up, its corded operation allows for constant power to give you continuous treatment without losing power midway through the treatment session.
The long 1.8-metre cord gives you greater manoeuvrability and flexibility. Just plug the device in and start grooming.
Remington IPL5000 i-Light IPL Hair Removal Reviews
A couple of dozen online reviews are posted for Remington IPL5000 i-Light Hair Removal System and most reviewers are in favor of this device.
Most users say it doesn’t hurt as much as waxing or epilating but it’s so much more effective. It takes time to make a difference but after a month there is a big improvement.
The highest setting is much more effective and you have to make sure you shave first. It takes about half an hour per session and it feels like being pinged with an elastic band.
You can easily see the patches where it has worked and where you need to go over again. It works on legs, bikini line and underarms.
The Remington i-Light is easy to use. The effect when zapped is like receiving instant hot sunburn which is almost like an electric shock. However the unpleasant sensation and red mark soon fades and skin looks normal again a few minutes later. It’s a lot less painful than waxing and even with other epilator.
The most is it works. Just shave as normal, and then put the Remington IPL5000 on clean, dry skin. The device is easy to use on flat surfaces. It is well packaged, looks real smart and with instructions and spare parts to keep you busy for a few hours.
Some buyers found the handle bulky to use and wished Remington will make the head smaller so that you can see what you’re actually doing. The skin contact rim is a bit of inconvenient too because even when it’s in contact, sometimes you have to push it in to the skin a little harder.
Our research team considers the few pitfalls of Remington IPL as described by its owners but its features and performance are appreciated by majority of users and we believe that this product is a safe buy.
