Men and women have been obsessed with the removal of excess hair and will likely be until they die. Men and women remove from their face, backs, chests, armpits, legs, and bikini line. Not everyone falls into this category, but many do and from many different walks of life. Unfortunately, this process is a constant practice, because it continues to grow back. There are many different methods of hair elimination- from shaving, to depilatories, to electrolysis and laser, but it still seems to grow back! Not so with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Radio Frequency (RF) hair removal technology, it disables unwanted growth!
Laser and Electrolysis Removal
Laser technology removal is a common application, but it is not permanent, and is not for everyone including those with light or red hair colors. Lasers emit a light at various energy outputs for removal, and focus on skin's melanin. Laser hair removal works best for light-skinned people with darker follicles and and works during the growth phase called anagen (this is when your roots are alive and growing). This IPL RF hair removal is not for everyone or every skin tone.
The electrolysis removal involves inserting a fine needle into the follicle root and burning it. This procedure burns the root and prevents it from growing more. This procedure is conducted on each follicle that you want removed so may take many treatments. Electrolysis is a permanent removal solution but it has some disadvantages:
- No standardized licensing guidelines for electrolysis
- The method requires repeated treatments
How does IPL work?
Intense RF technology has been in use for more than 15 years by professionals in dermatology clinics all over the world. This process, based on photothermolysis uses energy to disable growth. This process method is safe, reliable, and an effective tool for hair reduction.
This method contains a dark pigment called 'melanin' that attracts and absorbs the energy emitted by light pulses. The light pulses into heat and acts as a conductor, then directs the energy at the base of the follicle, and this process disables the follicle; thus preventing future growth on a long-term basis. This IPL RF hair removal is safe on any type of skin from light to dark tones.
