But how does this thing work?
It is a handheld flashgun that uses a light that targets melanin. It will pass through your skin which focuses on the hair bulb or root. That is the place where it has the highest melanin. The bulb will absorb the light that it releases. The hair is heated and destroys the papilla that causes the hair to grow.
Other types of hair removal
The process is time-consuming and the hair grows faster. For those people that like to shave but you still want their body to be hairless. This process is already part of their routine. The shaving can sometimes cause your skin to rash when you use a blunt blade.
It is better than shaving but it also has its troubles. When you wax there will be a lot of pain especially when you have a lot of hair in that area. Even if you wax that certain area it suddenly grows back. When you want it to be perfect you have to measure it and make sure that it sticks properly.
The process of IPL needs to have 6 sessions to remove almost all the hair permanently. This straightly kills the follicle which means there will be no hair. And you don’t have to grow your hair before the treatment because it needs to be shaved on the day or before the treatment.
Does this process hurt?
During this process, you will feel a little pinch on your skin. Other people may describe it as having a warm feeling or pinching sensation. You will feel the pain on your first try but when there is less hair it will be less painful. This tool is less painful when you compare it to laser hair removal.
How long will you see the results?
It will matter on the area, thickness, and color of the hair. While you’re in the treatment you will see that your hair will shrivel. After a week or so your hair will start to shed. You will see quick results on the underarms compared to legs and bikini lines. I really liked how my hair was removed from the treatment. Check out Only Aesthetics IPL Hair Removal treatment here!
