Frequently Asked IPL Permanent Hair Removal Questions

In the world of beauty and personal grooming, the quest for smooth, hair-free skin often leads us down various paths, each promising a solution to the age-old battle against unwanted hair. Among these avenues, IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) permanent hair removal has emerged as a popular choice for those seeking a long-term solution to their hair removal woes.


Previously, we have come out with an article on common questions for IPL Hair Removal. For anyone considering IPL Hair Removal, here’s our updated frequently asked questions answers!


What exactly is IPL Permanent Hair Removal?


IPL permanent hair removal is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that utilizes broad-spectrum light to target and disable hair follicles, thereby inhibiting hair growth over time. Unlike traditional methods like shaving or waxing, which offer temporary results, IPL aims to provide long-lasting hair reduction.


How does it work?


During an IPL session, a handheld device emits pulses of light energy, which are absorbed by the melanin in the hair shaft. This energy is then converted into heat, damaging the hair follicle and impairing its ability to grow new hair. Over multiple sessions, the targeted follicles become progressively weaker, resulting in reduced hair growth in the treated area.


Is IPL Permanent Hair Removal Safe?


When performed by a qualified and experienced practitioner, IPL permanent hair removal is generally considered safe for most skin types. However, it’s essential to undergo a thorough consultation to assess your suitability for the treatment and to discuss any potential risks or side effects.


EstheClinic’s IPL Permanent hair removal is 100% painless, safe, and has no downtime. In contrast to conventional systems that employ abrupt and often uncomfortable pulses to eliminate hair, the NPS features a progressive heating mechanism that evenly disperses energy across the treated area. This innovative approach not only eradicates hair but also targets the germ cells responsible for regrowth by gently warming the hair follicle. Importantly, this process is accomplished without causing discomfort, injury, or the risk of burns.


How many sessions are needed to see results?


The number of IPL sessions required varies depending on individual factors such as hair color, skin tone, and the area being treated. It’s important to adhere to the recommended treatment schedule for the best outcome. During your complimentary consultation at EstheClinic, a skilled and experienced consultant will design a suitable treatment plan to help you achieve your hair-free goals!


Does IPL Permanent Hair Removal hurt?


While sensations vary from person to person, IPL permanent hair removal is generally well-tolerated and described as mild warm sensations. Some individuals may experience mild discomfort during the procedure, but this is typically brief and subsides quickly post-treatment.


At EstheClinic, we’ve pioneered and patented our revolutionary No Pain System (NPS) technology, ensuring that permanent hair removal treatments are both painless and secure. Unlike conventional IPL techniques, which deliver high energy levels to the skin all at once, our NPS method gently elevates the dermal temperature to a point where it effectively disrupts hair follicles and inhibits regrowth. By harnessing the latest advancements in IPL technology, we can deliver a comfortable hair removal experience at EstheClinic, eliminating the necessity for numbing creams.


Is there any downtime after IPL Permanent Hair Removal?


One of the advantages of IPL permanent hair removal is that there is minimal downtime involved. You may experience mild redness or swelling in the treated area immediately following the session, but this usually resolves within a few hours to a day. EstheClinic’s IPL Permanent Hair Removal treatment has no downtime, so you are free to return to your normal activities immediately after treatment!


Is IPL Permanent Hair Removal really permanent?


While IPL permanent hair removal can significantly reduce hair growth, it’s essential to understand that individual results may vary. Some people may experience long-term hair reduction, while others may require occasional maintenance sessions to sustain the results. Additionally, factors such as hormonal changes or underlying medical conditions can influence hair growth over time.



Who is an ideal candidate for IPL Permanent Hair Removal?


IPL permanent hair removal is suitable for both men and women seeking a long-term solution to unwanted hair. It is most effective on individuals with light skin tones and dark hair, as the contrast between the hair and skin allows for better absorption of the light energy. EstheClinic’s, advancements in technology have made IPL accessible to a broader range of skin tones with specialized devices designed to target different pigments.
