WHAT IS IPL Hair Removal?
IPL is Intense Pulsed Light, a groundbreaking, reliable and safe method of removing unwanted hair for both men and women. It is the most effective, least painful method available among hair removal techniques. When compared to laser treatments, IPL is gentler on the skin and more versatile in treating a broad range of skin tones and hair colors. IPL treatment delivers rapid pulses of high intensity light to the areas being treated. The light energy is converted to heat, which destroys the hair follicle from its source, which inhibits future growth. You will see results as soon as your first treatment and more results with each additional treatment. As the treatment progresses, the hair will become increasingly thinner and weaker until it falls out. On average you will require nine sessions to achieve maximum lasting results.
WHO BENEFITS FROM IPL HAIR REMOVAL?
IPL hair removal is effective for women and men. We use a dedicated intense pulsed light machine that penetrates the skin at different depths, depending on the specific area treated. Therefore our hair removal system delivers outstanding results on all body areas, with safe, effective, long-lasting hair removal. Additionally, it is a comfortable service to undergo and most daily activities can immediately be resumed.
IPL HAIR REMOVAL APPLICATIONS
IPL Hair removal can be used for most body hair, including fine unwanted hair to coarse dark hair, as long as your skin tone and the color of your unwanted hair are compatible with IPL Hair removal as determined in our skin assessment, then IPL Hair removal will work for you.
IPL VERSUS LASER
Unlike laser hair removal systems, Intense Pulsed Light can treat a wide range of skin shades and hair textures with fewer side effects and at a lower cost, making it far superior and more affordable than other methods.
Have you been told previously that your skin is too dark for laser hair removal? As with laser hair removal, IPL hair removal works on contrast, so hair and skin that are too close in color are not always able to utilize permanent hair removal. IPL hair removal does work on a much wider variety of skin shades and hair textures than traditional laser hair removal. How do you know if IPL hair removal will work for you? The best way is to schedule a Free IPL consultation. Although IPL hair removal works for more people than laser hair removal, it will not work in every situation. The good news is that the skin experts at Body Brite Grand Rapids will find a solution that works for your unique situation, whether combining IPL hair removal with waxing, or simply utilizing waxing for non-permanent hair removal. Body Brite Grand Rapids has the perfect hair removal solution for you, for any skin shade, hair color, or hair texture.
