What is IPL Hair Removal?

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) hair removers' produce gentle pulses of light which specifically target the hair follicle or root. The energy from the light heats up the base which damages the hair follicle and causes the hair follicle to go into a resting phase. In the following days after IPL treatment the targeted hair sheds naturally and the growth of hair is inhibited. The result of IPL treatment is long lasting, smooth skin.

Until recently IPL treatment has only been available at expensive beauty salons. This has meant for many people IPL hair removal has not been a viable solution for removing unwanted hair.

Recently several affordable products have come to market which allow you to perform IPL hair removal at home. These include the Philips Lumea, the Silk'n Pro IPL Hair Removal Device and the Remington i-LIGHT. These products are all simple to use and allow you to treat yourself in your own time, whenever you like. They all retail at around £300-£400 so are a favourable alternative to the inconvenience and expense of on-going visits to a beauty salon.

IPL is the most effective and longest lasting method of removing unwanted hair meaning IPL hair removers are now a serious option for at home hair removal.
