In a world where smooth skin has become a beauty ideal, it's no surprise that many people are looking for effective methods to remove unwanted hair. One of the most popular methods is IPL hair removal. But what exactly is it and how does it work? In this guide, we'll dive deeper into the topic and share some of the experiences our users have had with this method.


Permanent hair removal with IPL is a method that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to remove unwanted hair. IPL technology is designed to target and destroy the hair follicles, reducing hair growth over time. It is a non-invasive method that can be used on various parts of the body, including the face, legs, arms and bikini line. IPL hair removal has become a popular solution for those who want to achieve smooth skin without having to resort to painful waxing treatments or time-consuming shaving.

Laser hair removal works by killing hair follicles. The laser only damages hair follicles during an active hair growth cycle. For this reason, it takes several treatments (usually a minimum of 5-7) at one-week intervals to stop hair growth completely.

For some people, laser hair removal is not completely permanent. You may need a maintenance treatment every few months to prevent individual hairs from growing back.

Often the treatment is not cheap. Professional laser hair removal can cost over €100 per treatment, and it can take several sessions (or more) to achieve the desired results. So smooth legs can easily cost thousands of euros.

Meanwhile, you can order an IPL hair removal laser at home for under €100. For many, this is a worthwhile investment. However, you need to be aware of the advantages and disadvantages.


There are two types of at-home permanent hair removal devices. One is a real laser and the other uses intense pulsed light (IPL). Both types remove hair, and both are less powerful than the machine you'll experience in a clinic.

IPL for home use is safe for amateurs to use, so you don't have to worry about hurting yourself or over-treating yourself to get smooth skin (always make sure you follow the instructions precisely, though).

The disadvantages of IPL in your own home are that it can take a few more treatments to become completely hair-free than treatment in a clinic, as the machine is less powerful. However, this is offset by the fact that you only pay for the machine and not for the treatments. In addition, clinic machines are often larger, so a full-body treatment at home may take a little longer than in a clinic.

Comforth IPL can be set to "auto mode". Here the machine automatically flashes as the machine moves along the skin, providing a quicker and easier treatment.

How does IPL hair removal at home work?

IPL hair removal at home works by emitting short, intense pulses of light that are absorbed by the melanin (color) in the hair. When the light is absorbed, it is converted into heat that destroys the hair follicle, preventing future hair growth. It is a relatively painless process, although some people may experience a slight tingling sensation during the treatment.

Experiences with IPL hair removal at home

Many of our customers have had positive experiences with IPL hair removal at home. They report that the treatment is effective in reducing hair growth and that they have seen significant results after several treatments. Several of our customers have noticed a reduction in hair growth of up to 90% after 6-12 treatments. However, it's important to note that results can vary from person to person and it may take longer for some people to see results.


One of the main disadvantages of at-home laser hair removal is that IPL does not work on all hair and skin colors. IPL affects the pigment in the hair follicle and is only effective when there is sufficient melanin in the follicles and sufficient contrast between skin and hair.

IPL is therefore most effective for people with fair skin and dark hair; people with darker skin are at risk of burns. IPL does not work on very light hair as the melanin level is not high enough. Also, red hair has a type of melanin called pheomelanin that does not absorb the energy from IPL, which is why the treatment does not work on red hair.

IPL hair removal at home is an effective method of reducing unwanted hair growth. While it requires several treatments to see significant results, many of our customers have had positive experiences.



How many IPL treatments are needed?

The number of IPL treatments needed can vary depending on several factors, including the color and thickness of the hair and the area being treated.

In general, most people require between 6 and 12 treatments to see significant results. It's important to follow the product recommendations for using your IPL device to ensure you get the best results.

Can you remove hair permanently at home?

Yes, it is possible to permanently remove hair at home. IPL and laser hair removal are both methods that can provide long-lasting results.

However, it's important to note that "permanent" in this case means a significant reduction in hair growth rather than a complete removal of all hair. For most people, this means that they will see a significant reduction in hair growth, but they may still need occasional maintenance treatments to keep their skin smooth.



In a world where smooth and hair-free skin is a beauty ideal, IPL hair removal has become a popular method to achieve this. But is it safe? We will now dive into the topic and give you an in-depth understanding of IPL hair removal, its safety and what you need to be aware of.

Safety aspects of IPL hair removal

As a starting point, permanent hair removal is generally not harmful. As with all cosmetic treatments, there are some safety aspects to be aware of when it comes to IPL hair removal. It's important to understand these before you decide to go ahead with the treatment. In general, IPL treatment is considered safe. However, as with all treatments, there is a risk of side effects. However, these are typically mild and temporary.

Risks and side effects of IPL hair removal

The most common side effects of IPL hair removal are temporary and can include redness, swelling and irritation in the treated area. These side effects typically disappear within a few hours to days after treatment. In rare cases, more serious side effects such as burns can occur, but this is very rare and typically only happens if the treatment is not performed correctly.

How can I ensure that my IPL treatment does not cause any damage?

To ensure that your IPL treatment is safe, it's important to follow all the instructions in the user manual. It's also important to do a test on a small area of skin before the full treatment to see how your skin reacts to the treatment. If you experience any discomfort or severe redness, you should stop the treatment.


Sensitive skin - There are no complications with sensitive, dry or oily skin. If your skin is very sensitive, you may need to use a lower strength level than recommended. It will take a little longer to see results, but other than that, there should be no issues.

Sunburn - Do NOT use IPL if your skin is sunburned. Wait 48 hours after the sunburn has disappeared before using IPL again.

Rosacea - IPL is actually used to treat rosacea. However, the type of IPL you use for hair removal is not exactly the same, so you cannot use Comforth IPL to treat rosacea.

However, IPL hair removal will not aggravate rosacea and you can use the machine if you have rosacea.

Do NOT use IPL if you have any of the following skin conditions:
- Hypoesthesia
- Contact dermatitis
- Photosensitive skin

If you do not have any of the above skin conditions, it is 100% safe to use IPL. Comforth IPL is FDA, CE, ROHS and FCC certified, so you can be confident in your treatments.

NOTE: We recommend that you always do a spot test before treatment to check how your skin reacts. We do NOT recommend using IPL if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.


The permanent hair remover from Comforth Scandinavia can be used by anyone whose skin and hair color falls under "suitable" in the table above. We recommend treatment once or twice a week for 5-12 weeks, after which you can reduce the frequency to once every two weeks to once a month.
