Zapping your unwanted hairs with laser light is the way to permanently eliminate them. However, this typically costs a small fortune in a beauty salon with many visits needing to be scheduled.
The Rio Intense Pulse Light Hair Remover uses strong light technology to allows you to reap the benefits in the privacy of your own home at a schedule that suits yourself. The machine is a slightly bulky white and green box with a wand attached via cable (which I found to be slightly too short). Security features such as a key prevent little fingers, or unwanted users from gaining access.
The wand (where the bulb is located) covers a relatively large area (35mm x 14mm) and claims to treat up to 180 hairs in a few seconds. When you pass the wand over an area, you will see a slight mark indicating that the area has been treated. This allows you to position the wand on the next area. It is a very simple device to use, but be warned, there is an extensive list of user precautions and warnings. Take the time, read the leaflet, watch the enclosed DVD, do the patch test and then get started.
Regular use of the machine does definitely result in reduced hair growth but it can take up to six months of treatment treatment to achieve lasting results. In short, it is user-friendly, if a little clunky, and definitely gives you a salon feeling in your own home.
