Thank you for your inquiry. The device should NOT be used around dark spots, including the nipples, as these areas may have darker skin and using the i-Light Pro there could cause skin swelling, temporary blisters, or could change the color of your skin.

Question

A few dark hairs among fine hair

Hello!
I have IPL 6000F. I want to treat a few dark hair that grow among fine hair. I do not want to shave the fine hair or treat them. What should I do? I thought of cutting each hair as low as possible (so I do not have to shave). But how can I prevent fine hair from treatment? By covering them with something? Is cardboard going to work or is it possible that it might start burning or something? What would you suggest in this case?
Thank you!

Thank you for your inquiry. We suggest covering the area with a small towel and work around it. Do not let the i-Light flash over the towel. If you need further assistance, please contact us.

Question

Can I use moisturizer/lotion prior to treatment

I prefer to use in-shower moisturizer, immediately after shaving. Will that interfere with the effectiveness of the IPL? Can I used the moisturizer on an area that I plan to treat? I know that use of any lotions is prohibited before a laser treatment (I know they aren't the same.)

You can moisturize afterwards, however, if skin is sensitive may be best to use an un-fragranced, hypo-allergenic product. Just don't moisturize before a treatment because the lotion could clog the skin contact sensors. Prior to treatment, the skin should be recently shaved, clean, and free of any topical substances.

Question

How much space should be given around a tattoo to avoid burning and possible scarring of a tattoo?

I have a tattoo right below the top of the bikini line but do not want to destroy my tattoo or skin by not giving adequate space around the tattoo. Can I possibly cover the tattoo and avoid issues?

Thank you for your inquiry. Covering the tattoo before use would be a great idea. Otherwise, just be sure the nose cone window doesn't touch the tattoo. Because the i-Light works off the pigmentation, the skin around your tattoo is safe.

I touch the hand held probe to my skin and it does not flash. It just makes a groaning sound like something is wrong. I have dark hair and light skin. By touching my forearm to the base I can start it and the green lights illuminate.

Question

When will the IPL 6000F for face and body be available in the US as it is now in the UK?

I understand there is a newer model quartz system which offers 65,000 flashes and the ability to use it on facial hair below the cheekbones. I don't see it on the Remington site, but found it via Google.

Looking to buy a quartz IPL, but don't want to get the 6000Q and then have the 6000F come out.

Back Hair vs. Chest Hair

For a man, can you tell me why it is not cleared to be used on the back? How is the skin different on the back versus the chest? What if you tried a small area before doing the whole thing or should it really not be even tried on the back?

It is intended for use on naturally black or brown hair. Do not use i-Light Pro on white or gray hair because it will not work. IPL is less effective on lighter colors, such as blond or red hair.

Sun exposure causes high levels of melanin to be present and exposes the skin to higher risk of burns or blisters following treatment. Do not use if you have a sun burn.
