If you are looking for a skin-friendly, long-lasting hair removal method for your armpits that you can do at home, then IPL is the best choice. The Philips Lumea Prestige is a handy IPL device which is about the size of a hair drier. It emits light impulses, which are absorbed by the melanin, which colours your hair. This way growing hair is being put into the resting phase and falls out over time. New hair growth is inhibited.
IPL is becoming more and more popular amongst women, because it removes armpit hair gently and painlessly, doesn’t affect the skin and with regular treatments, leads to long-lasting smooth armpits. At the same time, you can use it quickly and comfortably: With the Lumea Prestige , you can depilate both armpits in only three minutes*.
Removing armpit hair with IPL – the most important tips:
- Choose the armpit attachment of the Lumea Prestige, which has a specially curved design to remove even hard to reach armpit hair.
- Before treatment, make sure your skin is clean, dry and free from long-lasting deodorants. Your hair should be as short as possible, so that the light can penetrate the hair roots under the skin surface more easily.
- To depilate your armpit hair, turn the Lumea Prestige on, choose the matching light intensity for your skin tone and hold it at a 90 degree angle directly against your skin. Push the trigger to activate the light impulse. After two seconds, you can continue with the next skin area. Gentle hair removal can be this easy!
