The area being treated

If the IPL is to be used in a susceptible part, ensure you use an easy-to-handle IPL device to keep light concentrated in that particular area. The Bareskin IPL laser is easy to handle and can be used to maneuver those intricate areas.

The size of the area being treated

If the area is relatively bigger than the torso, ensure that the power source is near a comfortable area and the power cord is long enough. With different intensity levels, the Bareskin IPs device usage is as easy as starting your favorite movie. Next, slowly place the devices on the area you wish to shave and achieve that hairless skin look.

User friendly

It should not take rocket science to use an IPS machine. All instructions should be covered in the user manual directly and straightforwardly that the client can understand. The steps involved should be as easy as plugging it in the power source and holding the power button then you are set to start your session.


We all want to save money. An IPL device is an investment.  Before making a purchase, ensure that the answers to the following questions satisfy your pocket needs.

What is the purchase fee? Does it require servicing, and how frequent is the servicing? How good is their warranty policy? A good IPL laser, like the Bareskin, will have satisfactory answers to all these questions.

Service and support

Unlike a bicycle, you cannot take your laser to any mechanic. If you have questions about the device, the company should be at your disposal at any given moment to avoid the frustration that comes with trying to figure out a problem that can be solved with a single phone call. Ensure that you read all product reviews and client feedback before making your purchase.

How Does Laser at Hair Removal Work? (and does it work?)

In this process of hair removal, the main principle is the manipulation of light wavelength in which pulses of light are used to destroy hair follicles. The light travels through the skin, where the melanin contained in the hair absorbs it. The light is then converted into heat. This will cause localized damage to the hair follicle and not affect the rest of the skin.

Bareskin IPL uses xenon flash lamps to emit a full light spectrum. It is useful for large diameter targets.

It can be difficult to destroy every hair follicle. If the hair follicle is damaged and not destroyed, chances are hair regrowth will occur. However, statistics have shown that with the use of the Bareskin IPL laser in 4 to 8 treatment periods, there is a roughly 89% reduction in hair growth and an astounding 96% reduction in 12 treatment sessions.

How Is the Bareskin IPL Laser Used?

I. Preparation
Before getting started, ensure the area to be worked on is clean.
For all-out efficiency, cautiously shave the region. Please ensure that you stay away from plucking or waxing. The device works on the hair follicles, and these practices will render it useless. Using a clean towel, dry the area before the treatment starts.

II. Treatment level assortment
The Bareskin IPL laser has 1 to 5 energy levels, with one being the lowest and five being the highest. For beginners, the lowest level is recommended. Then, progressively move to a higher setting if need be.

III. Plugin the device and begin
Before starting, ensure that your protective glasses are on. The device should be at a 90-degree angle against the skin, then start working in a spherical motion. Make sure that you evenly go over the area.

For desired results, treat the spot 2-3 times per week for the first two months, and results will be visible if correctly done in a month or so. After 4-6 treatments, the hair follicles will start to deactivate, and any kind of growth will stop leading to a more refined and lighter appearance.

The procedure will require the use of a piece of twisted thread to run over the hair pulling out from its roots.  It is hygienic and chemical-free but equated to at-home laser removal; it will cause reddening of the skin and acne breakouts.

Use of hair removal cream
This is like shaving without the razors. The chemical used dissolves the hair, which is then wiped off. It can be done at home but is time-consuming.
