WHAT IS IPL?
IPL stands for 'intense pulsed light' and it is a machine that uses heat and pulses of bright, intense light to target the pigmentation (melanin) in your hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin. The treatment is effective against hair in the anagen (growing) stage, and approximately only 20% to 30% of hairs are in this stage at a time, and as a result multiple treatments are required.
The number of treatments required varies between individuals, but a minimum of five are required.
IPL is not always suitable for everyone: those with darker skin have a higher risk of pigmentation issues due to the higher melanin content, which is what IPL targets to break down hair. All clients must avoid sunlight on the treated area before and after treatment, and ensure sun protection is applied.
IPL is a progressive form of hair reduction, and not wholly permanent. Maintenance sessions are recommended annually, or whenever any new growth appears.
