Remington Hair Removal IPL Technology

Remington Hair Removal ProPulse IPL Technology

Remington uses ProPulse Intense Pulsed Light technology to treat hair follicles. The pigment in hair follicle called "melanin" absorbs the light in different wave lengths (normally 450-1100); absorbed light heat up hair follicles. It breaks hair growth cycle in active phase disabling hair-producing papilla from re-growing hair for a long period of time. That's why it's called "permanent".

There are many renowned companies that use the same technology to treat hair such as: Philips Lumea, Iluminage Touch, Braun Venus Silk-Expert, and more…

Remington Hair Removal brought you safety of IPL combined with efficiency of clinical hair removal in Remington iLIGHT IPL at-home hair removal.

Remington iLIGHT Pro is the older version of Remington iLIGHT Pro Plus. It’s a nice device with ok specifications. However, it’s not recommended!

If we are talking about efficiency and safety, it’s a very recommended device. But, the problem is in the cartridge lifetime and the ongoing costs! I’m going to show you this in detail below.

Durability

OK, into the important part of this device! Remington iLIGHT Pro comes with a flash bulb life of 1500 flashes. Despite the 3 extra light bulbs that give 6000 flashes in total, what will happen when they’re finished? Of course you’re not buying the device to use it for around 2-3 treatments lasting for 1 months!!! You will need to buy additional cartridges which will cost you additional money into an endless cycle. That’s why I do not recommend this device!

iLIGHT Essential is the smallest version of all Remington iLIGHT hair removal devices. It’s a compact, gentle, fast, and effective device suitable for men and women. Despite I gave this device 83% rating, I do not recommend it. Remington Hair Removal iLIGHT IPL3500 is the slowest one among its kind (in showing results, not in application time). Moreover, it does not give great results as illustrated below.

Clearance

FDA clearance

iLIGHT Essential is FDA-cleared. It has a CE certification to meet EU Standards. Moreover, it's clinically proven and recommended by dermatologists to work on female face, body, and male body below the neck.

Skin & Hair Types

iLIGHT Essential treats a wider range of skin tones which is considered an advantage over other versions. It treats I-V (from light blond to dark brown skin tones).

However, it cannot treat only darker skins such as brownish black.

Moreover, it works on the same hair colors. This means that it’s not suitable for red, light blond, white or grey hair colors.

No brownish black skin tone

Remington iLIGHT Essential gives best results after 4 treatments once every 2 weeks. Treatments from 5 to 7 can be done once a week. You may experience 60% up to 70% hair reduction after the 4 treatments. The device provides 12J of power per flash. Touch-ups are recommended when needed to maintain the results.

The device should give results slower than iLIGHT Pro Plus and iLIGHT Ultra. It uses the IPL technology not ProPulse IPL and it has lower power.

Who Can Use iLIGHT Essential

iLIGHT Essential works on female body areas including bikini area, legs, arms, and underarms. Moreover, it works on female face on cheeks, sideburns, upper lip, and chin.

In addition, iLIGHT Essential treats male body below neck, this includes shoulders, back, chest, and stomach.

It’s not recommended on male face, head, and neck as it will cause permanent hair reduction in these areas and may lead to irritation and complications.

iLIGHT Ultra application areas
Remington hair removal iLIGHT IPL3500 application areas: Female face, legs, bikini area, arms, and armpits. For male body below neck: Shoulders, back, chest, and stomach.

Durability

iLIGHT Essential comes with a bulb life of 350,000 flashes. It’s the longest lifetime between all Remington versions as it lasts up to 20 years if used properly. Moreover, it can provide up to 130 full body treatments.

NOTE: The manufacturer included in the user manual that the expected service life of the equipment is 5 years. Which was not mentioned about other versions! So, despite the bulb should make it for around 20 years using the 350,000 flashes, it actually may last only 5 years! This means you may experience any technical failure or issue after 5 years and you will need to fix it. In other words, this product only works for 5 years!

  • Integrated UV filter. It ensures more safety and protection from unwanted rays.

By using this device, you will protect your skin against excess hair re-growth. It is also designed to be used safely and securely at home. Yet, although it is used without help from the side of anyone else, you need to consult a dermatologist or specialist before applying it to your skin, particularly if you feel your epidermis is sensitive.

Officially Cleared

FDA clearance

Like all Remington  iLIGHT devices, iLIGHT IPL6780 is FDA-cleared. It also has CE marketing affixed on each product packing. Such clearance proves that the device is medically and scientifically approved. Thus the application of its IPL to your skin is 100% safe when used properly and according to your doctor's advice.

On the box, you will read the two letters "CE" which indicate that products sole in the European Economic Area have been tested and assessed to meet guaranteed safety and health.

Used By Men?

iLIGHT IPL6780 can be used safely and easily by men, too. But they should not use it on face hair because of the density of their facial hair (dangerous!). Applying it to other areas of the body is completely safe especially when used properly and at definite times.

iLIGHT Ultra application areas
Remington hair removal iLIGHT IPL6780 application areas: Female face, legs, bikini area, arms, and armpits. For male body below neck: Shoulders, back, chest, and stomach. It's not for use on male face, jaw, or neck.

