Will I like pulsed light hair removal?
We know that we are facing a purchase that can raise many doubts, especially if we have never opted for IPL hair removal and we are more than traditional methods such as wax or razor. The Philips BRI861 pulsed light epilator has a very good advantage and that is its price. When the first IPL epilators for home came out, their price was exorbitant and the risk of buying it and not liking it was disproportionate. Be careful, the Philips Lumea Essential BRI861 / 00 is not cheap either, but as we will see at the end of this article, these types of devices have lowered their price a lot.
Another of the most common doubts is whether your skin can suffer some kind of reaction. Whenever you try a new treatment, we recommend doing a small test in a non-visible area and waiting 24-48 hours to detect possible reactions. The Philips Lumea Essential BRI861 / 00 comes prepped with a skin tone sensor that automatically detects your personal characteristics. Anyway, remember that You cannot use it on gray, white, red or light blonde hair or on very brown skin.
In addition, this Philips model has a security system that avoids accidental light pulsations and with a sliding system, so as not to irritate your skin and that you go faster when waxing. You won’t need glasses either, thanks to the integrated UV filter that protects your eyes and your skin.
Then, worth? In our opinion, yes. IPL hair removal is an effective and long-lasting method to eliminate facial and body hair and forget about it for a long time. Follow the safety instructions and the guidelines to do the treatment correctly and it will make your life much easier.
The Philips Lumea Essential BRI861 / 00 has a 200,000 shot lifespan. If you want to know the time it will take for each session, we leave you here an orientation guide for each area. Remember that you can use it both for facial hair as for body hair.
