      Comments about Remington i-Light Pro PLUS Quartz Intense Pulsed Light Hair Removal System:

      OK, so I'm hairy. I've been hairy as long as I can remember, and I feel like I've tried every hair removal product out there. I even have gone the route of {highly painful!} epilation.

      In an effort to find something "more" permanent, and possibly less painful, I was contemplating the Tria, but ended up selecting this laser hair remover for a few reasons:
      1.) Lower cost, I can buy a new replacement light once the light cartridge is used up (30,000-ish flashes!) whereas with the Tria, you have to toss it and start over with a whole new machine.
      2.) The head where the light flashes is larger than on the Tria. Great for me, since I'm doing my legs and that's a lot of space. I can get it done faster with this system.

      I've used this system twice so far, and I'm already noticing DRASTIC reductions in hair production! I'm seriously amazed! Remember that I'm hairy, so previously I could shave in the morning and feel a 5:00 stubble by noon. Now I am relatively smooth for a few days. As the hair is growing back, it's sparser and definitely thinner.

      I'm using this on my legs, bikini line, underarms, and a bit on my chin. I'm having the most success on my legs so far (maybe because that's where I epilated the most in the past, and the hair follicles are weaker? I'm not sure.) But, I'm confident with regular use, I'll see success in the other areas mentioned as well.

      They say you should initially use this every two weeks; because I think my hair grows abnormally fast, I have been using it every 10 days or so.

      Oh, and regarding the pain: the first time I used it, I started out on the lowest setting and worked my way up to 5. I was surprised at how even at the highest level, it didn't hurt that badly. I did find that the longer I used it during each session, the zaps got slightly more painful. The second time I used it, I started out at level 5, but started out on the more sensitive areas - for me, that's the chin, the underarms, and the upper thighs. As the machine warms up, the zaps hurt a bit more. But, honestly, in comparison to the pain of the epilator, this thing is a walk in the park.

      HIGHLY recommended! Get this and don't look back!

        Effective to use .impossiable to order refill cartiages from ultra stores and impossiable to find in any store. Maybe the company plain to replace product with a substitute But you can order from Remmington directly online and its an very effective product if took time to use properly for a. 1/8th of the cost of a spa

        Removes Hair but takes time

        By HaIRLeSSssss

        from ALASKA

        Comments about Remington i-Light Pro PLUS Quartz Intense Pulsed Light Hair Removal System:

        Purchased this to remove hair on my wifes face and legs. It has been steadily removing hair and other hair falls out over time. It does not work on grey hair! It does however work on black and brown hair. It stings a little bit the first couple times it is used until the person gets used to the feeling.

        Comments about Remington i-Light Pro PLUS Quartz Intense Pulsed Light Hair Removal System:

        After 4 treatments (the instructions state only 3 are needed), I haven't noticed the slightest difference. I have used the product on the highest intensity setting with absolutely no results. I'm very disappointed, especially with the amount of money I invested in it. Please don't waste your money!!

            I've had this since Christmas 2013. Works well, but is frustrating that Ulta does not carry the refills. ? why they continue to sell this product?

                • Sensitive Areas

                Comments about Remington i-Light Pro PLUS Quartz Intense Pulsed Light Hair Removal System:

                I've obeyed the manufacturers' instructions except in two ways: from the start I've used it every week instead of very two weeks; I've used it on all parts of my body including my genitalia.

                I wish it had been designed by Apple, it would be a lot more elegant and probably easier to use. The area covered is very small and it's hard to get it pressed tightly and evenly enough against the skin for it to go off; it takes care and persistence, particularly on the more sensitive parts.

                It also stings a bit on very sensitive areas, like the scrotum, particularly!

                But six weeks after I bought it, I have virtually no underarm hair at all and my pubic hair is reduced to maybe 40% of what it used to be, my chest too.

                There's one bit which I've clearly missed several times! Strong, dark hair, like a little hedge between two bare fields, it was really quite impressive. I've done that bit this time, don't worry!

                It doesn't get the white hairs, of course (I'm 64 and have quite a lot of those which I'll have to pluck, I suppose).

                I'd thoroughly recommend it!

                  Comments about Remington i-Light Pro PLUS Quartz Intense Pulsed Light Hair Removal System:

                  So I purchased this product back in January and was very excited to use this because in the past I've had professional laser hair removal and spent several thousand dollars and stil didn't get great results. I did my entire bikini area and after about 3 treatments, 2 weeks apart as suggested, I started to see results. The hair was much thinner, lighter in color, and growing in slower. After about 8-9 treatments my hair was 95% gone which was great! Definitely better results than the professional hair removal I received in the past. I did a couple more sessions and then stopped and did just some touch ups but after stopping completely it for about 2 months the hair is back :-( I just started the treatments again this week and this time I'm not going to stop completely. I also used the laser on my legs and underarms and I did not get the same results the hair got thinner and slower hair growth but I did not get complete hair loss and doing the legs are very time consuming. To me it is pretty painful on the high settings (just like professional) but what I do is take ice in a zip lock bag and ice the area for about a minute then laser it and I don't feel any pain at all on the highest setting. Overall I am very happy with the product especially for the price and I have recommended it to several people. I have medium tan skin with dark brown hair.

                  Comments about Remington i-Light Pro PLUS Quartz Intense Pulsed Light Hair Removal System:

                  In the beggining, it was working great. Yet, after two weeks, there were many spots that the hair didn't fall from although the hair is black and thick. I tried several time every two weeks and the result is the same. Also, it doesn't work on black thin hair.

                    I've been using it for years, and I love it! I have way much less hair to shave and no more ingrown hair. The only down side is that Ulta doesn't sell the refill cartridge anymore. It really doesn't make sense to sell the machine, but not the refill!
