Several readers have been in touch asking for an update on the Iluminage TOUCH device that uses Radio Frequency and IPL technology to banish hair growth.
Iluminage TOUCH has worked spectacularly well on my legs – apart from one or two strays where I am happy to believe that I missed them in the zapping, there is nothing in the way of regrowth after the allotted time of 8 weeks. Bear in mind, however, that I have treated my legs with an IPL device a couple of years ago, so that may very well be playing a part. BUT, so far, it hasn’t worked on my underarms. The growth is possibly finer and slower, but it’s certainly still there.
Iluminage recommends that you wax or shave before treating any area – but I am sure that waxing works a lot better than just shaving. However, as we all know, you need a certain growth point before you can wax again and if you have to keep shaving it, you’re caught in a vicious circle. I am still convinced though that Iluminage TOUCH can work so I am starting the underarm cycle again, just in case there is some driver error!

I think in reality, an 8 week cycle to banish hair is optimistic at best but because it’s worked so well on my legs, I’m keeping the armpit faith! I will re-review the device in another couple of months.
