“I love my V4.1! It has not removed all the desired hair (due to graying), but it has removed a great deal of it. ALL of my dark hairs, especially on my chest and belly, are gone. The hair on my arms, legs and face have thinned significantly and have slowed down in growth time and best part was no more 5 o'clock shadow. I still need to shave my face daily to get that girly smoothness, but it is even barely there the next day. Electrolysis will be far cheaper now and that makes me happy! The V4.1 has been a great investment for my journey to be me.”

How can transgender women get rid of unwanted hair?
Removing unwanted hair when transitioning can be done successfully in several ways. We’re only looking for long-lasting effects worth the time and effort.
Let’s skip all the everyday stuff such as shaving, which causes razor burn, painful waxing that leads to ingrown hairs and stubbles, or other ways you may have thought of to cover up that 5 O’clock shadow.
What procedures remove unwanted hair permanently?
As a transitioning woman, your best options for long-lasting and effective hair removal (facial and body) are:
- IPL or Intense pulsed light hair removal
- Laser hair removal
Unlike other mammals, humans do not shed seasonally; we continually go through three (3) different hair growth cycles, and all three phases happen simultaneously.
The anagen phase is the first hair growth cycle, known as the growing phase.
In this phase, the hair is still attached to the root and visible on the skin.
The anagen phase lasts about 2-3 weeks for body hair, but the hair on places such as your head can last years (which is why it grows so much longer than the hair on your body).
The anagen phase is the phase you target when you want to treat your hair follicles.
That means whenever you are having laser hair removal, electrolysis, or IPL hair removal; you want your hair to be in the anagen phase because studies show this is when hair removal is most effective.
The Catagen phase is the second phase of the hair cycle and is when the hairs begin to shed.
During this very temporary stage, the hair is no longer attached to the follicle/root and is in the process of being shed out.
Hair removal treatments done in this phase are somewhat effective but primarily ineffective in this stage as the hair is no longer attached to the root, and any therapy done will not reach the source of which the hair is growing. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hair_follicle#Catagen_phase
- During this phase, the hair is not visible on the outer layer of your skin, and treatments are ineffective because there is nothing to transfer the energy from the tip of the hair down to the follicle. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hair_follicle#Telogen_phase
Hair growth cycles are why you have to go for numerous laser hair removal sessions because you want to catch each hair growth cycle in the anagen phase (usually 2-6 weeks apart) once the new cycle is beginning.
Now that you understand the hair growth cycles let's discuss the best hair removal method for MTF transgender women.

IPL is another type of effective laser hair removal method such as the Alexandrite laser. It's a type of light therapy used primarily to remove unwanted hair from home, get rid of wrinkles, and treat spots.
Instead of using a concentrated beam of light, IPL devices use an array of light and are A LOT MORE AFFORDABLE than a salon, and you can do it from the privacy of your own home.

Here's what Nikki Has to say about our IPL:
"Nikki - 21 JAN 2021 (35 upvotes)
I was nervous buying this because it seemed a little too good to be true, considering how low the price is for what you are getting and how good the reviews are. I finally caved and bought this product on October 30th, and it was delivered on November 4th.
The packaging was very nice; My first thought was that it looked legit.
It has a little bit of weight to it. When you turn it on, you can hear some kind of whirring noise like something is happening.
Note that the "zaps" are EXTREMELY bright. Even pressed tight to my skin and wearing eyeglasses, I keep my eye clothes during the flash to be on the safe side. The first session I used seemed not to do anything, but I had only used the device at power level 1 because I was nervous it would hurt.
In the second session, I did a few things differently: I turned up the power level to 3 and did one pass of zapping over the areas I was treating as neatly as possible like I was following a grid.
Then I turned the power level to 4, did one more pass, and in the areas where my skin is lightest, I went ahead and did the same again at power level 5 (maximum strength). So each spot of hair growth gets 2 or 3 zaps every time I use it, and I usually wait 4 to 6 days before I use it again.
It really doesn't take very much time to cover a large area because the part of the device that does the zapping has pretty broad coverage.
After my second and third sessions, the hair on my upper lip never grew back.
It took six sessions to get rid of 99% of my chin/jaw/neck hair (two stubborn hairs left on my jaw).
After four sessions, my tummy hair is about 2/3rd of the way gone. My armpit hair has been reduced by nearly half.
I have had this product for one month, and it has significantly reduced my unwanted hair.
For context, I am a transgender Latina woman with light, yellow/gold skin tone, and my body hair is extremely thick, coarse, black, and curly.
Please note, anywhere you have more melanin in your skin, the higher levels can also burn your skin instead of just hair- so do not use level 5 where your skin is medium-tone or tan, and do not use level 4 or up where your skin is dark.
The device has a little card that shows which intensity levels are safe for which skin/hair colors.
I have found the best technique is shaving and then waiting until I get a "5 o'clock" shadow bit of hair growth before zapping.
You will literally smell burning hair if you use this technique, but it does not hurt, and this seems to be the best way to get the fastest results.
You'll notice that a few hairs seem to be zapped out immediately, but most of the hairs that you lose will fall out after a day or two.
Just try to be consistent, and it really, really works.
I am excited about eventually not needing to shave, but I am much more excited by the lack of that post-shave shadow.
Especially for my underarms, it is incredible to see the patches where hair no longer grows and are regular skin color instead of that gray/purple tone that my armpits usually have after shaving.
After sessions, your skin will feel warm to the touch, but I have had zero actual burns anywhere on my body.
Over the course of an entire session, I might have one or two "Ow!" moments where a zap actually hurts, but the pain level is comparable to being snapped by a rubber band and goes away instantly.
I use the "Australian Gold Aloe Vera Freeze Gel with Lidocaine" as a cooling gel after my skin feels particularly warm to the touch.
Please, please learn from my mistake and do NOT put that cooling gel on your face: it gave me the worst acne breakout of my life.
At first, I wasn't sure if this device or the gel triggered the breakout, but after continuous use of the device without the gel, I can confirm that this device does not trigger breakouts.
Now I use a gentle face moisturizer after zapping facial hair and save the cooling gel for my body.
I have every intention of using this product to remove all of my body hair permanently, and, honestly, it probably comes with enough flashes that two people or more could remove all their body hair.
This thing is absolutely worth it and more! Definitely one of the best purchases I have made.
It permanently removes body hair, and there is no downside. If your body hair is darker than your skin tone, you should absolutely buy it."

