The new Duo Quartz is the latest home IPL device from the beauty team at HoMedics. Like the original Duo IPL, we've combined Intense Pulse Light (IPL) and Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT) into one beautiful device. In one sitting you can treat different parts of the body using the variable pulse control. Simply glide the Duo Quartz over larger treatment areas like a shaver and deliver single IPL shots to harder to reach and stubborn regrowth areas like your underarms and bikini line.
Gentle to your skin
The Duo Quartz skims gently over the surface of your skin. The treatments aren't painful, in fact, the smooth and pearl-like feel of the device in your hand and against your skin is calming. After prolonged use, you'll begin to feel a growing warmth so we'd always recommend you start with the nooks and crannies like your bikini line and underarms first. They're more sensitive than larger areas such as your legs and arms.
How to make the most of your Duo Quartz
To deliver the IPL directly to the hair root, it's important your skin is clean, dry and shaven before using the device. This means you can incorporate it into your existing hair removal regime (before you can ditch the razor for good, hurrah!). After shaving the areas you'll be targeting, you can use the device immediately. The smart skin sensor will continue to flash until you make direct contact with the skin, so we recommend you work with the length of the cord to ensure you can reach every treatable area. After a few treatments, you'll see a noticeable reduction in hair growth as more hair follicles are disabled. To prevent the hair roots from becoming active again, it's important to continue with a gentle treatment once every 2-4 weeks.
What is IPL Technology?
An innovative and very clever light-based technology, similar to the salon technology used by professional beauticians. We've adapted it a little for safe and hassle free home use. The Duo Quartz works by sending gentle pulses of light directly to the hair root. In doing so, the hair follicle enters a resting phase and sheds naturally.
Can I use Duo Quartz? The Duo Quartz is suitable for most skin and hair types but it works best on darker hair or hair that contains more melanin. This doesn’t mean that the Duo device won’t work with lighter hair (for example, brown, light brown and dark blonde) it just means you’ll require more sessions the lighter your hair is. It will be less effective for the lightest hair colours, like grey and light blonde so we suggest you use our guide to find your skin type and hair colour to assess whether the Duo Quartz IPL is suitable for you.
Do home IPL treatments hurt?
More often than not, no! It’s relatively pain-free working on larger areas like your legs. For those dealing with thicker, darker hair in crooked places like your bikini line you might experience a mild sting/ or heating sensation similar to the gentle snap of an elastic band.
