Permanent gential hair removal in ABDL section
I'd liked to have posted this update into there but its locked. -.-
I wasn't into this kind of thing but the threads progress made me rethink my position. Now I bought one of these:
A remington Remington IPL6000 i-Light Pro at an Amazon bargain 40% discount because the packaging was damaged. Strange but its in a full working condition and I already tried it out two times.
The flash is reeeeeeeealy bright and you should avoid direct or indirect looks at all costs, even with closed eyes it would be a bad idea to point your face to the xenon heads direction, just for safeties sake.
It has a skin sensor on the base of the device. Some people in reviews mistakenly tried to activate the device by putting the region of skin on it that they want to operate the device on. Thats nonsense. You can just put your finger or arm on the sensor to turn it on. Its a safety feature, the device won't turn on if your skin is too dark.
The region you want to flash must not be sore (no rash etc), be freshly shaved, free of pimples and inflamed follicles. Especially dark spots like moles should be avoided, since the accumulated pigmentation can absorb too much of the light energy and give you a good burn. Not funny at all.
There are accessories available that can help reduce pain and get a better effect out of the process. Ultrasound transmission gel is one of these. Keep it inside your fridge prior to use. This greatly cools down your skin and reduces the resulting temperature spike. Additionaly you can buy nonprescriptional creme that contains lidocaine, which numbs the skin to a degree. Recommended for sensitive people like myself. I can't bear pain levels that others would barely feel. You should massage this into your skin 30 minutes before using the IPL-device.
Keep your device away from children, pets, dirt and moisture. Storing it in the bathroom, where the atmosphere reaches 100% humidity on a regular basis due to showering, might be a bad idea.
The flash window mirror at the tip of the operating head must be kept clean at all times. Check before each use, and don't touch the glass with your bare skin.
Never operate a broken device. If the glass is shattered or damaged in any other way, replace the xenon cartridge with a spare one. (These must be replaced after 1500 flashes anyway)
Last but not least: I'm a 35 year old male with bright skin. The flashes HURT. Reportedly, female users are experiencing generally less to no pain at all due to different skin/subcutane tissue composition. I got no irritated skin or other side effects, but you should make sure if your body isn't prone to this by testing a very small area and wait a few days to see if something bad happens.
I tried the device on plain, dry skin. I will buy lidocaine cream and ultrasonic transmission gel for sure.
Will report back later when first visual success ensues.
