I received the IPL Hair Removal Veet Infini’Silk Pro to test out in December. I am happy to report to you, that this thing WORKS!
First let me tell you a little about it. This is a handheld device that plugs in. It looks larger than most bathroom/ beauty tools but it is very light and comfortable to hold. This device uses IPL (intense pulsed light) technology to “zap” hair roots to stop growth. The version I got, the Pro, retails around $300 and the regular version retails for around $240. Veet recommends using this two weeks apart for your first 4 sessions and then after those first 4 use it whenever your hair grows back. Also, this product does not work on deeply tanned skin or dark complexions! The light works by targeting the color pigment in the hair, and the more contrast between the hair color and skin makes this work better. They say this works the best with people with pale skin and dark hair.
I kind of did my on thing and used this treatment once a week, which is more than the recommended usage. I chose to try it with closer treatments since I have really tough skin and I didn’t see any side effects from the first time usage of it. I also used the highest setting on this. When I first turned it out and gives off a buzzing sound that is completely normal, kind of like a low hair blow drying sound actually. When you have the area you want to treat under the light and press the button, a bright spark of light comes out, I suggest you do not look at it because it is really bright! I wanted to actually test this to see if it worked so I deliberately didn’t use this in a straight line. I did random spots on one of my underarms. I wanted to compare growth on one underarms with areas I treated versus areas I didn’t treat and I also wanted to compare growth between a semi treated under arm and non treated underarm.
I am now currently on my 5th week and I can definitely see a difference!! I have bald spots on my semi treated under arm!! This means it works! I actually started to see results after the 2nd use. I noticed thinner and less hair rowing back in the treated areas. I started using this now on all parts of both under arms! I can not wait to see what happened after more treatments since I can see results already!
Thinking about getting laser hair removal but don’t want to spend all that money now? Try this!
