3. Comfort Modes: Winner - Air3

However, the Ulike Air3 Purple IPL device offers 3 different modes depending on the body part, taking comfort to the extreme.

Soft mode is best for soft, sensitive and delicate areas of the body such as the face, chin, upper lip and bikini line; Body mode is perfect for larger areas with thick and strong skin such as arms and legs; and Power mode effectively removes stubborn and coarse hair in areas such as underarms and chest.

4. Skin tone compatibility: Winner - Tie

IPL compatibility with skin tones ulike

One of the biggest drawbacks of IPL hair removal devices is their limited skin tone and hair compatibility. Just like other IPL devices, Ulike Sapphire Air3 and Air+ are the perfect hair removal device for you if you have light skin tones such as light, medium brown or brown. Likewise, it is suitable for dark hair colors such as black, light brown and dark brown.

However, if your hair falls into the white, gray, red and blonde category, or your skin tone is dark brown or black, you'd better stick to shaving or waxing to get rid of unwanted hair. Also, you can check the compatibility chart on Ulike's website before ordering the device.

5. Treatment time: Winner - Air3

Ulike Sapphire Air+ offers 5 intensity levels for face, bikini area, underarms, legs and arms. According to Ulike, treating the entire body with the Air+ IPL device takes only 10 minutes.

However, depending on the thickness of the hair, the intensity level used and the skin surface, a full body treatment can take more than 30 minutes. In addition, you can either press the button intermittently to create flashes or hold it down while moving on the skin.

Although 30 minutes is considered fast for a full body treatment, the Ulike Air3 is even faster with its speed of 0.7 seconds per flash. The device also offers an auto-glide mode that makes the session more user-friendly and faster. Its 3 intensity levels are suitable for all body areas.

Thanks to the ergonomic flash window and 2 treatment modes, the device takes less than 30 minutes to remove hair from the entire body.

6. Time to Results: Winner - Air3

What is the advantage of an IPL device over other hair removal methods if it doesn't show results in a short period of time? So, Ulike Sapphire makes the devices that satisfy you with their amazing results within a month. The Ulike Air+ Dark Green IPL device can deliver more than 90% hair growth reduction in 4 weeks.

And the Ulike Sapphire Air3 Purple IPL device is faster with its exceptional hair reduction results within 3 weeks. So, 6-9 sessions in just 21 days can give you the smooth hairless skin you long for.

In addition, the long wavelength of 1200 nm of the light penetrates deep into the skin and prevents ingrown hairs and strawberry legs.

7. Sapphire Ice Cooling Technology: Winner – Air3

Sapphire Ice Cooling Technology Ulike Air3

All Ulike devices feature exclusive ice cooling technology that transfers the temperature of the hot light rays from 158F to a cooling, cold temperature of 58F. This means your hair removal session will be without burning or stinging. The same goes for the Ulike Air+.

However, if you use the highest intensity level or your skin is very sensitive, you may feel a slight stinging sensation despite the low temperature. To solve this problem and provide a better experience, the Ulike Air3 features a multi-level cooling system.

In addition to the patented dynamic ice cooling technology similar to that of Air+, the Air3 also features a VC and graphene liquid cooling system and dual heat dissipation fans. Both the hand and skin will only feel a maximum temperature of 68°C for up to 30 minutes of continuous use.

8. FDA certified and dermatologically tested

Ulike does not launch any products for its valuable users without ensuring the safety of use. Whether it is the Sapphire Air+ Dark Green or the Air3 Purple IPL device, it has been approved by the FDA before launching. Moreover, Ulike has broken new ground in safety approval by getting the device approved by all health organizations worldwide.

And the top dermatologists and influencers also love Ulike devices because it has contact sensors to protect the skin from unwanted burns and an eye protection design that prevents the light from scattering beyond the window, thus protecting the eyes from damage. Moreover, it also offers protective goggles to ensure the highest level of safety.

9. Energy of Light Used: Winner - Air3

Ulike Applied energy of light

Why do you think the Ulike Air3 Purple IPL device delivers results within 3 weeks? You guessed it right! The secret lies in the increased power of the light rays.

While the Ulike Sapphire Air+ Dark Green IPL device delivers a power of 19 J to destroy the hair and reach its roots, the Ulike Sapphire Air3 Purple device has an energy level of 21 J, which interrupts the life cycle of the hair and its follicle.

In this way, it completely destroys the hair-producing cells and delivers better results in less time and with fewer treatments.
