IPL against hirsutism: An effective treatment

Hirsutism is a condition that causes unwanted, male-pattern hair growth in women. This includes hair growth on areas such as the face, chest and back. Hirsutism can be the result of a hormonal imbalance, and it can also be linked to conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

Treating hirsutism can often be a challenge, as many of the available treatments only provide temporary relief, or have potential side effects. However, IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, has proven to be a very effective treatment method for hirsutism.

How IPL helps in treating hirsutism

IPL works by sending intense pulses of light directly into the hair follicles. The light impulses are absorbed by the melanin in the hair, which is then converted into heat. This heat destroys the hair follicle, which prevents further hair growth.

Benefits of IPL treatment for hirsutism

Silkemyk's IPL hair remover offers several advantages compared to other hair removal methods:

Long-lasting results: One of the biggest benefits of IPL is its ability to provide long-lasting results. While many other hair removal methods only provide temporary solutions, IPL provides lasting results by destroying the hair follicles and preventing further hair growth.

Minimal discomfort: The treatment is designed to be as comfortable as possible, and many describe it as completely painless. This is a great advantage compared to other methods of hair removal, which can often be painful.

Home treatment: With Silkemyk IPL, you can carry out the treatment from home. This provides increased comfort and convenience, especially for those who may not feel comfortable having hair removal treatments performed in a clinical setting.

Skin and hair type has an impact on your result.

Before you go shopping for an IPL hair remover, there are two things you must take into account, and that is your skin type and hair colour. Not all skin and hair combinations will give you the result you want to achieve. The table below shows which skin types and hair shades are best suited for hair removal with IPL technology. The pigment in the hair has a lot to say.



Select the intensity level of your IPL machine

Our hair removal machine has 5 levels, and we recommend that you start with the lowest level. You can gradually increase the intensity, and then you can use our table below as a starting point. If you think the IPL laser feels too hot against the skin, you can try choosing a lower intensity level.

As you can see, you can compensate by using a high intensity level on very light skin with light hair.


IPL hair removal is an effective solution for managing unwanted hair growth caused by conditions such as hypertrichosis, hirsutism and PCOS. Silky soft IPL is a great tool for this procedure, offering painless treatment, quick results and the ability to do it at home. Regardless of the cause of unwanted hair growth, IPL is a solution worth considering.
