What is IPL?

IPL is the acronym for intense pulsed light. It has a plethora of benefits and can be used in many different ways. It is used most commonly used as a hair removal tool but also to remove spider veins, improve skin texture and pigmentation, help reduce acne and even removes some of the signs of sun damage.

How does it work?

A handheld flashgun is passed across the skin delivering a spectrum of light which targets the melanin. The light travels through the skin until it strikes the hair root/bulb. This is where the highest concentration of melanin is located. As the light is absorbed the bulb and the hair is heated destroying the papilla which produces the hair.

Is it safe for all skin types?

Not All hair colours and skin types provide effective results. This ideal skin and hair type is fair skin with dark hairs as the  light is attracted to melanin. However, this means that those with darker skin unfortunately cannot use IPL as it may discolour their skin. IPL is seen as a safer than laser hair removal for a larger spectrum of hair and skin color
