What Is Your Skill Level?
If you are new to photo
epilation it is advisable that
you consider the
IPL-450aDX machines first.
These systems are very easy to
operate and give excellent
results. The output
power is ideal for safe and
effective permanent hair
Speed of Treatment
You will want to go with a larger beam size combined with greater energy density (fluence) if you are working on large areas to increase efficiency. The
SDL80-DX systems are perfectly suited for rapid and efficient laser epilation and can clear a woman's legs or a man's back in just about 30 to 60 minutes.

How Much Power Do You Need?
The general rule is
54-120 total joules per cm2/second for a QCW
(quasi constant wave also
known as 'long pulsed') Diode Laser
or Intense Pulsed Light. Applying more than 180jcm2/second could burn your skin (while doing little additional damage to the follicles
How Fast Do These Systems Clear Large Areas?
For general comparison, we will look at a 120 square inch (moderately covered) treatment area. This is the equivalent of the average man's chest and abdomen, or woman's upper and lower legs.
120 minutes of treatment
30 minutes of treatment
15 minutes of treatment
IPL-650aDX: 12 minutes of treatment
IPL-850aDX: 7 minutes of treatment
Based upon these general characteristics it is our recommendation that the
DM-6050aDX be used for limited facial areas, underarms, bikini line etc.
The SDL-30aDX is best suited for larger (but also limited) areas.
The SDL-50aDX and IPL-450aDX are ideal for large (unlimited) areas such as chest, back, legs etc.
The SDL-80aDX and IPL-650aDX are
best for large areas.
IPL-850aDX and SDL-100aDX is
