IPL hair removal is a new, advanced and revolutionary method [2011-08-19]

IPL hair removal is a new, advanced and revolutionary method, which can be used for hair removal application. Its technology is aiming to produce high-intensity light for a short duration. It makes use of exclusively manufactured Xenon flash lamps, focusing optics and rapidly discharging capacitors to provide the high-energy requirement.

The Intense Pulsed Light hair removal treatment involves highly advanced computer-regulated passage of intense pulse or flashes of light through a prism, either by a hand-held wand or by an articulated arm. The prism, in turn, directs the light rays with specific wavelength range to the skin tissues until they reach the hair bulbs, shafts or roots where highly concentrated melanin or skin pigment, is located.

As soon as the focused broad-spectrum light rays strike the melanin, they are converted into heat energy. This heat energy is needed to instantly vaporize the hair roots, bulbs and shafts. It also heats, damages and destroys the entire hair follicle and other neighboring cells and tissues that are also responsible for hair re-growth. The treated parts should be kept away from UV rays exposure from sunlight. The IPL hair removal treatment is commonly done every 3 to 4 weeks. The entire procedure often lasts up to 6 months depending on the circumstances.

IPL hair removal is performed by bombarding strong intensities of pulses of light directly onto the skin.  It is applicable in removing hair from all skin types and on all body parts. It is particularly useful in hair removal on different hair colors, excluding the white, red and gray hairs. Intense Pulsed Light hair removal provides a double filtering system and other significant advance technology that ensure safe and effective hair removal.

IPL hair removal is commonly used by physicians and cosmetologists; it is gaining popularity as an advanced hair removal technique among beauticians and non-specialist medical practitioners. It is commonly advertised as a permanent hair reduction method rather than permanent hair removal method. The Intense Pulsed Light hair removal treatment effect can be either permanent or semi-permanent. The effect depends on several factors such as hair, skin, equipment, frequency of treatment and the person using it.
