IPL Hair Removal
If you have unwanted hair on your body that you would like to be permanently removed, it might be worth considering IPL hair removal.
IPL hair removal – known in full as intense pulsed light hair removal – is a hair removal treatment that disrupts the follicle of the hair, preventing it from growing back. Here at Skinique Aesthetics, we aim to provide some of the best IPL hair removal you will find in the Greater Manchester area.
How does IPL hair removal work?
Intense pulsed light hair removal works by using a handheld machine which emits broad-spectrum light towards the targeted hair. This light is absorbed by melanin in the hair follicle, heating and damaging the follicle. This makes the hair weaker and eventually stops it from growing back.
What are the benefits of IPL hair removal?
As IPL hair removal destroys the follicle over time, it makes it an excellent choice if you are looking to remove body hair permanently. It is also less painful than more traditional methods of hair removal such as epilation. IPL hair removal is an affordable alternative to laser treatment which is more efficient in how it targets the hair but is also more expensive as a result.
Is IPL hair removal suitable for everyone?
Intense pulsed light hair removal works best for people with darker hair colours due to this type of hair having less melanin. It is also less effective on thick or course hairs due to being less focused than laser treatment. It is also less suitable for people with darker skin due to the risk of discolouring the pigmentation of the skin.
