A few things you need to know before doing at-home ipl hair removal (First)
We’ve all heard the myths – that unwanted body hair can be a thing of the past, all thanks to an at-home device that zaps away at the hair follicles. These devices have been on the market for a few years now。Like the home mini IPL hair removal instrument from Shenzhen Noble, which was born in 2016, is getting better and better.
To be honest, who doesn’t want to be hair free? Waking up in the mornings and knowing you can fling on a cute summer dress and not having to worry about shaving? Or that annoying moment when you realize you’ve left the house without seeing to your underarms, and you’re wearing a scrappy top…. notes to self to keep arms by side all day.
If you’re looking for a more permanent solution for unwanted body hair, then IPL at-home hair removal could be a really good solution for you. From our recent contacts and understanding, as well as some additional research, here are a few things you need to know about IPL.
15 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW
1.If you want results, you have to be consistent.
Yep, it’s not a magical device that you use once and then forget about it. In fact, I admit that not long after I published the aforementioned video, I kinda thought to myself, OK, job done. Well, no, it wasn’t. Because your hair follicles are on their own individual growth cycles, you have to continue ‘zapping’ (this is what I call the process, thanks to the flash of light which kind of ‘zaps’ your leg when you use the Lumea at home) every four weeks in order to maximise the potential of targeting the most follicles.
2. You’ll see permanent results from month three.
This does NOT mean you will be hair free after three months. This is what I originally thought. After the first few treatments, the impatient ones amongst us may be disappointed as you may not see much of a difference, but after the three-month mark, you will start to notice that a lot of your body hair is not growing back. My legs felt smoother and I could go far longer without shaving my underarms, and over time it just kept on getting better.
3. This is not a quick solution.
At home, you can make yourself comfortable and throw flowers into the bed (hehe is not real, but they look cute, aren't they?!) Enjoy the whole ipl hair removal process, the legs usually take 20 minutes, if you want to do it The speed of the armpit is much faster.
4. Spoiler Alert – it doesn’t actually work by Magic!
Although it certainly seems that way. But scientifically what is actually happening is that the laser light pulses from the convert to heat which stimulates the hair root, triggering it to go into the resting phase. The hair then falls out naturally and regrowth is slowed, and then totally prevented after a few uses.
5. Some hair and skin types are a little more tricky to treat.
Darker hair follicles are the easiest to treat, because the laser targets the hair’s pigment, while grey, blonde and red pigments can be tricky, as can darker skin tones.
However the ipl hair removal of Noble has five settings and clear instructions on which set to pick for each skin and hair type, and they also have a handy chart here which you can use to decide if the is right for you.
6. Autumn/Winter is the best time to start.
Because you have to be free of a tan, natural or fake when you use laser hair removal. The device works best when the contrast between your darker hair and lighter skin is greatest, and while the ipl hair removal of Noble is designed to work on darker skin tones too, it’s always safest to wait. So while I am still zapping my underarms at the moment, I’ll be starting on my legs again in Autumn.
7. My favorite thing – you can shave between IPL sessions!
Not just can, in fact, you must. The best thing to do is shave the day before you get zapping, or the morning of, so that you’re silky smooth ahead of the session.
