We've rounded up a list of the best IPL devices, and tell you everything you need to know about buying one.
So you may be wondering, what is IPL?
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a non-invasive technology used in hair removal devices. It works by sending a gentle heat below the skin’s surface through flashes of light energy. This energy disrupts the growth of each hair follicle, therefore stunting hair growth. It differs from laser hair removal as it uses a broader spectrum of wavelengths, covering a larger surface area and often resulting in quicker treatment times.
With the huge number of at-home IPL hair removal devices on the market, it can be overwhelming if you’re a first time user and you have no idea where to start. We’re here to give you a rundown of the best hair removal devices on the market.

E-One Clinic Permanent Hair Removal Device
IPL in fewer treatments
With most IPL devices, you need to use them every single week for 12 weeks to see results and then top up once a month ongoing. Not with the E-One. This device is faster. It uses IPPL (Rapid Intense Pulsed Light) technology for a clinical-grade treatment you only need to do once every 6-8 weeks.
This is the same level of results you’d see from a clinic or a salon and it even works on blonde hair and tanned skin. Most devices on this list don’t. Use it from tip to tail, including for bikini or face peach fuzz on men or women. Get baby-soft skin and less hair from the very first session with total results after 10-12 treatments.
