IPL Facial Hair Removal

If you’re looking to remove facial hair, IPL Facial Hair Remover al can be the solution you need!

What is IPL Hair Removal?

IPL for hair removal is a simple, non-surgical procedure that uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to destroy the cells responsible for hair growth deep within the root. Strong pulses of light stimulate and regenerate cells within the skin, making IPL a versatile tool for a variety of issues. The heat from the device is absorbed by your hair and travels down the shaft and into the follicle, eradicating the hair from the root up.

How is IPL Hair Removal Different Than Laser Hair Removal?

Though both IPL and laser devices use light to remove hair by the root, they’re fundamentally different in the type of light they use. IPL uses broadband pulsed light, whereas lasers are typically monochromatic coherent light sources. Both are permanent, with laser hair removal using more energy on the follicle rather than the surrounding skin, whereas IPL emits a more diffused intensity of light, which some patients find more comfortable.

Treatment Areas for IPL Laser Removal:

  • Face
  • Upper Lip
  • Chin
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Legs & more

Benefits of IPL Hair Removal:

  • A permanent solution for ingrown hairs
  • Works on any hair length
  • Eliminates the need for other hair removal methods like shaving, plucking, and waxing
  • No risk of discoloration from vellus hair removal
  • Increased self-confidence

Am I a Candidate for IPL Hair Removal?

If you’re looking to remove facial hair, IPL can be the solution you need! IPL works best for those with some level of contrast between their skin and hair, so we recommend it for lighter skin tones with darker hair. We’ll discuss your candidacy in a consultation and help you make an informed decision for your facial hair removal needs.
