IPL Hair Removal is the most convenient and effective way to remove unwanted hair.It is a medical procedure that uses a concentrated beam of light to remove unwanted hair.
Common treatment locations include legs, armpits, upper lip, chin and the bikini line. However, it's possible to treat unwanted hair in nearly any area, except the eyelid or surrounding area. For women the most often requested areas are, face, armpits, legs and bikini lines while for men chest and back is in higher demand. Hair color and skin type influence the success of laser hair removal. The laser should damage only the hair follicle while avoiding damage to the skin.Therfore, a contrast between hair and skin color-dark hair and light skin color- results in the best outcome.
IPL hair removal usually requires a series of at least 4-6 treatments. The interval between treatments vary depending on the location (2-6 Weeks).
We use Candela Ellipse IPL systems. With Ellipse you get one of the fastest hair removal treatments on the market applicable for skin type I -VI. The visible light produced by Ellipse IPL systems is carefully controlled to ensure the correct pulse length, wavelengths and right amount of energy to destroy the follicle.
Controlled pulses of light penetrate the epidermis and are absorbed by melanin in the hair contained in the follicle. Melanin converts the light energy into heat. This heat is transferred to the hair follicle, which destroys it and making it unable to produce a new hair. Hair in the resting (telogen stage) are treated later. The treatment is only effective on growing hairs as these are still attached to the follicle. This technique is called "Selective Photothermolysis”.
