Recently, there has been a strong movement to normalize body hair on women. We think a woman should always do whatever makes her most comfortable and happy. If that means letting your body hair grow, that’s great! It is natural and normal and it is nothing to be ashamed about. We need to stop placing pressure on women to conform to crazy beauty standards.
There are also many women who feel much more comfortable when they are hair-free. Having silky smooth skin gives them the confidence to conquer anything. When you are comfortable in your own skin, it will completely boost your self-esteem and make you feel so much better about yourself. Hair or no hair, you need to do what works best for you and makes you the happiest.
Some women have hormonal imbalances that cause them to grow more hair than normal. This can be detrimental to their confidence, with many feeling embarrassed to show their skin because of the amount of hair they have. Even if you don’t have a hormonal issue, sometimes genetics will play a role as well. Some ethnicities are more prone to extra body hair or thicker and darker hair as well.
If you are confident with having hair on your body, more power to you! If you are someone who struggles to wear bathing suits or skin-baring clothing because you feel embarrassed about your body hair, or even simply just do not like it, you are not alone.
Many women feel this way about body hair. If you feel this way, you are also probably frustrated by shaving, waxing, and other traditional methods of hair removal. If you are looking for a way to remove body hair and simultaneously boost your self-esteem, look no further: IPL is going to change your life!
What Is IPL?
IPL stands for intense pulsed light. It works similarly to lasers that are used for in-office treatments. Many people use IPL as a form of hair removal because it can be used on all parts of the body. While we will be specifically talking about its uses for hair removal in the rest of the article, there are a variety of other issues it helps to treat. These issues include:
- Age spots
- Broken blood vessels
- Sun damage
There is actually a difference between IPL and lasers when it comes to hair removal. They work differently because an IPL device uses multiple wavelengths of light energy, whereas a laser device uses a single wavelength of light energy. The multiple wavelengths result in a photo-like flash with each pulse of the IPL.
This is why, when you are in an office setting, you will see people wearing goggles to protect their eyes from the light flashes. However, at-home devices do not have light flashes that are too bright for the eyes to handle, so you do not need goggles.
This treatment is great for the rejuvenation of the skin. It works to help the skin renew its cells. It can even help with stimulating collagen production. When used for hair removal, it is the least painful and most effective option. Plus, you do not have to worry about any potential damage to the skin! There have been some cases where certain lasers may burn the skin if not used on the right setting.
Does IPL Actually Work?
Yes, IPL does actually work! In fact, it is the most effective way to get rid of unwanted hair. Not only does it help to remove body hair, but it also helps to prevent it from growing back. IPL’s light energy works to destroy the hair follicle. Another bonus of IPL is that the light flashes penetrate into the second layer of your skin, which is called the dermis. It does not harm the top layer, which is called the epidermis. This means there is overall less damage done to your skin.
This is actually one of the reasons why it is commonly used as a facial treatment. The skin is able to heal much more quickly because there is less damage. Typically, most people only experience redness for a couple of hours, if that.
It targets the pigment in the skin (typically red or brown) and heats up the skin. This results in the skin shedding these unwanted skin cells, and giving you clear and glowing skin. It is sometimes referred to as a photoaging facial or a photo facial.
Where Can You Get IPL?
You can get IPL as an in-office treatment at the dermatologist or spa. But here’s the good news: you can actually do IPL in the comfort of your own home. In fact, you never even have to leave your couch to do it. KENZZI makes the best at-home IPL device available on the market. Why waste all that time and money going back and forth to the dermatologist when you could do it yourself, relaxing at home?
Besides time, our at-home device will save you money, and lots of it. Buying KENZZI is a one-time cost, which can be compared to buying packages or multiple sessions of laser hair removal at the dermatologist. Did you know in-office treatments can cost you hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of dollars? Not to mention, you will have to go in a couple of times a year for a touchup session, which can range from $25 to $100.
When taken care of properly, our device can provide you with 10+ years of light flashes. That means hair-free skin for years to come! No appointments, no strangers zapping you with a laser device, and no absurd cost. Our IPL handset will give you the same results as an in-office treatment. You can use it on any part of your body, even the sensitive bikini and Brazilian areas.
Our device is not just for women. Men can use it too if they are trying to get rid of any body hair! It works the same way no matter your body type, gender, or the amount of hair you have. Some men get their backs or chests waxed, but we think IPL is a much better (and less painful!) option.
A great thing about KENZZI is that your hair removal experience will be pretty much entirely pain-free. Some people have more sensitive skin than others and may experience a slight snapping or stinging sensation, but it will only last for about a second. When you get an in-office treatment, the laser they use is much more painful and will probably feel a bit uncomfortable.
If body hair is leaving you feeling embarrassed or affecting your confidence, you do not need to worry. Forget about shaving, waxing, and hair removal creams. They are simply not effective and you have to do them over and over to get results (if you even get any). A much better solution is IPL hair removal. It is less painful and can cover a larger area of skin in a shorter period of time.
KENZZI takes the power of laser hair removal at the dermatologist and brings it to you at home with our handheld IPL device. You get the same results at a better price, and you can do it while relaxing and lounging at home. Using it weekly will help to significantly slow down the hair regrowth on your body, and the goal is to eventually have no hair regrowth at all.
It does not matter if your body is covered in hair, or if it is entirely hair-free. Whatever makes you feel strong and confident is what’s important. There are many women who prefer to have no body hair. Having a lot of hair might make them feel self-conscious and like they want to cover up their skin. Sometimes shaving and waxing can just make it worse! If you are looking to boost your self-esteem and feel comfortable in your own skin, IPL might be the solution you need.
