Melanin Targeting: The laser or intense pulsed light (IPL) in the device is absorbed by the melanin (pigment) in the hair.
Hair Growth Phases: Hair goes through different growth phases, including the anagen (active growth) phase, catagen (transitional) phase
Multiple Sessions: Laser hair removal is not a one-time procedure. You'll need multiple sessions, typically spaced 4-6 weeks apart
kin Tone and Hair Color: At-home devices work best on individuals with fair skin and dark hair.
Safety Precautions: Always read and follow the manufacturer's instructions for your specific device.
Patch Test: Before using the device on a larger area, perform a patch test on a small, inconspicuous area of your skin
1. Shave Before Use: Shave the treatment area before using the device. The laser/IPL energy should target the hair inside the follicle, not the surface hair. 2.
Eye Protection: Wear protective goggles, if provided with the device, to shield your eyes from the intense light.
Avoid Sun Exposure: Avoid sun exposure before and after treatments, as tanned skin can absorb more light energy and increase the risk of side effects.
Consistency: Be consistent with your treatment schedule to target hair in the anagen phase effectively.
