It’s no surprise that professional hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments today. In recent years professional hair removal has proven to be a quick and easy hair reduction alternative to the challenging and less effective means of waxing and shaving unwanted hair. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) hair removal is a popular treatment at out Hamilton New Jersey Medical Spa for both male and female patients.
IPL Hair Removal: How It Works
Similar to laser hair removal, IPL Hair Removal works by heating and destroying the hair follicle for permanent hair reduction. While unlike laser hair removal, IPL hair removal uses a broad spectrum of light to target the area of unwanted hair from the inside, while leaving the outer skin unharmed.
An advantage to IPL hair removal over laser is that it leaves the outer skin in tact without redness or visible damage. Patients may experience mild discomfort during the procedure and are asked to avoid sun exposure and soap to the affected areas following the procedure.
A typical IPL Treatment regimen includes four to six treatments every 2 weeks to achieve optimal results. Areas of treatment include the chest, back, abdomen, bikini area, face and neck, legs,arms and underarms.
Advantages of IPL Hair Removal
IPL hair removal is FDA approved to be a safe and effective permanent hair reduction treatment and can be performed on a variety of skin types. IPL technology allows for a larger area to be treated at one time, resulting in a quicker, more comfortable treatment.