Skin & Hair Types

Like other Remington Hair Removal iLIGHT IPL  devices, iLIGHT IPL6780 uses intense pulsed light in order to suppress hair growth. To get the utmost from each application, it is recommended to use the device according to the suggested plan which will follow in this article soon.

However, like other Remington Hair Removal devices, iLIGHT IPL6780 is suitable for skins from light blond to medium brown. Do not use it on darker skin tones such as dark brown and brownish black. Using iLIGHT IPL6780 on those skins may cause discoloration and other serious complications.

It is also suitable for hair colors from medium blond (beige) to black. The device is less effective on red, light blond, white or grey hairs as they contain much less melanin.

No dark brown or brownish black skin tones

*iLIGHT IPL6780 is not recommended for use on moles, freckles, make-up, or tattoos.

Recommended Treatment Times

In order for you to get the best of iLIGHT IPL6780, the product manual suggests using the device at most once every week or better once every other week. Yet, most specialists and even practitioners recommend waiting for new hair to grow before executing another treatment session. Usually it takes 3 treatments to get all hairs treated. However, touch-ups are recommended when needed.

It is known that hair that grows in the underarms area grows faster than that in other areas of the body. New hair always grows within two weeks. Therefore, you are advised to treat the underarms either every week or other week, depending on the hair growth rate.

On the other hand, hair growth in the areas of arms and legs is a bit slower, taking about 8 weeks. So, when you treat these areas, it is necessary to wait until the hair grow and can be seen.

Please note that it is important not to wax or pluck during or before the treatment session.

Remington iLIGHT IPL6780 has been designed just to help you keep your skin smooth and bright for the rest of your life. The device provides you with:

  • 150,000 flash bulb with no ongoing costs or replacements.

How iLIGHT IPL6780 Works

Remington iLIGHT IPL6780 utilizes pulses of light designed especially for suppressing the hair follicle and preventing hair re-growth. Suppressing hair follicle affects the roots of hair, resulting in permanent hair elimination without causing pain. Using other classical manual devices will not affect the hair follicle but they cut off excess hairs giving them the chance to re-grow in just few days.

However, All UK Remington Hair Removal iLIGHT devices have the very same way of use which is mentioned up in “How To Use” section. Moreover, for more facilitation, this video illustrates how to use UK iLIGHT IPL devices:

Clearance

FDA clearance

Remington iLIGHT IPL6750 is FDA-cleared, it also has CE certification to meet European Union standards. It is suitable for female facial use below the cheek bone. The device is designed to meet your hair removal needs with its up-to-date innovative PROPULSE technology. This is intense pulsed light that can eradicate excess hair from its roots to give you a permanent hair-free, smooth skin.

iLIGHT IP6750 can be used safely and easily by men, too. It is effective in removing unwanted hair on body under neck. You, as gentleman, are blessed with such a device that has a comfortable hand piece which aids you to use it without others' help, giving you more control.

Guaranteed Results

With its PROPULSE IPL technology, iLIGHT IPL6750 works efficiently by focusing light to heat hair follicle, which interrupts the cycle hair growth. Scientifically, the melanin in the hair absorbs the light energy and hinders the follicle from feeding the hair and supplying it with the necessary oxygen. This process is to suppress hair growth.

Skin & Hair Types

Remington iLIGHT Prestige IPL6750 works on both body and female face. So, it’s suitable for application on skins from blond to medium brown. However, it’s not suitable for use on darker skin tones.

It is also suitable for the following body hair colors: Medium blond (beige), blond, brown, and black hair. It’s not working on light blond, red, white or grey hair.

No dark brown or brownish black skin tones

*iLIGHT Prestige IPL6750 is not recommended for use on moles, freckles, make-up, or tattoos.

Recommended Treatment Times

To get the best of Remington Hair Removal iLIGHT IPL6750, you should use it three times at two-week intervals, which takes almost one month. Afterwards, you can use treatments every week. After nearly 11-12 treatments, you will get even better and permanent results. Treatments should take no less than 10 to 12 weeks.

Thanks to its improved lamp lifetime the iLIGHT IPL6750 can be used numerous times up to 100 full body treatments. This means that the number of frequent uses will not affect its function or performance negatively.

To keep your beauty at its best, you should be patient, particularly the application time of iLIGHT IPL is a bit slow! Yet, it is well known for being comfortable, easy, and effective.

Skin Test: Is It Important?

Skin Sensitivity Test

Remington Inc. advises you to be very kind to your soft and delicate skin. You should know that such hair removal devices that use IPL apply light to your skin, which might do harm to it if they are used improperly. So, before treating any part of your skin, you must test your skin sensitivity and choose intensity level as illustrated below. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. After shaving and checking your skin with the skin tone sensor, start at the lowest level and check if flashing your skin is comfortable.
  2. Wait 24 hours to make sure the treated spot is clear of redness, irritation, or any other side effect.
  3. Move up a level and repeat this process by moving to another spot.
  4. Wait for another 24 hours to see if any side effect appears.
  5. If you feel it is uncomfortable or painful, stop it immediately.
  6. If there is no bad reaction within 24 hours, pursue the treatment at the highest level can be tolerated.

