How Does Laser at Hair Removal Work? (and does it work?)In this hair removal process, the main principle is the manipulation of light wavelength in which light pulses destroy hair follicles. First, the light travels through the skin, where the melanin contained in the hair absorbs it. Next, the light gets converted into heat. The heat will cause localised 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. Therefore, it is helpful for large diameter targets.
It can be challenging to destroy every hair follicle. However, if the hair follicle is damaged and not destroyed, hair regrowth will occur. However, statistics have shown that with 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 do I use the Bareskin IPL Laser machine?
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.s.
II. Treatment level assortment
The Bareskin IPL laser has 1 to 5 energy levels, with one lowest and five highest. For beginners, we recommend the lowest setting. Then, progressively move to a higher power setting.
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 deactivate, and hair growth will stop. In addition, laser hair removal will lead to a more refined and lighter appearance.

What are the alternatives to laser hair removal, and how do they compare.
This method involves the removal of 100% of hair in areas where waxing cannot be done, like the nipples and eyebrows. Then, an ultra-thin needle is used to deliver an electrical current that destroys the hair follicle. Electrolysis is highly effective but is known to be extremely painful and slow, and tedious.
Shaving and waxing
These two hair removal methods are effective and are very popular. However, they involve the use of a razor and wax, respectively. Compared to at-home laser removal, shaving is temporary and will lead to irritation of the shaved area, while waxing is extremely painful.
Threading is the standard method many women use to remove hair on their faces. The procedure will require using 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
Hair Removal Cream is like shaving without razors. The chemical used dissolves the hair, which the users then wipe off. It can be done at home but is time-consuming. If you compare it with other hair removal methods, hair removal cream consists of chemicals that dissolve the hair. It has a foul smell and can cause chemical burns. Some may also be allergic to the substances themselves. It should not be used on the face, genitals, and breasts, even if one is not allergic.
Dermaplanning is a simple method involving shaving off hair using a scalpel. It is safe and painless. However, using the Bareskin IPL laser will still be the better option as this practice leads to hair growing back with a rougher feel since the hair is sliced at a profound steep angle.
After considering the various At home hair removal methods, note that none of the alternative methods is as safe and efficient as using a Bareskin IPL laser. So get one today and start your regimen for safe, smooth, and glowing skin.
