Hair removal

IPL

Yes. In clinical tests performed by doctors, it was proven that the technology in beurer IPL devices can be used to safely achieve lasting hair removal results.

Beurer IPL devices were designed for hair removal all over the body. The most common areas that are treated are the legs, armpits, arms, bikini zone and the face below the cheekbones.

Our products are developed with a strong focus on your safety and employ clinically tested technology. However, this device – like any other product or electronic device intended for application on the skin – must be used in accordance with the instructions for use and the safety notes for users.

When used correctly, most users report a slight warm feeling when the light pulse is issued. beurer IPL devices have individually adjustable energy levels, which you can select depending on the sensitivity of your skin.

Body treatment:

Just 3-4 treatments can achieve a hair reduction of up to 50 %. For body treatments, you can achieve the best results with 4 treatments carried out every 2 weeks, followed by 3 treatments carried out every 4 weeks. The treatment can then be repeated as required.

Facial treatment:

For facial treatments, you can achieve the best results with 6 treatments carried out every 2 weeks, followed by further treatments every 4 weeks. The treatment can then be repeated as required.

Gesichtsbehandlung - Timing IPL

Beurer IPL devices are most effective on dark hair types or on hair with a high melanin content. Melanin is the pigment that gives hair and skin its colour and absorbs light energy. Black and dark brown hair shows the best response. Brown and light brown hair also responds to treatment, but it usually requires more hair removal sessions. A limited effect can be seen on red hair.

White, grey or blond hair does not usually respond to a light-based hair removal method, although several users have noticed results after multiple hair removal sessions.

Do not use beurer IPL devices on naturally dark skin!

Treating dark skin with a light-based hair removal procedure can have adverse consequences, such as burns, blisters or discolouration of the skin (hyper- or hypopigmentation). beurer IPL devices feature an integrated skin colour sensor, which measures the colour of the treated skin at the beginning of every treatment session and occasionally during the session itself. The skin colour sensor prevents the device from issuing further pulses if it detects that the device is being used on skin that is too dark.

The results of light-based hair removal are not immediately visible. Hair grows in three different stages and IPL devices only have an effect on the hairs in the active growth phase. Therefore, several sessions are required to achieve the desired result.

Yes, the device can be used by men as well as women. However, men's hair – typically on the chest – will require more hair removal sessions than women do to achieve the desired results. The device cannot be used on men's faces.

There is currently no known damage caused to skin due to long-term usage of light-based hair removal devices.

Yes, women can use beurer IPL devices to treat hair on the face below the cheekbones. When using on the face, it is important to avoid the area around the eyes. IPL devices must not be used around or on the eyes under any circumstances.

You should wait at least 48 hours after sunbathing before using your beurer IPL device. Ideally, protect your skin using sun cream with SPF 30+ two weeks before treatment.

After treatment, you should wait at least 48 hours before sunbathing. For the first two weeks after treatment, you should cover the treated skin with clothing or sun cream (at least SPF 30) when you are out in the sun.

The treated area of skin can be cleaned and cared for using commercially available skin care products.

Your skin should be clean, dry and shaved. Do not put any creams, deodorants or other cosmetic products on the skin before use. You should also protect the areas of skin that are to be treated from sunlight for at least 48 hours before use.

No, the device cannot be used above the cheekbones to prevent risk of eye damage.

IPL devices are not suitable for diabetics because they may have a reduced sensitivity to pain and would therefore not notice if there was excessive strain on the skin.

The device can be used by men to remove undesired hair, but not on the genitals directly (testicles, penis) or on the anus. Due to the sensitivity of the pubic area, a lower energy level is recommended.

Yes, but due to the sensitivity of the pubic area, a lower energy level is recommended. The device cannot be used on genitals and mucous membranes (vagina, inner labia, back passage).

The IPL device must not be used on tattooed areas of the skin.

No, the IPL device must not be used on freckles, moles and birthmarks.

Yes, but not on nipples or areolae.

No, you do not need to use contact gel. The IPL device was designed such that it can be used on clean and dry skin without any additional products. Additionally, the contact gel would damage the device.

Laser

Yes. The effectiveness of the devices is clinically tested. Thousands of cosmetics studios and dermatologists use the scientifically-proven method of long-lasting hair removal through professional laser technology. With the Tria by beurer hair removal lasers, you can use them in familiar surroundings at home.

The LAS 100 Tria by Beurer hair removal laser is suitable for use on legs, arms, the bikini line, armpits, feet, hands, chest, back, stomach and for women on their faces below the cheek line.
Due to its compact and ergonomic shape, the LAS 50 Precision is especially suited for precise hair removal on areas of the body that are small or hard to reach, such as the face, bikini line or armpits.
Both hair removal lasers must NOT be used to treat the face, chin or neck for men as the hair grows more densely and is thicker in these areas and it may cause injuries.

