So you’ve decided to pursue the route of home hair removal devices. Great choice, but with so many devices on the market, it’s often overwhelming to know which to purchase. Here you’ll find 5 easy steps and tips to help you narrow down your search and to find the device that best suits your needs.

1. Which Areas Do You Intend to Treat?

First of all you need to know which areas of your body you wish to treat with a device. Do you want to remove hair from your entire body or just sensitive areas such as your bikini line, underarms or facial hair? Not every device is suitable for these areas and if used inappropriately, can cause pain and result in a rash. Make sure you read the small print before purchasing a device that doesn’t cover the treatment areas you’re hoping to target.


2.  How Dedicated Are You?

Do you have the time and energy for home-use hair removal devices as they require repeated use just as clinical solutions require several visits to a clinic? The benefit of course is that every treatment is done from the comfort of your own home and at a time that best suits you. Nevertheless, you still need to follow instructions and be dedicated to the process of doing it yourself. It is true that some devices are more effective, show results faster and therefore require fewer treatments. It is also true that other devices can cause ingrown hairs and do not have permanent or professional results. Choosing the best device will give the results you seek and save you from razor cuts of shaving, the pain and redness of waxing, and detriments of other treatments.


3. The Benefits of RPL Technology

Do the research before buying any device as those that use laser technology are more painful than others. Sensica’s sensiLight mini range of professional-grade, non-invasive devices, for example, are based on the company’s advanced, clinically tested and FDA-approved Reactive Pulsed Light (RPL) technology, which is based on the well-known IPL technology. RPL technology is not laser technology and is pain-free. It also produces permanent, professional results.

4. Technical Considerations

Another consideration when choosing a hair-remover is the size of the device head. Devices with a too small head are known to make the process painful, less effective, and it takes longer to see results. sensiLight has a larger head making the treatment painless and enabling the user to cover wider treatment areas faster, especially compared with devices that use a single-beam laser, which takes longer to cover the required areas of the body for hair removal. Also an important consideration is the safety of a device. Each SensiLight devices features a double safety mechanism comprising skin tone sensors and skin contact sensors that react to the skin’s condition at every single flash, making it the safest on the market.


5. Check the Refill Requirements

Because each Sensilight Mini device produces thousands of flashes of light plus heat that disables hair re-growth at the root, the technology has been proven to cause a remarkable reduction in hair growth. It also saves one the time and money of constantly having to buy expensive refills or replacing cartridges. Moreover, at 1-flash />1sec, the Sensilight range is the fastest pulsed-light hair remover device available to-date. Other devices require users to constantly purchase refills and cartridges, which can make them as expensive as visits to clinics in the long run.


6. Anywhere, Anytime

The aim of purchasing a home-use hair removal devices is the benefit of using it wherever and whenever you want. Of all the devices reviewed, SensiLight has been most successful in transforming the complex and powerful permanent hair removal technologies used in medical spas and clinics into an ergonomically designed, easy-to-use, hand-held device that can be used in the privacy and comfort of one’s own home. No more appointment making, fighting traffic, and spending one’s precious time on costly visits to spas or clinics. SensiLight fulfills all criteria listed above and can be used anywhere, anytime!
