Philips Lumea precision plus - help!

I am very pale with dark hair and need to wax facial hair at least every 3 weeks. I've bought this to treat my whole body but need some advice from those who own one!

I shaved as per the instructions and then followed the instructions but all the hair seems to be growing back as usual. Obviously I wasn't expecting to be hair free instantly but does this sound right? And do I just keep shaving until the next treatment in 1.5 weeks? I'm a bit loathed to keep shaving my face and bikini line!

I have the Boots one, and admittedly haven't used it on my face, but it took about 3-4 applications before I noticed reduced hair growth (the Boots one suggests a weekly regime for 13 weeks, then once a month for maintenance - I believe the Lumea has a different schedule).

I have the Philips one. I think, actually, it feels like it is all growing back but in fact it's not. I didn't use any other hair removal (also like you, dark hair, pale skin, facial wax every three weeks) and now 2 months later it's virtually gone. But I was a bit hairy until after the second treatment. Luckily we were ok holiday at centre parcs and saw no one we knew so I didn't mind. I would continue doing it every two weeks as it says. It's the best thing I've done in years I'm sure you won't regret it.