Do not use the Tria by Beurer hair removal laser on the ears, nipples, genitals or around the anus. The skin in these areas may be more sensitive, be of a darker skin tone and/or have denser hair. Using the laser can cause serious skin injuries in these areas.
Both hair removal lasers must NOT be used to treat the face, chin or neck for men as the hair grows more densely and is thicker in these areas and it may cause injuries.

Our products are developed with a strong focus on your safety and employ clinically tested technology. However, this device – like any other product or electronic device intended for application on the skin – must be used in accordance with the instructions for use and the safety notes for users.
The integrated intelligent skin sensor ensures additional safety by only activating treatment for suitable skin colours. When checking the skin tone, please note that the darkness of the skin varies depending on the application area. For example, your arms may be more tanned than the bikini line in the summer time.
Never activate the device in a different area to the treatment location. If you are unsure whether your skin is suitable for the treatment, please consult your doctor.

The treatment may be a somewhat unpleasant experience depending on the intensity level. Some users have described the feeling as being like snapping an elastic band against the skin. Others feel a warm, tingling sensation. Each user should decide for themselves what the highest tolerable level is for them.
As the amount of hair in the treated area decreases, the feeling of pain also reduces.

For long-lasting results, the treatment should be repeated every 2 weeks for 3 months until the desired results have been achieved.

The hair removal lasers are only designed for use on light to light brown skin tones and light brown to black body hair. The best results can be attained with very dark hair and light skin.

No. Hair that is too light does not absorb the laser energy sufficiently enough to deactivate the hair follicles.

No, the Tria by Beurer hair removal laser must not be used on brown or black skin. The skin could absorb too much laser light and be damaged by it (burns, discolouration or scarring).

Visibly less hair grows back after just the first treatment. After three months, the applicable parts of your body are hair-free, safely and permanently.

Men can use the devices below the shoulders. However, men must not use them on the face, chin or neck as the hair grows more densely and is thicker in these areas and it may cause injuries.

No. The hair removal lasers are clinically tested. You can determine whether your skin tone is suitable for the device by using the installed skin sensor on the relevant area of skin before the treatment.

Women can only use the laser below the cheekbones. The LAS 50 Precision hair removal laser is particularly suited for this purpose. The hair on areas around the eyes must not be removed.

The device should not be used when you have sunburn or a strong sun tan as the contrast between the hair and skin is reduced and the laser is therefore not as effective as usual. There is also the risk of skin damage if the skin in the treatment area is too dark.

After-treatment is generally not required after use. If slight skin redness occurs afterwards, cream can be applied to the surface.

Do not wax, pluck or have a peeling treatment on the skin for 6 weeks before treatment. Clean, shave and dry your skin before each treatment.
In order to best care for your skin and to make the treatment more pleasant, you can also apply the Smoothstart Calming Gel onto shaved skin before the treatment. It has an anti-inflammatory effect, moisturises, cools and soothes the skin. Sensitivity to pain during treatment at higher energy levels is thus reduced.

No. The device cannot be used in the eye area.

No. The device must not be used on the genitals or around the anus.

No. Avoid the area with the tattoo during treatment as the skin may be damaged. The treatment can be carried out as usual on areas of the skin that are not tattooed.

No. The Tria by Beurer device must not be used on freckles, moles and birthmarks. Avoid these areas during use.

The laser must not be used to remove hair from the nipples.

After the treatment is completed, no more hair grows from the hair follicles which have been deactivated by the Tria hair removal lasers. However, the body (e.g. due to hormone variations) may also form new hair roots in other areas, meaning that a follow-up treatment may be necessary.

The LAS 100 can be used for approx. 600 pulses (approx. 30 minutes). The LAS 50 for approx. 250 (15 minutes).

The battery of the hair removal laser takes approx. 2 hours to be fully charged.

No, the laser only works if it is not connected to the power.

The Tria by Beurer hair removal laser destroys unwanted hair growth by using emitted laser light impulses which heat up the dark pigments within the hair follicle and deactivate the hair follicle without damaging the skin.

Please check the following things:

  • Have you plugged the hair removal laser into the charger? Pull the plug out of the device.
  • Check whether the laser is locked due to disuse. Unlock the Tria laser with the skin sensor. If it does not work, the treatment may not be safe for you.
  • Make sure that the treatment slit lies completely flat on the skin.
  • The area that is to be treated may be too small, curved or bony. Try to pull the skin flat. If it is not possible for the whole treatment slit to touch the skin, the laser does not work in this area.
