Most people find tiny little black dots of inner growth on the skin after shaving or waxing quite annoying, and that gets in the way of having a satisfying hair-removal experience. The hair also seems to grow back immediately, leaving the body with prickly stubble. It is finally time to break free from the hassle of the daily hair removal routine with the Remington iLIGHT Pro Plus Quartz, an evolutionary device that uses scientifically-designed pulses of light to stop hair growth, revealing clear, smooth, beautiful skin.
This device uses the IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology to remove body hair. The technology uses an intense, visible, broad-spectrum pulse of light which in turns effectively prevents hair re growth. It leads to around 94% fewer hairs in just three treatments! The top layer of the skin, called epidermis becomes smooth, and the hair follicles in the lower layers of skin called dermis are targeted. Cosmetic surgeons and medical practitioners use IPL to perform various skin treatments for therapeutic and aesthetic purposes, including hair removal.
Upgraded Quartz Version
Remington iLIGHT Pro Plus Quartz Hair Removal System is an upgraded, newer device which is better than its previous counterparts. It uses Quartz instead of regular light bulbs for hair removal. Quartz is crystalline and much harder than glass, which is shown by the longer lasting nature of the quartz lamp versus the glass lamp. Additionally, due to the makeup of quartz, it allows a wider range of light to pass through it and therefore results in better hair removal that is long lasting.
With the Quartz, the hair growth is permanently reduced. You will still need to give yourself top up sessions as maintenance, but the hair which does grow back, will be much less thick, less dense and lighter in color. The Quartz also has much more flashes per bulb, so it will last much longer before the need for it to be replaced. If required, one can buy a replacement cartridge very easily.
Skin Compatibility Safety Features
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or ‘flash-lamp therapy’ is a non-invasive treatment that uses high intensity pulses of visible light to remove unwanted hair. The device is incredibly sleek, neat, and professional looking. It’s electronically powered so it does not need charging. So there is no hassle of charging the batteries, making it a great go-to device for frequent travelers.
The most important feature that this device has is the fact that it is FDA approved. Any device that is to be used on your skin should be safe enough and should be trustworthy. It is however still very important to read the instruction manual before starting on with the treatments. There are two types of sensors which makes sure your skin type is suitable. There is a Skin Contact Sensor, which means the device would only work if your skin is in the right contact with the device. This way, you would not waste flashes.
Some areas of skin are darker than others. The Skin Tone Sensor helps to decide if your skin tone is suitable for treatment. IPL technology does not work well with darker skin tones and gives optimal results on lighter skin tones. As with any new skin care product, it is recommended to test the device on a patch of skin before your first full treatment or before treating a new area.
There are five different intensity settings. Based on the comfort of the user, the setting can be high or low. A high energy level would obviously work faster and better but would not be very comfortable.

Customer’s Reviews and Conclusion
This device uses the same technology that is used by dermatologists. Remington iLIGHT has ProPulse technology, with output parameters and results similar to professional hair removal devices, at a fraction of the cost. The main upgrade in this new Remington device is that the Pro Plus Quartz operates at a higher power than other regular IPL hair removal devices, making it more effective.
Most users found the treatment sensation from the device quite comfortable, as compared to other hair removal techniques. Waxing and using razors are not only painful and time consuming but also leads to denser hair growth after some time. This IPL device leads to around 94% reduction in hair growth in just a few sessions. Users felt the hair that did grow back was less stubborn and less dark. They also felt their skin to be smoother than before. It is an electronic device, so the user never has to take a break between treatments to charge the device.
One drawback that can be considered is that it cannot be used on the face. This device is intended especially for body hair removal and works best on larger surfaces. Sometimes it is better to have one expert device for each area and this works best for body hair for both, male and female. Some users also felt it was a little expensive, but since this device is using advanced technology and Quartz bulbs, it has plenty of flashes to last for a long time.
This can be seen as a great beauty investment and a must-have for quick and convenient hair removal.
