What is IPL and how does it work?

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) hair removal works by targeting the pigment in the hair follicles with bursts of broad-spectrum light. This light is absorbed by the melanin in the hair, heating up the follicle and effectively damaging its ability to regrow hair.

Over time and with multiple sessions, the treated hair follicles gradually become weaker and stop producing hair altogether.

Unlike traditional methods such as shaving or waxing, IPL offers a long-term solution for hair reduction.

It’s a safe and effective treatment that can be tailored to suit different skin types and areas of the body, providing smooth and hair-free results.

What is IPL good for?

Concerns that IPL hair removal is effective for:

  • Excessive hair growth due to hormonal imbalances (such as hirsutism)

  • Unwanted hair on various parts of the body (legs, arms, underarms, bikini area, face, etc.)

  • Ingrown hairs and razor bumps caused by shaving

  • Constant need for shaving or waxing, leading to time-consuming grooming routines

  • Skin irritation and discomfort from other hair removal methods

  • Desire for long-term hair reduction or removal without the hassle of frequent maintenance

Why do I get this unwanted hair growing?

To understand how to get rid of hair, it is important to understand how hair grows. 

Hair growth is cyclical and begins with the growth cycle known as anagen. Anagen may last for two to seven years (the duration of this cycle determines the maximum hair length). The following anagen is catagen, a transition cycle that lasts for about 10 to 14 days. Telogen (the resting phase) follows catagen and lasts from two to four months. 

The most common areas for hair reduction in women are the upper lip, chin, cheeks, legs, armpits, and bikini area. Many factors, including genetics and hormones, control hair density in these areas. Some ethnic groups have increased hair density above the lip. Diseases such as polycystic ovary disease and certain medications may also stimulate excessive hair growth. 

How does IPL get rid of unwanted hair?

IPL is a safe & effective way to get rid of unwanted hair. 

The principle underlying IPL hair removal is known as selective thermolysis and it refers to light energy that can target one colour or tissue without affecting another. 

When applied to hair reduction, IPL targets pigment at the base of the follicle to destroy the matrix stem cells. Most hair removal IPL&laser systems work well when used on light skin and dark hair. This combination allows energy from the laser to pass through the skin and get absorbed by the dark hair. 

When used on dark skin, the energy gets absorbed by the skin and may cause loss of pigment or scarring without affecting the hairs. 

Can IPL be used on any skin type?

 IPL is best & safest when used on the lighter sin types (Types 1-3 on the Fitzpatrick scale):

1: always burns, never tans (pale, freckles).
2: usually burns, minimal tanning.
3: sometimes burns mildly, tans uniformly.
4: burns minimally, always tans well (moderate brown).
5: very rarely burns, tans very easily (dark brown).
6: Never burns (deeply pigmented dark brown to darkest brown).
