IPL Hair Removal Explained
When the device is placed against the skin, gentle pulses of intense light are directed at the hair follicle to disable the hair root without affecting the surrounding area. This light energy is absorbed by the melanin pigment in the hair to cause the rapid heating up of the hair follicle, and the heat destroys the cells responsible for hair growth.
The hair follicle is disabled as a result of lasting damage to the hair root.
What does it feel like?
Most people experience a warming of the skin. Slight irritation (similar to that of a minor sunburn) may be felt if used on too high a power level, or if the area has not been shaved. Men undergoing the procedure experience greater discomfort – as male body hair is generally thicker than women’s – however the sensation quickly disappears.
Can I use IPL hair removal on sensitive skin?
Yes, the IPL reacts with the hair, so the surrounding skin should not be affected.
