Arrow Product details

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.

A great new hair removal system. I have fair, extremely sensitive skin and dark brown hair. I found my initial spot tests (which I thoroughly recommend doing) were a bit uncomfortable on my bikini line, so I keep it on a low setting, but my legs could manage a much higher setting without discomfort. Certainly less than my epilator! The device is easy to use; just plug it in and switch it on. It only has two buttons to contend with and is nice and light in the hand. I recommend having a plug socket near where you intend to use this device, or an extension socket, as it needs to remain plugged in and the cord isn't very long. After a few goes to get the hang of it, using this device is as easy as shaving or epilating. It comes in a nice box, too, for storage and has a thorough set of instructions that talk you through the settings and how to use the device safely. It's a well thought out product; I can recommend it highly if you're looking for a cheaper and effective alternative to salon lazer treatment. August 5, 2016
Pain-free hair removal I have been using this product twice a week for several weeks now and I have definitely noticed a reduction in hair growth. The product itself comes in a nicely presented box with a bonus adaptor for use on sensitive areas such as chin and upper lip. It is easy to set up and the instructions are nice and clear. My only negative comment about the product is the wire is quite short. After a few weeks of use my leg hair has certainly slowed down in growth and when it does grow it is a lot finer. You have to use the product after shaving and by doing so it makes the experience completely pain-free. The first time I used it I felt a very mild sensation but that soon disappeared. I am keen to carry on using this product as I can see the results it has and already I am not needing to shave every day as I was before. This is my first experience using and IPL machine and I would definitely recommend this product. August 10, 2016
Exciting!! I'm really excited to say I've found something that actually works! I've been using weekly for about 3 weeks and I've def noticed a change in the hair growth! I've quite a pale complexion, with dark hair & I'm so impressed with my results so far and it is v easy & simple to use too. I've been using energy level 5 on legs, bikini & underarms, and level 3 on face. (Does come with facial attachment/adaptor). Face def seems more sensitive I noticed more of a warmth when used on face. There is a little 'pop' of sound when the flash goes off, and sensation like the ping of an elastic band but def didn't hurt! Couldn't feel this on legs at all, but noticed it a teeny bit more on face. The instructions are easy to follow, but the lady at Boots was v helpful and knew the product well before I bought. Lead could be a tad longer but I use an extension lead anyway so am not bothered by that. Hopefully will update further down the line (when I have hairless legs!) August 14, 2016
