It was hard waiting the 2 weeks till my second treatment with the Remington iLight! I just can’t imagine any other cirumstance where I would be all happy to jump in the shower to shave, lol. So I did my legs and bikini area on a level 1 for my first IPL treatment. Did I notice any difference? Well, yes and no. On my legs I can see that the hair is little bit finer and there are a few areas where it grew back sparser. Which means that the dreaded black dots aren’t as noticeable after I shave! YES! My bikini area hasn’t changed as far as I can tell, then again, it’s a lot easier to examine your legs than… well you know.
So like I told you in my first Remington iLight post, I prepared by shaving the areas I plan to treat, making sure my skin was clean and dry…and I had an assistant this time. More on that in a minute. I also decided to do my underarm area this go round. I’m not sure why I skipped it before? Not thinking I guess. I decided to go for level two today. It felt the same, until I finished my legs. I felt it a little more in the bikini area, since that is more sensitive. I went back down to level 1 for my underarms. It was the first time I zapped there so I started at the lowest level. I again followed with an aloe-based lotion. Time-wise it still took me about 20 or so minutes, even adding another treatment zone. I am just as impressed this week at how easy the whole process is. The thought of dramatically reducing body or having permanent results is just too wonderful. I am already looking forward to the 3rd time with the Remimgton iLight as I should certainly be seeing some real results by then! There are several ways that the iLight is different than other home use machines… get the facts HERE.
Oh, and I forgot to say that I got a pair of tanning goggles after my first time. The light is bright when it flashes and my sunglasses were fine but with the goggles, the strap keeps them in place when bending. Just an FYI.
See you in two weeks! Smoother….
