Frequently Asked Questions

Why people with dark skin or with blonde, red, or gray hair are not recommended to use IPL Hair Removal Devices?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) hair removal devices are designed to target melanin, the pigment responsible for hair color, in the hair follicle. The device emits a broad-spectrum light that is absorbed by the melanin, which then damages the hair follicle and inhibits future hair growth.

People with dark skin or with blonde, red, or gray hair contain less melanin, which can make it more difficult for the IPL device to effectively target the hair follicle. This can result in reduced efficacy of the treatment and increase the risk of skin damage or discoloration.

Therefore, IPL hair removal is typically not recommended for people with dark skin or light-colored hair. Alternative hair removal methods, such as laser hair removal or electrolysis, may be more appropriate for these individuals.

Why is it recommended to perform IPL hair removal treatment in the winter?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) hair removal treatment is often recommended to be performed in winter for several reasons:

Sun exposure: Winter months typically have less sun exposure, which is important because sun exposure can cause skin irritation, redness, and discoloration. Avoiding sun exposure after IPL hair removal can help minimize these side effects.

Clothing: Winter clothing often covers more of the body, which can help conceal any redness or irritation that may occur after the treatment.

Skin sensitivity: Some people may have more sensitive skin during the summer months due to increased sun exposure and heat. Performing IPL hair removal in the winter can help avoid any potential skin irritation.

Vacation time: Winter can also be a time when many people take vacations, which can provide an opportunity to take a break from daily routines and undergo IPL hair removal without worrying about the disruption to their normal activities.

It is important to note that IPL hair removal can be performed year-round, and the best time to undergo treatment will depend on individual preferences and skin sensitivities. It is always advisable to consult with a dermatologist or licensed professional for personalized recommendations.

How long does it take to be effective?

The length of time required for Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) hair removal treatment to be effective varies depending on several factors, including:

Body area: Larger body areas, such as legs or back, may require more time to treat than smaller areas, such as the upper lip or chin.

Hair density: People with denser hair growth may require more treatments than those with finer hair.

Hair color: Darker hair absorbs more light, making it easier to target with IPL treatment. Light-colored hair may require additional treatments to achieve the same results.

Typically, IPL hair removal requires multiple sessions to achieve optimal results. The number of sessions required can range from 4 to 8 or more, with each session spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. After several treatments, most people will notice a significant reduction in hair growth, with some experiencing permanent hair reduction.

It is important to note that individual results can vary, and it is always advisable to consult with a dermatologist or licensed professional for personalized recommendations and to determine the best treatment plan for your specific needs and goals.

How frequently should I use this?

Initially, you can use the IPL hair removal device two to three times a week for the first four weeks. In the next two weeks, you can reduce the usage to one to two times a week. Then, for weeks seven to eight, use it once a week. If there are still some residual hairs growing, you can use the device once every two months for touch-ups.

Which energy level should I use?

There is no one-size-fits-all solution for IPL hair removal. It's recommended to start with the lowest setting and gradually increase it. Before increasing the level, it's advisable to perform a test patch on a less sensitive area such as your arm or leg to gauge your tolerance.
