How IPL Works

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology, known as one of the most effective methods to continuously prevent hair regrowth. IPL is gentle and offers convenient and effective treatment at a light intensity that you find comfortable. Unwanted hairs are finally a thing of the past. Enjoy the feeling of being hair free and look and feel amazing every day! 

With Intense Pulsed Light technology, gentle pulses of light are applied to the skin and absorbed by the hair root. The lighter the skin and the darker the hair, the better the pulses of light are absorbed. 

The pulses of light stimulate the hair follicle to go into a resting phase. As a consequence, the hair sheds naturally and hair regrowth is prevented. 

The cycle of hair growth consists of different phases. IPL technology is only effective when the hair is in the growing phase. Not all hairs are in the growing phase at the same time. This is why we recommend you to follow the initial treatment phase (4 - 5 treatments, every treatment 2 weeks apart) and then the follow - up treatment phase (touch - ups every 4 - 8 weeks) to make sure all hairs are effectively treated in the growing phase. 

Note: Treatment is not effective if you have light blond, grey, red, or white hairs as light hairs do not absorb enough light. Below you can see the hair & skin colors for which IPL is suitable and effective.
