If you enjoy having a clear skin, without irritation and annoying ingrown hair after shaving or waxing, then you should consider purchasing your own home hair removal machine. But what to choose from all the variety that exists on the market?  Hope I can help you with my Remington i-light Pro Review. What you should know is that every laser or IPL hair removal device works for every person in a different way. All depends on the skin and the hair type that you have. So, if you have sensitive and light skin like I do, and black hair, then, you too should have very good results with a IPL machine.

 

 

how to use remington i lightPersonally, I prefer using IPL on my skin rather than laser. The pain I feel using these two methods it’s different. I like the very quick burn that I feel when using the Remington iLight than the feeling of getting needles in my follicle that I get, when using the Tria 4x laser. I think it works better on my skin, although others think laser is more effective. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve tried also laser hair removal at home and I’ve got amazing results with the Tria 4x on my legs, however  the Tria 4x couldn’t cover large areas and it required more time to do the treatment. So I decided to surprise myself with the Remington Ipl6000f I-light Pro Plus Face & Body Hair Removal Device, as an xmas present. The decision in buying the Remington IPL device, came after I’ve already had good results with Silk’n Flash&Go, which uses a similar technology to IPL, called HPL ( home pulsed light). check the full review here. I still own the Silk’n Flash&Go, still works perfectly, but I use it only on small areas and sensitive ones until my cartridge runs out. The Remington iLIGHT Pro Plus, on the other hand, I used it on my large areas like hands, upper legs, stomach. To read my journey so far with this product, check my  Remington iLLIGHT Pro Plus review bellow.

 

What is impressive with the Remington Ipl6000f I-light Pro Plus Face & Body Hair Removal Device

 

No More Irritation and No More Hair  

If you suffer from severe razor rash on arms as I do, then I highly recommend this product. I have completed already two sessions  with this product and it’s already showing an improvement on my hair. After a week from the treatment the hair started falling. I am amazed by the hair loss on my arms and no rash until now. I mean WOW. To be clear, as most people don’t understand it, this device it is designed to reduce the hair growth speed, meaning , as Remington states ‘ permanent hair reduction is defined as a long-term stable reduction in the number of hairs re-growing when measured at 6 months after the completion of a treatment regimen’. So don’t expect to be hair free forever, because it ain’t gonna happen! You just need to keep using it, every time you see a regrowth of hair and expect your results to last months and months. Oh, and before every sessions you must shave with a night or 2 before.

 

FDA Cleared and Clinically Proven

Recommended and developed by leading dermatologists, the Remington iLight has been tested in many clinical trials to ensure your safety and provide best results. The device has also a built-in feature, the Skin Colour sensor that protects your skin, by checking if your skin is suitable for treatment.

 

Safe to Use Both On Face and Body

I think this is the first Remington i-Light Pro that it is safe to use both on your face and body. It has a facial attachment for female facial hair, so you can use it on your face as well.

NOTE: Do not use it around the jawline area if you have fillings. From my personal experience with this device, when I clicked the laser along my jaw line, I got a shock right through the right side of my cheek, into my filling, like biting into aluminium foil.

Also, do not use it on tattooed areas. I have a tattoo and when I used it on it I felt too much pain so don’t use it on tattoos.

 

Faster Hair Removal 

According to Remington, this device is the quickest IPL system available today. Because it can target larger areas than a laser hair removal device, it makes the hair removal treatment much faster. Also, thanks to its multi-flash mode, a flash of light it’s triggered  every 2 seconds. The time it took me to do a treatment for a full leg was approximatively 20 minutes and on my stomach 5 min. So I guess it is quite fast!

 

It’s a Unisex Device

This Remington i-Light Pro Plus can be used by men and women. My results after using it, as a woman, are stunning. My husband tried this one as well, although he prefers using a laser machine, the Tria 4x Laser. I’ve used the Remington Pro only on his back, where he can’t reach, at full power, which I think works best on men. The hair regrowth is patchy and gets less as you keep using it. You’ll notice some hairs seem to be more stubborn so you need to insist. I can’t give you a final verdict until we use it at least for another month or two, but I’ll keep you updated in time about how device works on men. So far, it works!

 

Why Remington Ipl6000f I-light Pro Plus won’t Work for Some

  • Some will find it pricey, but for me it’s affordable considering it’s a product I can use both on face and body, and also I can share it with my husband.
  • It requires cartridge replacement, but it’s not expensive.
  • It is not effective or safe for use on darker tones or on blonde, grey or white hair.

