How does intense pulsed light or IPL treatment work?
Permanent hair reduction using IPL works on the principle of exposing the area where hair reduction is desired to a series of very short pulses of concentrated light. The energy is converted into heat in the hair and base of follicle, which stops the process of hair growth.
What is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)?
IPL uses high energy light which is emitted through a xenon flash lamp (Handpiece). The hair absorbs the heat from the IPL and then burns the hair follicle at its root thus preventing future hair growth. IPL can permanently reduce hair growth among various skin and hair types. One of the perks of IPL is that this is a noninvasive method to Hair- Removal and Skin Rejuvenation. This means that there is minimal to no discomfort as well as minimal to no downtime.
