I have been using Philips Lumea for over a month now and I couldn't wait to share my progress with you. Why? Because it's going really, really well! As mentioned in my first post about Lumea (here), I am very lazy when it comes to hair removal and due to having sensitive skin, I can only rely on one method - an electric shaver. That's why I was very excited to start my Philips Lumea trial.
I decided to use the device on my legs, underarms and upper lip, but I ended up doing just the legs and underarms. A little bit of peach fuzz isn't such a big problem after all and tweezers can sort it out quickly.
Why have I decided to use Lumea every week? Well...I have been reading forums and blog posts like crazy and most girls use it every week and have no complications. IPL is a very safe method of hair removal, so longs you are being sensible, it's all fine in my opinion. I am just very eager to get rid of unwanted hair.
Underarms are probably the easiest area to deal with time-wise, as they only take a couple of minutes in total. Again, I am treating them every week and I noticed a 30% reduction in hair growth- yay! My body hair is really dark and quite coarse, so it's very easy for me to see the progress and as mentioned before, I would be happy to just make my hair more sparse, thinner and manageable.
So far, Philips Lumea has exceeded my expectations and I am thinking of using it on my bikini area and arms in the future. I actually really enjoy the full process and knowing that the hair will be completely gone at some point (with a little bit of maintenance every couple of weeks) makes me very determined to be consistent with the treatment.
I could probably ramble for ages, but I will leave you with my 'how-to' video (see it here).
It's very simple!
