The Idea Candidates For Laser Hair Removal At-home Systems

Although the laser or IPL hair removal at-home system was modified by the manufacturer to attempt to reduce the burning risk, but it simply isn't for everyone. Home IPL's are not super powerful, none the less the light is still can quickly absorbed by people with tanned or darker skin, and so there is a risk of getting burns, or of the skin getting discolored. This is why some home devices will shut themselves off if you attempt to use them on darker skin. The idea candidates are :

1. Skin Type & Hair Color


The good candidates of home laser is people who have light skin (white, ivory, beige and light brown) and naturally medium brown to black hair. The Fitzpatrick skin type is II, III, IV.

Fitzpatrick II
Skin Type II
Fitzpatrick III
Skin Type III
Fitzpatrick IV
Skin Type IV

2. Identify The Body Parts


Currently, the most home devices can not be used anywhere on the face. If you want to get rid of facial hair, we can only recommend Boots Smooth Skin , Philips Lumea Precision Plus IPL and Silk'n Flash & Go IPL. However, these devices still can not use it on your eyebrows or near your eyes, the eyebrow zapping is strictly forbidden.

In addition, all devices can not treat the Male Face and removing the beard area of hair, the skin may be injured because the hair in the beard area is too dense.

3. Enough Time & Avoid Sun Exposure


There are about 50-70% hair reduction after 6-8 home sessions and it will take 4-8 months. During this time you must need to avoid exposing the area you are treating to direct sunlight. And, of course, be sure to wear a hat and slather on an SPF of 30 or higher sunscreen if you absolutely have to go outside. If you have not enough time or cann't avoid sun exposure, home laser treatment is not right for you.

The Following Situations Would Not Be A Good Candidate

  • African-American, East Indian, Native American, or Pacific Islander descent.
  • Under 18 years of age.
  • Pregnant or nursing women.
  • Taking certain medications like birth control pills, acne medications or anti-depressants.
  • Diabetes, lupus, a heart condition or other medical problems.
