How Does IPL Work
Light-based hair removal device is a Pulsed Light system that emits intense pulsed light (IPL) at a wavelength ranging from 510nm-1100nm. The device works on the principles of selective photothermolysis. That is, causing thermal damage to target chromophores by using light of an appropriate wavelength in pulses that exceeds the chromophores’ thermal relaxation time but sparing normal skin by limiting the pulse width below the thermal relaxation time for skin.
What To Expect
(1) First 6 weeks
You should not see any significant side effects from treatment. In the first few weeks of initial treatments, you will still see hair growing. These are likely to be hairs that were missed during treatment i.e. they were lying dormant and not in their growth phase (Anagen) during treatment.
(2) 6-12 weeks
You should see a reduction in hair growth. However, many hairs may still not have been treated in their growth phase. It is important to continue the weekly treatments.
(3) After 12 weeks
After 12 weeks treatment, you should see a significant reduction in hair. Any remaining hairs should be finer and lighter in color. Continued monthly treatments should keep your skin hair-free.
