What is Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)?
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) is a newest, latest laser technology used to provide a variety of aesthetic and therapeutic treatments. IPL uses high intensity light source which emits polychromatic light. Because this flashlamp works with non-coherent light in a broad wavelength spectrum of 400-1400nm., it allows in selecting individual treatment parameters & adapting to different indications and skin types. Also, IPL utilizes filters which have the ability to regulate the light spectrum to better target various skin problems with minimal discomfort and less downtime.
Currently IPL is the most popular and effective method which provides minimal discomfort and less downtime for permanent hair reduction.
How does IPL work for hair removal?
Simply put, IPL uses light energy which is converted into heat or thermal energy which causes thermal injury of stem cells (permanent hair loss) or thermal destruction of hair bulb (stops hair growth).
How many treatments might I need and how fast will I see results?
The amount of treatments depend on the area being treated. On average, 6 treatments are carried out, usually once every 4-6 weeks. People with coarse hair need 2 to 5 extra treatments. Some people may be required maintenance treatment over 12-24 months. Every treatment you will see 20% of hair reduction.
What are the side effects? Is IPL laser hair removal painful?
One of the benefits of IPL is that it is non-invasive method of treatment, so it involves no downtime and, as a result, the side effects are minimal. Usually, there may be a little redness and swelling which can be treated by simply applying ice. However, depend on the sensitivity of your skin, mild blistering or bruising of the treated areas lasting from several hours to 3-14 days could happen. Generally speaking, IPL is not painful because of Integrated Cooling (PCC) System for patient comfort. Sometime you could feel like an elastic band snapping against the skin or mild tingling sensation which is treated simply by using a soothing cream.
How to prepare the skin for IPL laser hair removal?
Do NOT tan or use self-tans or solariums during four weeks. Do NOT use skin resurfacing products (Retin A, Glycolic Peels) during 14 days prior to treatment. Refrain from plucking or waxing for at least 2-4 weeks prior to laser hair removal. Remove perfumes & makeup before treatment. Shave the area that will be treated prior to 24 hours to your appointment. Do NOT bleach the hair.
Precautions for the first days after your IPL laser hair removal:
After IPL laser hair removal is important to avoid the excessive heat for 24 hours (saunas, hot shower or baths), the sun and excessive exercise for several days (especially for the first 48 hours); keep the area clean and wear SPF of 30 full spectrum; do NOT apply perfume, creams, lotions or makeup for 24 hours (natural mineral cosmetics can be used). Also, avoid any aggressive skin care products such as scrubs, exfoliants etc.
Who is a good and not a good candidate for IPL laser hair removal?
IPL designs for all skin types (Fitzpatrick I-VI ) and all hair colors. However, people with white, untanned skin are the best candidates. People with naturally dark skin type or deeply tanned skin sometimes experience complication, so they should discuss such issues with an experienced skin care specialist.

Pregnant women should avoid IPL treatment until after they give birth; breast feeding; people, who have sensitivity or allergy to light; people who take contraindicated medications (steroids, hormone replacement therapy) or have contraindicated diseases (lupus, cancer, diabetes); people who have a tendency to form keloids scars or develop increased or decreased skin pigmentation when healing.
