IPL, also known as intense pulsed light, can be used to permanently reduce hair growth. This decreases the need to shave or wax to remove unsightly and unwanted hair growth in certain areas of the body.
How is it done?
Intense pulsed light is applied to the skin, targeting melanin (dark pigment). This light travels through the skin and strikes the hair shafts or roots. Light is absorbed by the hair roots and this causes the roots to be heated and destroyed.
Hair follicles go through different phases of growth and take turns to be active. As this treatment only targets active follicles, multiple sessions would be required to eventually target most of the hair follicles in the target treatment area.
This treatment works best with dark and coarse hair. It is best not to wax or epilate hair before an IPL treatment as that removes the hair shafts, making the IPL treatment less effective.
After a few sessions of IPL, the hair that regrows is much finer and less dark. Eventually, hair regrowth is reduced, leading to smoother skin. As IPL also targets melanin in the skin, the areas that have been treated will also become brighter.
Besides hair removal, IPL can also be used to brighten the skin tone, for facial rejuvenation, treat pigmentation and improve collagen stimulation.
IPL Hair Removal price starts at $60*
