What Are the Benefits of IPL?

Removing unwanted hair can be the bane of your existence. The constant maintenance of waxing, shaving and plucking can be tedious as best, and expensive and painful at worst.

Thankfully, there are other methods of hair removal which are less painful and also more affordable. The best news is, there are even devices you can use in the comfort of your own home, are painless, and also highly affordable. If you have a busy lifestyle, you will appreciate the flexibility doing your own IPL treatments can afford. 

We are excited to launch our new FEMVY at home IPL hair removal devices in our online store. Get yours here! 

Home IPL treatments use IPL technology to remove unwanted hair from the face and body. IPL stands for “Intense Pulsed Light,” which removes hair permanently by sending multiple wavelengths of light therapy to target the pigment within your hair follicles. As a result, IPL dramatically slows down hair regrowth.

The ability to remove unwanted hair from your body from within the comfort of your own home is a huge motivator for busy people. Another bonus is you no longer need to squeeze in an appointment time at a salon. The IPL devices are small and easy to travel with, which means you can even keep up with your hair removal treatments even when you’re on holiday.


If you’re a little shy about your body, you can perform your own treatments at home by yourself. Even if you aren’t shy, it’s still nice to be able to do your own hair removal at home.

Ability to Focus on Specific Areas

You may only have a small area where you want to remove your body hair from, so the ability to do it yourself without paying for multiple appointments is decreased.  

Quick Treatments Compared to Laser Clinics

It’s nice to be able to quickly do your own IPL home treatment at home whenever you like (i.e after a shower before bed), as opposed to having to commit to a time during business hours when the salon is open.


IPL devices are far more cost-effective than a series of treatments performed at a clinic. For laser at clinics to be effective, you need to have around 8 to 10 treatments, plus the occasional treatment for maintenance (each one of these treatments can cost you anywhere between $50-$300+ depending on how many body areas you want to treat). If you get more than one area treated, for example, treating your underarms, legs and Brazilian, you can expect to pay around $30 for your underarms, $100 for your Brazilian, and $100 for your legs. After 10 visits you have already spent over $2300. When you consider this in contrast to the cost of just one Femvy IPL device which will last you many years, the price is incomparable.


The IPL devices are almost completely painless with just a warm sensation to be felt on the skin. However, pain tolerance will vary between individuals.

We will announce the launch of our new products very soon. In the meantime, if you enjoyed this blog, you might like to read some of our previous articles! Last week, we suggested a home DIY facial as a replacement for your beauty salon appointment. Click here to view our previous blog list.
