Frequently Asked Questions
IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, and it has grown in popularity due to the several advantages it provides. This cutting-edge technology attempts to eliminate unwanted hair, reduce wrinkles, and even out skin tone by addressing blemishes. Multiple IPL treatments also boost collagen production, leaving you sparkling from the inside out! IPL is an essential for anyone who wants to look and feel their best, thanks to its wide range of applications and proven outcomes.
Because IPL relies on melanin in the hair to absorb light energy, it is ineffective on very light blonde, red, or grey hair.
IPL (intense pulsed light) is a type of light therapy. It produces a variety of wavelengths that disperse and reach different depths within the skin. It will give the user the desired results depending on how it is used - whether it is to reduce blemishes, pigment, wrinkles, or hair! It's a technology that can be used in a variety of ways.
Numerous research have been conducted around the world to prove the safety and efficiency of IPL for hair removal. As a result, it has become a very popular and safe at-home treatment.
We always recommend using caution while treating yourself because not everyone is a good candidate for IPL treatments. Some darker skin types will not be able to use IPL due to the amount of melanin in their skin. If you've recently tanned, the same rules apply. Additionally, if you are taking medicine that may make your skin sensitive to light, we recommend consulting your doctor beforehand. Because the IPL contains a bright flash, it is not recommended for anyone with epilepsy.
After just 3-4 treatments, most clients notice a reduction in hair, with total results after 12 treatments. However, the outcomes differ from one person to the next.
The majority of IPL users experience discomfort similar to that of a rubber band being flicked. IPL, on the other hand, is far more acceptable and popular than other therapies.

Except for the darkest skin tones, IPL is suitable for everyone. To find out if IPL is right for you, look at the skin tone chart below. The IPL is appropriate for skin tones ranging from fair to warm tan. If you have a warm tan, we recommend starting with patch testing the IPL on Intensity level 1 and working your way up to Intensity level 2. Everyone should begin with Intensity Level 1 and always patch test before beginning treatments or increasing intensity levels.
