Short answer: yes, they do work! In this post, I will share with you my experience with the SmoothSkin Pure Fit IPL Hair Removal Device. I’ve always wanted to try these at-home hair removal devices – mostly because I didn’t feel like paying four digits for a treatment at a clinic and because I’m obsessed with beauty gadgets.
To be completely honest, I as a little skeptical at first – but after using it for more than 3 months I feel confident to share my thoughts with you!
What is IPL?
IPL stands for “Intense Pulsed Light.” It is a non-invasive technology used in most at-home devices for hair removal. IPL devices emit broad-spectrum light bursts that target hair follicles’ pigment. This light energy becomes heat and damages the follicles, preventing hair growth. Over the following days or weeks, the treated hairs will gradually fall out.
You should know that IPL typically requires multiple sessions spaced apart because hair grows in different stages, and multiple treatments ensure that hair in all growth phases is targeted. Also, IPL doesn’t guarantee permanent hair removal, but it can provide long-term reduction in hair growth. You may need occasional maintenance sessions to keep the results.
The SmoothSkin Pure Fit IPL Hair Removal Device
I have to be honest: at first, I was afraid to use the device – and I may have procrastinated until I finally decided to start a treatment. I watched some videos on Youtube, I read the instructions carefully and I also watched the video from the brand.
I decided to start by treating my legs. First, you need to shave the treatment area and dry it. Then, after plugging the device, you choose the mode, head, and intensity. I used the regular head and decided to start with the gentle mode – mostly because, as I said, I was insecure about it, and I didn’t know what I would feel. Then you start the treatment by placing the SmoothSkin Pure Fit flat against the area and press the button, moving after each flash. It is important to notice that the device doesn’t release the flash if the head is not perfectly in contact with the skin.
After some weeks, I was more confident, and I decided to increase the intensity. Honestly, I have no complaints! You barely feel a warm touch on your skin – and the light is probably faster than a second. So, I can confidently say that it’s painless!
