I can still remember the first couple of months I spent hours each night after work searching for a safe hair removal machine that I could use in my own home. It took me so long because I knew I had to get it right, I needed a hair removal machine that was safe for me. Not only safe but it needed to work in getting rid of my
Italian genetics hairs! I was eager to spend a couple of hundred dollars (really I was) but I was more eager to see some results. I remember digging through the internet and also looking at home department stores and their catalogs for the latest home use IPL and Laser hair removal products, then going on the internet to check out what other people thought of them, like reading other peoples reviews of different products to get a feel how they really were. I ended up reading so many reviews for IPL and Laser hair removal to use at home that I was going around in circles, not to mention all the scientific jargon such as monochromatic light etc that was making me baffled. It took me about three and a half months to finally select the best home permanent hair removal machine that I thought was safe to use for my skin color and hair color. (And when you think about it, 3 months is a long time to wait when spring and summer are creeping around the corner).
Due to what happened to me, which you can read in ‘My Story‘, since then, I have purchased a fair few home hair removal machines (which I still have every single one because I use them for different areas of my body depending on the surface area of the machine head). I have put together a list of the machines that I believe to be the safe Laser and IPL hair removal machines but also the best and most effective that your money can buy for hair removal at home. These are my favorites which top the list for recommended permanent hair removal machines.
(I am interested to hear your feedback on any of these so please leave a comment or contact me if you have any questions or concerns on whether any machine is suitable for you).

What Is IPL and Laser Hair Removal?
Laser or IPL permanent hair reduction is a non-invasive and non-surgical technique which uses a machine, either a Laser machine or IPL machine to remove unwanted hair from any body parts.
Laser and IPL hair removal machines work by emitting light energy which targets the hair follicle and damages the hair using heat that through this penetration the follicle no longer grows. With numerous repetitive treatments, all hair follicles eventually get damaged which leads to permanent hair reduction.
