Home laser hair removal. What should I consider when choosing an epilator?

Until recently, laser hair removal was a procedure that could only be performed in good beauty salons or aesthetic medicine salons. Then epilation was performed on large and expensive equipment. Currently, lasers are available in convenient sizes, no bigger than a hairdryer, and you can also use them at home and easily perform full-body hair removal.

If you have been dreaming about smooth skin and painless hair removal for many weeks, then the laser epilator is the device for you. During operation, it uses the pulsed light method, or IPL, which allows you to work with laser waves of different lengths and propagate in different directions. Light is absorbed by melanin (the pigment responsible for skin color) and then converted into light energy. Thus, hair growth stops as the hair follicles are destroyed. Melanin absorbs the flash of light, so the darker the hair, the more effective epilation will be.

However, it should be remembered that the hair grows unevenly, so it is difficult to notice spectacular effects after the first use of the epilator. The first visible effect of laser hair removal is noticeable after about 8-10 weeks of regular use. Manufacturers often recommend using an epilator once every 2 weeks or once a week (but not more often). Laser hair removal IPL is absolutely safe for the skin, even very sensitive. It is only important to adjust the light intensity according to the type of skin and hair before starting the procedure to avoid irritation or possible burns. Light hair removal is an effective way to get rid of unwanted hair on various parts of the body, such as the legs, arms, face, or armpits.

What should I pay attention to when choosing a laser epilator?

When choosing a laser epilator, you should pay attention to proven and well-known brands that produce this type of equipment, for example, Babyliss, Braun, Philips, Rio, Remington. When choosing light equipment for hair removal, it is also good to pay attention to the number of pulses emitted by it, weight, power, and working area — it is desirable that it be as large as possible. A device with a long cable or completely wireless will be more convenient and convenient to use, and additional accessories, such as a special pad for removing facial hair, will allow you to perform a complete and, most importantly, safe depilation procedure for various parts of the body, even the most sensitive.

Laser epilator — what do we get in the kit?

IPL epilators are usually sold in a kit that includes various accessories, such as a power supply or charging station, a storage box, a cleaning brush, or an instruction manual. The device resembles a hairdryer, so it does not take up much space and can be freely stored, especially wireless models. There may also be additional attachments inside the package, which can be changed depending on where you want to perform laser hair removal. The larger tips are designed for larger areas, such as the legs or arms, and the smaller ones are designed for depilation of the delicate bikini area, face, or armpits. Some manufacturers also add safety glasses to their epilators, but the light emitted by the device is completely safe for the eyes, so you don't need to wear them.

How to use a laser epilator?

Using a laser epilator is intuitive. However, before starting the procedure, you should perform a test in the area where you want to remove the hair to make sure that the laser intensity level you choose matches the color of your skin. Before starting the procedure, it is recommended to remove the hair, for example, with a classic disposable razor. Using an epilator is very simple. Just tap the area you want to epilation and press the button(usually these types of devices have an indicator that turns green when the epilator is ready to use), which emits a beam of light accompanied by a characteristic flash. While epilation of a large part of your body, especially when you first come into contact with the device, can be a little tedious and time-consuming, regular use of the epilator will certainly allow you to quickly feel comfortable with the device.

A laser epilator is a device that is completely safe for the body, but in the case of very sensitive skin during epilation, you may feel a slight discomfort in the form of a slight tingling sensation. During treatment, a characteristic smell of burnt hair may also appear, especially on overgrown areas, but this should not be a cause for concern. When working with the epilator, avoid contact with water and the sensitive area around the eyes. Eyebrows, hair around the vagina or nipples are not subject to epilation. At the end of treatment, the IPL epilator should be placed in a dark and dry place, and before that, gently wipe with a soft cloth.
