As backwards as it may seem, this is a key step in treating your hair with IPL! For IPL to stunt your hairs growth cycle, hair must be present in the hair follicle. It is recommended to shave the desired areas before using your handset as waxing/threading/epilating will remove the hair entirely.
You can shave as often as you like between treatments. Not just can, in fact, you must. The best thing to do is shave the day before you get zapping, or the morning of, so that you’re silky smooth ahead of the session. Like all good things, they often take time. After your initial 4 treatments over 6 weeks is when you will start to experience smoothness for months on end and maintaining it with one session every 2-3 months. Did someone say amazing?
One of the biggest advantages of IPL over other types of laser is that there is no pain whatsoever. Most of our customers explain the feeling as a warm sensation on the skin. IPL targets the color pigment (melanin) in hair; heating it to damage the hair follicle and prevent regrowth. Whereas laser and traditional IPL hair removal use a single pulse of high energy to achieve results (often painfully and at a small area at a time), pain free IPL uses in-motion technology at a lower intensity, with often a broader coverage, to gently heat the hair follicle melanin and damage the follicle to prevent regrowth which means pain-free and effective hair removal at home.
