Last updated: 20 March 2017

Intense Pulsed light (IPL) devices are powered by flash-lamps. The pulsed light technology works by sending a beam of light to an area on the skin with enough power to disable or destroy the root, but not enough power to harm the surrounding skin. We've tested and reviewed IPL models from Beurer, Remington, Philips and more.

Our buying guide will tell you what features to look out for and how we test explains our testing rigour.
