What to consider when choosing a home hair remover 

1.) Size of treatment area determines how long each application takes. For example, the Tria Laser has a treatment area of approximately 0.2 square inches while the Silk’n Flash & Go has a treatment area approximately 1.2 square inches. This means treatment times are greatly reduced with an IPL as you can cover large areas in less time. More applications may be required for an IPL unit depending on hair color and skin tone.
2.) Cost of a laser hair remover is higher than IPL units. Tria Laser costs around $425 while Silk’n Flash & Go costs less than $300
3.) Lifespan of the 2 styles can be difficult to compare. Lasers are more effective at removing hair but will have fewer light impulses available. IPL’s provide more light impulses but more applications may be required. Keep in mind that Lasers do not work as well as IPL on light (blonde, grey, white) or red hair.
4.) Corded or cordless is a user preference. If you plan on using your device on vacation or away from an outlet, a cordless unit will be a better choice.
5.) Number of applications required for permanent hair removal. As mentioned above, more treatments are required when using an IPL for permanent hair removal. This can be difficult to access as lasers work more efficiently on darker hair with lighter skin tones while IPL works on most hair colors and skin tones.
