IPL Hair Removal

What is IPL Hair Removal?

The term “IPL” stands for “Intense Pulsed Light.”

It is a permanent hair removal treatment for unwanted hair on the face, neck, legs, underarms, and bikini area or line.

IPL uses a broad spectrum of light to target the hair follicle while leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.

It works by emitting light and heat to destroy hair follicles and prevent them from growing again.

IPL Hair Removal is a relatively painless, quick, and safe procedure. You do not have to worry about red and itchy bumps after shaving, and you do not have to worry about persistent regrowth merely days later!

IPL Hair Removal vs Laser Hair Removal (LHR); which is better?

Both IPL and Lasers removes unwanted hair by emitting light energy. The difference between IPL and lasers is in the wavelengths of light used. IPL uses a broad spectrum of light while lasers use a single wavelength of light.

IPL is significantly less expensive than lasers in terms of cost. In terms of efficacy and safety, lasers, on the other hand, are better. 4-6 laser sessions are required to produce significant underarm hair removal while a higher number of IPL treatments is necessary to achieve comparable results.

IPL is not recommended for the darkest skin tones. Take a look at the chart to find out if IPL is suitable for you.

As to choosing the best hair removal treatment for yourself, it really depends on factors such as costs, skin type and expected duration of treatment that all play a part.

Depending on treatment area, each IPL Hair Removal session can take about 10-15 mins.

Most patients see a difference after the first session, with less hair and slower regrowth.

5 – 6 sessions may be needed over an interval of 4 – 6 weeks for optimal results. The number of sessions required will depend on the treated area as well as individual response to treatment.

Most of our patients find the whole procedure comfortable and pain free.

There is no downtime. Patients can resume their daily activities immediately.
