You’d need dozens of expensive light therapy treatments over months at a specialist clinic to achieve long-term hair removal! Or would you? At-home IPL devices have become far more readily available and affordable over the last decade or so. Thinking about dipping your toe into the wonderful world of at-home IPL hair removal? Let us show you around…

ipl IPL or intense pulse light works by flashing a multi-spectrum light at hair through a variety of wavelengths, these wavelengths target the pigment in the hair, turning into heat which damages the hair and its follicle. By damaging the follicle, IPL breaks the cycle of hair regrowth and provides permanent visible hair removal.

An important aspect of IPL use at home is ensuring it is safe and effective for your skin tone and hair colour. The Braun Silk-expert is the only IPL with skin tone sensing SensoAdapt™ technology, as it glides across your skin delivering multi-spectrum light flashes it reads your skin tone 80 times per second and adapts the flashes it emits to your pigment, for the safest and best results.
