I have started my ipl on 6.6.07
They are using the ecolite v7 machine.
1st session had done is full legs and full bikini area.
Took approximately 1 hour.
Must admit it was painful, especially the bikini area.
But I would say itís bearable.
Using aloe Vera 100% to help keep my skin from drying out,
I think using aloe Vera helps.
Having my full arms, under arm and full face done next in 2 weeks time.
Each area will be covered on 4 weekly bases.
Before I started my ilp treatment,
I Google searched for info on ipl,
In my findings they are not enough customer experiences on web.
I am going to regularly post my experience,
Every site I have posted questions asking if they knew of this ecolite v7 machine,
Answer has been NO.
Advise given to me has been do not go for ipl as it is not any good.
I have been advised to go for laser treatment.
Please do not think I am not great full for advice that has been given to me.
But I have decided to go for ipl because it is cheaper and I understand itís less painful. (I have gone for a package deal)
I think my skin type is 3 or 4 (Asian), I am female, age 37, live in UK.
Hope this post helps others to decide what is best for them.

Others will be able to decide for themselves better after they hear your story from beginning to end. Since this is the beginning of your story, we are anxious to hear about the middle part and the ending, so I do hope you pop in and let us know about your success. I have never heard of this IPL. Do you have any more information about it? Is it new? What company makes it?

Can you submit some before pictures by any chance?

Thanks for your post and hopefully you'll report back!

good luck on your treatments. my only request is for you to please post that you were advised NOT to go with an IPL machine if (when) your results are not what you expect. you could have read any experiences of anyone who tried any of the IPLs on these forums. we have yet to see a positive one or one where someone got better results with IPL over laser.

the problem we have often is that people not educated on LHR choose to go the cheaper way even when advised otherwise by unbiased professionals on these forums, and then come back here to say that "laser" (when in fact it was a poor IPL machine) doesn't work. As long as you keep your facts straight and realize what you're getting into and don't blame the industry in general afterwards for lack of results, it's fine.

using a white or red pencil is best for marking the area.

what percentage reduction are you seeing on each area?

first 3 treatmants every 4 wks,
4th treatmant done 5wks.
5th done after 6wks
going again now after 12 wks full arms/face.( but a touch up was done on arms were hair was growing.so u could say 6wks in area were touch up was done. but it was only a small area,note not the whole arm)
each time i am going to make a visit i am going to tell her go over the area were the hair is still dark growing patches.
i feel as if these areas are the ones that have been missed out.
on each visit i have upper part body done
2nd visit have lower part body done.
pls note the settings are incresed each visit.
using 16 bikini. tried 18 and i got burnt. could not tell at time cuz using numbing cream emla.(i dont blame tech cuz i asked her use higher settings)
18 legs
16/17 arms
face not sure settings.
only use numbing cream on part face/full bikini and underarms only.
WARNING: please all do not use numbing cream on all body as in my reaserch i found it was very dangerause.
people have died due to using to much cream or ended up in casulaty.

I would advise you to keep spacing 8-12 weeks at minimum. 4-6 week intervals are too short and don't really give you an idea of how much reduction you're actually getting, as you should not have any hair back yet at that point. shedding only completes at 3-4 week period. then you should expect a hairfree period and should only have enough hair for another treatment at 8-12 weeks.
