What is IPL Hair Removal: Uses light-based technology to get rid of unwanted hair on the face and body. It works by destroying the hair follicle under the skin’s surface, which stops it from growing.The result is smoother, hair-free skin. How Does it Work? IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is technology that uses intense pulses of non-coherent light distributed over a range of wavelengths (generally in the range of 400 to 1200 nm) to target various chromophores( melanin chromophores for hair reduction). This allows us to generate an individual approach for each patient with specific needs. The broad spectrum of light is transmitted through an applicator. Cut-off filters selectively filter out lower wavelengths, especially potentially damaging ultraviolet light, and change the range of wavelengths targeting specific chromophores. Chromophores absorb the light and are heated to destruction. The technology enables effective hair reduction with 540 nm cut-off filter, this wavelength (spectrum 540 nm and up) is perfect to be absorbed by melanin in the hair follicle. The high energy is transformed into heat inside the cell, that burns and destroys the undesired follicles and prevents future hair growth. An average number of treatments for permanent hair reduction is 5-12, in some cases up to 20 treatments.
