What is best, what works and more!!
There are so many ways to remove hair and I often get asked about laser. I studied Medical Aesthetics and the medical equipment world, in depth anatomy of our skin, hair and more there’s laser and IPL often times IPL is called “laser” but infact it’s intense pulse light (IPL). IPL will give you reduction results but not permanent removal whereas laser will give long lasting removal results which typically makes it more costly. There is also a lifelong commitment of shaving or waxing. Often times waxing if maintained can last 6-8 weeks once you are committed to it.
IPL - Intense Pulse Light is an amazing machine for skin rejuvenation, reducing sun spots, acne clearance, photo facials and more but definitely is not the most effective for hair removal.
Laser hair removal (preformed by actual laser machines) works by heating the hair follicles to stop new hairs from growing. This puts the hair follicles in a state of dormancy for a long period. It’s going to last much longer than IPL or any other form of hair removal.
