Why Choose IPL Hair Removal?

Many people have bodily hair that they do not like or want to remove, whether it’s on their legs, back, bikini line, face, and so on. Whilst there are plenty of methods of effectively removing bodily hair, such as shaving or waxing, IPL is one of the few ways of destroying the hair follicles permanently so that the hairs do not grow again, permanently reducing the amount of hair growing in the area. This means that a single set of IPL hair removal sessions can replace a lifetime of hair removal routines, and can even work out cheaper in the long run, depending on your choice of hair removal method. Due to its increasing popularity, IPL is available at relatively cheap costs.

IPL Hair Removal for Medical Reasons

There are a number of reasons why IPL may be the best option of hair removal from a medical point of view. For instance, skin sensitivity can result in a persistent shaving rash when the hair is shaved; IPL sessions can make the area relatively hairless so that shaving is no longer needed, or can reduce the number of hair follicles so that significantly less shaving is necessary. Skin can also be sensitive to products such as shaving gels, wax, or hair removal creams; in these cases, IPL is a good alternative option. It is also very common for women with PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) to seek IPL. One of the symptoms of PCOS is excessive hair growth – including on the face. Many women suffering with PCOS dislike the excess hair, particularly facial hair, and IPL is an excellent way of reducing it which does not grow back or leave stubble, as shaving would. It is also useful in this case because a light-based treatment does not interfere with medication. However, because the hair growth is hormonally driven, IPL will not necessarily completely prevent hairs from re-growing until the hormone imbalance is resolved. It can, however, drastically reduce how often you need to shave between treatments.
