This year, many of us have had to forgo our usual beauty appointments — we didn’t have access to hair, nail and other grooming services, and we had to find at-home solutions and alternatives. While treating ourselves to mani-pedis at home is a no-brainer, hair removal is a little more tricky. If you’re used to getting regular laser hair removal treatments, reverting to waxing or shaving isn’t the most ideal, especially for those with sensitive skin. It’s not like you could just rent a laser to use at home, right?
Datsumo Labo’s new Home Edition device is the answer to that problem. The Japanese hair removal salon is now 10 years old, and it has made a name for itself both internationally and on our shores. We’re no stranger to the brand, especially if you’ve seen their pink buses on the road. Known for their SHR (Super Hair Removal) technology, they’ve launched a portable hair removal device that can easily provide professional results from the comfort of your own home.
Weighing less than 300 grams, the device is easy to use, and can be operated on yourself by yourself, or by someone else. Packed with 300,000 IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) shots in each device, users are provided with approximately 300 sessions of full body hair removal — the device can even be shared with others! Just remember to clean it before and after every use. The device also features a built-in countdown display, so you can keep track of how many IPL shots you’ve used, and how many you have left.
Akin to a professional machine in a salon, it can be used all over the body, including the legs, underarms, bikini area, and even the face — adjust the power according to your own preference and personalise your at-home hair removal experience. With 5 power levels, it’s even suitable for those with sensitive skin.
The device also has a cooling mechanism, bringing the temperature down to as low as 5°C, which cools down treated areas while epilating, soothing the skin from any pain and irritation that may occur — this also means users don’t have to apply any additional gel during treatment.
The first release of the Home Edition device sold out quickly — no surprise there. Luckily, in celebration of their 10th anniversary, Datsumo Labo is now opening pre-orders for the device!
The first rental service of its kind in the industry, Datsumo Labo’s Home Edition hair removal device is available at a discounted price of $98 a month (U.P. $138) — the device is yours to keep after a 10-month rental period, but you can stop your rental any time after 4 months. Limited stocks are also available for purchase at $888 (U.P. $1,388). A typical full body hair removal package at a salon can cost between $4,000 to $8,000 for just 18 sessions — with this device, you’re getting at least 16 times that amount of sessions for a fraction of the price!
