Classification of household hair removal instruments:
1. Laser hair removal device. Laser hair removal is the same principle as medical laser hair removal. The laser has the ability
to penetrate the skin, which is called the "selective photothermodynamic principle". Using this characteristic of the laser,
it is irradiated on the hair removal site. The laser is absorbed by the melanin in the hair and converted into heat energy to
destroy the hair follicle. , so as to achieve hair removal effect. This is why the hair removal device has requirements for skin color.
The whiter the skin, the better the effect. Because dark skin absorbs part of the energy, which affects the hair removal effect.
2. Intense pulse hair removal device. Intense Pulse Depilator, also known as IPL (Intense Pulse) or HPL (Home Pulse).
Its principle is actually similar to the laser hair removal device, which uses the action of light. The difference is that the
laser wavelength of the laser hair removal device is fixed, while the wavelength of the intense pulse hair removal device
gradually weakens the energy after entering the body, so the use experience in a short time is more comfortable. In short,
strong pulses are less painful.
The photon hair removal device directly illuminates the hair follicles of the body. When purchasing a photon hair removal device,
