IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light technology. Home IPL hair removal devices apply very gentle pulses of light to the hair root. This makes the hair go into its resting phase: the hair you have falls out, and gradually your body grows less hair in that area.
That smoothness lasts a long time, too. The result of 14 years of research, Philips Lumea Prestige delivers a whopping 8 whole weeks of freedom from hair after the first four treatments*. It’s not just for legs either: smart curved attachments allow you to reach and safely treat your underarms, bikini area and face. So IPL really can take the place of shavers, wax treatments or epilators.