In case you have stopped treatment for a long time, say four months or so, it is better to repeat the test. This is just to be sure you will not distort your skin beauty and smoothness.

Tanned Skin and IPL

Tanning & IPL

Experts state that the purpose of IPL treatment is to improve dark (particularly brown) spot and improve blood vessels. This means that the IPL is targeted to treat color. For this reason, in case you have a tan, the light will target the tan, which results in a burn.

Experts assure that having a tan can put you at a greater risk if the laser or IPL is used. The IPL or laser seeks the melanin in the root of the hair. The melanin comes out to the surface causing a skin tan. The use of IPL and laser will be destructive. Hence, it is best to wait until your tan completely disappears. Moreover, after performing a treatment session, try to use sunscreen in a daily basis to protect your skin and keep it bright and shiny. You, as a beautiful lady, should know that your epidermis is very delicate.

How To Use All Remington iLIGHT Devices

  • Shave treatment area then dry it using a soft cloth.
  • Sit next to a power source or use an extension cable to let you sit in a comfortable place.
  • Connect the adapter to the outlet.
  • Turn the device on using the control button next to the energy level light indicator. The energy level will turn to level 1 and a fan sound will start.
  • Set desired energy level using energy level "control" button. Always use lowest setting then move up to the level that makes you feel comfortable.
  • Put the applicator against treatment area in a way that makes it in full contact with your skin. If the device is in full contact, you'll see the ready light blinking slowly indicating that it's ready to work.
  • Press the flash button, you will see a flash emitted into your skin and hear a "popping" sound.
  • Move or slide away to a new treatment area. When sliding, keep pressing the flash button. The device will automatically emit a flash in less than 2 seconds with the "popping" sound.
  • NOTE: Always move continuously in the same direction (row), each application has to be directly ahead to the previous one.
  • Move on to the next row and repeat again starting with step 4.
  • After you finish your treatment session, press and hold the power button to turn off the device.
  • Remove the adapter from the outlet.
  • Clean the applicator and treatment window using the free cloth then store it.

Tips & Precautions

When I review any IPL or laser device I always talk about some tips and precautions that must be considered. These points to put in mind are EXTREMELY important and dangerous at the same time. As if you did not put them into consideration you may encounter some problems and complications that may lead even to cancer! (This part – especially related to diseases – has its own article on our website)

What You Should Do:

  • When using iLIGHT devices always move continuously in the same direction (row). Each application has to be directly ahead to the previous one. This will minimize overlap and miss spots. Do not treat the very same area many times at the same session. However, slight overlaps are allowed.
  • Always use lower setting when begging treatments and always do skin tests.
  • Make sure to clean treatment area and dry it before treatments.
  • Avoid sunlight 2 weeks before treatments and 48 hours after treatments. Your skin must be free of sunburns before exposing to IPL.
  • Avoid tanning for the very same period before and after treatments. Tanning darkens the skin which makes it more prone to harm, redness, irritation, and even some serious diseases.
  • Use 50 SPF sunblock or cover treated area if you have to go out under sun light.
  • Read user manual carefully; it mentions many important tips and tricks when treating.
  • Consult your doctor when any side effect appears.

NOTE: Remember that experts state that you should wait for new hair growth before performing a repeated treatment session. Hair in the underarms usually grow faster than other parts of the body, after one to two weeks at most, so you might need to treat this area every other week.

When it comes to hair on legs and arms, the growth rate is slower. It takes about 6 to 8 weeks to  grow again. Thus, using the device to eliminate excess hair basically depends the part of body to be treated.

What You Should Not Do:

  • Remington iLIGHT devices are not recommended for use by pregnant or breast-feeding women.
  • Do not use Remington iLIGHT on eyes, eyebrows, ears, nipples, or genitals.
  • As mentioned before, do not use Remington iLIGHT devices on male face, jaw, or neck.
  • Not for use by anyone under 18.
  • Do not use these devices on tattoos, make-up, moles, or freckles.
  • Do not use Remington iLIGHT devices if you suffer or have history with the following diseases:
  • Skin disease such as active skin cancer and eczema
  • Epilepsy
  • Light-induced seizures
  • Chronic migraines
  • Vascular disorder
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Burns, infections, inflammation of hair follicles, abrasions, open lacerations, haematoma, lesions or wounds in the targeted area.
  • Herpes simplex (virus)
  • Diabetes
  • Lupus erythematosus (immune system mistakenly attacks on healthy tissues) and porphyria
  • Congestive heart disease.

Last words

Remington iLIGHT are well-known devices with high specifications and astonishing features. However, the most important problems you need to consider before buying yours is its speed and the flash bulb life.

If you’re thinking about a product that serves for more than 15 years efficiently with quick applications, no Remington iLIGHT product can economize.

However, to be honest, Remington is a leading company with one of the best collections to treat with IPL. Regardless of speed and life, I strongly recommend the Remington iLIGHT Ultra and iLIGHT Prestige IPL6750.
