Whether it’s date night or time to hit the beach, you likely underwent quite some time in the bath or shower removing unwanted hair. Even after a good shave, however, you’re usually left with skin irritation that can be embarrassing. For some women, their body tends to grow hair quite quickly, too. So, even after you shave, you may find yourself with the beginnings of new hair sprouting in those unwanted places by the end of the night already. Instead of just using your trusted razor again, maybe you should deal with the problem at its source. That’s what IPL hair removal can provide.
What is IPL Hair Removal?
IPL stands for intense pulsed light. With hair removal, the treatment essentially uses light energy to blast away hair follicles and hair cells. This keeps hair from growing in those areas again. So, if you really want to be able to stop shaving in those undesired locations, then you may want to consider this permanent treatment to remove that hair.
The procedure is quite simple and easy. You speak with a professional about where you wish to be treated and they set up the procedure for you. From there, you just sit back and relax while the light is used to knock out those hair cells. It can sometimes take three weeks for a dead strand of hair to finally release from the skin and fall out. As such, you will need to have the treatment performed a few times to ensure that all of the follicles and cells have been destroyed.
Light energy works similarly to the sun. It is attracted to certain pigments. So, if you have dark hair and light skin, you’re likely going to see the best results. This is because the light is reflected off of lighter colors and attracted to darker ones. Think of it like the sun. If you wear a dark colored shirt, the rays are attracted and absorbed by the pigments. You likely feel hotter when wearing black clothing. Yet when you wear light-colored clothing, the rays are reflected off of it and not absorbed into it.
In this way, professionals can use the power of light to be directed at the hair follicle right to the hair cell. The energy damages the cell which makes it incapable of growing hair in the future. With repeated treatments, you’ll find that your body can no longer grow unwanted hair in those undesirable locations.
