~ Remington IPL6000 iLIGHT Pro Laser Hair Removal System Review ~
Does laser hair removal work? With the Remington IPL6000Q it does.
The Remington IPL6000Q is a laser hair removal system designed for home use, saving you dollars at the salon as well as offering you complete privacy while doing the process yourself, in the comfort of your own home. It’s compact, light-weight and easy to use. The system operates on AC power, so there is no hassle about recharging batteries or spending money on battery replacement.
This is an FDA approved system developed by leading dermatologists, producing longer-lasting results in quick time with no mess and no fuss.
What Are The Benefits?
Other options for hair removal can be pretty ineffective. Yes, shaving certainly removes hair, but it can lead to rashes, ingrown hairs, cuts and abrasions, not to mention just being a harsh method in general. Also, once an area is shaved, the hair begins to grow back immediately. Other options such as waxing keep the hair away longer, but they are messy and painful.
With laser hair removal you avoid all that. It’s clean, virtually pain-free (bar some very mild pinpricks of pain), and it keeps the hair away for much longer periods. Sometimes, after regular use, the hairs will be permanently removed.
Both women and men can use the system to remove that unwanted body hair, keeping you and your partner looking your hair-free best.
Although there is an initial upfront cost to purchase one of these systems, they can save you dollars in the long run, both in salon fees as well as travel costs. No need to make appointments or sit in a salon waiting your turn. Simply turn it on and use it any time you desire.
You will start to see visible results and smoother skin within just a few weeks of using the laser system.
The system has a built-in skin tone detection feature to make sure your skin is compatible with laser treatment.
The bulbs will last for up to 30,000 flashes, which is way more than many of the competing models in this price point.
How To Use The iLIGHT Pro Plus Quartz
First, clean, shave and dry the area to be treated.
Place the head of the laser against the skin and listen for the chirping sound. Then hit the trigger to send out the laser flash.
There will be a very brief flash of light followed by warmth. Using an organised grid pattern, treat the entire area where you wish to be hair-free, but don’t treat the exact same spot multiple times in the one session.
It doesn’t work on light, grey or blonde hair.
It also doesn’t work on people with dark skin.
The manufacturers declare permanent hair removal after just 3 uses, but that’s not really true. It not only takes more than 3 applications to remove hair, you must keep on using it regularly to keep the area hair-free.
It’s not as effective at removing hair as the more professional models of laser hair removal found in salons, but it also costs a lot less than one of those systems, or a series of salon treatments.

With a 6 month financing option available to approved purchasers, making the purchase is made easier on the wallet. This is a good laser hair removal system for the money. Maybe not quite as effective as those you find in a salon, but it comes pretty close. There are more expensive models on the market for home use, but they are not necessarily any better than this one. It’s well worth the purchase price in my opinion.
