Philips ReAura: What’s In The Box

As mentioned earlier, I was very excited at the arrival of my ReAura today. I’m going to spend the next couple of days watching the how-to DVD, reading the impressively comprehensive instruction manual and getting to grips with my new favourite thing before lasering the bejesus out of my skin. So it’s safe to say expect plenty of updates, progress reports, thoughts on the experience of using it and anything else I learn along my ReAura journey.

I’m so excited about this gadget; having been recommended Fraxel laser on many occasions by various dermatologists to treat my post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH or post-acne scarring), I can’t wait to see what impact the ReAura has. Whilst the ReAura isn’t essentially marketed at this type of pigmentation, I talked through the possibilities of what this machine can do with a Philips Skincare Specialist (a must if you’re considering purchasing this machine as Keira – the lady I spoke to – is highly trained and able to answer any questions you may have) and as I mentioned I have PIH, Keira believes that the ReAura would help. Not only that, but it will also address my other skin issues including the fine lines I have (sadly) appearing on my forehead and around my mouth. It’s also aimed at improving the overall texture and tone of the skin and being absolutely skin obsessed (I spent years battling acne and I’m finally at a point in my life where I can joyfully focus on the many other facial skin flaws I have, since the acne is now under control) I honestly cannot wait to start using this machine since the reviews have been so impressive. It’s also safe to say that the long-suffering boyfriend and couldn’t-care-less-about-your-blog mother have both decided they have things that they want treated, so expect a lot of pictures of the various Geek family members. So! Without further ado, whatever ado may be, here’s what arrived today:

    Can’t wait to hear whether this laser works for pigmentation! I have a lot of freckles. Would love to hear if it works on them.

    I’m considering buying the reaura but I’ve heard there are a couple of areas you can’t use it on the face (lip line and under eye area). I would like to use the reaura in order to prevent wrinkles from forming around the eye area such as crow’s feet, etc. Could you tell me if the reaura is suitable for this type of treatment?
    Thanks

    With regards to the pigmentation it’s definitely too soon to tell but I’m optimistic!

    You can’t use it in the hollow of the eyes where there’s no bone, but you can use it anywhere that’s solid behind, if that makes sense. So for me, there’s about 3mm next to each eye that’s hollow before the eye socket where I can’t use it, but the rest of the face it can be used. It can also be used on the lip lines just not on the lips themselves.

    I’ve had two treatments and the lines around my eyes have practically disappeared. It’s astonishing! I’ll be posting a lot more detail about what I’ve experienced so far in my next ReAura blog 🙂 xx

    Can’t wait to hear how you get on. It’s so expensive but it will be worth it if it works!
