IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) hair removal is a technology used to remove unwanted hair from various parts of the body. It works by emitting a broad spectrum of light that penetrates the skin to target the melanin (pigment) in the hair. This light energy is absorbed by the pigment, converts to heat, and damages the hair follicle, reducing its ability to grow hair without damaging the surrounding skin tissue.

Benefits of IPL Hair Removal

Long-term Results

With regular sessions, IPL can significantly reduce hair growth, leading to long-term hair reduction. For many people, hair becomes finer, lighter, and less noticeable.

Cost-effective

Over time, IPL can be more cost-effective compared to other hair removal methods like waxing, shaving, or electrolysis, considering the longevity of the results.

Time-saving

Reducing hair growth means you’ll spend less time on traditional hair removal methods. Also, each IPL session can treat a relatively large area quickly compared to other methods like electrolysis.

Versatility

IPL can be used on many parts of the body, including the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini line, and back. It’s also suitable for most skin types, although it works best on individuals with high contrast between their hair and skin color (dark hair and light skin).

Smooth Skin

Apart from removing hair, IPL can also contribute to smoother skin and reduce ingrown hairs, which are common with shaving and waxing.

Precision

IPL devices can target dark, coarse hairs while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.

What should I avoid after IPL hair removal?

After treatment, it’s advised to:

Avoid direct sunlight and tanning beds for at least 2 weeks.

  • Use a broad-spectrum SPF30+ sunscreen daily on exposed treated areas.
  • Avoid hot baths, saunas, or any form of excessive heat, as this can increase skin irritation.
  • Refrain from using harsh skincare products (e.g., exfoliants, alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids, or retinol) for a few days after treatment.
How many sessions will I need?

The number of IPL sessions needed varies depending on the treatment area, hair density, hair color, skin type, and the hair growth cycle. Typically, clients require 6-12 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart to achieve optimal results.

When will I start seeing results?

Some results can be seen immediately after the first treatment, as hair falls out. However, significant results are typically observed after 3-4 sessions. Full results are generally seen after completing the recommended number of sessions, as hair growth is reduced progressively with each treatment.

Will hair removal be permanent?

Some results can be seen immediately after the first treatment, as hair falls out. However, significant results are typically observed after 3-4 sessions. Full results are generally seen after completing the recommended number of sessions, as hair growth is reduced progressively with each treatment.

Can I shave between IPL sessions?

Yes, shaving is the preferred method for managing hair between IPL sessions. Unlike waxing, plucking, or threading, shaving doesn’t remove the hair from the root, so the IPL treatments can still target the hair follicles effectively.

What are the possible side effects?

Most side effects are mild and temporary, including redness, tenderness, or swelling in the treated area. Rarely, more severe side effects can occur, such as blistering, changes in skin pigmentation, or scarring. Following pre- and post-treatment care instructions can minimize the risk of side effects.

Is IPL hair removal safe for all skin types?

IPL is safest for individuals with light to medium skin tones and dark hair. Advances in technology have made IPL more accessible to a broader range of skin types, but it’s still less effective on very light, red, or gray hair and may pose risks for very dark skin tones. It’s important to consult with a professional to assess your suitability for IPL based on your skin and hair type.
