An IPL machine is pretty close to a laser device, but there are plenty of brands suitable for use at home by novices.
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, which uses different wavelengths to a laser and can be used to treat unwanted hair, sun damage and more.
Here's everything you need to know before buying your own.

With this in mind, we'd recommend visiting a qualified specialist in a treatment centre with the right machines to cater for your skin.
IPL is safe for using on the bikini area, however due to skin and hair being darker on the genital area, it isn't recommended in that area.
