Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) hair removal is the process of reducing your body’s ability to regrow hair follicles.
IPL’s work through the conversion of light to heat. The heat is delivered to the target – in the case of hair removal, the target is your hair follicles. The target must be darker than the surrounding skin to effectively absorb the light from the IPL – this is why IPL hair removal works best on darker, coarser hair.
Only hair follicles in the active grown phase are able to be destroyed. At any one time, up to 25% of your hairs are in this phase. Effective treatment requires a course of treatments of 6-8 sessions. Initially these are based 4 weeks apart, and as your hair growth is reduced the length of time between sessions will increase.
