What is IPL Hair Removal?

IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light. It is a form of light source therapy that is used to treat various skin concerns as well as remove unwanted hair and enhance skin tone. It also has the advantage of significantly slowing down hair regrowth.

The technology of intense pulsed light was initially developed for vascular conditions, it was shown to be effective as a permanent hair removal treatment in the 1990s.

IPL hair removal is one of the most effective, pain-free long-term hair removal methods. Want to be hair-free with minimal stress and effort and you’ve had enough of shaving or waxing, or forking out hundreds of dollars on laser hair removal, or prefer the privacy and convenience of doing it yourself while you scroll through Facebook, or watch a show?

How Does IPL Hair Removal Work?


IPL hair removal devices work by emitting flashes of light energy which are then absorbed by areas of high pigment-like hairs. This heats up the hair and damages the hair follicle, which slows down hair growth and can prevent growth completely.

Individual hairs usually take one to two weeks to fall out and due to the three phases of hair growth, several treatments spaced apart are required to be able to treat all the hairs when they are in their active phase. It usually takes at least three treatments before you start seeing the results you desire. You can shave your hair in between treatments if required.

Intense pulsed light treatment is similar to laser treatment except for that laser treatment releases just one wavelength of light whilst IPL releases many different wavelengths of light, similar to a photo flash.

The IPL light flashes are more scattered and less focused than a laser. IPL penetrates down to your second layer of the skin without harming the top layer. Laser treatment is more uncomfortable.

Home IPL Treatment Benefits

Long Term Hair Removal
One of the main IPL benefits is that treatment destroys hair follicles in the “growth” stage. This stunts the hair follicle’s life cycle and the hair is eliminated. Over time you will see less hair regrowth, and you will need fewer IPL hair removal sessions and less often.

Fast Treatment Time
The benefits of IPL hair removal also include the fact that the treatments are quick. You can do one entire leg in 15 minutes, and have long-lasting effects than other hair removal methods.

You usually need 8-10 treatments per body part plus occasional maintenance sessions.

Cost Saving
Cost is a big advantage of DIY IPL hair removal at home. Instead of paying expensive fees each time you undergo laser hair removal treatment you only pay a one-off cost to buy the IPL hair removal machine to use yourself at home, with 500,000 flashes, no refills are needed, and more areas of your body you choose to use the IPL hair removal device on, such as underarms, legs, face, forearms, back (common area for men), etc, the more you save.

At home, you can plan your hair removal for any time of the day or night around your other activities, rather than calling several clinics to find an available appointment.

Time Efficient

A benefit of IPL home machine use is that you can do it in your favorite chair or bed at a leisurely pace rather than as fast as possible at a clinic.
