IPL hair removal: A long-term method to reduce hair growth in hypertrichosis
In today's cosmetic landscape, we see a growing trend towards long-term solutions for hair removal , such as IPL hair removal. IPL, which stands for Intense Pulsed Light, is a non-invasive method of hair removal that has seen a significant increase in popularity in recent years. In this article, we will dive deep into how IPL hair removal can be a long-term method of reducing hair growth, and also how it can help people suffering from hypertrichosis.
What is hypertrichosis?
Hypertrichosis is a condition characterized by excessive hair growth in places where hair growth is normally minimal or absent. This condition can be a major source of discomfort and self-esteem issues, especially for women. Fortunately, technology and science have come together to offer an effective, painless and lasting solution; namely IPL hair removal.
How does IPL hair removal work?
IPL hair removal works by using light with a wavelength of 470x1200nm to target and destroy the hair follicles under the skin. Once the hair follicle is damaged, it cannot produce new hair. This means that after several treatments, the hair in the treated area can be significantly reduced, if not completely eliminated.
One of the biggest benefits of IPL hair removal is the long-term reduction of hair growth. Most people report visible results after 3-4 weeks, and experience a complete and lasting effect after 12 weeks. In addition to reducing hair growth, IPL hair removal is also a practical and time-efficient solution compared to other methods such as shaving and waxing.
