More people than ever are buzzing about this new hair removal solution that gives you smoothness for weeks at a time. In fact, millions of women are already using it. So what is IPL, anyway?
IPL stands for intense pulsed light, and it is a form of light therapy, used for hair removal. IPL works by emitting a wavelength into the skin, which in the case of hair removal targets pigment. It works in the same way black clothing absorbs heat on a hot day, versus white clothing which reflects it. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. It quickly turns to heat which then kills the growing cells that make the hair.

How effective is it?
The appeal of a pain free hair removal treatment available for all genders at a low cost is more popular now than ever.
As with all light based treatments, IPL works by emitting a wavelength into the skin. Hair has to be living for it to work however, in that, we mean it has to be attached to the bulb of growing cells – when you pull out a hair and it has that little jelly bulb around it, it’s one of the 20 to 40 per cent of living hair on you body. If you pull it out and it doesn’t, it’s a dead hair which can stay on your skin for up to three weeks. That’s why you need to have several treatments of hair removal laser to catch all hairs in their living cycle.
