What is IPL or Intense Pulse Light Hair Removal?
The word IPL is an abbreviation for Intense Pulsed Light technology. IPL laser hair removal is a harmless, clinical treatment that permanently reduces or eliminates the regrowing hair. Treatment involves the treatment of light pulses to damage and weaken the hair follicles and impair their ability to regrow. Damaged hair follicles are removed, with long-lasting results.
The latest technology of home IPL hair removal devices pertains gentle pulses of light to the hair root. This leads the hair into its resting phase: the hair follicles get weak and gradually fall out and leaving your body to grow less hair in that region.
That sleekness lasts longer and is not only for the legs, but allows you to treat your underarms, bikini area, and even the face too. So basically, IPL really can take the place of wax, epilators, or the shavers.
How does IPL hair removal work?
Pulses of light emitted from the IPL device are highly regulated and transmitted through a transparent light guide, which is absorbed by the hair follicles sitting below the skin’s surface. The hair absorbs from the light, which impairs the re-growth ability of the follicle –without affecting the surrounding tissue.
IPL works through a pigment in hair called melanin, which helps hair in absorbing the light from the pulses, stimulating the skin, and letting hair go into its resting phase. This leaves the skin smooth and hair-free.

Usually, a gel-like substance is applied to the targeted area, and then pulses of light are emitted to the skin, impairing the hair follicles and their ability to re-grow. Most of the hair wipes off with the gel and the remaining hair in the treated area falls out in a week or two.
