IPL - How to choose

How to choose

With so many hair removal devices on the market, it can be difficult to work out which unit to buy. Who is telling you the information? Are you getting told the correct information? How does hair removal work? So how do you choose. Naturally, the Ellesilk 500 Sensitive is our premium IPL unit. Its the best unit we have, mainly due to the better features, but it is not necessarily needed by all people. Read how each unit is slightly different…

Take a peek inside each unit

Advanced DH-500

500,000 flash

Choose the DH-500 if you need to do lots of hair removal and you have regular skin sensitivity. The DH-500 has 5 different light intensity settings, and is perfect for most adults.
This unit should keep you going for two to four years depending on your hair removal schedule. 

Check the hair and skin tone charts. See what you think about your skin and hair colour. 

If you are on the cusp, you may need to consider using the Ellesilk 500. If not, then you should be fine with the DH-500 or the DH-300.

The Ellesilk also has a built in mode for skin rejuvenation.

This unit should keep you going for two to four years depending on your hair removal schedule.

DH-300

300,000 flash

Choose the DH-300 if you need to do lots of hair removal, but perhaps don’t need to worry about skin tone at all. 

If your skin is well within the skin tone chart ranges, and your hair colour is medium to dark, this unit will do the job at a much more cost effective price.

Its just as fast and just as easy to hold. Unfortunately, it has a limit of up to 300,000 flashes, so it wont last as long as the 500 units, but it will certainly get you going for at least a year or two, depending on your hair removal schedule.
