What is IPL Hair Removal?
Intense pulsed light (IPL) works by directing pulses of filtered light into the skin which are then absorbed by the melanin (pigment) found in hair. This process heats and destroys the hair at the root without harming the surrounding skin. After a series of at least 6 treatments every 4-6 weeks, a 50%-80% (or better) reduction of unwanted hair can be expected.
Will it work for me?
Because IPL light energy is absorbed by the melanin (pigment) in the hair, those with a greater contrast between skin and hair colour respond best (pale skin, dark hair). However, newer technology has made it possible for those with darker complexions to obtain significant results.
A tingling or a slight snapping sensation is commonly experienced during the treatment; however, the majority of clients are able to easily tolerate this sensation without any type of anesthetics. Slight redness (similar to a mild sunburn) may be noted for 1-2 days after the treatment.
There is a possibility of hypopigmentation (lighting of the treated area) or hyperpigmentation (darkening of the treated area). Although very rare, other side effects include blistering, scarring and infection.