Final Thoughts

Overall, the Remington i-Light Pro is a great system for hair removal at home. It is easy and safe to use, with well designed feature, is corded with a extendable cord, that can be easily manoeuvred by you. Also, you will get a 2 year’s manufacturer warranty. Generally, the Remington IPL machines are very efficient, Remington is a trusted well known brand, who invest much in their experts bringing the best products on the market. So this IPL device fits very well within their reputation. It’s indeed, for me, the best IPL device I’ve used so far.

 

UPDATE:

As I said at the beginning of this post, I got this device on Christmas. It’s been months already since I am using it. I didn’t use it as often as I wanted to but still I got good results with it. After 8 months I still have a growth of the hair follicle  but the reduction of the hair is far more noticeable than the one that keeps growing. For you to make an idea the percentage looks like that ( percentage of the hair eliminated):

– pubic area: 75%

– armpit ( and here I am quite impressed) :90%

– lower leg: 65- 70%

I think it is quite impressive, seriously. It is worth trying. The thick and black hair was gone for more than 6 months ( after 6 months or more you must repeat the treatment). The one that remained and I struggle with is the hair that is thin and light coloured. I guess for that I need a device suitable for light coloured hair.

Overall the IPL hair removal it is worth it if you have patience and are willing to repeat the treatment every 6 months or so. Because the results last for 6 months or more ( in my case it lasted for 7 months and a half). Even so, I still think it is worth it.

 

GOOD NEWS:

 

Remington has a new device on the market with the latest technology. They improved the last IPL hair removal system and came out with a new device called Remington iLIGHT Ultra Face and Body Hair Removal System. It is the improved version of the iLight Pro Plus that I currently own.  The difference between the two devices is the number of flashes per bulb. Mine has 30 000 flashes while the Remington  iLIGHT Ultra Face and Body Hair Removal System has 65 000 flashes. That’s a quite of a difference. Also it has a larger window for faster treatments. Currently, the new  Remington iLight Ultra is the number one in Best Seller list of IPL hair removal devices. I guess, being number one in the list, must mean something. It’s the perfect hair removal system to buy if you prefer IPL technology!

  1. Hi I’m Mahdi
    You said after a few treatments hairs will gone for a few months and it will growth again after that time, I want to know when it growths it will be at same level as it was at the beginning
    And just one more thing how often should I use it?

    • Hi Mahdi,
      When the hair starts to regrow will be finer than it used to be. Also the number of hairs re-growing will be reduced. On some small areas on my body the hair didn’t regrow at all. But you should know this happened after almost a year of constantly using the device.
      You should use the Remington I light Pro Plus every two weeks for your first 3 treatments. After that use it only when you see a hair regrowth. You must be consistent with your treatments for the best results.
      Hope this answer your questions.

  2. Hi I’m Tom
    I want to know if I can use this device on my face
    And the one I have is little bit different to yours and just want you to check if it’s same it’s calls “Remington
    i-Light Pro+ IPL System” and if you google it shows my one and yours, my one is $449
    Thank you !

    • Hi Tom,
      Unfortunately you can not use this device on your face. You can use it from your neck down. It is suitable only for women faces, and not for men.
      This is what Remington suggests: ‘ Do not use the Remington iLIGHT Face and Body device on eyes, eyelashes or eyebrows. Do not use the Remington iLIGHT Face and Body device anywhere on the male face, head or neck.”

      If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

    • Hi Lary,
      Sorry for the late response. Yes you can use it on your pubic area but make sure to use it on a lower setting.

  3. Hi
    Ive just used the IPL for the first time. I have tried it under my chin, and the first time it worked. When i moved it to another area it didn’t work. I have used the skin sensor and still it won’t work. Am i doing something wrong or do you think the device is at fault.
    I used my finger on the skin sensor the first time, however i managed to put my chin on it as i thought this would be why it wouldn’t zap, I’m puzzled.
    Regards Tracy

    • Hi Tracy,
      I would recommend you to try the device again on the area where it worked for the first time. If it doesn’t work, then, for sure, the device is at fault and you should change it. Please, keep me updated.
      Thanks

  4. so is the new machine suitable for the face? i thought i read it was? also i have tattoos all over my body. I cant use it then?

    • The Remington iLIGHT Ultra Face and Body device is intended for use on female facial hair on the cheeks, sideburns, chin, neck areas and above the lip. So you can use it on your face. It is not suitable for male face. Unfortunately it can not be used on tattoos. Hope this answer your questions.

      Andy

    • Is what the company Remington recommends and also I think is because men have more facial hair than women and it is a risk of getting burned due to the sensitive skin of the face.
