A lot of women have unwanted facial and body hair that they want to get rid of. There are variety of techniques available to remove these unwanted hair. IPL or intense pulse light treatment is considered as a better choice to remove such hair. IPL treatment is being used for various cosmetic conditions other than hair removal. It is a form of laser treatment that involves high intensity pulses of light to remove hair.
IPL treatment is a permanent hair removal method. The procedure involves light of multiple wavelengths ranging from 500 to 1200 nanometers that scatters in the skin to damage the hair follicles and inhibit the hair from growing again from that root. Different types of filters are used for different parts of the body when the light is passed through the skin.
A fiber optic tube is used to pass the intense pulse light into the skin in rapid series. Skin heats up and cools down rapidly but hair follicles take time in cooling down. In this way, after 4 to 5 pulses of intense light the hair is heated to the point that it gets destroyed. Afterwards, a cooling or soothing ointment is applied to the treated skin to avoid discomfort.
Hair with darker shade take more time to be destroyed because they have high concentration of melanin. The amount of absorbed heat will depend on the amount of melanin. Other factors like thickness of hair and skin sensitivity also impact the procedure.
Not all of your body hair grow at one time, some could be originating while the other would be in other stage of growth. So, your doctor analyzes all these factors to design the right treatment plan and determines the number of sessions required for complete hair removal. You will be asked to wait until all the hair grow mature. Don’t wax, thread, or shave in the meantime.
Hence, IPL is the most suitable treatment for hair removal because it gives you long-lasting results with no discomfort. You can stay hair free for years without the hassle of using razors or waxing your body. If you are looking for a right place to get an IPL treatment then Dubai Cosmetic Surgery® is your way to go.
