IPL Hair Removal Results
IPL hair removal reduces hair by targeting individual hair follicles with intense pulses of light. Damaging these hair follicles means that the hair can no longer grow back and consequently the amount of hair in the treated area can be significantly reduced.
The effectiveness of the treatment is dependent on a number of factors:
Skin Colour: IPL hair removal works well for all skin types although the best results are on those with lighter coloured skin.
Hair colour: Results are best on those with darker hair. Those with grey or blonde hair are not likely to be suitable.
Hair thickness: IPL works best on those with thicker hair.
To get the best results you will need at least 6 treatments and this could be more if you are dark skinned or have lighter hair. The reason you need so many treatments is because you have to treat the hair when it is in its growth phase. Each individual hair in a particular area will be at a different stage in its growth phase, so by repeating the treatment over a period of time you will get the best results.
