REMINGTON iLIGHT Face and Body for Home Use
The Remington iLIGHT Face and Body is a new breakthrough product that uses Intense Pulsed Light ("IPL") to remove unwanted hair at-home. The Remington iLIGHT Face and Body utilizes the same clinically-proven technology that professional dermatologists and salons use, but optimized for personal treatment of smaller areas in the privacy and comfort of your own home. Unlike most at-home hair removal methods, the Remington iLIGHT Face and Body doesn’t cut or pull out hair; it actually uses light energy to work below the skin’s surface to disable active hairs at the root. You should gradually notice fewer hairs in the treatment area within a few weeks, with results generally improving over time.
The Remington iLIGHT Face and Body is intended for use on:
• Female Facial Hair (cheeks, sideburns, chin, neck areas, and above the lips); with the Facial LIGHT Cap.
• Male and Female Body Hair (underarms, bikini line, and on legs, arms, stomach and chest) with the Body Cap.
How Does Remington iLIGHT Face And Body Work?
Light-based hair removal is a well established technology that has been in use worldwide for over 15 years. The Remington iLIGHT Face and Body uses this technology to flash your skin with an intense pulse of light. The energy in the pulse works under the surface of your skin to target hairs at the root, helping to stop their growth. Because the energy in the pulse of light targets dark coloring, it works best on darker hair. To avoid targeting (and possibly damaging) dark skin, you should use the Remington iLIGHT Face and Body only on light-to-medium skin tones.
How Many Treatments are Needed?
Individual hairs go through a continuous growth cycle with phases of active growth and phases of rest. Like other laser or light-based treatments, the Remington iLIGHT Face and Body affects only hairs that are in the active growth phase. Your initial regimen should be spread out over 1 month to ensure that you target the most number of active hairs (including those that recently cycled from the resting phase).
We recommend that you use the Remington iLIGHT Face and Body once a week, every other week over one month (for a total of three treatments) on each area. If you have redness, blistering or other skin irritation in the treatment area, DO NOT perform treatment. Wait until the skin returns to normal before using REMINGTON iLIGHT Face and Body again.
Use the Treatment Record Cards to help keep track of your treatments. Results aren’t immediate, but you should have noticeably fewer hairs within 1 to 2 weeks after you start treatment. During this time, it may look like the hair is still growing, but it is actually being “pushed out.” You may or may not see these hairs fall out.
What Is Remington iLIGHT Face And Body Used For? (Indications)
The Remington iLIGHT Face and Body is an over-the-counter device indicated for the removal of unwanted body and or facial hair in adults with Fitzpatrick skin types I – IV. The Remington iLIGHT Face and Body is also intended for permanent reduction in unwanted hair. Permanent hair reduction is defined as the long-term stable reduction in the number of hairs regrowing when measured at 6, 9, and 12 months after the completion of a treatment regimen.
REMINGTON iLIGHT Face and Body is intended for use only on light to medium skin tones. To determine if your Skin Tone is suitable to use with REMINGTON iLIGHT Face and Body, compare your skin in the intended treatment areas with the Skin Tone Chart below. If it matches the Light to Medium Skin Tones below, you can use REMINGTON iLIGHT Face and Body. If your Skin Tone in the intended treatment area matches the Dark Skin Tones below, DO NOT use REMINGTON iLIGHT Face and Body.
REMINGTON iLIGHT Face and Body also has a built-in SKIN TONE TESTER that is designed to help prevent flashing on skin that is too dark for treatment. Test each different area you wish to treat with the Skin Tone Chart and SKIN TONE TESTER before treating. Some areas are darker than others.
If you have tanned skin in the intended treatment area, DO NOT use REMINGTON iLIGHT Face and Body in those areas as your skin may be too dark for treatment. You should wait until your tan has completely faded from any intended treatment area before using REMINGTON iLIGHT Face and Body.
The light energy targets dark coloring in hair, and therefore works best on DARKER HAIR (black, dark brown, brown or dark blond). DO NOT use REMINGTON iLIGHT Face and Body on LIGHTER HAIR (light blond, red, grey or white hairs or “peach fuzz”). REMINGTON iLIGHT Face and Body will not work on LIGHTER HAIR.
Male & Female Body Sites
The REMINGTON iLIGHT Face and Body is intended for use on Male and Female Body hair on underarms, bikini line, legs, arms, chest and stomach. If you have unwanted DARKER HAIR in any of these areas, the illustration below lists the typical number of flashes needed to cover a 1.5” x 2” treatment area. Treat in a GRID-LIKE PATTERN – slight overlaps are OK, but DO NOT flash the same EXACT spot multiple times during one treatment session. Record treatments in the TREATMENT CARDS.
Note: DO NOT physically mark the treatment area with grid pattern as this could cause injury to the skin.
Female Facial Sites
REMINGTON iLIGHT Face and Body is intended for use on female facial hair on the cheeks, sideburns, chin, neck areas, and above the lips (see illustration). If you have unwanted DARKER HAIR in any of these areas, the illustration below lists the typical number of flashes to treat the entire site (NOTE: for spot treatments of unwanted hair, fewer flashes may be needed.) Record treatments in the TREATMENT CARDS. DO NOT use REMINGTON iLIGHT Face and Body on or around EYES, EYE LASHES or EYE BROWS. Doing so can cause serious and permanent eye injury.
