What is IPL Hair Removal?

IPL involves delivering intense pulses of light via a wide beam onto the hair at multiple wavelengths depths. The light is selectively absorbed by melanin, the pigment in the hair follicle. The light energy heats the pigment and effectively destroys the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding cells.

IPL Hair Removal FAQ

 

Am I suitable for treatment? 

Most people are suitable for treatment. Best results are often achieved with clients who have fair skin and dark hair. Dark hair is more easily treated as it has a high concentration of melanin. Fair hair, however, contains less melanin and is harder to treat. We recommend a consultation to ascertain if the treatment will be successful for you. Grey/white hair has no melanin so is not suitable for treatment. 

 

How does the treatment feel? 

Treatment sensation varies but is often described as “a flick of an elastic band”. Typically no anaesthesia is required and most clients describe the discomfort as moderate and tolerable. 

 

What will I see after the treatment? 

The hair follicles are damaged by heat but the hairs remain in the follicles. The dead hairs shed after 1 – 3 weeks as the epidermis renews. During this period the hairs will seem to ‘grow’ as they are pushed out by the new epidermis. 

 

Are there any side effects? 

The skin may be red immediately after treatment and the hair follicles may be swollen and bumpy but this usually subsides within a few hours. Unwanted reactions are rare but may include a small blister or temporary lightening or darkening of the skin. 

 

How many treatments are necessary? 

Only hair that is actively growing is affected, therefore multiple treatments are needed. Treatment is conducted every 4 – 8 weeks, depending on the area treated until a satisfactory result is seen. The required number of treatments varies, but typically 6 or more treatments are needed for optimum results. 

 

What is the difference between IPL and laser

The biggest difference between laser and IPL, as far as treatment is concerned, is the coverage. A laser beam is very narrow, only covering a small spot at a time, while IPL coverage is several times the area, and therefore treatments are much quicker and much more cost-effective, and due to the advancements in technology, safer than lasers for most treatments.

 

Will IPL be permanent

Depending on your habits (sun exposure, skin care, use of sunblock, etc.), hyperpigmentation problems may be permanently eradicated with IPL. Your skin will continue to age, but IPL treatment resets the clock so you look younger longer. 

 

Why do I need multiple treatments to remove all the hair?

Your hair has many cycles of growth. Only hair follicles in the active growth stage are destroyed by IPL treatments. Hairs that are dormant (have not grown yet) will not be. This is why you need to have repeated sessions.
