What is IPL and what are the benefits
What is IPL?IPL is an intense pulse light treatment for hair removal, pigmentation, rosacea and broken capillaries. During the treatment, the IPL head will heat the specific area to around 70 degrees for each shot.
What can you expect from a course of treatments?For a course of IPL treatments, it would permanently reduce hair at least 85% with minimal discomfort. Depending on the area, a bikini, Braz or underarm can be about 5 minutes of actual treatment time as opposed to a 10-20 minute wax. As the area being treated reduces in hair, the skin is also softened as the pores close up so is a double dose of treatment. For facial hair, the recommended treatments are carried out every 3 weeks, for body hair every 4-6 week, and generally, 8 treatments are required in the initial course. Please be aware the number of sessions and results can vary with each client, so we’ve listed some of the reasons for you below:
- Hair grows in different stages so only 1/3 per treatment will actually penetrate to the root of the hair at any given time.
- Hair may lay dormant during the time of treatment.
- Hormones can affect the hair stimulation in the body at any given time.
