Do IPL hair removal devices work on men?

I'm a guy and am trying to remove some of my body hair using an IPL device. I've used it everyday for two weeks already and still getting a lot of hair growth. I'm barely noticing any hair reduction. I have very dark, coarse body hair, so it can't be the light hair color, that's for sure. I've even got to the highest level (level 6) where I feel the rubber band snap and get that burning smell when I use the device. And still getting A LOT of hair growth after a couple of week. If there is any hair reduction, I don't notice it.

Maybe these devices work on women, but maybe due to high hormones on guys, I don't think these devices can really kill the hair follicles on me.

    Hormones make no difference. However, you may need professional IPL not a home model and you need to shave it first, you should NOT smell burning, and IPL only works on hair in the growing phase which can be only about 30% and hair cycles between phases.
