Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) hair removal uses pulses of light to destroy hair growth cells safely and effectively, therefore removing your body hair in the process. If you're after a long-term hair removal solution, this is a great one to go for as it gradually reduces the recurrence of hair with each use. We've got an array of brands to choose from - why not take a look at our Philips IPL hair removal options to begin with?
How IPL hair removal works
The light is absorbed by pigment in the hair follicle beneath the skin surface, heating it up and reducing the growth of anagen-phase hair. Usually the paler your skin and the darker your hair, the better the treatment will work as the device will be able to detect the follicles easier but that's not to say it won't work on other skin and hair tones, however the results might not be as effective. Check out our Philips Lumia Prestige cordless IPL that has a SmartSkin sensor that is able to detect and advice of the best setting for your skin tone; so, you can enjoy a safe and comfortable experience.
The advantages of IPL
Whilst the outcome is not always permanent hair removal, IPL helps reduce the rate of regrowth and depending on the character of your hair i.e. speed of growth, thickness and colour IPL hair removal could result in permanent visible hair removal; if not it will help slow down how quickly your hair grows back as well as helping your hair appear finer and less visible.
