Are Hair Removal Devices Safe?
First and Foremost, it is important to use the device correctly. Please read the instructions that come with the device and follow clearly. If used correctly, the at-home hair removal devices are generally safe to use! This does not mean, however, that it won't come with any side effects.
Following IPL and Laser treatment it is not unusual to experience slight tenderness and redness of your skin, possibly accompanied by very slight swelling. This can be alleviated by applying a cooling, soothing antiseptic gel and should clear up within one or two days.
There is a chance, also, that you may see slight pigment change (either darker or lighter patches), which should fade within a few weeks.
You might be wondering if there are any cases when IPL and Laser are not suitable. We suggest you read our blog post about IPL and Laser and different skin tones.
