From royal pain to royal gain!

Although body hair is absolutely normal and getting rid of it is 100% a personal choice, I for one belong to the group of people that love my dolphin smooth skin. Now, if you are anything like me and your hair grows faster than you can shave off, laser hair removal is a game changer! Nope I don’t mean the expensive treatments at the laser clinic. No No No! I am talking about something even better – Laser Hair Removal At-Home.

Traditionally, laser hair removal is a service only a professional dermatologists can provide in a clinic. But these sessions are far from cheap and may burn a hole in your pocket. Thankfully, My Sheen Skin found us a perfect alternative – Mila. Mila is an IPL At- Home Laser Hair Removal Device with Ice Cool Technology! (Yes I know we are getting a bit fancy dancy here). This IPL device is effective, easy and also budget friendly.

While any At-Home Laser Hair Removal Device available in the market today may not measure up to the in-clinic treatments, this device will save you a few Benjamins and still give you the results you were looking for..

What is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser Hair Removal, in general, works by emitting scattered wavelengths of light between 470-120nm. This means that the IPL can treat a larger area of skin in a shorter time as compared to laser therapy. This light energy heats the hair follicles and breaks them down. Each session diminishes the hair growth until the hair is gone for good. This light also heats the skin cells surrounding the hair follicles. The body will then naturally remove the damaged skin cells and repair it with new ones giving you a silky sheen skin.


Is Laser Hair Removal At Home Safe?

Absolutely! IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is one of the most commonly used cosmetic skin treatment to remove hair follicles, pigmented/damaged skin cells and reduce signs of aging. MY SHEEN SKIN IPL HANDSET does just that while keeping it cool. We do however recommend that you patch test on a smaller area, wait about 24-48 hours to make sure there are no complications. It is important to follow instructions in the user manual provided with your device.


Reasons Why My Sheen Skin Is better

Ever wondered why at-home IPL laser hair removal is becoming increasingly popular? Apart from the obvious reason that it's quick, easy and less messy compared to all other hair removal options, here are the reasons why My Sheen Skin’s IPL Laser Hair Removal Device ranks better as compared to all other hair removal devices.

  1. Cost

A new study has revealed that in an average lifetime, a woman spends approximately $10,207 on shaving products and $10,555 on hair removal creams. Shaving is one of the relatively cheaper hair removal options. Additionally, a woman may spend upwards of $23,000 on waxing in her lifetime (this estimate is based on waxing a small body part twice a month). Laser hair removal salons are by far, the most expensive hair removal methods. Each session can cost you anywhere from $50-$400. It may take 8-15 sessions + 1 session every 3 months for maintenance. 

But My Sheen Skin At-Home IPL Laser Hair Removal Device is a one-time investment of $299.99.


  1. Hair-Regrowth

To understand hair re-growth, we must first understand how each hair removal method works.

  • Shaving – Removes hair only from the surface of the skin. Hair grows back significantly early
  • Hair Removal Creams - Removes hair only from the surface of the skin. Hair grows back significantly early
  • Waxing – Removes hair from the roots, resulting in thicker regrowth.

Laser Hair Removal At Home (Mila) is the only hair removal method that targets the root of the hair follicle to cause controlled damage. This makes the hair fallout and inhibits further hair growth.  This also avoids any ingrown hair problems or razor burns that you may have already experienced with Waxing and Shaving.


  1. Permanent Results

If you are anything like me and love going to the beach, trying to have a beach ready body all the time is a massive struggle. Laser Hair Removal At-Home is what is thought to be the holy grail of hair removal methods. So lets talk numbers here! When you shave (followed by exfoliating to avoid razor bumps and don’t even get me started on strawberry legs) your hair grows back in the blink of an eye – literally. Okay! Not that quick but anywhere between 1-3 days on an average. A bit longer for hair removal creams – between 3-7 days. Waxing does last up to 15 days when you can start feeling the pesky prickly hair. The part I personally disliked about this is that, now, I have to wait for 2 more weeks before I can get this waxed again. Arrgh!

I urge you to try out this device from My Sheen Skin. It offers extremely long-lasting results however no form of laser hair removal is permanent, even at the clinics. Just be careful when companies claim “permanent” hair removal, as this term technically means that there will be no regrowth of hair for 6 months. To maintain long-term results, we advise using this device three – four times a week for 8 weeks, followed by once a week from week 8-12, then as required for maintenance.


  1. Packed with features

This is one of the main reasons I would recommend the My Sheen Skin – IPL Handset amongst all the hundreds of devices out there

  • It has 5 Levels of intensity to choose from which is suitable for all skin types except darkest skin type.
  • The device comes with a quartz tube (compared to a glass tube found in most devices) extending the life of the device to 999999 flashes to last you forever!
  • A superior grade filter on the laser window to protect your skin and your eyes from the flash.
  • Automatic Mode for those big areas that you need to tackle

..and last but not least and certainly one of my favourite

  • The Ice Cool technology – The cooling you feel while you are gliding this over your legs makes the whole experience a virtually painless one.



  1. Convenience

The Ultimate Benefit of At-Home IPL Laser hair Removal is Convenience.

  1. Target multiple areas with 1 device – Bikini line, underarms, back, legs, etc
  2. No hair patches
  3. Less messy
  4. Pain-free with our Ice Cool technology
  5. No ingrown hair
  6. No itchiness
  7. Smooth skin
  8. Beach ready always!

…and so many more. The list is endless.



What to do once you have bought the IPL handset


Always follow the directions

It may seem obvious, but reading the user manual first and following the steps outlined is critical when using a laser hair removal equipment at home. Shave the desired area to be treated with a new razor. The area should be clean, dry and free of lotions or gels. This ensures that the device can detect and target your hair follicles. Start with the lowest level of intensity and work your way up. As a general guideline, begin by first doing a patch test.


Be patient

Nothing happens overnight – it takes multiple sessions spaced over several weeks to start seeing results. Consistency is key! Every individual and their results will differ based on sever factors such rate of regrowth, color of skin, color of hair, etc. If you do not see results as mentioned, don’t loose faith. Be patient and you will see the results.

My Sheen Skin comes with a 90-day Money Back Guarantee. That means you have plenty of time to try this out. But I can guarantee you that you won’t need to ever return this. If anything, you may buy one more as a gift to your family and friends just like I did.
