Removing unwanted hair can become quite tedious. Shaving is the fastest way to remove unwanted hair, but the results only last one or two days. Shaving can also leave behind unwanted stubble and razor bumps. Waxing can last up to eight weeks, but it can be very painful. It can also irritate the skin.
IPL professional hair removal is a method that can permanently reduce hair growth. It can be used on the chest, face, legs, arms, stomach, thighs and bikini line. Most people only require between four and six treatments before they see the results.
What are the benefits of IPL hair removal?
- IPL hair removal works well for most skin tones
- It is more precise than shaving or waxing
- It destroys the hair follicle for permanent hair reduction
- It can save you money in the long run by cutting out waxing treatments and shaving supplies
- It is safe, effective and FDA approved.
There is minimal preparation needed for IPL hair removal. Patients should make sure that they limit sun exposure for at least six weeks before their treatment. Sun exposure decreases the efficacy of laser hair removal, and it also increases the likelihood of complications.
The amount of time that IPL hair removal takes can vary, depending on the area of the body that is being treated. Small areas of the body, such as the chin or upper lip, can be treated in less time. It may take up to an hour to treat large areas of the body, such as the legs or back.
