IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It is a type of light therapy used to treat wrinkles, spots, and unwanted hair. This is a very resourceful device that benefits your skin with various uses and painless treatments.
Pigment cells in your skin absorb the light energy that comes from the IPL PRO Hair Removal. Once absorbed, it then converts into heat. The heat then destroys the hair follicles to prevent hair from regrowing. IPL also helps to clear and minimize light freckles, wrinkles, sun damage, varicose veins, purpura, blemishes, and hyperpigmentation. Other benefits also includes producing or stimulates the growth of collagen in your skin giving you that glow and youthful appearance.
There have been numerous worldwide studies that demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of IPL for hair removal. Due to this fact, it has become an extremely popular safe-at-home treatment.
Use caution when treating yourself as not everyone is suitable for IPL treatments. Due to the level of melanin in the skin, some darker skin tones will not be able to use IPL. The same applies if you have a recent tan and if you have a light blonde, red, white, or grey hair. Additionally, we advise to check with your doctor first if you are taking medication that may make your skin sensitive to light.
