Intense Pulsed Light or IPL for short is one of the latest craze to sweep over the beauty world with its claims and benefits. Here is the 5 benefits of IPL and what it does for its users.
Laser hair removal targets hair follicles when they are at its early phase and helps prevent hair follicle from growing any further. A concentrated beam of intense light is aimed at the targeted area which then converts energy into heat. After every treatment the hair follicles at the targeted area be finer and would take a longer time to grow back thus effectively making IPL a long-lasting treatment. After treatment, obstinate hairs become finer, rarer, and take longer to grow back. It’s a long-lasting treatment.
Unlike shaving and waxing which would cause you to have ingrown hair, IPL prevents and eliminates ingrown hair from ever occurring on you. IPL is a great option for those who experiences skin irritation from shaving and waxing.
For people who find shaving and waxing a tedious chore IPL would be a good option as it is fast and effective. Each pulse of like takes a fraction of one second and it zaps multiple hairs simultaneously. Small areas like the upper lip would take less than a minute tobe done with the treatment while larger areas like the legs would take about an hour.
