The Newest Futuristic At-Home Hair Removal Laser Is Almost Here


Whether you’re a man or a woman, none of the current options for hair removal are ideal. Shaving is an every day hassle that can leave you with painful nicks and irritated skin. Waxing certainly lasts longer, but for some people it’s prohibitively painful. Perhaps the best current option is permanent laser hair removal, but to do large swaths of your body can quickly cost you hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.

But now a new hair removal option is about to hit the market: a compact laser device that you can use in the privacy of your own home, called Skarp.

A New Idea From an Old Pro

One of the founders of Skarp, Morgan Gustavsson actually invented intense pulsed light therapy back in the ‘80s. This technology, which is still in wide use today, revolutionized the hair removal world, and Gustavsson newest creation is poised to do it again. This time, Gustavsson has partnered with Paul Binum to create a laser razor that can give users salon-quality results in the privacy of their own homes.

What is Skarp?

Like a lot of today’s innovations, the Skarp laser razor was developed with the use of crowd funding. Through the company’s Kickstarter account, Gustavsson and Binum raised nearly a million dollars from more than 6,000 backers, and Skarp was born.

In addition to giving people an affordable and effective hair removal option, one of the company’s major goals is to create an eco-friendly hair loss solution. Each year, tens of billions of razor blades are thrown in the garbage around the world. Not only does Skarp have no wasteful byproducts, but it also doesn’t even require water to operate, making it ideal for areas of the world currently experiencing water shortages.

Not Like Other Lasers

Most hair removal lasers operate off of contrast. They’re able to pick out dark hair against light skin and eliminate it. While this method may work for some people, it’s relatively ineffective for a lot of people as well. Unlike these traditional lasers, however, Skarp doesn’t use contrast to remove hair. According to the company’s founders, the device works on all types of hair color and skin pigments. And given the device’s small size, it’s convenient to use on virtually any part of the body.

While there are a number of at-home laser devices already on the market, Skarp promises to be something different. So if you’re tired of your current hair removal options, you may want to consider giving it a try when it hits the market in March of next year.
