When it comes to removing your facial and leg hair, traditional methods like using sharp razor blades can be extremely dangerous and could lead to cuts, bleeds and infections. Moreover, going to a laser treatment specialist could cost you an upwards of hundredths, if not, thousands of dollars per visit.

This explains why in recent years many have gone to do-it-yourself at-home Intense Pulsed Light Devices (IPL). This kind of technology uses high-frequency light beams to remove your hair and is an inexpensive alternative for those wanting to remove their hair without breaking the bank.

An average IPL device costs between around $100 and each treatment can be performed at the luxury of your own home. They are extremely easy to use and are far less harmful than laser because of the light spectrum that they use to kill off the hair roots.
