Today I’ve got quite an exciting post and something I’ve been working on a while. A couple of months ago, I started a collaboration with Sensica which their products are available from Boots. They kindly gifted me a Sensica Sensilight RPL device which reduces hair growth permanently. This is something which I have wanted to try for the longest time as hair removal can really become quite a chore. I like to keep on top of hair removal as it makes me feel so confident having smooth and hair-free legs. So I’m hoping a device like this will make thing so much easier. I’ve been using this product for just over 10 weeks using the product fortnightly so I thought I would share how my experience was.
The Sensica Sensilight 300,000 flashes device uses RFL technology (Reactive Pulsed Light) to permanently reduce hair growth with spa-grade results. From what I can gather, the device works best on those with dark hair and a pale complexion, so I would hope that I am the perfect candidate. Upon starting with the device, it noted that you would notice results between 6-8 weeks with treatments been two weeks apart. The Sensica Hair Removal device can also be used on most areas of the body including the bikini line and underarm. Additionally, the device can be used on the face but that’s not something I have tried. To prepare before treatments, you need to remove all hair and make sure the skin isn’t wet or irritated. I thought I’d write this post diary style to document how I got on each fortnight.
My first treatment was a few days after my patch test. I’ve got to say the flashes are a little startling and you need to be really careful not to look directly into the light otherwise it could really damage your sight. Once you got into the swing of things, it was super easy to use and you could do both legs within around 10 minutes. I’m also doing my underarms too which I’m really hoping shows strong results. The device has two different energy levels, as it was my first go, I did have it on the lower setting and plan to increase as we go further into the weeks.
Other things to note was that it was slightly burning in certain areas which I had read was normal. It wasn’t through the whole treatment just in certain areas. I’m also not too sure how consistent I was with going up and down the legs so who knows, it might be patchy in the end?!
In my second treatment, I definitely got more confident in what I was doing with the device. Again, I’m not too sure how consistent I was in certain areas but I didn’t want to go over areas twice as that can be damaging.
Going into week three, I was a little disappointed that I’d seen not really any results. I had to remind myself that I had only done two sessions and quite a long way to go in the process. I feel with each session, I’m getting better at reaching all areas and just been more consistent. I’m writing this 2 days after my third session and although hair has grown back on my underarms, it does look more sparse – so hopefully that’s a good sign!
Going into the fourth treatment, I’m starting to notice steady progress on my legs. Looking after this treatment, the re-growth on my legs is becoming a lot patchier, especially on my shins. Sadly, I’ve not really seen much more results with my underarms. The hairs are still regrowing with full force but just more sparse. I’m going to keep going and be persistent with the journey. I’m feeling pretty optimistic that if you do stick it out with these treatments that eventually you will see some serious changes.
This week I’ve seen the most difference. The lower half of my legs are pretty smooth with minimal hair growth since shaving a week ago. In some areas, it’s completely halted growth which is great! With my armpits, the growth is still there, I’d say it has slowed down slightly and looks patchier. There isn’t a huge difference but I’m going to persevere as I would love for it to work better on my armpits.
I’m really happy with the results I have been seeing so far. It’s taking 15 minutes of my time every other week and hopefully, these results will be permeant. Obviously, I was quite sceptical about these sort of products but seeing the halt in my leg hair growth has really impressed me. I’m still going to continue with the fortnightly treatments for now but they do advise going to maintenance treatments every month once you’re happy with results. I did a post about using this product on social media and got asked so many questions so hopefully this post has helped. If not, feel free to drop me a comment or DM me on social media.

How do you feel about hair removal? Would you use a device to permanently remove hair? or do you prefer other methods?
