At-home IPL hair re­moval

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Stellar - - Beauty -

In­tense pulsed light (IPL) is not a per­ma­nent hair-re­moval method, but it will pro­duce last­ing hair re­duc­tion on fair skin tones with dark hair. Ad­min­is­tered pro­fes­sion­ally, IPL can be­come ex­pen­sive, but this tool for at-home use of­fers the same ben­e­fits for a one-off cost. An in­fin­ity bulb means there are no re­place­ment ex­penses, and there are two at­tach­ments: one for the body and one for the face. An in-built safety mech­a­nism helps the de­vice ad­just power as it moves around the skin, and a skin con­tact sen­sor en­sures the flash only ap­pears once the de­vice is cor­rectly po­si­tioned. The down­sides: you will need as­sis­tance when treat­ing hardto-reach places, like the backs of the legs; there is mild dis­com­fort (switch to the gen­tle set­ting if you’re sen­si­tive); ); and, , alas, , it still ll won’t work on fair hair.
