What exactly is IPL Hair Removal?

What exactly is IPL Hair Removal?

What’s involved?

For those that are sick of waxing, plucking and shaving on repeat, IPL assures permanent hair reduction you can cherish. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Hair Removal uses safe light wave technology to prevent hair growth in the area you wish to target. A minimum of six treatments is essential for effective results where on average; each session generally takes between 10-40 minutes.

Why’s it so special?

Though it may sometimes be called laser hair removal, IPL is not the same. In fact, IPL is a far more enhanced process as it utilises a newer technology which works to specifically target and remove hair follicles alone, and unlike laser, it’s free from radiation for you full benefit.

Dry prickly skin and persistent ingrown hairs are often evident in persons whom consistently shave, pluck or even wax, all of which are short-term practices. IPL offers long-lasting results for enabling smooth hairless skin with a soft feel and a striking look, and after you’ve completed the full course, maintenance is typically low where a touch up treatment may only be required once every six months or per year. Keeping in mind, the level of maintenance needed depends on the rate of your hormonal activity, which varies in every individual.

What does it feel like?

The feeling is more uncomfortable rather than painful, where it’s often described as similar to flicking a warm elastic band on your skin but the more sessions you have, the less discomfort you will experience.
