Long Term Hair Removal (IPL)

Long Term Hair Removal (IPL)

What is IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Hair Removal?

When you think of treatments for your skin, what comes to mind? For many people this will be something along the lines or creams and lotions. However, there's one form that can help combat dark patches on our bodies-Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). IPL stands for Intense Pulse Light which is a type off light treatment using strong pulses. Some people think IPL therapy and Laser hair removal are the same since they both do similar things but aren't exactly alike.

How Does IPL Work?

IPL treatments work by absorbing light and converting it to heat, which then damages the cells that make new ones.

Who Is a Candidate for IPL?

There are certain skin tones that shouldn't use IPL treatments. Most experts advise against using the technology on Black or Asian people because of its risk for damaging and discoloring their skin complexion. Blonde hair color can also be problematic when exposed to intense light.
