Laser hair removal has been a hugely popular beauty treatment for years, but for those who don’t want to venture to a salon to get laser hair removal, fear not, as there are plenty of at-home laser hair removal kits you can buy online. 

With the cost of living crisis a huge talking point, you might also want to cut costs on your beauty treatments during the winter, so you can ditch the fuzz in the comfort of your own home, and at any time you wish.

Some of the most popular designs include Philips, Lux, SmoothSkin and many more, and some of those are available to shop on popular online retailers, such as Boots, John Lewis, Lookfantastic and CurrentBody.

What we love about laser hair removal is it forces you to take a little time out for self-care, but also it can see long-lasting results, meaning you can avoid shaving rash, or those lumps and bumps after shaving. 

Plus, laser hair removal is a fraction of the pain in comparison to waxing and threading, so it’s well worth investing in. 

Whether you are looking for a laser hair removal machine to work on all areas, such as your legs, underarms and bikini line, or small and compact designs for more delicate areas, there is something for everyone.

What is the difference between laser hair removal and IPL? 

Some may opt for laser hair removal, while IPL kits are also a huge hit with shoppers.  

While they both work to remove hair, by targeting the hair follicle, IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a "broadband pulsed light source", while laser is a "monochromatic coherent light source", as explained on Braun’s website.

But what does that mean? A monochromatic light source penetrates deeper into the hair follicle, and is a more concentrated target, which is ideal for specific areas, whereas IPL has a larger spectrum and can target larger areas.

Looking for a cordless hair removal device, Sensica has you covered. 

This hair removal device uses RPL technology, which is reactive IPL, to prevent hair growth in unwanted areas. 

It is a cordless design, which is ideal for those on the go, and also features skin sensors for a comfortable experience.  Plus, it has an energy recommendation setting, so users can personalise their tool.
