in the cosmetic industry. This treatment can remove any unwanted
hair in a safe and effective manner from all parts of the
face or body. Intense Pulsed Light for hair removal is also
named as PhotoDerm HR and EpiLight: The pulsed light is controlled
via the computer and with the use of special filters the theory
of Selective Photo Thermolysis is what damages the follicle
and causes it to fall out.

Generally, the IPL technique requires
for patients to make around 6 visits to their doctor’s
office to successfully clean an area; it also works best on
medium or coarse, dark hair.
Even though IPL and laser use light
to cause thermal damage to the hair follicle, there are differences
between the two treatments. IPL uses specific wavelengths
of light that are the optimum for absorption by the melanin
pigmentation in the hair, yet at the same time minimizing
the trauma to the skin. It is different from laser treatment
because it is able to deliver greater energies at optimum
wavelengths while causing less damage to the skin.
In contrast with other treatments,
this IPL procedure has been effective with all skin types.
People with Hispanic or Asian heritage have enjoyed positive
results with IPL, even though clients with darker skin need
to take extra precautions to avoid the over-absorption of
light. Also, IPL may be less effective on a person with blonde
or grey hair due to the lack of pigmentation in their hair.
It is the pigmentation itself that absorbs the light and enables
the treatment to work effectively. This is the reason why
this procedure is ideal for people with dark hair.
After the treatment, you can expect
redness of the skin and mild swelling that lasts from an hour
to 24 hours. In rare ocassions, the redness may last a few
days and there could be some grazing or 'scabbing' which typically
subsides over a short period of time.
