Bareskin Laser Hair removal Laser hair removal is the process of removing body hair by exposing it to laser light pulses. The light pulses enter the skin and send the hair follicle a message to stop growing. Laser hair removal has been around for over the last 40 years but only became commercially available in the mid-90s. Laser hair removal is widely practiced by various skin and health clinics but has become really expensive. Bareskin IPL laser hair removal device was developed for this very reason. This device emits intense pulsed light (IPL) in 5 different settings - from a low setting to ultra-high. Settings on the IPL laser hair removal device is determined by the user's type of hair and skin type.
