What is IPL?
IPL stands for intense pulsed light, and it is a form of light therapy, used for various dermatological procedures including hair removal.
So what's the difference between IPL and laser hair removal technology?
Unlike laser treatments, which have just one specific wavelength emitted from the diode depending on what you’re targeting, IPL has multiple wavelengths (all between 500 and 1,200 nanometres) that scatter within the skin.
What are the risks of IPL hair removal?
There may be some redness and swelling after the treatment but this usually only lasts one or two days. Sometimes there can be an increase or loss of pigmentation (colouring) in the skin. In a very small number of cases the skin’s texture may change slightly. IPL very rarely causes scarring. Long-term studies on effectiveness or safety have not been established so far
Sometimes the skin pigment cells (melanocytes) can get damaged leaving paler or darker skin patches. May not be very effective on red hair, blonde hair, and white hair
How many treatments will I need?
A course of minimum 10-12 treatments is usually recommended, but your practitioner will be able to assess the exact amount needed during your consultation.
