8 Tips for Safely and Effectively Using the Hair Removal at Home

If you are using a personal hair removal device at home but not achieving the desired results and are unsure why, let’s explore eight important tips with Crenot to use the hair removal device safely and effectively!

1. Shave the Hair Area Thoroughly

Before using the hair removal device, ensure that the hair area is thoroughly shaved. If not, long hairs can burn when exposed to light, but the follicles underneath won’t absorb enough energy, leading to reduced hair removal effectiveness. Long hairs cause light dispersion, decreasing absorption into the hair roots and wasting energy. Additionally, burning hair can cause burns, so shaving is a necessary step for optimal results.


2. Select the Correct Energy Level and Pulse Length

The effectiveness of hair removal depends on the energy level and pulse length. If the energy is not strong enough or the wavelength is not long enough, the hair follicles will not be completely destroyed. Each hair area on the body has different lengths, depths, and colors, so choose the appropriate energy level and pulse length for the best results.

3. Avoid Hair Removal on Sun-Exposed Skin

Skin exposed to sunlight is easily damaged, red, painful, and at risk of skin cancer. Do not remove hair from areas of skin that have been sun-exposed for long periods, as the light from the hair removal device can cause pain and damage to the skin.

4. Care for Different Skin Areas

  • Face: Facial skin is thinner and more sensitive than other skin areas, requiring a hair removal device with a specialized head. Each light exposure should be at least 5 seconds apart and not exceed 10 minutes.
  • Other Areas: Do not remove hair from tattooed areas, pimples, warts, moles, or freckles with hair growth. Avoid using the hair removal device on damaged skin, burns, open wounds, varicose veins, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis. Do not use the device when you are not well. The bikini area requires a specialized hair removal head and safe hair removal devices specifically for this area.


5. Use Sunscreen Before IPL Hair Removal

For effective hair removal, the skin needs fewer pigments and should use a high SPF sunscreen at least 2 weeks before hair removal. Avoid waxing or exfoliating during this period.

6. Care for the Skin After Hair Removal

After hair removal, avoid direct sun exposure, use high SPF sunscreen when going out. In the first 24 hours after hair removal, limit water exposure, do not take hot showers, steam baths, or go swimming. Avoid using cosmetics, makeup removers, perfumes, or creams with chemicals immediately after hair removal. Use mild gels and creams to soothe the skin and tighten pores. Between sessions, do not wax or pluck hairs to maintain the effectiveness of the light pulses.


7. People Who Should Not Use Hair Removal Devices

  • Pregnant or breastfeeding women.
  • People with a history of epilepsy or using stimulants.
  • People with diabetes, kidney, heart, or thyroid diseases.
  • People with skin cancer or a history of skin cancer.
