Tired of shaving or waxing? IPL machines are useful tools for men and women who want to get rid of unwanted hair and Amazon is offering this model from the well-regarded Philips Lumea at a great price for today only.
Whether it’s prepping your legs for a few weeks in the sun or riding out those hairs you swear you grow back fuller with every shave, IPL machines are a simple and convenient solution to ensuring your body stays hair-free. Although they don’t remove hair for good, you can usually wait a good month before touch-ups are needed to prevent further hair growth.
IPL stands for “intense pulsed light” and unlike laser machines, it uses different wavelengths to target the pigments in the hair. Once the light hits the pigment, it is heated to a level that kills the growing cells, thereby eliminating the hair.
The Philips Lumea works by applying gentle pulses of light to the hair and can be used every two weeks for three to four treatments until the skin is smooth and hairless. Note that due to the way IPL works (it targets dark hair), it is not effective on red, light blonde or white/gray hair. It is also not suitable for dark skin.
After these initial treatments, and the hair is gone, you only need to refill every four to eight weeks to prevent hair from growing back.
With different attachments for body, face and bikini, you can ensure the level of light is most effective for the area of skin you are treating.
Right now, the Philips Lumea Prestige has seen its price reduced by 25 per cent to £299.99, saving you £99 on the RRP. It’s a real steal and money that you could soon recoup if at-home IPL becomes an alternative to paying for sessions at a hair removal salon.
The Philips Lumea Prestige is currently at the top of our best IPL machine buying guide, and it’s undoubtedly one of the best Philips Lumea deals going right now.
