Removing unwanted hairs has been a time consuming and discomforting process for a long time. But with the introduction of latest Intense Pulse light therapy, it has become much easier to remove unwanted hairs from any part of the body.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a cosmetic procedure which is used for correcting numerous dermatological issues including hair removal.

How does it work?

Intense pulse light, when applied to the skin, targets the deeper skin pigments of the hair follicles. This light is attracted by the follicle which ultimately heats it up and damages the stem cell of the follicle making it impossible for hair to regrow. So, once hair follicles are removed, you will get a permanent hair free skin.


How is it different from laser hair removal?

Unlike laser treatments, which radiate a particular wavelength, IPL works like a blazing light, conveying scattered wavelengths of light, making IPL exceptionally focused on. That additionally implies it influences the shade in your skin as well, so IPL just truly works for those with fair skin and dark hair.

How to prepare for an IPL hair removal treatment?

Before your IPL hair removal treatment starts, you will have a pre-op session with a specialist. The doctor will examine your skin condition and let you know if there is any problem. Later, he or she will suggest the better treatment for your condition. Moreover, you will be asked to avoid certain activities like sunlight exposure, tanning medicines, waxing or any other hair removal procedure and collagen injections before the treatment.

During procedure

Your therapist first cleans treatment areas. He or she will apply cooling agent on the skin to make it smoother for you. Then the treatment starts by applying Pulse lights on to the skin.