Who's Using KetchBeauty IPLs?
Frequently asked questions
Does KetchBeauty Have Discounts & Promotion?
How many flashes does the V4.1 device have?
The device technically has unlimited flashes... However, the lamps can only process up to 700,000 pulses of light through them before becoming ineffective.
How Does KetchBeauty IPL work?
The KetchBeauty At home IPL device works by emitting light pulses that target the dark, melanin-filled hairs. These light rays signal your body to send the melanated follicles into a resting phase.
This resting phase leads to the hair root being separated from the wall of the cell. Once the hair root is floating freely, it can’t get access to any nutrients and eventually falls out.
Please refer to "how it works" tab.
Is KetchBeauty IPL permanent?
Continuous use of our IPL handset will significantly reduce the speed of hair growth and ultimately stopping it from growing. Please refer to "how it works" tab.
Does IPL work for all skin tones and hair colors?
You should refer to the Fitzpatrick Scale to see if IPL treatments are suitable for your skin tone. Those with skin tones VI on the scale should not use this IPL.
Also, as red, very light blonde and gray/white hair do not contain enough melanin, IPL energy will not work on these hair colors either.
How often can I use the IPL?
Recommended use: Weekly. Please refer to the "how to use" tab.
Is IPL safe?
There have been numerous worldwide studies that demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of IPL for hair removal. Due to this fact, it has become an extremely popular safe at-home treatment.
We always advise that you exercise caution when treating yourself as not everyone is suitable for IPL treatments. Due to the level of melanin in the skin, some darker skin types will not be able to use IPL. The same applies if you have a recent tan.
Additionally, we advise checking with your doctor first if you are taking medication that may make your skin sensitive to light. People with Epilepsy should not use this product as the IPL has a bright flash.
How long will it take before I start seeing results from IPL?
Most customers begin to notice a reduction of hair after just 3-4 treatments, with complete results after 12 treatments. However, results vary from person to person.
Please refer to "what to expect" tab.
Does IPL Hurt?
Most IPL users face some discomfort akin to a rubber band being flicked. However, compared to other treatments offered, IPL is much more tolerable and very popular.
Please refer to "how to use" tab.
Do I need to wear eye protection when using the IPL?
No, it isn't necessary to wear eye protection while using our handset. Our handsets are fitted with a sensor and will not pulse and light unless the entire window is pressed against your skin. That being said you should never try and look directly into the light as it flashes. People with Epilepsy should not use this product as the IPL has a bright flash.
Can I go swimming after IPL treatment?
Don't Swim for 24-48 Hours After Laser or IPL treatments.
Water activities, like swimming in the ocean or a pool, are a fun part of summer that you wouldn't want to miss out on. Just make sure you wait 24-48 hours after your laser treatment.
Which areas of the body can I use the IPL on?
You can use your handset on your entire body, just be sure to not get too close to your eyes.
Do I need to shave before using the KetchBeauty IPL?
Which hair removal methods can I use between IPL treatments?
Between treatments, you should only shave when required. You should never wax, pluck, or epilate as these hair removal methods remove the entire root, which is what absorbs the light during the treatment.
Can I use the IPL before or after tanning?
If you have recently been tanning, we recommend waiting 2 weeks before using your handset. You should wait 48 hours to tan after using your handset. Artificial tan should not be on your skin while using your handset.
Is it safe to IPL over tattoos?
You should not IPL over tattoos. However, going around tattoos is fine.
Is it safe to IPL over freckles or moles?
You should not IPL over very dark freckles or moles, however light freckles are fine.
How is the IPL handset powered?
Our handsets come with a 12V power supply that needs to be plugged in while in use.
Does this IPL work for transitioning women?
Yes, our IPL handsets work for all genders.
