Waxers, shavers, pluckers and epilator haters alike can rejoice, the bumpy and prickly journey to long-lasting and low-maintenance smoothness is over. Fast and effective, the new Duo Quartz is a safe, pain-free IPL laser hair removal solution to achieving permanent hair reduction. The HoMedics® Duo Quartz uses Intense Pulse Light (IPL) and Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT). The IPL function is a high-power one-touch control that is perfect for underarm and bikini lines. The AFT Freeglide option is a fast flash option for short treatments times, which makes it great for areas like your legs. Each Duo Quartz comes with a quartz lamp charged with 300,000 flashes, so there is no need to charge it. The white (or blue, depending on the energy level) light will continue flashing from the moment you switch it on until the device meets your skin, which means the Duo Quartz has made direct contact and is ready to use. Use the face applicator for delicate areas of your skin.
