IPL Hair Removal: Everything you need to know

Are you tired of waxing because of pain? Are you worried about rearranging your schedule to avoid missing hair removal appointments? We’ve all been going through this every month. Although society has evolved to the point where we are taught to embrace our natural selves and be more comfortable in our own skin, many still prefer to go bare- a personal choice. And for those who are sick of shaving and waxing to get rid of unwanted hair, IPL Hair removal is the best option.

What is IPL Hair Removal?

IPL, which stands for Intense Pulse Light, is a treatment that uses strong pulses of light to treat various skin issues, such as skin pigmentation and spider veins. Regarding IPL hair removal, light energy is used to destroy the hair at the follicles by coagulation at the bulb, rendering the hair incapable of regrowing.

How does it work?

The procedure involves using a handheld device that emits light pulses onto the skin. The light energy is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle, which heats up and damages the follicle, preventing it from producing new hair. IPL can reduce hair growth in various areas, including the face, legs, arms, underarms, and bikini lines. IPL hair removal only affects actively growing hair follicles, and it takes several sessions to achieve long-lasting results.

Completely Safe

IPL has been clinically proven to provide safe and effective long-term hair removal results on the face and body. A fully trained, experienced, and skilled IPL practitioner with extensive system knowledge will be used, so you can relax knowing you are in good hands. IPL treatment can be done in the following areas

  • Forehead
  • Between brows
  • Cheeks
  • Side of face
  • Upper lip
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Shoulders

Quick and convenient

The length of an IPL session depends on the area of your unwanted hair, but most appointments last around 30 minutes. It is quick and convenient and will save you time when performing other hair removal tasks at home.

It is completely harmless

Compared to other hair removals methods, such as epilation and waxing, the IPL hair removal procedure is virtually painless. The treated area may appear slightly red and tender immediately following treatment, but this is normal and causes no concern. Within a week or so, the treated hairs will begin to shed, and you will feel nothing.

Reduces hair growth

Because Intense Pulse Light removes hair directly from the root, there is much less chance of regrowth. Compared to razors and creams, it provides a much more permanent form of hair reduction. IPL treatments can permanently reduce hair growth over time if you continue to use them.

Sum Up

IPL hair removal can be done at any time! However, you should avoid direct sunlight to avoid potential complications. To learn more about IPL hair removal, schedule a consultation to talk to our practitioners at BitCare.
