      Works Well!

        Comments about Remington i-Light Pro Intense Pulsed Light Hair Removal System, Model IPL6000USA, 1 ea:

        I've tried a couple similar products (NoNo, for example, which didn't work for me) and this one works very well, compared to others. I've been using it for about two years and I've noticed a dramatic change in the texture and amount of hair in the areas where I use it. I read some of the other reviews and I agree that if you want to use it ALL OVER your body, the cartridges are going to run out quickly and that will be more expensive. It is, of course, still cheaper than professional laser hair removal.

        I use this only in my bikini area. I tend to slack off sometimes but when I use it weekly, after a couple months, all of the hair is gone. Then, I just need to spot treat every month or so. If I slack off and don't spot treat, the hair will stay gone for about three months then come back in little patches that are finer and more sparse than before. The longer you use it, the better the results will be. I have also tried it on my legs arms and face (which you aren't supposed to do) and it does work but I didn't have the patience to keep it up.

        If I really stay on top of it, I need to buy 2-3 cartridges per year but that is offset a little by not needing to buy as many razors. I used to buy at least 12 Venus razors per year but now I only need about 3 (so I save about $50- the cost of two i-Light cartridges). So once you get past the initial treatment so that you can maintain, your cost will just be the amount that you pay for the device and you will just spend the same amount on cartridges that you would have spent on razors.

        I also want to mention that I have very light skin and very dark hair. This product works very well for me and I think it would work well on anyone with light skin and dark hair. If you have darker skin or lighter hair, this might not work as well for you.

        Not worth the money

              After using this item on a total of three and half times on just by bikini line, bottom half of legs and arm pits the indicator light for new bulb started flashing and now it will not work. It is supposed to go for over 1,500 flashes, but this is clearly not the case. I am very disappointed with the durability of this product and feel as though I was cheated out of my money and now have to invest even more for a product that has yet to show any results.

                First let me tell everyone that Hair Removal Systems are not to remove fine or very little light hair. The professionals tell you to shave the hair on the desired area before you start the process so the laser can grab the follicle. You are not allowed to tweeze/wax or remove hair with hair removal products while you are using the hair removal systems. When you use the system, the skin needs to be clean without any lotion (skin lotion/sun tans). And you cannot be out in the sun while using any kind of laser on your skin. So be careful... And if you have very light hair; there is a possibility that the laser can make the gair grow thicker. These systems are for people with thick or lots of hair so ladies, be careful. And if the hair is thick then there will be a slight pinch on the area because the laser is zapping it. You should put ice on the irritated area if you have sensitive skin after the process. And sunscreen is a must. And the results should be seen after 6 proper procedures and they have to be at least 3-4 weeks apart because the hair has to grow out for the laser to zap it.
                This is a very good system and it does work if used properly. It also beats the price professionals charge for laser hair removal.
                Good luck everyone.

                    I have been useing the i light Pro every two weeks for the past four months (so 8 times). I had results after the first time I used it. Now, I have barely any leg hair or arm pit hair left. What hair does still grow is much finer and grows slowly. I am also having good results on my biki area. I have very pale skin and naturally very dark hair. There is a little bit of a sting sometimes but nothing unbearable. I also have not experienced any skin irritation. I think this is a great device and look forward to all my unwanted hair being gone!

                        I would not recommend this product.

                        I have used it for my underarm, which makes me painful, even my husband does't want to use this,because pain. There are 5 energy level you can choose, we selected the 1st level.

                        By the way, be prepare sunglasses to protect your eyes. jack the thing up to it's max flash when you use it. You will got many flashes. It's might be harmful your eyes.

                        finally, I returned it the day after purchased day.

                          Skin & hair color meet all the requirements,but have had ZERO results even after multiple treatments.After having under arms waxed 3-4 times, loss of 75% of the hair is normal. What is left is of finer texture- so it should've been easy to get rid of. Instead,Use of this machine has STIMULATED the folicles & enhanced the growth! I now have more & thicker under arm hair & less money. I'm going back to waxing!

                              I have light-medium skin and brown hair. I've used this product 3 times now, on my legs, underarms and bikini line. It works pretty well, specially for underarms and bikini, probably because the hair is much darker. I have only a few "patches" of hair still growing in those areas, and I'm hoping a couple more treatments will get rid of those. Legs might take a little bit longer. Doing underarms takes less than 5 minutes, legs probably take about 20 minutes each.

                              I just bought the Remington i-Light 6000.
                              I have very fair skin and my hair is light brown.
                              I put my arm in the testing spot and it buzzes and the light turns yellow. My mom who has darker skin than I does the exact same thing and it beeps and the light turns green.
                              I know that if you have dark skin you can't use this product, but I have the lightest skin ever. (In fact all of the makeup I try on is too dark even in the lightest shade; so I have to buy white makeup to mix with the lightest shade.)
                              SO BOTTOM LINE IS BEWARE BECAUSE IF YOUR SKIN IS LIGHTER THAN NORMAL IT WON'T WORK!
