IPL Hair Removal


The main reason some people refuse to wear sleeveless tops, bikinis, or backless gowns is due to unsightly hair in inconvenient locations. Shaving and plucking your hair on a regular basis can be inconvenient and time-consuming, and waxing can be expensive and unpleasant. These procedures yield average results, irritate your skin, and may leave hyperpigmented scars.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is an acronym for intense pulsed light. This high-energy light is absorbed by hair and hair follicles when directed at them. The light permanently destroys this hair and hair follicles.

The following body parts are suitable for an IPL Hair Removal treatment:

  • Facial hair
  • Underarm hair
  • Leg hair
  • Arm hair

  • Avoid waxing or plucking your hair 1 to 2 weeks before treatment.

IPL Hair Removal Treatment Procedure

The number of treatment sessions and treatment efficacy differ from one person to another. The outcome can be influenced by a number of factors, including hair density, thickness, colour, and treatment area. The majority of patients will require 4 to 8 treatments, and each treatment is spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.

IPL hair removal has a long-term effect. However, touch-up treatments may be necessary from time to time, especially in places with dense and thick hair. You will notice that your hair becomes thinner, finer, and grows at a slower rate with each session.
