At-home IPL Devices versus IPL Permanent Hair Removal operated by professionals
Did you know the average woman spends 72 days shaving her legs throughout a lifetime? That’s approximately 1,728 hours! The goal of being completely hair-free has never been more prevalent till now, with many different hair removal hair methods and treatments in the market. One of the most popular methods is IPL hair removal. You may have seen online advertisements for at-home IPL hair removal devices, but how does it compare to professional IPL Permanent hair removal? Read on and find out!
What is IPL Permanent Hair Removal, and how does it work?
IPL permanent hair removal is an incredibly effective way of removing hair permanently. It is a painless treatment where a beam of light bypasses and targets the hair follicle, damaging the reproductive cycle of the hair without injuring the surrounding tissue. As the follicle gets destroyed, the hair shaft becomes weak and limp, and eventually, the hair follicle dies, and no hair grows.
IPL Permanent hair removal uses low energy and intense pulsed laser at a higher frequency than lasers. IPL is safer and has minor complications for hair removal. At-home IPL devices and professional IPL Permanent hair removal treatments utilize the same principle. They are effective at helping you achieve your hair-free goal, as it is suitable for all areas of your body such as arms, legs, bikini area, and back to your common face areas like the chin and upper lips.
Right off the bat, professional IPL hair removal treatments utilize powerful machines with the latest technology that professionals safely operate to ensure that the procedure is painless, safe, and pleasant.
EstheClinic’s patented French technology, No Pain System (NPS), gradually heats the dermis to a temperature that can effectively damage the hair follicle and prevent regrowth. The NPS has a progressive heating system that distributes energy over the entire treated area by constantly sweeping the handpiece across the skin. With our integrated cooling system, you will feel no discomfort or be at risk of injury or burns!
All our therapists are also trained in medical protocols and the use of devices by our partner physicians. All technologies used are kept up to date to ensure that you receive only the best.
However, at-home devices are scaled-down handheld devices that work the same way as professional IPL hair removal devices. Using the devices on hard-to-reach areas like your back or bikini line can be difficult. You may also be buying devices that are not regulated by the FDA and could be unsuitable for you and your skin condition, which may lead to accidental injuries such as burns and inflammation if misused.
Number of Sessions
