The Philips ReAura – What I’ve learnt About the At Home Skin Laser Over the Past 6 Years
I’m back using my ReAura. It is the most powerful beauty device I own. In fact, I'd go as far as to say it is THE most powerful home beauty device there has ever been - if you can get your hands on one, that is!
Philips discontinued the ReAura in 2014 (at £800 a pop it wasn't cheap), just three years after its launch - story here. The move came much to the disappointment of a cult fanbase – my ReAura reviews remain among my most popular posts of all time.
Impossible to buy new, a ReAura can fetch over £1,000 second hand on ebay!! So, if you own one, it was a sound investment. But I’d say the real value comes from using it, not selling it.
The ReAura is a REAL fractional laser, made in conjunction with Fraxel - the gold standard in fractional lasers. It's powerful. One dose of this gives my skin a zap of rejuvenating awesomeness that far outweighs topical creams. Period!
The only thing I'd say on treatment is: tread carefully. I do think the recommended protocol of twice a week for eight weeks is too much for some skins (including my own robust one). I'm now treating once every few weeks or so (judge as you go along) and the results I’m getting are impressive without the prolonged periods of redness I was getting before.
