In the past, women who wanted hair removal services had to endure painful procedures. Among them was the most basic, tweezing; however, waxing and electrolysis were also available to remove unwanted hair. Thankfully, now women can opt to have a new procedure that will remove hair without causing any pain or discomfort.
IPL Hair Removal
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a new way to remove hair quickly, non-invasively, and effectively. The IPL sends out specific wavelengths that are then easily absorbed into the hair shaft and bulb by the melanin in the hair. Once in the hair, the energy from the light is converted into heat that will painlessly heat up the follicle and bulb. This causes injury to the hair, and since it injures the bulb as well as the follicle, it will stop any hair from being able to grow.
If the IPL isn’t able to completely halt the growth of the treated hair, it will still slow down its ability to grow and will cause the hair to be much lighter and finer than it was originally. This will make the hair less obvious.
The treatments for this hair removal depend on the colour of the person’s hair and skin. If you have dark hair with light skin, you may be able to see major results within six treatments while women with light hair and light skin will have to have more, sometimes up to ten.
The location of the hair that you are treating will determine how often you can have the treatments. Facial hair will be done every two to four weeks while body hair will be treated every four to six weeks. The difference in how often your face and body are treated is because the hair grows at different rates and only hair that is actively growing will be affected.
Preparing for the Treatments
In preparation for IPL, make sure that you stop plucking or waxing your hair for four weeks before your treatment. It’s also important to stay out of the sun for those four weeks so that your hair is healthy and growing during treatment. IPL Perth prices will vary from salon to salon so call ahead before you book your appointment. In addition, working only with a reputable company that has experience in this hair removal treatment will ensure that you have a good experience.
Women no longer will have to worry about finding time to get their unsightly facial or body hair waxed or tweezed. In addition, this treatment is painless, which is preferable to having to deal with the pain and discomfort that waxing causes. With just a few treatments spaced out over time, you can get rid of unsightly hair and never have to worry about it again. From hair on the lip to the leg, IPL is a dream come true.
