Intensive Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment for hair removal
Removing unwanted hair is something many of us battle with every day. From unsightly dark patches, to ingrown hairs, to the battle of regrowth – the struggle continues. However, with IPL for hair removal, it’s possible to reduce unwanted hair and achieve long term hair-free skin.
What is IPL hair removal?
Intensive Pulsed Light (IPL) treatment for hair removal, much like IPL photorejuventation for skin, is non-invasive and non-surgical. It uses the same broad-spectrum light machine, however, different settings are used and a special filters are used to limit the wave-lengths of the light so it is targeted for hair removal.
Light pulses are transmitted over the surface of the skin to penetrate to the root of the hair. This pulsed light targets the pigment in the hair, converting it to heat, and damaging the follicle to reduce re-growth indefinitely. The light specifically targets the hair follicle and therefore there is minimal damage the surrounding tissues or skin. Following treatment, the damaged hair follicles will fall out and fail to regrow.
IPL for hair removal is most effective on those with black, brown, or dark red hair, set against fair skin. Hair growth anywhere on the body can be treated including underarms, bikini line, facial hair, arms and legs.
Your IPL hair removal treatment for hair reduction, IPL hair removal is suitable for:
- Those with unwanted hair
- Those experiencing persistent hormonal hair growth (eg. PCOS symptoms)
- Those suffering from frequent ingrown hairs or irritation from shaving and waxing
- Those looking to save money in the long term on waxing and shaving services and products
Areas treated with IPL hair removal will result in a reduction in hair growth and in most cases after a course of treatments, will remain hair free indefinitely. As hairs are in different cycles of hair growth, it generally takes a few sessions to remove most hair from the treatment area. Those with a hormone imbalance may also find they need to keep up regular IPL hair removal treatments in order to maintain their results.
