Let us begin by stating that most companies caution against sharing a laser hair removal machine with other people – possibly just because this hurts their sales.
Even though you aren’t actually scraping a blade against skin, IPL can still release biological elements into the air which get onto the optical head. Not to mention that it’s unlikely that you won’t touch the flashing area by “accident”.
That being said, we know that many women will want to share their device with someone else. If so, it’s not a bad idea to clean it first.
Despite already being capable of emitting 350,000 flashes, this IPL device has a lamp unit you can replace. These are available in 2-square centimeter or 4.5-square centimeter, each with a lifespan of 350,000 flashes.
For Use At Home, Not In Spas
Unfortunately, it takes 6 to 10 treatments to fully remove hair from an area, so you won’t find this in professional spas. Clients would be unwilling to take time out for so many appointments, while the time and effort involved would also make it quite uneconomical.
As an at-home option for laser hair removal, however, it is great for sharing with family and friends.
The basic unit is very affordable, and the low price of its cartridges means that you and a group of your pals can go hair-free together without having to purchase multiple devices. Not only is that a lot easier on the wallet, it’s much better for the environment since fewer machines end up going to landfill.
For Several Skin Conditions
Do you, or perhaps one of your hair-loss buddies, have special dermatological needs that most cheaper IPL devices aren’t designed to cope with?
Do you have aging or dry skin, or perhaps acne?
If so, the DEESS iLight system has you covered.
Special lamps are available specifically to deal with these and other issues. The special SR lamp is designed to improve elasticity and increase moisture production for a silky smooth skin. The AC lamp, on the other hand, reduces acne, inflammation, and excessive oiliness.
Upgrade and Take Your Skin Care a Step Further
We’ve focused on the DEESS iLight 3 here, which is one of our top recommendations for permanent hair removal at home. We wanted to show you at least one economical option suitable for sharing with others.
If you want something capable of more than just hair removal, though, you may want to take a look at the very similar DEESS iLight 3-in-1, which is designed to remove hair as well as reduce acne outbreaks and associated blemishes, while also rejuvenating skin that has lost its natural elasticity.
