[REVIEW]: iluminage Precise Touch Permanent Hair Reduction Device


iluminage Precise Touch
Permanent Hair Reduction Device

Major embarrassing fact about me (as the device can already sort of provide as a hint), I am super super hairy! I have hairy arms all over my arms and legs! Plus the fact that I'm asian, the hairs that actually do grow out on my arms and legs, are majorly BLACK! MAKING THEM SUPER OBVIOUS! :( 

I've tried shaving them back when I was in high school, but it just kept growing back. And I hated how the hairs that grew out felt really pokey and it seemed darker. BUT, please know that when people say your hairs grow out thicker and blacker everytime you shave, that is a total MYTH! Google that up and you will understand why it seems like it's thicker and blacker. 

K, before I sidetrack. I stopped shaving and just let my arm hair grow out and well, basically let them be. LOL. I am a super lazy girl and maintenance just doesn't happen with me. So, when I received the iluminage Precise Touch I was SUPER EXCITED! They did not pay me to write this review, this is purely my own honest opinion!



WHAT DO YOU GET IN THE BOX?

WHAT IS THE RECOMMENDED USAGE PERIOD?
This is where I touched on a little in my video. As stated in my video, different targeted areas recommends different periods of use.

FOR FACE:
The Precise Touch can be used on women's facial hair below the cheek line;

  • upper lip
  • sideburns
  • jawline
  • chin
  • neck
When treating these areas, the recommended treatment schedule can be more frequent, with up to 2 - 3 times per week for 6 weeks if desired. Additional treatments may be needed for optimal results. 

FOR BODY:
The Precise Touch can be used on the body for men and women;
  • arms
  • legs
  • underams
  • bikini area 
When treating these areas, the recommended treatment schedule is one treatment per week for 7 weeks. Once the 7 weeks are up, you can continue to use the Precise Touch for touch-ups or as needed. 

Additional information can be found here.

CLOSER LOOK AT THE DEVICE:

NOTE: Whilst using the device, it is important to remember NOT to cover up the cooling vents (pictured above). This is where the device cools itself during use. 

The control panel. 
The elos button controls the intensity of the treatment from LOW - HIGH

The treatment window.
The two metal plates surrounding the treatment window is called the Radio Frequency (RF) Bars.

HOW TO USE YOUR PRECISE TOUCH:

Do watch the video below that I've filmed, showing you how to use the device. 




Couple of points that you need to take note of before you start your treatment:
  • always shave your hair from the areas you want to treat
  • clean your skin and dry it with a towel 
  • do NOT use the Precise Touch if you feel your skin is irritated from shaving/epilating/waxing. 

What I like to do after each treatment is to apply BODY LOTION over the area that I just treated. This will keep my skin feeling moisturized and supple. 

MY REVIEW/RESULTS.
As I've mentioned in the video, the results shown is based on my own treatment of only 4 treatments over a period of 3 months, which is super NOT CONSISTENT and is not recommended for you to be that lazy with your hair reduction journey. LOL. 

But, even so, my results are super promising!! And after seeing my own comparison photos, I believe that with a more regular and consistent use of the Precise Touch, my arms and legs will be PERMANENTLY HAIR FREE!! 

What I felt during the treatment is just a warm sensation every time the Precise Touch releases its IPL and RF on the area. It is ZERO PAIN and it really works! 

NOTE: I only used the Precise Touch on my LEFT ARM and left my right arm for comparison purposes 

Left Arm

Right Arm



The pictures above are super amazing!! Yes?!

My left arm, although it's still hairy (remember I only used it 4 times over 3 months) there are certain spots where there are NO HAIRS GROWING OUT anymore!! It is seriously amazing and to me, it's a miracle that it could even be possible for me to be hairless!

My right arm is at it's normal state, hairy as hell!

So, in conclusion, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you give the Precise Touch a try! You can check out the device on the Clariancy Website on how to order :)

There is so much promise to this device and I can't wait to update again after the end of 7 weeks of my treatment! It really does work and it's super, super convenient! You get to remove and reduce the unwanted hairs all in the comfort of your own home! I don't think it can get any more convenient or easier than that.



Thank you so much to the team at Clariancy for sending me this product! I absolutely love it! As I've said before, I am not paid by them to write this review, they only sent me the product to test it out so anything I've written or said in the video is entirely my own honest opinion :D

Thank you for reading!
Till next time,
