Iluminage has launched two new luxury at-home laser devices in the UK.
The first is the Skin Smoothing Laser, a hand-held anti-ageing gadget designed for the face to target fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth.
Utilising professional laser technology and with 11 pending patents, the Skin Smoothing Laser is said to deliver “visibly smoother, firmer and younger-looking skin”, backed by clinical studies.
The product was designed by award-winning designer Karim Rashid who has created a device that is safe and easy-to-use at home. The laser is said to work by sending calibrated pulses of laser light to specific depths below the surface of the skin to help generate new collagen fibres therefore reducing wrinkle appearance.
Iluminage recommends using the device on clean dry skin in the evening and can be used up to five times a week.
In clinical studies 78% of women reported an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles in two weeks and 95% said they noticed significant improvement in 12 weeks.
The second device is the Touch Permanent Hair Reduction, an at-home permanent hair removal system.
Created for all skin tones and hair colours ranging from light to dark, the product uses elōs technology, created by scientists at Syneron who invented the intense pulsed light, to target hair follies deep in the skin.
The company recommends a course of seven treatments spread across six weeks. It can be used all over the body such as the legs, arms, underarms and bikini line as well as the face.
Iluminage also offers a skincare line featuring five products which have been designed to be used with the Skin Smoothing Laser. It includes Skin Prep Gentle Cleanser, Youth Cell Day Cream SPF15, Youth Cell Eye Cream, Youth Cell Night Cream and Youth Cell Concentrate.
Iluminage skincare products are priced at £22 for the cleanser to £65 for the concentrate. The Skin Smoothing Laser retails at £450 and Touch Permanent Hair Reduction is priced at £375. All products are available at Harrods and www.harrods.com. Visit www.iluminagebeauty.co.uk for more information about the brand.
