If you’re looking to remove hair from your body, you may have come across at-home hair removal devices that work by using IPL - Intense Pulsed Light technology. It’s quick, effective and now more devices offer a painless experience. While it can be used to remove unwanted hair from your entire body, many question whether it’s safe for your face too.
But what exactly is IPL hair removal, how does it work on your face and what are the best devices to use? We reveal all here…
What is IPL hair removal?
IPL hair removal is a safe, effective and non-invasive way to remove unwanted hair. It can be used all over the body and is a very popular treatment for the face too. It works by sending very gentle pulses of light into the hair root making it go into a resting phase. The hair then falls out and, over time, grows back less.
It isn’t just effective at removing hair but can also be used to treat broken capillaries and redness, which are commonly found on the face.
Why choose IPL hair removal for your face?
As one of the most sensitive areas on your body, it’s crucial that you treat your face with products and devices that are safe to do so - which IPL hair removal is. It’s also quicker than shaving and waxing and results last for months. There’s no risk of ingrown hairs either, which can be a side effect of alternative hair removal techniques.
Where can I have IPL hair removal on my face?
You can have IPL hair removal on almost any part of the face including around the nose, ears and chin, sideburns and the upper lip.
