Everything You Need to Know About Laser Hair Removal at Home Everything You Need to Know About Laser Hair Removal at Home

Anyone who has ever had to contend with unwanted hair just about anywhere on their body is not going to be a stranger to some of these common methods for hair removal. As you will soon be able to see, many of these methods, while they are practical, come with their own sets of drawbacks.

We will take a look at each of them, consider how they work as well as their long term effects, before taking a deeper dive into something which may be a much more practical and effective alternative to each of them: laser hair removal at home - or more precisely, IPL (intense pulsed light) hair removal at home.

Without getting too far into it preliminarily, we’ll say that IPL hair removal can be an effective, if not more effective, long term solution than most of these, and for many good reasons that we are going to uncover.


Shaving is arguably the most basic form of hair removal at home, and probably one of the oldest and most widespread as well. Shaving is certainly effective at removing hair at home, and you can see the results as you work. We aren’t going to launch into an explanation of how shaving works - you probably understand that all too well already.

Unfortunately, because of the method of operation, shaving can be a painful, grueling experience, especially for those with sensitive skin. Razor burn is an all too common occurrence for ladies who have to shave every few days in order to keep unwanted hair at bay. On top of that, you can have nicks and cuts to contend with. Plus, shaving is time-consuming and generally unpleasant for most people. If that weren’t enough, it can be tough to shave hard to reach, smaller areas with some razors.

Worse is the fact that razors are expensive over time. These cartridges need to be replaced from time to time, which means that with frequent shaving the costs really add up. It’s effective for short term hair removal, but you need to practice it frequently to maintain the results, and depending on who you ask, shaving might even make hair come back thicker over time.


Waxing is a whole other animal to tackle. While you can perform your own waxing at home, plenty of people prefer to have a professional waxer remove their unwanted hair in a salon.

Waxing certainly is effective at removing a lot of unwanted hair from hard to reach places, and at the same time, since the wax is a liquid it can be pretty adaptable to the shape of your body. That is one benefit it has over shaving, and it also leaves your skin feeling very smooth.

All of that being said, hot waxing is a trip. We’re not even going to say that it can be painful; it is painful. There’s no way around that. Waxing is painful on two ends - if the wax is too hot, it can burn you, and when it comes time to perform the actual act, no description is needed. It’s uncomfortable and as effective as it is, it can still leave behind hairs that break off at the root and it can leave you at risk of irritation or infection.

Then there is the fact that it is not a long term solution for hair removal. While it doesn’t encourage growth, it has to be performed as hair grows back in, and just like shaving, the costs can rack up over time.

Plucking and Threading

Plucking, like waxing, removes hairs on a smaller scale by pulling them out. Also like waxing, it is very painful, perhaps even on a larger scale because you can’t remove many hairs at once. The one benefit of plucking or tweezing here is that it is not expensive if you perform it yourself, but that is about as far as it gets. Though it may discourage hair regrowth, it is immensely time consuming and just as immensely unpleasant. It’s also completely impractical for removing hair from larger areas of your face and body because it can leave you at a higher risk of ingrown hairs and can even scar you or cause infection. That crosses it off the list of practical solutions for hair removal except on the smallest of scales.

Threading, as its name implies, utilizes a small, thin thread to pull hairs out at the root, which can be performed by someone with a skilled hand very quickly. It is said to result in finer growth over time, and many report that it is less painful than plucking. That being said, it is still reported to be less than pleasant.

There is also the fact that, though threading can be performed relatively quickly by an experienced practitioner, it is still not a viable option for the wholesale removal of hair from larger areas of the body. In addition, because it is generally performed by practitioners with experience, it is not a cost-effective solution.


There are plenty of creams on the market that consumers can use to remove hair. Also widely known as depilatory creams, many of these work by chemically dissolving the hair. That does remove the hair and can have a long term effect than some of these other options. It can also be performed at home and depending on the cream can even be relatively cost-effective.

However, it is not without a caveat. Many creams have harsh chemicals that can burn your skin if you leave them on longer than directed, and some can be irritating even with minimal exposure. Plus, in the long term, it may not be a viable solution, especially if you have to reapply them frequently. Overall, if you’re not looking to mess around with chemicals in hopes that they will give you smooth, hair-free skin, but are looking for a better option than we have some good news for you.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) and Laser Hair Removal

Then you may have heard of IPL hair removal or even laser hair removal, both of which are sometimes administered by specialists in spas. The good news is that you can practice some of them at home, so if you were looking for a cost-friendly and effective solution for laser hair removal at home, our IPL handset might be just the ticket for you.

IPL and laser hair removal are not exactly the same, although they work by the same principles. In laser hair removal devices, the power of the beam of a laser is harnessed to heat up a hair follicle until it is sufficiently damaged and no longer viable. At that point, the hair falls out and growth is discouraged. Over time, the use of laser hair technology can result in diminished, slower, or finer hair growth that is less noticeable.

As mentioned, IPL is similar but not exactly the same. As opposed to using the focused beam of a laser, IPL uses intense pulses of light, typically on the visible spectrum. With IPL therapy, the light that is emitted is controlled to remove shorter wavelengths and so to specifically target different structures. In the case of IPL, the light targets the melanin in the hair, which absorbs the energy and heats up, just as it would with laser therapy. That makes IPL technology a suitable alternative to laser therapy, and with our IPL device, you can practice an alternative to laser hair removal at home that offers all of the benefits combined with all the alternatives above, with absolutely none of the drawbacks.

RoseSkinCotm IPL Laser Hair Removal Handset

Our proprietary IPL handset is uniquely designed to offer you all of the benefits that you could come to expect from any of the above processes and more, without any of the negative drawbacks. Here’s a rundown of what you can expect from our RoseSkinCotm IPL Laser Hair Removal Handset.

Efficiency and Long Term (Even Permanent) Hair Removal

One of the best things - perhaps the best thing - about our IPL Laser Hair Removal Handset is the fact that it really works. You can use it on any part of the body, including sensitive areas like your face and bikini line. It is effective at removing facial hair and body hair - which is much more than some of the other options we explored can say. In fact, some creams can be unsafe to use on part of the body for which they are not intended.

There are no hidden costs and our IPL handset will never need a refill. It just requires to be plugged in and it's good to go. It’s effective on almost all skin types - even on darker skin tones - and you can expect to see lasting results in as few as three weeks. Most importantly, over time, you can expect to see less and less hair, even the eventual permanent removal of hair from unwanted areas. Any hair that does come back will be finer and less visible, so with repeated treatments, you can get rid of it for good.

It’s Completely Pain-Free and Gentle

Unlike so many of the other methods we explored above, IPL hair removal is completely pain-free and gentle, which makes it suitable for all skin types and any part of the body. Even people with the most sensitive skin will never notice the least discomfort from our IPL handset.

As opposed to waxing and shaving that can leave you burning and feeling stung, our IPL therapy can be described as a “warm sensation on the skin,” which some might even say is pleasant. It doesn’t dry out your skin and doesn’t leave you at risk of infection or at higher risk of ingrown hairs.

It’s even certified safe to use, which means you can get the same kind of treatment you might get at a spa right from the comfort and convenience of your own home. There have been numerous studies conducted not only on the efficacy of IPL treatment but on its safety. Therefore, it has been certified safe to use which only adds to its efficacy. You can complete a full body treatment in as little as 30 minutes, and with treatments done only once per week, you will see results in as few as three weeks, with full results within 12 weeks.
